Stade Français Best 5 Tries
Despite not having the best of seasons, Stade Français are still one of the most famous teams in world rugby. The club regularly posts match highlight videos, interviews and best of moments on its website. Recently Stade Français posted a video featuring the Top 5 tries of the season with Pumas international fullback Martín Rodriguez Gurruchaga rating in at third best for his try vs Toulouse at the Stadium Municipal. Rodriguez Gurruchaga is one of six players from Argentina at Stade Français alongside Pedro Ledesma, Juan Leguizamon, Rodrigo Roncero, Gonzalo Tiesi and Italian captain Sergio Parisse.
At present, Stade Français occupy tenth spot but are well clear of Agen who are fourteen points behind in eleventh spot. This seasons Top 14 has proven to be the most competitive ever with the Top 10 sides all capable of defeating one another. In order for Stade Français to make the Top14 play-off´s the club needs to reach the Top 6 who presently contain Toulouse, Racing Metro, Castres, Clermont, Biarritz and Montpellier. The clubs path to the play-off´s could not be harder as the remaining five matches are all against high ranked opposition including away matches vs Montpellier, Toulon and Bayonne. On the other side of the coin, Stade Français will have two home matches against Clermont and Racing Metro which is better than play them away. If Stade Français can win four of their remaining five matches they should be in the play-offs.
Remaining Top 14 Fixtures
March 27 Montpellier vs Stade Français
April 02 Toulon vs Stade Français
April 16 Stade Français vs Clermont
April 23 Bayonne vs Stade Français
May 07 Stade Français vs Racing Métro 92
