Seen this kid in french cup final, seems an amazing prospect. Power speed has it all, don't want to put mocker on him but I could see in nrl. The lock for St steve goes good too.
but springer believe the hype get this kid signed up before ruggers get near him.

Who's the lock for St Esteve, Margalet?

Massive game by Springer and decent debut for Yaha. Bousquet starting to look like a prop. Garcia still a huge asset to the team. Pelissier just the man, we need to play more Eloi and less Henderson.

At one time, Burke got a hit by Springer and Bousquet with Garcia coming in third. That might hurt a lot.

However, Carney, pure class.

Cardace and Pala need to sort out their defense, they put the wingers in a hard time everytime. Unimpressed by Tilse, busy in defense but very very average in attack, got little meters. Walker looked the best prop in KR.

Highlights :

Interesting thing about the game was the potential French pack, if you add the Cats players with the two who featured for Hull KR. They've potentially got a solid pack.

What's also great is France have got two really good hookers with complementing styles. Pellisier is physical and athletic, whilst Boudebza has quick, clean distribution from the ruck. Add to that Springer, Garcia, Bousquet that's the spine of a very good pack. The next guy who I'd like to see get more game time is Margalet, he looks like being the type of back rower France need.

It's not certain that Albi will go up, is it?

Nice article in la depeche today which says the club hopes to win the Elite 2 title and go up and that Zalduendo, the city government and the other local clubs (Lescure & Realmont) are all in favour, which sounds positive. Also mention of France v Ireland in the Autumn being held at Albi. But no definite "we will be in Elite 1 next season" just yet?


Lyon said they could afford to go up if their main sponsor doubled the money, which seems to be on the cards. Not clear where they would recruit suitable players from though.

The objective league xiii seems to have morphed into a plan to set up a summer league running April to October, but still no more obvious where the tv deal, sponsors, players, ground, officials, spectators etc. are going to come from.

Both Albi and Lyon have big potential.
