Topics I've Started

Toulouse Olympique Return Confirmed

11 August 2015 - 12:12 PM

Seems confirmed at last.

Think the League 1 clubs met last week to decide a new format for 2016.

Toulouse may play their games at Blagnac out near the airport while their ground is renovated.

Toulouse will hope for promotion from year one.

They will put a reserve side in the French Elite from next month under the Broncos moniker.

Sign professional contracts at Catalans for 5 years and 3 years respectively. Albert a half back from Carcassonne at 17years 8 days the youngest ever player to debut for the Dragons in SL. 2 games this year whilst 18 year old wing Yaha from Avignon  played 9 games before a shoulder injury curtailed his season 2015.

French men at Wembley

02 August 2015 - 11:51 AM

If Larroyer and Boudebza make it later this month. Great for them and the wider French game. Wonder whether L'Equipe will show interest. Will it be a first ever for French players other than Catalans in 2007. Players playing on stages like this must be beneficial all round particularly for the Tricolores. Who's next up Fages or Springer. Allez le Treize!


Wigan-Catalans in London

28 July 2015 - 12:14 PM

Been reported here in the local papers. But where in the capital?

 

May be next year Dragons will reciprocate and invite Wigan to Paris.


Chevaliers Cathares Update

02 July 2015 - 10:09 AM

In an interview this week with the Midi-Olympique rugby paper one of the driving forces behind the Chevaliers Cathares the young President of Carcassonne Monier revealed that the project was still very much alive ("plus que jamais!"). He has spoken with his colleagues at both Limoux and Lezignan and they appear very much on board.. They hope the regional entity will play the Dragons again early in 2016 and an English side also is expected to be on their horizons too. Monier is to approach the RFL about the Cathares putting a side in the Challenge Cup as soon as possible.

 

A place the Cup would be an exciting development. Was present back in 2002 at St Gaudens when they played host to the first ever CC tie played in France against Halifax. Under Lewis the knockout competition laid the scene for the renovation of the game here with Villeneuve and Toulouse following behind and paving the way for eventual arrival of the Dragons in SL in 2006. Having the likes of Halifax returning and other top Championship sides visiting the Aude region would be a real boost.
