French Update

Today, 11:13 AM

Below the end of season championship play offs schedule kicking off Easter weekend. As expected no 2nd tier sides made the cut. Champions Toulouse though have to wait 5 weeks without a game before the semi finals as they missed out on qualification for the Lord Derby Cup Final. This game to be played in Carcassonne Saturday week between the Dragons reserve side St Esteve and FC Lezignan.


Elsewhere hear that South Africa appear to have pulled out of their game against France A at Albi. Instead the Tricolour hopefuls will play Serbia in Perpignan on the 22nd May.

Eurostar staff peep at Catalans & London Broncos programmes ahead of weekends clashes in Perpignan & the capital. Every little helps. Blake Solly anticipating too the Dragons playing a game in Paris in 2016.


France A

12 March 2015 - 12:37 PM

They've picked the following squad to prepare for the game against South Africa at Albi in May. All selected from the Elite 1 comp. Renaud Guigue the Avignon coach in charge. Like the idea. A young group. The team to play in the Autumn to come from full time professionals either at the Dragons or playing across the Channel

Catalans re-new TV contract with Bein Sport

12 January 2015 - 01:42 PM

For three years up until 2017. No mention of money so far. Rather anticipated this as the RFL had already indicated that Sky would cover all the Dragons home games in 2015 as they did last year. How this leaves Toulouse's and their Championship aspirations for 2016 who knows.
