Roncero cleared to play in final

Stade Francais prop Rodrigo Roncero will be available for the European Challenge Cup final against Harlequins on May 20 following a disciplinary hearing in Dublin.


The former Gloucester forward was cited for a shoulder-led body check on Clermont Auvergne's France scrum-half Morgan Parra during Stade's Challenge Cup semi-final victory in Paris.

Independent judicial officer Marl McParland upheld the citing complaint, but he concluded that the act of foul play did not warrant a red card, and no sanction was imposed.
