Sharpshooter: Jerome Porical

Full-back Jerome Porical has left Stade Franšais to join newly-promoted Lyon on a three-year deal, it was confirmed on Wednesday.

The 28-year-old Porical, champion of France in 2009 with Perpignan whom he left in 2012 for Stade Franšais, has played 142 matches in the Top 14 and 36 in the European Cup.

The full-back, who has also won four France caps, is Lyon's 10th recruit ahead of the 2014-15 season after Kiwi prop Hoani Tui (Exeter), prop Emmanuel Felsina (Toulon), lock Karim Ghezal (Racing-Metro), flankers George Smith (Suntory Sungoliath/JPN), Julien Puricelli (Bayonne) and Pierrick Gunther (Toulon), scrum-half Matthieu Loree (Grenoble), full-back Vincent Martin (Toulon), as well as Kiwi fly-half Stephen Brett from Bayonne.
