How can a "Challenge" cup have a semi-final? Either it's a challenge or it's a knockout league, surely :roll:

Stade looks to be something of a Natal Sharks retirement village.

That's for Top14 postponed match versus Pau played tonight. The team which will play Bath should be quite different.

Macalou will probably be a better wing than Huget :lol:

that's not funny. That's accurate !

Couldn't watch the game but he apparently did well looking at the stats: in a match with seemingly very little possession for his team, Macalou made 2 clean breaks and 47m.

Paris will play all their available first choices here against Bath then. That center partnership of Danty-Doumayrou is fkng C-L-A-S-S. Yet another great performance vs Pau last weekend and I bet they'll have yet another superb performance here vs the English.

Everything about Stade sucks from their soulless stadium, apathetic fan base, journeymen players, gobby captain, kit and league form

What's with the co-captains, I can understand a vice captain but will the ref be happy with 2 captains?

havin fun there yet ? :D
There's one thing that definitely, certainly doesn't suck though. Their potential, and the individual talent on that team. If this team plays like they can, forget it. But they are though a legit, full blown rollercoaster of inconsistency.
More tangibly though, I'm worried about that halfback pairing working on the day. If those two have one of their good days, I'm no longer preoccupied.

Attwood back I see :thumbup:
They're going to need him- I can see Palma-Newport and Catt having a tough day at the office.

Lakafia in for Sylvain Nicolas. Paris regain their championship season back row along with Burban and Parisse, but none of the three are as good as then, although they can still be very good on the day.

Lifting legs (both legs and the entire man in the end) isn't allowed in a maul right? Yet Lacey watches Attwood carried up onto the maul with no reaction...

Don't like the Stade stadium. Parc Des Princes was much better.

Rather like Stadio Flaminio and the Olympic comparison.

What are the crowd cheering about? No evidence of a grounding, and footage suggests it wasn't (not conclusive either way).

Ford looking better than recent ball in hand. Excellent timing and choices.

Shame his kicking is diabolical.

Burns with this Bath backline isn't going to be the worst thing to happen to them

Great finish.

Paris can't afford Camara and Bonneval in the same backline. Both of them are in the Garbajosa "wave to the line" category.

It was a tackle that should have been made by any competent rugby player.

Shocking fitness and defending from a Fre team yet again. :roll:

Have been far too narrow for the last 10 mins because no-one has the fitness or will to get wide enough.
