  1. Good day for game over there just never capitalised on first up crowd. Paris obviously has links to our sport way back to first game there in 1933. There just not enough clubs nor benefactors these days to consider a pro team. It aleast gave thought to a french team in competition which we seen infield and very good average crowds with catalans. Obviously the holy grail is for france to be winning tests v big 3 which is still I say a bit off. That said the dragons cc success of 2018 would have shown mainstream france that sport making progress there. Toulouse are making plenty of right moves to join there fellow french team.
  2. Yeah my bad, sangare looked good in highlights today. Maybe revisit the academy catalans side would benefit more.
  3. Yeah not sure I believe we need another let's bash Toronto thread with leigh fans digging the boot in.
  4. I believe outside backs is more a a concern. Most french forwards hold there own yes there is some size issue, Springer there largest seems to still not developed to level needed for a superleague player. Far and away casty still the best french forward currently. Toulouse whole pack bar barthau is all imports now.
  5. Wow shows our sport in both comps got to bullying officials. Thing is there people they love the sport like us are helping.
  6. Yeah simply there alot of guys in twp who are not up to superleague level. I believe this season will be wake up call for there club.
  7. Play games at home, get catalans president see importance of test footy. Most difficult question to answer. Get ffr13 be more professional in test camps.
  8. gigot should be playing at this level he best player out of France at moment. Yes he can have a howler but he can also be brilliant.
  9. No doubt a avignon could be big as if not bigger than Catalans. My 2 cents worth on it I believe they need to look at taking busloads from albi which is league mad and up the road to some degree.
  10. Investing post * France- still grassroots strong in south towns and small cities weakness tv exposure and financial. * Pacific- great prototype athletes but money main issue * north America- potential in money, tv, sponsors lack of grassroots issue. * Wales- despite rugby union huge presence code goes through major periods in 1900s to 30s and 1995 world cup. But dropped ball throughout, i believe code may never reaches high it once acheived. * other areas England- Coventry and Bristol code needs presence in the south I go here rather than London. Ireland - code has presence from as many as 22 clubs to around 8 to 10. There where rumours of backer for Irish league 1 side. It could work if done right. Scotland - yeah don't see every a pro side game weak there at present. Serbia - I hold off for 5 seasons before this bid money main issue I see. 30 clubs in league so strong grassroots.
  11. He was highly rated coming through, but seems he best chance at superleague is interchange hooker.
  12. Look tbh twp will struggle bit over death riding again by Leigh posters historically again and again. They think it's there God given right to be in superleague if anyone should be dirty you suggest Bradford should be. Expansion clubs are apart of sport teams from France and possibly usa, so get over it. It helps grow our code.
  13. Dragons get pasted watched highlights v giants terrible out wide
  14. Watched savelio for first time on Saturday here in Australia. He has makings, overall the gb tour showed simply picking nrl players by default not always the best option.
  15. 2500 at ernest for Toulouse decent turnout. But looks tiny at 19k stadium. Hard to really know what crowds be at superleague. Maybe 5 to 6k
  16. Given issues around no local tv deal then Toulouse is important.they may only be a 5-7 k crowd averages but give code credibility in France Yes avignon could be bigger in terms of crowds no doubt and or Carcassonne but it's does not do the same as Toulouse.
  17. Seems madness get that in 2 games they had nearly 12k through gate but generally fans of both teams would like to get to each game
  18. Indeed it is the sky is falling in
