France star handed four-week ban for punching
October 17, 2013
France scrum-half Morgan Parra will miss their Test against New Zealand due to suspension.
Parra was hit with a four-week ban for punching an opponent during Clermont's match against Bordeaux-Begles on September 29. With Maxime Machenaud sidelined through a hand injury, Frederic Michalak could get the nod at scrum-half for Les Bleus against the All Blacks on November 9.
France then take on Tonga in Le Havre a week later and South Africa on November 23.
