Stade Français players take DRASTIC action after news of merger

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.


Robins Tchale-Watchou, the president of the French players’ union, said in a text message: “They’re on open-ended strike.”

One player who is clearly unhappy with the move is Stade Francais lock Paul Gabrillagues. The Frenchman took to social media to vent his fury in a Stade Francais fan group.


With the news just emerging this morning, the fall-out could rumble on for the coming weeks and months.
