French Elite 1 Update

French Elite 1 Update

R17

Albi 28-24 Lezignan

Carcassonne 19-18 Limoux

St Esteve 56-22 Avignon

St Gaudens 24-44 Palau

Toulouse Broncos 26-48 Villeneuve/Lot

 

Albi (5th) and Villeneuve (6th) on fire. Fortnight ago turned over the two front runners Canaris and Limoux and past weekend backed-up with more success. It’s making the play-offs possibily more competitive than ever. Limoux hammered by St Esteve in the Cup last Sunday at Stade Albert Domec were back there a week later but this time more determined. C XIII needed a last minute drop goal to secure the points to confirm their top ranking. Dragons ‘reserves’ walloped the present Championat holders Avignon and move up to 2nd place with just two rounds to go. The Aude clubs looked well set a few weeks back. Are the Tarn side outsiders coming up on the rails ?

Top six just about sorted now.

Albi edged a thriller at the Mazicou and continued their progression under Joris Canton after they dispensed with the services of Eric Anselme. They are a good side to watch in full flow but just need to improve their consistency and discipline , which probably goes for most teams at this level.  Good to see Villeneuve back in the top six after some pretty disasterous years. The kind of Director of Rugby, David Despin  put in place a youth policy a couple of season back which is positive and Julien Rinaldi has made a difference. Breaking into the top three or four is the next giant leap required but funds may prevent that.

Gordon, I know you like to hear superflous information, a bit of a "where are they now" moment actually.

Thierry Alibert, of SL reffing fame a few years back is still involved in the game. I bumped into him at the Lescure second team recently game where he was in charge of the team. He ended his association with the FFR13 as head of the French referees when Marc Palanques took over in 2017. He has a good job working for Orange and lives very happily with his family close to Albi.
