Not traveling but, looking at where there might be some TV/radio coverage, am I correct in thinking that the 8pm (BST) KO is 9pm local time in Paris?

Would make a late finish (Last Orders would be being called in the UK not so long ago) - is this usual in France, or does it suggest a shuffle to suit a broadcast schedule?

9pm is pretty standard for french rugby evening matches - their autumn internationals at the Stade de France kick off at 9.05pm local time as do 6 Nations games very often. The national stadium is well out of the centre of Paris making the post-match journey a real pain in the butt and access to a bevvy very hit-or-miss unless you've planned very well in advance!

Fortunately for any Worcester fans who do make the trip Stade Francais in spite of the name do not play at Stade de France - they play at Stade Jean Bouin which is a little nearer the centre although still about a 50 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower where the bars are more plentiful and likely to stay open later.
