Julien Arias great individual try for Stade Francais

Stade Francais made it two from two this weekend as they beat newcomers La Rochelle 41-26 in the Top 14 at the Stade Charlety. Julian Arias scored a fantastic individual effort, which is featured here today.

Under new boss Michael Cheika the Paris based side are looking good so far, even if it is only two weeks into the new campaign. Their disappointing form in recent times led to the sacking of Ewen Mackenzie, and later Jaques Delmas and Didier Faugeron.

Cheika arrives with huge expectation, and he’ll have his hands full in the quest to satisfy club president Max Guazzini. He proved himself at Leinster, so whether he can do the same in Paris will be fascinating to watch.

La Rochelle threatened early in the this game, but Stade ran out convincing winners in the end after tries by centre Mathieu Bastareaud, Ollie Phillips, Dimitri Szarzewski, Hugo Southwell and then this great effort from Julien Arias.

They’ve now made it two from two and scored over 40 points for the second week running. Whether they can maintain that form is another matter altogether, but with a backline littered with talent, they will be an exciting side to watch this year.

  • The guy looks like a loose forward, I was pretty suprised to see 14 on his back! Awesome try.

    What nationality is Ollie Philips and where did he play before Stade France?

  • Philips is English he was in the England 7's Squad for a long time, but seems to have dropped out of the reckoning since last season due to injury and then form.

    he was IRB 7's player of the year in 2009.

  • Don't understand why this guy is not in the National Team, he's so talented.

  • Ollie Phillips has dropped off the England 7s because stade won't release him

  • That regather was awesome. Ball landed right at his feet and he caught it one arm off an awkward bounce at pace.

  • Those tries are such great morale boosters fo the rest of the team!! and they really fuck up the opposing teams minds

  • theres got to be an art to getting a lucky bounce, some players are just so good at collecting them

  • "Ollie Phillips has dropped off the England 7s because stade won't release him"

    Not true, he was injured last year when the 7's tour was running, he also sat out a lot of the Heineken cup games at the same time due to the same injury.

  • Great Step, left that guy for dust and absolutely planted!
    Like most 7's players, they don't shine on the 15's stage as they don't get the space to run.
    Great player at club level all the same.

  • Wow great try !! Stade francais looks very strong with a lot of great players

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at August 24, 2010 11:35 am  

  • How come you end up talking about Ollie Phillips when presented with a try by Julien Arias ?

    Beats me !!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at August 24, 2010 12:07 pm  

  • If you type his name into the search bar at the top left you can see another great try from back in '04 agains Cardiff Blues.

  • magic try - I guess along with bags of skill some of us are destined to get the lucky bounce - this fella could turn into Serge Blanco in that respect....faster than than a ferret up a trouser leg too!

  • @ Bradders - if you just look below the video it's right there for you! :)

    By Anonymous Greiffel, at August 24, 2010 1:44 pm  

  • Arias is one the best wingers of the top 14 but weirdly he have never been with "les bleus"
    Maybe because of a clubber reputation..

    arias is a bit irregular but full of skills. i recall few tries like taht against toulouse, biarritz or cardiff blues

    By Anonymous Flooz, at August 24, 2010 2:42 pm  

  • Agreed w/ Flood.
    I think he got called 2 or 3 times w/out actually playing.
    However, he's been dealing with injuries recently and his team didn't so well last year... Irregular is the term + his defense skills are not always the best but a good creative player for sure.
