BREAKING: Stade Francais player sacked for 'gross misconduct'

Fijian winger Josaia Raisuqe has been sacked by Top 14 side Stade Francais for gross misconduct in relation to an incident in a Paris nightclub in July, it is being reported.

Compatriot Waisea Nayacalevu, meanwhile, who was also at the Les Nuits Fauves nightclub in the 13th arrondissement of the city, has received a formal warning.

The pair were already on suspension pending a court hearing after they were arrested on suspicion of drunken violence following a night in a drunk tank in the capital. 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 Paris club in a statement, in which it added that it, ‘condemned violent behaviour of any nature’.

The duo are due in court on November 29.

Raisuqe’s sacking brings to an abrupt end a troubled stint at the club. He missed the end of last season after receiving a 10-week ban for stamping on Ospreys wing Keelan Giles in the European Challenge Cup quarter-final. He missed 15 weeks of the previous campaign for a gouge on Munster’s CJ Stander.
