BEN MOR­GAN Glouces­ter No.8 v SER­GIO PARISSE Stade Fran­cais No.8

Stade tal­is­man Parisse lived up to his billing by sum­mon­ing match-win­ning class when it counted most to claim the No.8 con­test de­ci­sively. An im­proved Mor­gan car­ried strongly from the base of an over­pow­ered Glouces­ter scrum, but Parisse’s try and su­perb high-ball hand were sem­i­nal in driv­ing Stade over the line.
