Calvisano v Stade Français - Pool 3


An Tarbh

Paris will be hoping to get the HEC campaign off to a flying start with 5 points fully expected on their return from Italy. Leading the Top14 they'll be hoping to continue their early season form on Saturday.

I think Calvisano will be hoping to keep the scoreline respectable but that might prove too much a challenge for them in this opening fixture. They have some strong forwards like Persico, Gissing, Dal Maso but it's not as if Paris are weak there though.

Calvisano: 15. Paolo Buso, 14. Apenise Vodo, 13. Michael Gallinetti, 12. James Downey, 11. Warren Spragg, 10. Andrea Scanavacca, 9. Paul Griffen, 1. Gabriel Bocca, 2. Leonardo Ghiraldini, 3. Rod Moore, 4. Justin Purll, 5. Ben Gissing, 6. Alessandro Zanni, 7. Aaron Persico, 8. David Dal Maso.
Replacements: 16. Giorgio Intoppa, 17. Lorenzo Citadini, 18. Milton Ngauamo, 19. Maurizio Zaffiri, 20. Pino Patelli, 21. Cristiano Zanoletti, 22. Michael Cagnoni.

Stade Français: 15 Ignacio Corleto, 14 Julien Arias, 13 Geoffroy Messina, 12 Brian Liebenberg, 11 Julien Saubade, 10 David Skrela, 9 Alexandre Albouy, 8 Sergio Parisse, 7 Mauro Bergamasco, 6 Boela du Plooy, 5 Mike James, 4 Arnaud Marchois, 3 Pieter de Villiers, 2 Mathieu Blin, 1 Sylvain Marconnet.
Replacements: 16 Dimitri Szarzewski, 17 Yohan Montes, 18 David Auradou, 19 Radike Samo, 20 Jérôme Fillol, 21 Lionel Beauxis, 22 Juan Martin Hernandez.
