In trouble: Jerome Fillol

Stade Français sealed their place in the Challenge Cup semi-finals with an emphatic 36-20 away win over Bath.

The Parisians raced into a 20-3 lead with half-an-hour played in the West Country as two tries from Waisea Vuidarvuwalu set them on their way.

That was in fact the half-time scoreline as Bath struggled for a foothold in the European clash.

Bath did reply in the second stanza with a penalty try going with efforts from Michael Claassens and Jack Cuthbert but it was too little too late as Hugo Bonneval added two tries of his own for Stade.

The game however will be overshadowed by an alleged incident which took place that appeared to show Jerome Fillol spit at Bath's Peter Stringer.

The scorers:

For Bath:
Tries: Penalty, Claassens, Cuthbert
Con: Donald
Pen: Donald

For Stade Français:
Tries: Vuidravuwalu 2, Bonneval 2
