Stade Francais are Challenge Cup champions.
The Parisian side were just too good for the Premiership side, clinching a famous 25-17 win, their first European trophy in history. It’s an amazing story when you think this time two months ago, they were set to vanish from history.
As a result of tonight’s game we now know the make up of the Champions Cup play-offs. Gloucester’s loss means Northampton take the Premiership spot and will now face Connacht in the first semi-final at Franklin’s Gardens.
Stade Francais will play Cardiff Blues in the other semi -final, with the French side at home in Paris.
Should Connacht get past Northampton, they will face the winners of this game at the Sportground for a spot in next year’s Champions Cup.
