    Toulouse - 15 septembre - Stade Lamport

    The official TO Olympique pub, funny name... Here are some of the Lyrics (my translation) of an anthem dedicated to Toulouse, you can feel rugby and rumble is some of the words. Sometimes deep inside me I see reviving The green water of the Canal du Midi And the red brick of the Minimes O my Paîs, O Toulouse, O Toulouse I take the avenue back to school My schoolbag is full of punches Here, if you hit, you win Here, even the grannies love the brawl O my Paîs, O Toulouse A torrent of pebbles rolls in your accent Your violence is boiling up in your violets We call each other c*** as soon as we meet There is a storm in the air and yet The Saint-Sernin church illuminates the evening

    Salford sep 8

    If it's in Toronto, it will most likely be on October 6 at 12:30 to accomodate Sky. Leeds and Toronto play on Friday 28, all other teams on Sunday 30. So they will confirm the time on Monday morning I guess. That means I'll have to book a train ticket less than one week before the game and on top of that it's another long weekend, so it's going to cost me a lot...
  3. Must win for both teams. Weather looks splendid. Will Olympien fans travel en masse? Will 3B run out of cassoulet? A bilingual Oh Canada?

    Salford: I don't think the suspensions will affect them, they will beat Leeds next week and take the last 6 points available, will finish first alone at 14pts. With their behaviour on the field, they might struggle to get eTA clearance if they need to travel to Canada or USA next season. Leeds: every week the case for Toronto to beat them is growing solid, they could get just 2pts out of the last 3 games and finish at 8pts and MPG spot. Hull KR: will cruise to second place and 12pts. Toronto: they will cruise too, until the trip to Leeds. They need to improve in the wings, 3 weeks to get better. Justin please, make Sept. 28 a national holiday. London: huge win against Toulouse, they probably earned their spot to the MPG there. Toulouse: on se voit samedi.

    Like I said on the other topic, it's the international soccer break, so go to 3B or your local pub, ask them to open early if needed, this is the last saturday morning away game of the season.

    When they are busy with soccer, don't talk to them, don't touch them, stop breathing, don't move, unless they already ate, then you might have a chance.

    RL on Canadian TV

    Two good news this week: this is the first international soccer break of the season and no Canadian TV will show the Nations League, so that means more space for rugby right? Well RU mostly… Wigan – Wakefield Th. Live on SNWL and at 7PM on SN1 Hull FC – Castleford Fr. live on SNNOW and at midnight on SNWL Salford – Toronto live on Gametv, CBC sports and SNWL No coverage of the Catalans game apparently SN1 will show English RU, Saturday 5pm and Sunday 4pm.

    London Broncos

    It's probably over for Widnes and Halifax. Hull KR showed that it's possible to win in Leeds. TWP lost some differential points in the second half, but hey still 3rd, all is well. Salford still solid, tough task next Saturday! Interesting to see what Toulouse can do in London too.

    A lot of positive reaction, but hard to get them to travel to Toronto. Even the Frenchies... We need a cheap high speed train! Also we lost our pubs, both still closed after a fire, so very difficult to gather people to watch games on tv.

    Broadcasters

    (almost) Everyone I talk to about the Wolfpack here in Montreal has the same reaction: (translation) potential new fan: great, are the games on TV? me: yes, it's streamed on CBC, live and on demand and also on... potential new fan: great, because I don't have cable I know Sportsnet do streaming too, but, see other discussions, it's so complicated to figure out what kind of subscription you need to watch it, and yes SN NOW is not free, and it's quite expensive compared to basic sports package on cable. CBC streaming won't bring any money, I know, but it's great for the first years to promote the game and the team. I hope they can renew it on CBC next season. If not, they should focus on showing the weekend game on a basic sport channel (SN or TSN), weekday games on SNWL if this brings more money, then offer on demand games for a small fee on Wolfpack TV. They should also try to put a couple of late season games on City TV or a similar network.

    RL on Canadian TV

    DAZN showed Zebre-Kings yesterday afternoon, so Pro14 is back. It's just that one game for now, even though Premier is showing all other games in the UK and Pro14 website mentions that DAZN shows Dragons - Benetton today, supposedly now. Salford is confirmed on Sky, GameTV and CBC sports as well. However still no word on the Toulouse coverage or did I miss something? The only indication is that the kickoff is at 12.30, so should be on Sky and French TV as well, but I cannot find anything official.

    Local Press Coverage of TWP

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imgur You learn everyday. Now the other big question: what is a Gurka???
