Paris - Australia winger Digby Ioane will make his much-anticipated Stade Francais debut against Perpignan on Sunday, his club said Saturday.

The Wallaby, who has not played since injuring his shoulder during the British and Irish Lions tour of Australia in June, has been named in the starting line-up for the match at the Jean-Bouin stadium.

"Its been 5 months since I haven't played. Very happy to play my first game for @SFParisRugby. #Blessed," said the 28-year-old on his Twitter account.

He joined the Parisians in November, at the end of the southern hemisphere Rugby Championship and a previous debut on December 20 against Grenoble had to be aborted due to persistent pain in his shoulder.
