Challenge Cup semi-final

Stade Francais were eighth seeds in the European Challenge Cup quarter-finals but a 25-21 upset over Ospreys at the Principality Stadium saw them through to a home semi and they are three-point favourites against Premiership outfit Bath.

The Parisians won in Cardiff despite a red card for winger Josaia Raisuqe, and while it appeared that the Ospreys failed to hold their nerve, Bath have not always been a side to rely on in terms of big-match resolve.

They snatched victory against Leicester at Twickenham a fortnight ago despite trailing for almost the entire match but defeat at Worcester last week was a disappointment given the strength of the side they put out.

A try double from Anthony Watson provided Bath with their win over the Tigers and the full-back, named in the Lions squad this week, looks a decent price at 9-4 to work his magic again.
