  1. If the Catalan u19s play like they did yesterday v Lézignan they'll lose with at least 40 points against toulouse u19s
  2. The Union highlights on channel 5 was decent to watch, even if I'm not a big fan of union it was well presented, well explained and very positive when talking about the games even if it was a kickathon.
  3. That's what lots of people can't understand over here, he wanted to go directly into elite 1 at the beginning but the old ffr xiii president put them in the third division, the new president believed his lies and out them in elite 2
  4. Toulouse also according to his Facebook. I feel sorry for the players especially the imports. It's not the first time he's brought players to France but had nothing lined up for them or money to pay them. At least this time the players only cam from the UK, last time it was four Australians that luckily got picked up by other clubs. I heard a story about his short time at Rochdale and London skolars .
  5. They've only played one of the 4 scheduled games. Luckily the Australian managed to find another club in elite 2.
  6. Ours are set dates so if it lands on a Sunday you don't get anything, except for Easter Monday and the Thursday of ascension.
  7. I've been thinking about this, as there's games on the Easter Monday, it would mean they'd have to play Friday night as it's not a holiday here, So even less rest.
  8. Or Sundays, even more baffling as the game in April is at 20h30 and good Friday isn't a bank holiday in France. Most people in France work until 6/7pm and 8 pm in shops. So they will have lost traveling fans.
  9. Carcassonne isn't far and Dave foti is working with toulouse too. So maybe transfers from Carcassonne airport? Just found his new website https://www.to13tours.com/
  10. I'm very surprised that the two French derbies are on a Thursday. Especially as good Friday isn't a bank holiday in France.
  11. He's going to villeghailanc, they're Carcassonne reserves but Locke won't play for Carcassonne. The reserve part as only been used so far by the villeghailanc reserve team (fourth division) playing some Carcassonne under 19s players as they where shorts of numbers. I can't see villeghailanc letting their star player (that they're paying,) risk injury playing for Carcassonne.
  12. Olivier does a great job bringing young players through. He did the same at Lézignan when he was coach there, it's understandable as he's part of the creps set up in Toulouse (high level rugby league centre) where the players study and train at the same time.
  13. They all looked strong for Toulouse, quite a few where bigger and stronger than the first team players! Some big squatting going on at the centre of excellence in Toulouse !
  14. Carcassonne v Toulouse Saturday night at 18h30 the u19s game is streamed too on the clubs Facebook page, which shows be a very good game. Catalan v Albi Saturday 16h30 Villeneuve v Lézignan at 15h30 streamed on the Villeneuve YouTube channel I think. Limoux v Avignon Sunday at 15h probably on the limoux/Stefan bonnery YouTube channel All times are French times
  15. Albi they reckon in the paper and could be playing Sunday against the Catalans
  16. Not been announced. I heard about it tonight. Avignon have just signed a hooker, so has Albi, it's definitely not Carcassonne. He's been contacted by super League clubs but wants game time so coming to elite 1
  17. There must be a lot of living under a rock people in France but it did get a few seconds on local TV and national papers. Hopefully it will continue next season. Especially with a big french city team now playing in the top division.
  18. Lézignan will be happy, a replacement for Maloney in a couple of years (joking fclxiii )
  19. https://shop.stevemascord.com/product/pre-order-andorra-golden-bulls-jersey/ I understand now that I've gone through to the shop, the Languedoc RL league where getting excited that a new team was being set up. But no just a nice shirt and nickname!
  20. Andorra did have a team in the late 90s I believe.
  21. A club has suddenly appeared on Facebook with a logo a nickname and a new shirt! I hope it's a real team and not another one of the phantoms teams to sell a bit of merchandise etc Everything on the page is in English and a chance to buy the shirt in both the northern and southern hemisphere. Seems very similar to other ventures that never really happened.
  22. Avignon u19s may be pulling out of the league due to lack of players, they called off the home game against the Catalan last week and played with just 13 players the week before, it's worrying times!
