Toulouse go for their first ever victory Sunday up against Carcassonne the games most successful with 13 cup wins the last just two years ago; the Canaris will play their 27th final. Toulouse to play first Final since 1976 - their record to date:
1939 XIII Catalan 7-3
1962 Roanne 16-10 (8,395)
1963 Carcassonne 5-0 (5,100)
1964 Villeneuve 10-2 (5,166)
1968 Carcassonne 9-2 (6,400)
1976 XIII Catalan 23-8
Be interesting Sunday to see if they get bigger crowd than those listed here. Toulouse club putting on coaches at just €5 a throw; they've been reported getting better crowds this year with a successful team at last. Not sure if the down turn at Stade Toulousain will generate more support for the treize in the Ville rose. Watch with interest too how La Depeche du Midi daily covers it. ASC should get the townsfolk out for this one. Adsel posters a plenty en ville. Looking forward to it.
