A little rumour via Twitter has started that suggests Catalans will be taking a home game to Toulouse in June and Hull KR have been chosen as the side to face them. If this is true, the game will be played at the 19,000 Ernest Wallon Stadium.

I think the fixtures will be out in the next 2 weeks so if this is indeed correct, I am really looking forward to taking in an area of France I have only once passed through.

That would be very satisfactory. I always enjoy the trip over there. Toulouse would make a pleasant change.

I don't know the exact date but last night a discussion took place and the Catalans President said he wants Hull KR to be the side who takes part. That is very pleasing. That is all I know so far though.

Next season's fixtures will be released two days after the latest date for the Gillette Yearbook to go to press so that it'll be out in time for Christmas ;)

Is 19,000 big enough?

I assume they're not planning to attract any home fans.

Ha-bloody-ha! :)

The choice was between Rovers and Leeds I understand. As soon as it is concrete (although I am sure most will find out around the same time) I'll let you know.

EN JUIN À ERNEST-WALLON
Et comme les Dragons, c'est aussi - et surtout - des joueurs, Bernard Guasch faisait la présentation de Brent Webb : "cinq victoires en Super League avec Leeds, sacré meilleur arrière du monde voici quatre ou cinq ans, un style opposé à celui de Clint Greenshields, son inoubliable prédécesseur, dont la force consistait à casser la ligne de défense adverse, l'ami de Stacey Jones étant lui plutôt enclin à placer ses coéquipiers dans les intervalles".
Laurent Frayssinous, pour sa part, se chargeait de vanter les qualités de Zeb Taia : "Comme Setaimata Sa, il allie technique et puissance, et associé à Steve Menzies sur le côté droit du terrain, il peut faire du dégât dans les défenses adverses".
Une arme nouvelle pour le régiment sang et or, qui pour la première fois de son histoire plantera son étendard au stade Ernest-Wallon, mis à disposition par le Stade Toulousain en juin 2013, pour la venue de Hull KR à l'occasion du match que le club se fait chaque année un devoir de délocaliser.

Great place to be "on tour" as a Rervers fan. Can imagine it would be awesome seeing a shedload of Robins fans singing "Red Red Robin" on Place Du Capitol in front of the main town hall and everyone dining al fresco on the opposite side

pour la venue de Hull KR à l'occasion du match que le club se fait chaque année un devoir de délocaliser.

My French ain't too good but I think this bit means in June, Ernest Wallon claimed Hull KR's ground was a poor venue and on the occasion of the match, the Rovers club gave fat cheques to their team which was devoid of local lads.

For those of you out there still in doubt.....
