It was the boot of Sanchez that ultimately proved decisive as he added two penalties in the space of six minutes towards the end of the first half to stretch Stade’s lead.
Zebre had put themselves within touching distance at half-time after a try from Charlie Walker, but a missed conversion from Carlo Canna meant they were always behind.
