Leaders of Elite1 and Elite 2 Limoux and Catalans of Baho respectively was viewed with interest. The Catalans threatened an up-set level at 14-14 just after the break with back-to-back tries rocked the undefeated leaders.Championship title holders Avignon struggling started strongly against FCL in the only Elite 1 clash but FCL responded late on. Top honours this weekend though to Trentels who  turned over Lescure from Elite 2.

Promoted Toulon took 80 points against Baho other week but today took 3rd place Carpentras to extra-time.

Gallant Val de Dagne effort against Elite 2 heavy weights Villegailhenc with the Anderson brothers on board. Aquitaine derby saw a clash USV against minnow neighbours Pujols nothing into it up to the oranges then fell away. Tonneins who played Elite1 several decades back with Gael Tallac but now 3rd tier at least kept Albi to three converted scores before falling away, The Corbieres side Ferrals had only to cherish the brace of tries after the break against a youthful Dragons'reserves' who ran away with it with five  tries from flying wing Flovie.

Radio Marseillette's coverage excelling itself had people commentating from Baho, Val de Dagne and Lezignan as well as up-dates from Aspet-Toulouse with other scores relayed from their studio.Great stuff.

Well done Trentels, Lescure have been playing well lately so a big scalp for them. RL hotbed over that way with Villeneuve just down the road. Last season Trentels and Pujols played a league game at the nearby Myre Mori ground as a curtain raiser to a Villeneuve game.

Great to see Apt and Cahors with rugby a XIII teams.  I have visited both these places on my travels in recent years and love them! But I had no idea rugby league was played there! Saw no evidence of rugby  a XIII  when I was there, although in Cahors I did speak to a man in my bad French who demonstrated the play the ball for me in the street!

Jim - think that Apt have just re-formed. Reached this round after accounting for Salon (E2) earlier. Dragons Wembley try scorer Benjamin Garcia hails from there too.
