Wonder if some kind of funded draft system could help give more opportunity.

So for example:

Each super league 1 (and maybe even SL2 club) get a pick of a French young player to come to the under 19's his living expenses and a small wage are funded by either SL/French RL/international rugby (world cup profits?) for say 2 years. This would essentially almost double the amount of french players getting a shot at SL and training in a proffesional environment?


I stopped reading at SL2 as this does not and never will exsist, its like calling your car a rolls royce, it doesn't mean it is and never will be!

It's a shame that Barthau hasn't had more game time because i believe he's got the potential. His real problem is his defence (not dissimilar to a lot of half backs to be fair) which is probably why Pryce stays ahead of him, but i reckon he offers far more in attack than Pryce.

Barthau is already 24yo... he should have been "in" since 2-3years to fully explore his potential...

Catalans once made Tony Gigot at first grade when he was like 18-19yo... now nobody wants him, dunno why

Barthau has developed over the past few years though not to his full potential in my view and he won't whilst playing at a lower level

What annoys me about the overseas quota is teams see it as a necessity and not as a limit and therefore feel the need to sign players for the sake of it!

I would limit it to 3 and knowing there are ways around it this should keep the average down to 5 per team!

pryce was supposed to add big game experience, they just havnt really played many big games since signing him, also I dont think a rigid structure suits his game......

Because he's not very good, that's why...

 

He flatters to deceive
