The three local clubs here seem to be talking about joined up thinking. The Presidents of Carcassonne, Lezignan and Limoux have met recently to see how they can,as one, take the game forward. First of all they are putting up a new trophy for the best all-round club. This will involve all the teams under the respective ASC,FCL and Limoux banners from U14s, U16s, U21s & Elite 1. Over the whole seasons 24 games in total.
Although each town is a rallying call for the treize in its locality the Presidents feel that together they must unite to make the game and brand stronger and more prominent across the whole area with a population of 300,000 or so.
I think there is a link with this development to the apparent news that a team representing the area will play a game against the Catalan Dragons next January. Interestingly Toulouse Olympique will play SL opposition travelling to Warrington next January too. Linking this with what Jonty mentioned elswhere wouldn't a game with Cumbria be a decent match against an Aude selection. This area also has need of a more attractive calendar and this type of thing I'm sure would be well received.
