Contepomi happy with Stade’s opening victory

Amlin Challenge Cup Man of the Match Felipe Contepomi praised Stade Francais’ second half performance after they beat Worcester Warriors 23-14 at Sixways.

The victory was Stade Francais’ first away victory this season in all competitions.

Last season’s beaten finalists were trailing 14 v 6 at the break but stepped up a gear in the second period to claim a vital away victory in the opening game of this season’s Amlin Challenge Cup.

“It was a good second half display, especially as it was our first away win of the year,” Contepomi told ERCRugby.

“Its good momentum going into next weekend’s European game and good for us in the French league as well.

“In the first half we were slow off the blocks and maybe we tried to play a little to much.

“But at half-time we said we needed to do much of the same but with a little more pace and energy and things got better.

“We got some early points on the board with penalties and then scored a good try.

“We will take it step by step, but it’s a great win and its good to win away and hopefully we will grow from this.”
