Paris was a part of the Canadian squad for Rugby World Cup 2011 and, for a period, joined van der Merwe at Glasgow. Still aged just 21 the Canadian flier from Ontario is now based in France, playing in the second division for the second placed Agen, a club in with a strong chance of winning promotion back to the Top 14.
Like Agen, Narbonne is also well placed with an eye to a return to the Top 14. Currently Lyon is in pole position and likely to win automatic promotion while between Agen and Narbonne sit La Rochelle and Pau. Should it remain this way then one of the four would join Lyon in the Top 14 next season. The most likely final at present would be Agen v La Rochelle. Agen will face Narbonne on Sunday with Paris starting on the right wing.
So far this season Taylor Paris has played fifteen matches for Agen for a return of seven tries. He is the third best try scorer thus far in the competition and has scored some very notable tries such as the following try against Narbonne in September. Paris side stepped his way past Karne Kaufana before getting past Paul Abadie and then having too much pace for both Cédric Zuco and Adrien Latorre.
