On dual-registrations from Catalans. Good news this. TO have suffered all season with problems at half back and have now lost Constant Villegas their only real stand off for the season with a knee injury. Barthau was on the bench Sunday for the Dragons against Wigan but didn't get a run out while Gigot played for the Federations U20s in their 44-12 loss to a Wigan side featuring both Karl Pryce and Palea'aesina. A few lads did well for the French there. Liked the little lively scrum half Robin from Villeneuve and two lads from Lezignan centre Cardace and prop Bousquet looked impressive.

Thanks for this info. As you say, it's great news that Gigot and Barthau will be dual-registered with TO. This could make the rest of the season's TO matches very interesting--and, I hope, open up the play-offs.

Good news. Stand off is the first position where Toulouse most need help. However I would also like to see them have a big bruising prop forward.

They should make the playoffs on current form. However they need a higher position than sixth if they are to have a fair chance of making the Grand Final.

As dual registration players they will not be able to take any part in the play offs as they will not have played 75% of the league fixtures which is the RFL criteria for a dual reg player to qualify.

Hmmm.
Just because you think everyone hates you doesn't mean they don't.
