Catalans will integrate fully the Academy U19s next season. Is this competition being re-vamped for 2016?


Their present set up is running down with just three trips to Salford,Widnes & Leeds I think to complete. They've done OK I reckon even if only one win acheived on their travels; only Wigan and Leeds did their bit in travelling to Perpignan.


Two lads from the Pole Espoirs at Carcassonne heading to Brutus too in 2016. One a product of the Villefranche club up in the Aveyron as they trawl far and wide.

Barrow programme was RL fans at their finest.  Next article, moan about possibly having to go to France next season.


The boss at Gloucestershire AG Lionel Hurst in contrast was upbeat about his side may be travelling to Toulouse in 2016. Saw it as a postive.


Bottom line is the French side possibily seen as pinching a place in the Championship more like.

Oh, and the Polish choir at half time made a nice change from the normal racket that we have to put up with at the Racecourse.

Avignon reported to have re-signed experienced prop Joris Cagnac. He was excellent for them a while back. It will be interesting to see how many they get back from the summer jaunts elsewhere. Tony Gigot has certainly put himself back in the frame in Perpignan. Still good that Avignon will host the Scotland game in November to keep the interest up in that part of the world.


If Toulouse Broncos comes a reality in Elite 1 one presumes another likely all French line-up to add to SOA, St Esteve and Palau and Villeneuve if they dont replace Australians Curran and Bromley could be the 5th club to follow this path. Interesting times.

A decade ago just in the Aude alone about 25 overseas lads. I think those days are well over. Welshman Gareth Dean on the come back helping out at Carcassonne I hear with Vinnie Anderson player/assistant coach may be helping out the youngsters.
