Try for Stade Franšais: Julien Arias

Stade Franšais provisionally moved to the summit of the Top 14 standings on Friday thanks to a convincing 32-6 victory over defending champions Castres.

The Parisians scored three unanswered tries in the second half to secure a deserved bonus point.

Stade Franšais led 12-6 at the end of an error-riddled first half thanks to four penalties from Springbok fly-half MornÚ Steyn while Rory Kockott slotted two three-pointers for the visitors.

But it was one-way traffic after the break as Stade Franšais lifted the tempo in impressive fashion to underline their title credentials.

Fijian flyer Waisea Vuidarvuwalu touched down twice after fellow winger Julian Arias crossed for the game's first try.

The result moves Stade tow points clear of Clermont, who visit Bayonne on Saturday while Castres are six points off the pace.

The scorers:

For Stade Franšais:
