If Toulouse are in for 2015 then the RFL need to announce it before the start of next season as it means there will be 3 relegation places instead of 2 from SL if the 2x12 3x8 format is adopted. It will also mean 5 relegation places in the Championship instead of 4.

It might even be one more than that to go down, as I seem to remember that they've said that a Championship club that meets the criterions will be guaranteed a SL place. That could make for a VERY interesting time.

Taken from the RFL FAQ link in the other thread

"Are there plans to ‘fast track’ a second French club into Super League?
The RFL has been in dialogue with Toulouse Olympique for some time about the possibility of them joining Catalan Dragons in Super League and it is clear that Toulouse are very ambitious in that regard. However the RFL has made it clear that the introduction of a second French team into either Super League or the Championship would be reliant on them delivering a financially robust business plan backed by a broadcast contract that would offset the significant costs associated with cross-Channel travel. At the moment, no such broadcast arrangements are in place."

also if p and r is brought back how are Toulouse going to build into a stable sporting entity in the same way Catalan had the opportunity to be.


Just to be clear, in the same way Catalan had the opportunity to be.

The Catalans joined Super League when it was a 12 team league with promotion and relegation. Going back to that would not prevent offering Toulouse the same protections.
