Stade Francais score five tries in the first half to help them overcome Treviso 50-17 in the European Champions Cup.
A strong first-half display by Stade Francais helped them beat Benetton Treviso 50-17 in the European Champions Cup this afternoon.
Jules Plisson kicked an early penalty for the French side, before nice hands found Waisea Nayacalevu who crossed in the corner after just four minutes.
Julien Arias and Paul Williams quickly added a further two tries, before a Sylvain Nicolas interception secured the bonus point for Stade on 24 minutes.

Fly-half Meyer Bosman then added a fifth try just before half time, as Sergio Parisse rumbled over to get in on the act just seven minutes after the break.
Djibril Camara scored another for the visitors, before Treviso finally got their first points of the game after Sam Christie crossed for a try.
Stade Francais fell complacent after this and allowed Treviso to cross again, this time Simone Ragusi grabbing an interception 10 minutes from time for his side's second try.
Marco Lazzaroni added a third but it was all too late for the Italians who left the match without a point.
They are now bottom of their pool with zero points, while Stade move up to top spot.
