Paris - Australian scrumhalf Will Genia will get his first start for Stade Francais in Saturday's Top 14 clash against Bordeaux-Begles as the defending French champions look to move into the top half of the table.

Genia, 27, won his 66th and most recent cap playing for the Wallabies in their 34-17 loss to the All Blacks in the World Cup final in October.

Stade are 10th in the 14-team table and started the weekend 12 points behind leaders Clermont and seven off the drop zone.
