  1. France were awarded a rather dodgy penalty try by the French referee (who also gave the penalties to France 15-6 according to the RLProject) right near the end of the match to make it 16-16, so it was a bit like the old days in that regards! LOL
  2. I was living in NZ in 1995 and went to the 2nd Test in Palmerston North (the 16-16 draw); crowd was approx. 10,000 from memory. From memory France played 2 midweek games as well as the 2 tests, and – again from memory – the tour (very well promoted by Dean Lonergan's crew) made a profit. Both tests were on free-to-air TV on a Friday night.
  3. yes but it is telling me that TOULOUSE won 50-10 !!??
  4. Funny, my FlashScore app is giving the score as Toulouse 50, Carcassonne 10 !!
  5. Yes I actually heard it on ABC radio here in Sydney this morning … but I'll believe it when I see it !!
  6. And presuming the 2022 event ever actually goes ahead (a big presumption, I know), and that the IRL is not killed off by the likes of the NRL, the 2025 RLWC – if awarded to France – may stage the final in Paris and hold matches all over the country according to this article: https://www.nrl.com/news/2021/10/12/robinson-bennett-backing-french-revival-and-2025-world-cup-bid/?utm_source=NRLEmail_Top5&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=2021Offseason&utm_content=Article_1277598 Lacoste believes that hosting the 2025 World Cup will accelerate the growth of the game in France and he is aiming to increase the number of teams that would contest the men's, women's, wheelchair and youth tournaments. The final would be staged in Paris, but World Cup matches would be spread around France to enable visiting fans to enjoy a taste of other regions. "We want a World Cup for everybody," Lacoste said. "We will be very proud to welcome people from Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific nations, and we know that our country is able to receive these tourists because France is the most touristed country in the world.

  9. Absolutely stoked Toulouse won … now if only the moronic RFL didn't have their idiotic plans to change the SL structure AGAIN Catalans and Toulouse should be permanently except from relegation … it's the only way to grow RL in France and make it the power it once was. Anyone know what the crowd was for today's game?
  10. Fantastic win, I am so happy …! For me it has (almost) made up for the 2021 RLWC shafting by PVL etc ! LOL Allez Catalans next week !
  11. Audois, are you saying that if Toulouse win, they will host the grand final the following week in Toulouse at Ernest Wallon Stadium ??? Merci !
  12. So both games (Catalans and Toulouse S-Fs) will be on TV this weekend, yes? And are the kick-off times confirmed? Would love to watch both games online from Oz if I can … Thanks all !
  13. Hi all … FYI: This has some interesting (up to date?) comments from Jon Dutton re the RLWC in 2022: https://www.voice-online.co.uk/sport/rlwc2021/2021/09/28/what-next-for-the-rugby-league-world-cup-as-jamaica-have-their-global-debut-delayed/
