Paris - South African international flyhalf Morne Steyn is free to play in his side Stade Francais' next European Challenge game after receiving a one-match ban on Wednesday from the National Rugby League (LNR).

Steyn, 30, who had asked for his disciplinary hearing to be moved forward from next week to Wednesday, had already missed the Top 14 clash with Castres as a result of being sent off for kicking Fijian Mosese Ratuvou in the championship game with Lyon on January 2.

That was taken into account and means he is free to play against Romanian outfit Bucharest on Saturday, if selected.

For his part, Ratuvou also received a one-game suspension after he was cited for being overly aggressive in the match with Stade and will not be able to play in Lyon's European Challenge meeting with Edinburgh on Saturday.
