  1. Never when I was involved with either club, in fact it cost volunteers money, if only in travel costs and time spent.
  2. Over 2 weeks and no response, either via direct email or using contact form on website ! Magnifique ? Non !
  3. IIRC it was around 1991-2. (Might not have been Rugby League Raw but was programme featuring lower league clubs, certainly pre SL but can't remember title) Plus managed to get mention of our fixtures quite a few times on 'Late Night Late' though how many were watching at 3am is another matter !
  4. Years ago when Rugby League Raw was shown on TVS (franchise covering south coast of England) it got highest rating for the time slot ever. It also sparked interest as I was club secretary for a club in London League and was taking calls from people interested in either coming to see a live game or trying the sport. Majority of people had never seen the game in such depth and were impressed by what they saw. Very few of them were displaced northerners.
  5. Perhaps he reads what's on here and decided not to use what was one of his favourite words last week !
  6. If he's on the commentating team for the 2 CC games today, how many tries will be described as 'simple' and how many times will they be 'simple,simple' ? He does also overuse a couple of other words but, for this, keeping it simple !
  7. Is there any other way Davies can describe a try other than 'simple' ? Does he know any other adjective apart from 'brilliant' ? Seems lockdown has seem him revert to his customary in depth analysis ! Now opening a bottle of wine and will take a sip every time he uses the word 'simple' or 'brilliant' and probably have the bottle emptied by final hooter !
  8. Says nothing bad about either club or sport from reading what he's said. He came back to TGG, he didn't make it as a regular starter so is returning to a sport probably better suited for him. Sure that at whatever club he goes to he'll be approached by other players about his experience in TGG and may well be a useful recruiting tool (albeit unwittingly). He's admitted his failure to reach the level he wanted so made his choice and hope he flourishes in the other code in his last few years there.
  9. Thought I'd ask FFR XIII so went onto their website and found 2 contacts for e mails (Paris and Carcassonne offices) so sent e mail to both via the link on the site. One was rejected by system ! Tried again using e mail account rather than link. Same again. Not very impressive.
  10. Presume they have to plan now for next season but they can't control events outside their hands ? If they hadn't released fixtures then they'd be hung out to dry for ineptness. I hope it goes ahead as planning to go to magic weekend but not booked yet.
  11. Have they decided on a location for this yet ? Last I heard it was between Perpignan and Toulouse.
  12. Elite 2 starts weekend 3/4 October. Elite one starts weekend 30 October/1 November. All fixtures here https://www.ffr13.fr/competitions/
  13. If it's any help, found Catalans, Toulouse and Avignon websites and response very good for ordering items. With others it depends on who is running things either on the website or at the club for that season. FFR XIII Federation website has got better and a number of clubs (Limoux, Villeneuve, Montpellier, Lyon, Palau and Catalans) use O'Neills for kit so might be worth you looking there. FYI, first game I went to in France (France v Australia 1990 in Avignon) I was told at the merchandise stall if I wanted a France replica they were available from the suppliers - Bulldog Sports in Leeds ! https://www.oneills.com/uk_en/shop-by-team/rugby/rugby-league.html
  14. Apart from a couple of clubs, marketing seems to be something they find difficult to do online (and often at the grounds too !)
