Suspended Italian player Mauro Bergamasco will miss the Leicester Tigers V Stade Francais Paris Heineken Cup quarter-final on 1 April.

The 27-year-old received a four week suspension for striking Wales captain Stephen Jones during the RBS Six Nations game between Italy and Wales, and will be able to resume playing on Monday 9 April 2007.

The Stade Francais player has 27 Heineken Cup caps to his credit and will be sorely missed by the Parisian side when they travel to Leicester for the knock-out game against the double Heineken Cup winners.

The Italian flanker will miss the last weekend of the RBS Six Nations on Saturday against Ireland after.
Bergamasco is a talented and versatile operator and scored the winning try against Wales. He had started the game at openside flanker before moving to the centre after Canale limped off with a thigh injury.
