Really looking forward to this season audois. A mobile pack with some cutting edge and pace behind it. Only real worry is the quality of the second tier of front rowers. Very happy with Anderson and Casty starting. Time for Elima and Lima to step up to the mark, and for big Bousquet to fulfil some of his promise.
And the flocons of snow are bleeding well six foot drifts up here!
I can heartily recommend Nimes. Amphitheatre, Temples, fountains, ginnels with interesting bars, cafes and shops. Pont du Gard nearby as is the sea, as is Montpellier. Double up with a Catalan Dragons game.
Seeing as I am a hipster (apparently so - I have a beard, short haircut, tattoos, a Mac, and wear my jeans slung low), I'm always seen in winter sporting a hat with an enormous bobble. The so called Hoxton bonnet.
Unfeasibly popular among the youth when I was in Paris last winter. Glad to see another UK export doing so well.
"Escare is probably more homophobic than Hardake. It's just that because he speaks le froggy it hasn't been picked up and he hasn't been the target of a witch hunt like dear sweet Luke and so his inferior talent is being artificially raised I this thread" said Gary H.
I hope that Simon benefits from the move in a similar way to the way that Larroyer has improved at Hull KR.
He's a big, very strong lad with plenty of heart. Just goes to ground too quickly for me, and rarely gets his nose through the line. The first things you can't coach, the second you potentially can. And as for Vaccari, good effort Fred! Didn't ever really recover from his bad injury a couple of years ago, but never let the side down and was very entertaining for his wholehearted approach.
