Top 14 Star Sacked By Club For ‘Gross Misconduct’
Fijian winger Josaia Raisuqe has been sacked by Stade Francais.
Raisuqe and teammate Waisea Nayacalevu are due in court in relation to an incident in a Paris nightclub in July.
Nayacalevu has been left off with a formal warning, but the French club have revealed that Raisuqe has been dismissed with immediate effect.
The pair were already on suspension pending a court hearing after they were arrested on suspicion of drunken violence. Raisuqe also faces a sexual assault charge.
“Without predicting any possible consequences for judicial indictments, the club has imposed the following sanctions: the dismissal of Josaia Raisuqe for serious misconduct, and a warning placed in the disciplinary file of Waisea Nayacalevu,” said the Parisian club in a statement.
You may remember Raisuqe as the winger who was sent-off last season for a stamp on Ospreys star Keelan Giles, resulting in a 10-week ban. He also missed 15 weeks the season before last, for an eye-gouge on Munster’s CJ Stander.
