  1. Under 19 friendly in France

    Well done that fella in the light green top far right- to make this happen! Keep'm coming.2nd game Carcassonne tomorow at Stade Benausse KO is 6.30pm ?
  2. Toulouse 2018 thread

    Great to see Chairman Sarrazain and CEO at the end of season awards evening across the Channel this past week. We have nothing like this over here. Little copy too in the local wrag La Depeche Du Midi since some time - however this morning the club pushed the boat out placing a huge poster for Saturdays clash with Dewsbury on the papers main front cover below a pic of Macron/Trump.

    Encouraging to have three southern regions involved? Something to build on.

    Guasch was bemoaning the fact that the lads stepping up from the Academy are not being stretched enough in the Elite with the clubs U23s (St Esteve) - only the Aude clubs and Avignon up to the task. I think we need to get the other half up and running. Albi seem to be strengthening and St Gaudens had their moments too last term - but need consistency. Duma's son a half back like his father has promise? Would like to think that Toulouse Broncos (TOXIII reserves) can come good sooner rather than later. Sarrazain has recognised that their Championship squad needs to be bigger and stronger - so maybe that will impact the Broncos set-up too.

    Be interesting to see where Frayssinous, Guisset and Cologni find themselves down the line.Elima and Fakir new coaches in Elite next season. Guigue at Avignon as well as Cologni's assistant with the national team. Its another positive of the Dragons in Super League. Janzac at back-to-back Champions Limoux seems to be making a name for himself. Fascinating to see how the emblematic Dave Ellis goes on his return to Villeneuve sur Lot goes next term. An icon before.
  6. French player Hakim Miloudi to the fore with a brace of tries for Donny?
  7. Should Lucas Albert go?

    Margelet, Sigmiseau and Navarette not Academy players? Yaha 37 Albert 19 Da Costa 29 Dezaria 5 Seguier 8 Khedimi 1 Romano 3 Belmas 4 I think these are present numbers of appearances SL/CC 2015-17
  8. Wigan-Workington in 1958 pulled fewer than yesterday 66,109 at a time of huge Wembley crowds for the game. Three years before 1955 Barrow-Workington Final was similar. Top end professional sport is in the entertainment business and events have to be managed creatively. Successful indoor arenas have got it off to a fine art with mobile seating configurations and use of drapes to facilitate all needs particularly for a range of musicals. An earlier poster mentioned how Tottenham managed a recent game at Wembley covering the vacant seated areas. Couldn’t the RFL have used something similar to yesterday. What about utilising all the SL clubs banners displayed before each league game and maybe extend that to all the clubs who have appeared in Finals there. I would have thought on Saturdays showing wouldn’t it better not to close off any area and let the crowd spread out over the whole bowl – would look better, no. Probably been raised before but a Cup competition for semi-professional clubs could be re-visited in any new structure including entrance from across the Channel too - providing an attractive curtain raiser As an aside interesting to see how the success of Irish rugby has been aided by creative new stadia designs like this one in Limerick – Ulster have done the same in Belfast I think with multi-coloured layout seating creating a better atmosphere.
  9. The French Federations Pole Espoirs based here in Carcassonne will be in attendance at New River I think Friday. Always seems some French party or other come over for the Challenge Cup. Its good they can fit-in to what the progressive Skolars are all about.
  10. PNG Hunters win minor premiership

    If they go on and take the Queensland title a final against the NSW winners on the under-card of NRL GF at the Olymipic Stadium a possibility? That would be something!
  11. Think Ader is in the French WC squad - Marguerite done well recently could yet offer something to France in the troublesome centre roles. Can they handle international football though?
  12. Pleased about that because I think he's got something about him. Only 20 years old and a touch of class.
  13. He's linked to Hull FC arriving there after a very successful season here at Carcassonne. He is from Perpignan and played at Junior level there with the Dragons.He does hop out a bit having also played at Beziers in Pro2 rugby union. He's got the talent but his question mark is the application I think.
  14. Expansion Clubs.

    In a recent interview with BBCs Dave Woods RFLs Roger Draper said their present focus was in Europe with, "Work to do in France....Catalans and Toulouse have been great.." I wonder what he was referring to there. I would like to see the Aude Cathare project re-visited along with Avignon. Challenge Cup entry a way of introducing these set-ups/clubs after all that was the way it started for both Catalans and Toulouse?
