    I'm not going to defend Montpellier's forfeits (which are both very concerning, especially so early in the season) and I can't talk to what promises they may had made to the FFRXIII and may have broken, however I do want to say that from a Pacifique Treize perspective they have met every promise they made from a financial / contra and pathways perspective.

    Encouraging to hear, I think the owner burned his bridges with a lot of the rugby league playing community when most of the players never got paid or given what they where promised, so no one will risk taking a playing licence at lattes Montpellier. 

    It could be a great opportunity for RL playing students from bigger clubs to get free accommodation and a bit of spending money whilst playing RL and studying, but it's too big of a risk with this club, 

    I loved my time at Montpellier, some of the best times of my life and still have lots  of good friends from there, but I got everything I was promised from the other Montpellier club ( although not everyone did!) It's definitely a great place to live for a few years as a young lad! 


  2. They're looking to set up a partnership with the AS corbières team, a team of Lézignan gypsies, one or two could play elite 2 but the rest are just there to play with their family and friends. 

    Was it a travel  visa problem or a visa bank card that didn't have any money for them? Poor lads!

    What's the reach of the channel? What regions do they broadcast in?

    Think of made in Leeds channel on UK TV, you have to look and really want to find the channel to find it, it's hidden amongst the other hundreds of channels only people who are interested in the certain subject watch, it covers the Occitanie region on TV, it's also on the internet.

    He is playing with a lot of experienced pro’s.  Peyroux, Pellisier, Garbutt, Ford, Kheirellah as well as Casty if he has another go.  

    If he gets a bit more stamina he’ll be a French international regular.

    Isnt Houles a good enough coach?  Genuine question as I’ve never been to see him coach the team.


    From what I've read and seen he's a good coach who has a different philosophy than alot of other coaches, he's not the copy and paste type of coach.

    But only 3 foreign players against 6 in your new club . We will not say that Carcassonne is a Country.RL team😘

    Belmas set to sign in Superleague and Moa has injury with lengthy unavailability

    That's why Carcassonne wanted me to translate for all the foreign players😁, I need to learn Fijian next. 

    I'm not criticising Lézignan, Carcassonne would probably do the same if they had the money, they spoke to baitieri but couldn't come close to his offer from Lézignan, 

    It shows the the benefit that the Catalans are having on elite and French RL, 

    We have 5 or 6 players from Perpignan at Carcassonne too, 

    The Carcassonne players are looking forward to playing against players like Maloney and inu. I'm sure the ex pro players will be a great influence on the younger players, I just hope all the good work the youth section does doesn't go to waste meaning younger players don't get a chance or end up leaving the club.

  6. This was discussed at the last referee and elite 1 coaches meet up, the coaches said the fact that one team played the ball correctly and one didn't meant that the elite 1 team found the speed of the defence and the attack completely different, the speed of the play the ball is minimal but the Catalans moved up as soon as the player went to place the ball on the floor , elite moved up when the ball had gone through the legs,

    Any ideas as to why Joe Chan hasn't been picked? It's a decent (and young) French squad really considering their 3 best players are injured but they look short in the second row.

    I'd guess he isn't qualified as French yet, they left the country for a few years, or he doesn't want to be French.
