  1. Apart from a couple of clubs, marketing seems to be something they find difficult to do online (and often at the grounds too !)
  2. Is the Fabre any relation to Felix, the ex municipal police chief who was one time hooker at XIII Catalan and had at least two sons playing ?One (Arnaud IIRC) had half season at Broncos/Quins under 20s (or that season's age group) but seemed to plateau and was at Pia.
  3. No problem with train but on this occasion would be dodgy as must be somewhere in UK midday Monday. 2150 flight from Toulouse means I'd be home by 0030 ish. Have used train before and it's a nice option.
  4. Done the drive in the past, both Brittany Ferries and Dover/Calais but as it'll just be me, easier to fly this time and get hire car at airport. Plus time constraint this time round. Need to be home for Monday midday. PS When we drove last time it was Bordeaux for lunch then Villeneuve for dinner
  5. It'd be either Toulouse or Marseille for the flight. Wine festival is on the Thursday so Friday to recover then to either Carcassonne or Perpignan for MW. That just leaves me to work out how long I have to get to Blagnac (flight from there to Gatwick at 2150 on a Sunday) or Marseille after last game. Any idea of rough KO times ? Presuming something like 2, 4 and 6pm on Sunday ? Did consider Barcelona or Girona airport but given current problems . . . .
  6. Any idea when they'll confirm location for Magic Weekend ? Going to Avignon wine festival so can take it in before returning but location depends on where I book flights to. Carcassonne means either there or Toulouse for flights and can get back on Sunday night. Perpignan makes it bit more difficult.
  7. So would I hence I just floated the idea. After all, say London Skolars or WWR had to play Barrow and Newcastle away then say Sheffield at home, would it be worth their while even if guaranteed £13000 ? Financially perhaps but not in other respects. Probably end up with 8 or 9 clubs entering.
  8. Just to float the idea, say it was played in 4 groups of 4 with top of group progressing to semi, followed by final. 12 teams that finish 2-4 in group get £13000, semi losers get £19000, final losers get £23000 and winnners £33000 ?
  9. Interesting reading, especially the bit about cleaning the stadium and seating. Club I go to hasn't had stadium cleaned since* . . . . . . . . * Though some seats do get washed when it rains. "● spectator areas, including seating, concourse areas and toilets, should be cleaned more frequently than normal, including between each competition session,"
  10. Potential being the operative word. Until RFL has some concrete proposals then we're all just speculating.
  11. Don't think any club will be putting their hands up until there are some firm details such as will it be mini league or straight knockout ? If mini league, only play other side once or home and away ? Or split into groups of say 4, play home and away then top of each group play semis and final ?
  12. A lot depends on which version of Tony Gigot they get ! On his day a game changer and capable of brilliant moves and passes. However, on other days he can be a hindrance and not worth his place on the pitch. Know one club where he is a fixture on their worst ever 13 for how he performed for them.
  13. They've signed a Tuilagi though it's Vavae and not Manu.
  14. Can join the list of Paul Sironen, Grant Doorey, Brock Mueller and Quentin Pongia of former ARL/NRL players. Probably others I've forgotten.
