The French foot print continutes to stretch out. I make it now half a dozen playing full time across the Channel in 2015. Fages, Simon, Baile, Barthau, Larroyer and now Boudezba. Jouffret and Ferret played Academy last year too. With Catalans Academy getting ready to go next term the contacts are multiplying all the time. Vive le Treize!

ah..rather like the sound of this new "Abyss League" got a a ring about it too. SL just old northern union with the French in to give novelty whereas the Championship can at least show Cumbrian and London presence if nothing else. The "AL" on the other hand is the bees knees isn't it. Cumbria, Newcastle, Coventry, Lancs, Yorks, Oxford London, Hertfordshire, Gloucestershire, North and South Wales and may be soon Toronto. Whats not to like. The only question is isn't this structure a bit upside down.

In Topic: Telegraph article on Billy Boston

My abiding memory of Boston was at Naughton Park circa 1959. Some possible racist comment had been shouted at him. Billy vaulted the perimeter wall. It was just like the parting of the sea in biblical times as the wing stormed up the terrace as the Welshman seeked to confront the miscreant.

In Topic: Aude Pays Cathare Rugby XIII

07 October 2014 - 02:09 PM

Carcassonne have taken a big stride towards the inaugral Aude Cathare Trophy after a thumping victory at Lezignan Sunday afternoon 38-12. Pre-match both sides undefeated and with hosts Jamal Fakir debuting in the front row; so if the Canaris victory was not completely unexpected the margin was. A decent turn out too reported as 3200. The ASC also won at U21s level 40-24 & U14s by 16-6 with FCL claiming the one win at U16s 24-20. Not to be complacent though as this time last year it was Limoux on the front foot before collapsing in a heap by the springtime. Elsewhere one of ASC's new young recruits from Auckland scrum half Mason Lino (left on the pic) was celebrating the Warriors Holden Cup 36-34 triumph over the Brisbane Broncos in Sydney on Sunday. The joint skipper a bit busted after the clash arrives in town in two weeks time

Paul Wood for France?


That's Aaron Wood Toulouse's Australian forward who must qualify on residential grounds. Played here for years at Limoux and Avignon before. Tony Maurel wing/full back also in back up squad
