A proposed merger between top French sides Racing 92 and Stade Francais has been called off.
The clubs, who are based in Paris and play in the Top 14 league, announced their intention to merge six days ago.
However, Racing 92 president Jacky Lorenzetti said in agreement with Stade president Thomas Savare they were giving this project up.
Stade Francais won the French Top 14 title in 2014‑15, while Racing took over as champions the following year though both are currently in the lower half of the division.
