Bonjour 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 of the morning.

Mammoth journey

We're both quite tired after the mammoth and somewhat stressful journey so last night it was a caraf of red wine - well we are in France - food and then to bed. Not exactly the glamorous journalist's life I was expecting!

Cookie in Paris

Nevermind, 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.

They're 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 to be a toughie I think...

Over 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.

A look around Paris

We're 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!
