For the trip to Lyon, this Saturday (5 p.m.) as part of the 6th day of the Top 14, Stade Français will be able to count on one of its flagship recruits, the center of the XV de la Rose, Joe Marchant.
Indisputable holder during the last World Cup, finished by England in 3rd place, the former London Harlequins player (27 years old, 27 caps) will form the pair of centers with the essential South African Jeremy Ward.
Also first appearance for New Zealand international scrum-half (19 caps) Bard Weber. Not selected by the All Blacks for the World Cup, he will start on the bench, with Rory Kockott once again starting in 9.
Note, in the second row, the Azagoh-Pesenti association, in the absence of captain Paul Gabrillagues. Sekou Macalou is once again established on the third-line wing.
A big first in the Top 14, finally, for young hooker Mamoudou Meité, trained at the club.
