Stade Francais smash Bucuresti in Challenge Cup

Stade Francais continued on from their victory over Worcester last week with a strong 49-3 Amlin Challenge Cup Pool 1 victory at Stade Jean Bouin.

Stade Francais cruised to a comfortable 49-3 home victory over Romanian side
Bucharest Wolves to record their second victory in the Amlin Challenge Cup.

Antoine Burban opened the scoring for the hosts with Jerome Fillol adding
the extras with the conversion.

In a one-sided first half, Francis Fainifo, Byron Kelleher and Laurent Sempere
all touched down with Fillol adding six points with the boot.

Morgan Turinui then scored the first of his tries which Fillol again converted.
Florin Vlaicu, who starred for the Wolves last weekend in their victory over
Crocitai kicked his side’s only points with a first half penalty.

Turinui went onto score his second try and Hugo Bonneval rounded off the scoring.
