Stade Francais Qualify for Top 14 Sem-Finals

Stade Francais beat Castres 44-15 in Paris on Saturday to earn their place in the semi-finals of the Top 14 French championship.


Clermont, Toulouse and Stade Francais already have their last four berths and now it is down to Perpignan and Biarritz for who gets the last slot.


Fourth-placed Perpignan won 25-13 at Auch on Friday, and fifth-placed Biarritz beat Bourgoin 30-10 on Saturday to keep themselves in the running.


The Paris club, who earned this overwhelming victory after two away defeats, emphatically stopped any lingering chances of Castres making the semi-finals.

 

However Castres have European Cup qualification next season as consolation.

Catalonians Perpignan may have won on Friday but they would have loved to have got the offensive bonus point which Biarritz managed against Bourgoin, enabling them to move up to within two points of Perpignan.
