Around a third of the 9,181 crowd was in black, green and gold, and the thousands of supporters provided a colourful and noisy presence in Colombes throughout the evening.
“Thanks to the supporters for making the trip over,” said Wood. “It’s a long way to come. I hope they had a good weekend, and I’m sorry that we couldn’t get the job done for them. It was a very competitive game and we fell on the wrong side of it.
“The effort was there and we’ll come back stronger next week.”
“The team gave all they’d got in a good physical game,” Mallinder added. “I hope we didn’t disappoint them too much.
“The supporters were really good today and made themselves heard getting behind the team. Hopefully they had a good rest of the weekend, and will get behind the side next week when we’ve got Ospreys at home.”
The result in Paris has made next Saturday’s game against the Ospreys even more important. With only a limited number of tickets remaining time is running out to secure your place at Franklin’s Gardens and get behind the Saints.
