Perpignan book final ticket

Perpignan will face Clermont in next weekend’sĀ French Top 14 final after they beat Stade Francais 25-21 in the second semi-final.

After finishing the regular season at the top of the log, the Catalans held their nerve to book their place in the showpiece at Stade de France next Saturday.

The table-toppers were deserving winners, leading from start to finish and outscoring their opponents by three tries to two.

Fullback Jerome Porical was the star performer for the men in red and yellow with a personal tally of 18 points including a try.
