Pumas lose suspended Roncero for Tests

Argentinian prop Rodrigo Roncero was ruled out of the November Test matches after being handed a 30 day suspension for brutal play during his side Stade Francais' championship match with Toulouse last month.

The 31-year-old, capped over 20 times by the Pumas, was found guilty of brutal play against Toulouse opponent Thierry Dussautoir at the end of the first-half of Toulouse's 26-13 defeat of Stade.

Roncero, who received an extra 10 days because he has already served a 10-day suspension last month for being redcarded against Toulon, can appeal within the next 10 days.

Should he do so this week he could start against France in Marseille on Saturday.

Were he to appeal and lose it he would also miss the Test matches against Italy in Turin on November 25 and Ireland on November 22 in Dublin.
