FRENCH Top 14 side Stade Francais have reportedly set their sights on Worcester Warriors and England centre Ollie Lawrence as a potential future signing. 

Stade have been keen on the Worcester star-man since he scored against them in a European Challenge Cup fixture in 2019, accoring to The Rugby Paper.

They are losing French international Gael Fickou to Racing 92 at the end of the season and are now preparing a move for Lawrence for the season after next.

Lawrence has been away with England since January and started in yesterday's Six Nations defeat in Ireland. 

The Rugby Paper also reported that former Warrior Joe Taufete'e is potentially about to make a move back to England with Premiership rivals Harlequins, who are holding talks with the USA international hooker. 

'Big Joe' as he was named by the Warriors fans, struggled to really make his mark during his four years at Sixways and signed for Lyon last February but it now looks like he could be about to make a return to the league.
