from Paris! We got up this morning far too early as I had to do the
sports bulletins from our ISDN point. It meant leaving our hotel room
at 6am and getting on the Metro - very odd and quiet at that time

both quite tired after the mammoth and somewhat stressful journey

- food and then to bed. Not exactly the glamorous journalist's life
I was expecting!
we've already caught up with a group of Cherry and Whites fans -
they're recognisable because they are all wearing their red and
white shirts everywhere making them pretty easy to identify.
really confident about the game tomorrow. Not sure I share their
enthusiasm - Stade Francais have only lost once at home in their
last 18 games and there's 15 internationals in their squad. Going

the next couple of hours we're expecting over a thousand red and
white shirts to descend on Paris - it's been described as the Shed
going on tour so that'll be a lot of fun tonight.
look around Paris
spending the morning having a look around the city to make a guide
on what to do if you're a rugby fan and you come here. Then we're
going to meet the manager of Stade Francais to get all the latest
on the opponents - I'll try and get some insider gossip!
ready for the game
