  2. Written in the local Perpignan paper today that the Catalan have to pay the travel costs etc for referees and visiting teams in the cup, just as toulouse have to for every home super League game, so it looks like the agreement has  been carried over to super League for Toulouse

    If there is ever a good time to face Saints, next weekend could be it for Toulouse. Batchelor is definitely out after failing a HIA and Matautia and Walmsley picked up knocks in the second half last night and there were, prior to the season starting, three unvaccinated players at Saints, so there’s potential for quite a number to be missing through injury/unavailability. 

    The need for vaccination to enter stadium finishes on Monday, 

  4. It was enjoyable to watch Toulouse last night, French elite 1 players holding their own in a super League team ex French fringe super League players playing very well and getting game time in super League, Toulouse look like they're adapting to the speed and physical needs of super League, it's all good news for the French national team. Maybe I'm being too positive 😁. Players with super League experience are now playing both in elite and super League, ex NRL players in elite too, 

     

    The elite  top 6 play offs will be very interesting this year and they'll be very tight physical games, top end RL is looking up in France we now need to work very hard on everything below the top 6 in elite, 

    The French u19s have names a 60 player train on  squad and will have players with super League first team experience like Cesar Rougé and Joe chan and players playing regular elite 1, so the tests v England could be very good to watch. 

    Back to French bashing and negativity now 😂

  5. They'd keep a team each in elite, players not playing for the Cathares can drop back to their club of origin, it could work as a lot of young aude players are good enough for elite but not good enough to play in the best 3 teams in the elite so would be able to stay at their club and play elite instead of drifting down the divisions and often disappearing from the game., the level may drop in elite but the games will be tighter and another opening for the talented players to play a higher level, I think they want to go directly into the championship so they'd  get more funding from the region as they'd expect more traveling supporters from the UK, 

    I think it's the only way forward as the elite league is good to watch but not attracting people into the stadium or interest as most prefer to watch the super League, just look at the Catalan team, their reserve team gets hardly any fans in the stadium even though there's often a very good game and super League squad players in the team.
