RLE runs a piece today pre-empting a decision to let Toulouse in, due in about a month.
French President Zalduendo says there "Will be a French fully professional team playing in the English Competition this year" (OK bad quote as Catalans are already in).....
But RLE indicate he means Toulouse when he says "It isn't clear wether it will be CC or CC1" and Sarrazain the Chairman of Toulouse was reported as saying if given the option of CC1 his club will take it.
Now who else started in CC1 and worked their way up to SL, answers on a postcard please?
Anyway great news and maybe great for the CC1 clubs whose perennial struggles may be brightened up by a chance to have a trip to France and have a crack at the new SL hopefuls.
What a fixture Newcastle.v.Toulouse may be especially if they first meet in the Championship?
