Its been reported now that France will host matches here on:

09 Octobre 2010 15h30 : France – Irlande (in Avignon, au parc municpal des sports)
16 Octobre 2010 15h30 : France – Ecosse ( in Toulouse, stade Ernest Wallon)
23 Octobre 2010 15h30 : France – Pays de Galles ( in Albi, stadium municipal)

That does fit in with the Wales RL recent press release of their game to be played at Albi.
Good choices for me anyway with games now in the Tarn, Provence and Toulouse. Touching the right bases.

Pays de Galles = Cymru biggrin.gif

I highlighted your point to my mate the WRL Press Officer ,so good to have it confirmed from the other side.

Interesting choice of stadiums, must say thought having the Scotland game at Toulouse RU ground with 18,000 was possibly ambitious thought it would be at Des Minimes?

Im hoping to be in Albi for what should be the 'decider' .

Yeah I was hoping that the Wales game would be at Toulouse's Stade Ernest Wallon. They got nearly 13000 last November there for NZ but Scotland not the same pull.

A bit presumptuous to think this will be the final (Wales) although I'm hoping it will be. From Carcassonne should get to all three on the train hopefully.

All three matches to be televised live by TNT channel Direct 8 who earlier covered the Test at Leigh against England taking the Sky feed. Who knows they may reciprocate for the matches played over here.

Literally: land of Galles!

or, according to Google translate, land of galls (a gall being an abnormal outgrowth, often caused by various parasites).

Just about. Galles - Wales - old Saxon words for foreigners.
Cymru originally meant compatriots and it's where the county name of Cumbria originates from.

Saes = Saxons for the record.


About time I updated this.

Also Gareth Thomas used to play for Toulouse RU and that could have been used as a big marketing excercise in Toulouse. He was on't front of Equipe magasine earlier this year before the switch to RL

Another massive feck up from RL authorities
