Dunderhead of the Week
And the deserving receipient is, of course, Sig. Sergio Parisse.
The Italian skipper denies that he used insulting language towards referee Laurent Cardona in Saturday's match between Stade Francais and Bordeaux-Begles. Whatevever he did say, however, was sufficient to persuade Monsieur Cardona to send him off, a decision the official is unlikley to have taken lightly.
It appears that Sig. Parisse will now, at the very least, miss Italy's encounter with Wales in Rome. For all his undoubted talent and quality, he does sometimes come across as a bit of a knob.
