Stade Francais full back Jerome Porical celebrating

Marksman: Jerome Porical

Stade Français will take on Portuguese opposition on Thursday when they host Lusitanos XV in Paris.

Hooker Aled de Malmanche will captain a Stade team that includes France internationals Jerome Porical and David Attoub.

Former Sharks back Meyer Bosman starts at inside centre, with Australia scrum-half Richard Kingi in the number nine jersey.

Lusitanos XV are the third Portuguese representatives to compete in Europe (after AA Coimbra and Portugal) and they will be searching for a first victory by a Portuguese side in ERC competition.
