Gonzalo Quesada sits quietly among the journalists at the press conference, and listens to his captain Romain Briatte and his opener Joris Segonds while savoring the end of his beer started in the locker room.

The Christmas meal aperitif tastes of hops, but above all happiness for the Stade Français coach and his men, victorious on Saturday in a one-sided derby on the ground of Racing 92 (48-10).

A one-sided demonstration for the biggest gap in Top 14 history between the two teams.

And if Briatte, reassembled as soon as he entered the lawn and author of the first of his five tries, could not determine whether to speak of a "perfect" or "near-perfect" match, he and his partners washed waters the affront of five derbies lost in a row, including four just last season.

We continue with two kid receptions (Editor's note: Pau and Castres), we have to keep our feet on the ground.


“I don't remember a derby where we played a match of such a level.

Now, we are good at the accounting level, still wants to savor Gonzalo Quesada.

Afterwards, the gap is very fragile, because we are still quite close to tenth of this Top 14. "But after a month of December with offensive bonuses against La Rochelle and Racing 92, it will start to be difficult to talk about chance for these Parisians.
