    Northampton Saints, congratulations - you're through to the Champions Cup play-offs and will face Connacht in a semi-final later this month.

    Stade Francais will celebrate late into the Edinburgh night. They were deserved winners at Murrayfield this evening.

  3. Reaction - 'We couldn't get upfield'

    FT: Gloucester 17-25 Stade Francais

    Scotland captain Greig Laidlaw - after his finale appearance for Gloucester - tells Sky Sports:

    "I'm disappointed. We all are. We came up here with high hopes but ultimately the game got away from us.

    "But we give credit to Stade. We just couldn't get any territory, couldn't get up the field.

    "[This medal] will go in the back of the garage somewhere. It's not the one you want, is it?"

  4. Reaction - 'It was a good cup run'

    FT: Gloucester 17-25 Stade Francais

    Wales and Gloucester hooker Richard Hibbard tells Sky Sports:

    "Stade today were fantastic. We're disappointed with some areas of our game, but we just weren't getting the rub of the green.

    "We tried our best (at the scrum). We lost John [Afoa] early on.

    "We'll dust ourselves off but it's been a good cup run."

  5. 'Gloucester didn't turn up'

    Simon Devereux

    Ex-Gloucester forward on BBC Radio Gloucestershire

    Stade Francais celebrate
    Quote Message: It's just disappointing because Gloucester are a better side than that and, for whatever reason, they just didn't turn up.

    FT: Gloucester 17-25 Stade Francais

    Man of the Match Sergio Parisse, with a wide smile on his face, now leads Stade Francais up to collect their medals and, in a moment, the trophy.

  8. Post update

    FT: Gloucester 17-25 Stade Francais

    Gloucester's players trudge up the steps at Murrayfield to collect their runners-up medals.

    They performed valiantly in La Rochelle in the semi-final to get to tonight's game.

    They wanted Champions Cup rugby next term, via the play-offs over the next few weeks, but their season ends here now.

  9. 'It was flawed from Gloucester'

    FT: Gloucester 17-25 Stade Francais

    Paul Grayson

    Former England fly-half on BBC Radio 5 live

    Quote Message: It was flawed from Gloucester in that second half. Layer on top of layer of unforced errors handed victory to a strong Stade Francais team.
  10. Reaction - Proud Parisse

    FT: Gloucester 17-25 Stade Francais

    Italy and Stade Francais captain Sergio Parisse tells Sky Sports:

    "We have come through a very difficult season in Paris but this team have come through it. I'm very proud of the team.

    "We tried to follow our philosphy. It wasn't easy because Gloucester put us under pressure.

    "Maybe we didn't play our best game, but congratulations to the boys.

    "I don't want to talk now about problems off the pitch. I'm really proud and really happy."

  11. Stade Francais win the Challenge Cup

    FT: Gloucester 17-25 Stade Francais

    Stade Francais also maintain their 100 per cent record in games against Gloucester.

    That's four win from four for the French side against the Cherry and Whites now.

    Reaction to tonight's game is coming up next.

  12. Stade Francais win the Challenge Cup

    FT: Gloucester 17-25 Stade Francais

    At last, after four previous losses in European finals, Stade Francais are Challenge Cup winners for the first time.

    Gloucester were going for a third victory in the competition, and their second in just three season, but it wasn't to be.

  13. Stade Francais win the Challenge Cup

    FT: Gloucester 17-25 Stade Francais

    Stade Francais celebrate

    It's a deserved win for Stade Francais. They were the better side in the second half; stronger, smarter and dominant.

    Gloucester battled on and on, but the French Top 14 side were almost untouchable between minutes 45 and 75.

  14. Full-time

    Gloucester 17-25 Stade Francais

    Gloucester v Stade Francais

    It's all over! The French side celebrate.

  15. Post update

    Gloucester 17-25 Stade Francais

    But Gloucester still need more than a converted try. They won't have time.

  16. Try: Gloucester 17-25 Stade Francais

    Ross Moriarty

    There's 90 seconds left, but two Lions men combine to give Gloucester a glimmer of hope.

    Greig Laidlaw is there with the pass and Ross Moriarty carries the ball over the line.

    Laidlaw's kick is good too.

  17. Post update

    Gloucester 10-25 Stade Francais

    A third Challenge Cup triumph for Gloucester is now a near-impossibility.

    But Stade Francais are moments away from ending their European final hoodoo, after four losses from four in European finals before tonight.

  18. Post update

    Gloucester 10-25 Stade Francais

    Greig Laidlaw, of all people, misplaces a pass completely out of play.

    Gloucester's time is running out. And Laidlaw's time at the club is running out too. This is now surely his last game for the club, before his summer move to Clermont.

  19. Post update

    Gloucester 10-25 Stade Francais

    Paul Grayson

    Former England fly-half on BBC Radio 5 live

    Quote Message: Stade Francais know that Gloucester have been committing rugby suicide in this second half and they've invited them to do it time and time again. They've had to do very little to gain their field position since half-time.
  20. Penalty (Steyn)

    Gloucester 10-25 Stade Francais

    From 45m out, Morne Steyn's kick is good. That must be that, surely?

    Stade Francais are closing in on their first European trophy.
