i mean they don't want to play england..

Why is that? I thought it was England did not want to play France as they were easy beats and they were sick of it :)

no another myth...it was the french that pulled out, they told the RFL they did'nt see the point of it cos they could never put out a full strength team and it was also damaging catalans season......and what for? to get hammered by england again no thanks...so they pulled out...

of course the french can get away with fielding a less than full strength team against the welsh though..

That does not say much about the ambition of the French authorities to ever be competitive if that is right.

they said it suits them better to play england at the end of the season....mid season serves no benefit to them at all....and they have a point

What will they do in four Nations years where they do not qualify or are not eligible?

Just not play a top side at all then?

no...they'll play england in a warm up game like they did in 2011

They will if the International calender allows them in that given year, the dates change every season.
