well it ain't solved cos catalan still supply 99%. of the french team...players either pulled out,ruining the french tean or got injured ruining catalans season

mid season should be england v the combined celts (celtic tigers)

and a french 2nd string/kids can play homegrown/ESL italians

 

That's half the problem though Spud.

If France have to draw most of their players from the Catalan Dragons...............

Its a SL Club that has been up and down, often pretty average with a large proportion of often average Aussies.

Is it any wonder France can not compete at Test level when most of the players are dragged out of a mid table team reinforced by many average Aussies in key spots?

This IS the issue.

There's more non-Catalans players to pick from these days: Larroyer, Fages, Casty, Martins, Fakir, Bentleys, Gonzales-Triques, Herrold, Gigot, Ferret etc. We could do with more of the fringe players like Vaccari, Baile, Simon, Maria playing at other clubs.

Can I be cynical?? And say Nigel Wood is just throwing his weight around wanting a GB tour that the Aussies don't want!, all that's in it for them is to try and flog it to the Aus public and to get ISC to manufacter a GB shirt.
