They are all well run clubs with great fan support bases and decent grounds in place or on the way.
The coach, if he is good, can count on being paid well and on time.
The other clubs need to follow their example.
Catalans could have been the sixth if the Chairman had been prepared to keep his silly nose out of the day to day management of the club and appointed a competent and professional CEO to take care of the finances.
Huddersfield could have been there too but for the feebleness of the fan base, which is small and refuses to travel for some reason (especially odd since they have a great train service right there).
