Morgan Parra and Paul Gustard are off to Paris next season

Stade Francais finished the 2021/22 Top 14 season in eleventh place and have begun preparation for next season.

Head coach Gonzalo Quesada has added to his coaching staff with former England and Harlequins coach Paul Gustard arriving from Benetton. 

Joining Gustard in Quesada's coaching staff is James Kent, who has worked with the club's youth levels and coached the Monaco Sevens team.

Fresh off the back of his final appearance for Clermont, Morgan Parra has penned a deal with the Parisian club. The former French international played over 300 games for Clermont lining up 93 times alongside Camille Lopez. 

Highly rated flyhalf Stephane Ahmed will also add depth in the halfback roles by signing on from PROD2 club Montauban. Outside back Sione Tui is the other backline signing by Stade. 

Stade Francais have recruited heavily in the back row with 22 test Georgian Giorgi Tsutskiridze joining from Aurillac. Toulon's Julien Ory has also joined the Paris-based side as has Pau star Giovanni Habel-Kuefner and Biarritz openside flanker Mathieu Hirigoyen.

Finally, Quesada has added two new hookers to his ranks with Mickael Ivaldi joining from Lyon and Lucas Peyresblanques from Biarritz.
