Stade Français fly-half Jules Plisson was praised for his kicking performance by director of rugby Gonzalo Quesada after Sunday's win at Grenoble.

Plisson landed seven out of seven penalties as the reigning Top 14 champions came from behind to secure a first away win of the season in the league.

The 24-year-old, who was last capped by les Bleus in their high-scoring Six Nations loss to England back in March, missed out on selection for the Rugby World Cup but will have caught the eye of new France head coach Guy Novès with his accomplished display.

"It feels good to see him kick well," Quesada told Rugbyrama.

"Since the beginning of the season, we have worked together a lot on taking his kicking game up a notch and especially with penalties.

"His many opportunities to kick for the posts came from an enormous effort by our pack up front.

"But he has made a huge impact to day on the scoreboard."

The much-needed win for Stade lifts them to tenth in the Top 14, nine points off the top four.
