Stade Français players go on strike

Date published: March 14 2017

Stade Français players have reportedly gone on strike from training and playing following Monday’s news the club will merge with Racing 92.

Yesterday’s announcement came as a shock to both supporters and players and it has emerged today that the latter have gone on strike.

That means they look set not to face Castres in the Top 14 this Saturday after voting 99.8 percent in favour of taking the strike action.

Stade Français are currently twelfth in the standings and have lost eleven of their 20 fixtures thus far. Racing 92 meanwhile are seventh.
