Rugby: Parisse out of Six Nations with 30-day ban


Paris, February 20 - Italy's inspirational captain
Sergio Parisse is out of the Six Nations after the French rugby
league gave him a 30-day ban Wednesday for insulting the referee
when he was sent off while playing for Stade Francais against
Bordeaux Saturday.
The 29-year-old Argentine-born number 8, who has 93 caps,
will miss the Azzurri's games against Wales in Rome Saturday,
England at Twickenham on March 10 and Ireland back at the Stadio
Olimpico March 16.
The talismanic skipper, nominated for IRB Player of the Year
in 2008, scored the first try in Italy's shock win at home to
France in their Six Nations opener on February 9.
With Parisse out, Italy coach Jacques Brunel has called
veteran flanker Mauro Bergamasco into the squad to face Wales.
The 33-year-old was left out for the games against France
and Scotland.
Italy upset France 23-18 in Rome but were beaten 34-10 by
Scotland at Murrayfield on February 9.
The Azzurri are fifth in the Six Nations table, two points
ahead of pointless France and two behind leaders England.
