  1. I find it hard to understand how such a competition could work. Without speaking of money, clubs like the French clubs have worked hard for years to maintain a competition of a more than adequate level with the support of institutions, rugby schools etc. (Besides, the Spanish team only exists through the presence of French players) How one could create a championship ex nihilo without any base. last element, the current crisis shows that the time is more for industrial relocation (and sports too) than to continue in this endless globalization.
  2. Since 2017, I had put forward this idea of basing a French team in Nouméa and that the distance with Australia was less than that with Papua or Auckland. I had even sent a letter to this effect to the president of the federation and created topics on the forums to launch the idea. The new Caledonia is economically isolated and this team could be a link with the Australian continent nearby. Everyone could be a winner: rugby league, Australia, Caledonia, France, etc.
  3. I hope you will not make the same mistake again as at the beginning of the epidemic by continuing to play in front of crowds ... It is certain that this stupidity has cost the life of some of your supporters ... Dead for going to see a rugby match ....
  4. You have the answer now You have too late. Now people may die for going to a game https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8146565/Scientists-Iceland-claim-FORTY-mutations-coronavirus.html?ito=social-facebook&fbclid=IwAR3UiiY_0J06B0vtiFTscjk3ej2Q9GdfaFPNjUdwY3aKgje7cO7F_OoJg3E
  5. This is theory ... It means that you are going to sacrifice thousands of people while maybe by the second wave there will be a vaccine. You could at least have played these games without a crowd ... but as always the economy is privileged compared to humans.
  6. bravo this weekend the RFL contaminated hundreds of people!
  7. You are not stronger than the others: you must stop all collective competitions and training as quickly as possible
  8. You are not stronger than the others: you must stop all collective competitions and training as quickly as possible
  9. Many people thought like you in France or in Italy "It is a media manipulation, collective hysteria etc" except that this lightness to cause contaminations and deaths. The faster you react and adopt the right behaviors, the more you will preserve your family and especially your elderly. Be careful the elephants are coming
  10. I have the impression that you completely underestimated this pandemic. The virus is everywhere in France and it is only a question of days or hours for you too, players, staff etc will also be affected and all the competitions will be stopped. We are part of the same community and we must be united; Leeds' attitude towards the Dragons is totally stupid. Let's be smart because we're going to need it!
  11. There are no real projects in France other than smoke screens, the federation does nothing.
  12. Rugby à XIII survives in small towns because municipalities politically and economically support these clubs. As soon as the support of elected officials disappears clubs die (Pia for example). With the municipal elections coming soon it may be for tomorrow .... In larger cities, there is more competition between different sports and we do not have a lobby and network to have powerful leaders. To start, it would take people like Bernard Guasch or Bernard Sarrazin in big cities devoid of professional sports clubs. Our leaders (even federal) are probably passionate but insignificant.
  13. District maybe pub. the spain team is largely made up of semi professional french players, some of whom play in the french second division. How do you want a team composed of Spanish players even reinforced by 3 English players to compete with a Championship club? it makes no sense !
  14. I do not understand how we can give credit to such a team and at the same time not establish links with the French teams. Salford who loaned 3 players to this team and replied to a French club that they could not help them develop their young players.
  15. I find this opposition to be dangerous. these players are just an amateur level ....
  16. even PNG can benefit. Without the contribution of Australian players, they probably would not have beaten Great Britain recently
  17. The situation in France is not glorious but receiving lessons from someone who has been in the system for decades is quite ironic, We must not forget that Tas baitieri was coach of the France team (and took also more than 50 points against Great Britain), he knows very well all the people who have had responsibilities of rugby XIII in France in the last 30 years, He himself has contributed and put in place the rules of eligibility at international level which are totally a fig leaf. One of the worst decisions you could make for France and other historic rugby league nations like Papua New Guinea and all that to make money. Going back to the topic, imagine that one day an English leave the club in the NRL championship and become more powerful and richer than the RFL. A club that would be more important than the national team ! . As is the case in France. I think that you English have a role to play in our development and rather than welcoming our clubs to your championship. It would be very interesting if you could play the role of mediator between the dragons and our federation.
  18. Of course we lack communication. let us not forget that it is he himself who has implemented the new eligibility rules which condemns the France team to be beaten by heritage teams filled with Australian players ....
  19. clubs have an appointment with the French federation to speak about a European cup of the clubs
