With ASM, he lost two Top 14 finals (2015 and 2019) and three Champions Cup finals (2013, 2015 and 2017). The native Messin also lost a Challenge Cup final with Bourgoin (2009).

Morgan Parra holds a solid Top 14 record. In 2021, from February to October, the striker scored 48 kicks in a row against the posts! A series interrupted by a failure against the Pau Section, a meeting during which he had still signed a nice 7/8.
Morgan Parra honored his first selection with the XV of France on February 3, 2008 (France-Scotland, in the Six Nations Tournament). He has a total of 71 (the last during the 2019 Tournament). The scrum-half played in two World Cups (2011 and 2015) and won the Grand Slam at the 2010 Six Nations Tournament (which he finished as best director). In the blue jersey, the striker scored 370 points (including 3 tries), which makes him the 4e director of the history of the XV of France.
