Well when some thought we may have a comp of six or seven the Federation appear to have announced a joined up elite of 20 clubs! It includes a first phase running from Sept-January with 3 pools:
Pool elite 1 Avignon-Carassonne-Lezignan-Limoux-St Esteve-Toulouse-Villeneuve-Palau
Pool elite 2 west Albi-St Gaudens-Tonneins-Toulouse Broncos-Villefrance-Realmont
Pool elite 3 east Lescure-Baho-Carpentras-Cavaillon-Lyon-Montpellier
Second phase five pools of 4
Play Offs with 8 teams to qualify.
They're trying at least and have put it out there far earlier than previously. Fixtures I believe to be announced today.

"Just as we had been Cathars, we were treizistes, men apart."

"It involves matters much greater than drafting the new rules...the original and existing games have their own powerful appeal to their players and public and have the sentiments which history inspires"
