Francisco Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro to debut for Stade Français

The constantly improving Stade Français have the luxury of hosting Italian side Crociati in this weekends round of the Amlin Challenge Cup. The Parisians are using the fixture to their advantage by fielding a vastly changed side to the one that has been winning matches in the Top 14. As such the likes of Pumas internationals Felipe Contepomi, Martín Rodríguez Gurruchaga and Rodrigo Roncero have all been rested as have a number of other regular players. The backs are vastly different to that of the top side while the forwards feature a number of first choice players. There is, however, one player set to make his debut - Argentina´s Francisco Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro. The 22 year old has been named at tighthead prop and will pack down alongside French international hooker Dimitri Szarewski  and also be joined in the pack by Englishs secondrower Tom Palmer and Italy´s Argentine born backrower and captain, Sergio Parisse.

Francisco Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro made his international debut in May 2010 vs Chile and had a memorable match as he scored a try. It is, to date, his only appearance in international colors. He has, however, also played for Los Jaguares (Argentina A) in both 2009 and 2010 and the under 20 Argentina side in 2009. he signed to play for Stade Français after having impressed for Los Pampas XV in South Africa´s Vodacom Cup in which the Argentine side won the championship undefeated.
