Stade keep pressure up with Crociati Parma win

Stade Francais kept the pressure on Pool 1 rivals Worcester with a 45-3 Challenge Cup victory over Crociati Parma at Stade Jean Bouin on Thursday.

Worcester face Bucharest Wolves at Sixways on Saturday afternoon and must pick
up another five points if they are to stay in touch with the French side and
give themselves any chance of overturning their home defeat by the Parisians
in Round 1.

French lock Pascal Pape was the man who brought up the bonus point for the
home side with the second of his two tries after 50 minutes and Michael Cheika’s
men ended up with seven in a comfortable 45-3 win.

Wing Djbril Camara and hooker Laurent Sempere crossed for first-half
tries as Stade went into a 12-3 interval lead. Then came a quick one-two from
Pape to secure the bonus point and it was plain sailing from there on.

Replacement hooker Aled de Malmanche and Australian international No 8 David
Lyons got further tries before skipper and flanker Pierre Rabadan rounded off
a good night’s work with a try with the final move of the match.
