For Octobers EC campaign. Bobbie Goulding comes up with a few surprises including Melbourne's 20 yr half back Dane Chisholm who qualifies with a French mother. He hasn't played NRL yet but like Widdop is in the first grade squad and retained for 2011. No surprise that Jason Baitieri is included as he's joined Catalans this week. Some fitness issues there with Ferriol, Baile, Bosc and Mounis but theres some time before the opening game on 9 Oct against Ireland at Avignon. Good to see some lads who shone in the Roosters set-up included in this group in wing Quentin Nauroy and hooker Eloi Pellissier both from St Esteve and FCLs Julian Bousquet. Also good to see two young forwards from Toulouse included Kevin Larroyer and Yoan Tisseyre who have turned up in 2010. BG takes the squad to Biarritz for a week at the end of the month.
