Stade Francais were reduced to 14 men in first-half injury-time of their Champions Cup clash with Munster when of Josaia Raisuqe saw red for foul play on CJ Stander.

The incident occurred after Stander failed to hold onto a pass out wide and as he got up, got into a grappling match with the Stade back.

Raisuqe appeared to put his fingers in the eye of the South African and after consultation with the TMO, referee Nigel Owens brandished the red card.
