Thats because the French League is low profile. SL would be much bigger. There are a lot of expats in Toulouse. Many are not from RL backgrounds but some are I'm sure.
So it's about as relevant as the French citizens, many of whom will not be from RL backgrounds but some are.
One of the things that annoys me the most when people talk about expansion is 'expats in the area'. Not only is it totally stupid for the reasons mentioned, it's also completely counter-productive as an expansion club should be looking to bring new people into RL, not provide an outlet for displaced people who might already like the game. That sort of thinking potentially cost years of development for London Broncos.
