Gordon, even if the second tier sides had finished top they can't play for the elite 1 title,
That's why it looks bad, limoux could lose every game of the season and still qualify for the play offs win four play off games and be champions!
I'm losing confidence in the president of the federation, cuts everywhere and everything more expensive! In all divisions in France we play 4 games then have 3 weeks off, supporters never know when the games are!
The lezignan carcassonne derby is not interesting anymore as they've already played each other 5 or 6 times and could meet in the playoffs!
Sorry for the negativity but I'm out there coaching kids and playing / helping out in open age and you just see no help from the federation, things are really going backwards over here! Luckily we've the catalans as rl is buzzing in Perpignan from under 7s to open age! Everywhere else it's struggling!
Kind of agree with this outside Catalan, the sport is in a bad shape especially in Aquitaine. I understand Villenueve will be relegated is this true?
