  1. I’d have to agree with Davo5 Lachlan Walmesley is a decent young prospect who backed himself with a team expected to struggle, be interesting to watch his development at Halifax and see if he can back it up with a bit more pressure on him. Surprised with the Cunningham signing as no better than White/Pelissier and I’ve heard of a couple more targets for Toulouse and they are more squad fillers than SL starters. looks like they may go with what they’ve got and back themselves, very similar to Leigh ironically, I hope they don’t waste their chance in SL after all the hard work to get there.
  2. Toulouse striking fear into the heart of SL with the signing of journeyman James Cunningham.
  3. Strange signing for Leigh Jacob Jones, I wonder if the incoming coach has worked with him previously?
  4. Just to balance the debate, can the OP quantify “great” in the thread title, what does it actually mean? Im glad Toulouse have won I’m interested to see how they approach SL and maybe shake things up a bit, in the same way I wanted Toronto to the same. On the flip side it’s not great when the Toulouse chairman releases a statement the day after winning promotion stating they aren’t going to spend the cap, that’s not going challenge the other teams and help with the new Sky deal is it?
  5. What I do know is they are going to struggle with the quota spots as they have signed players up on long term deals so unless they pay them off they are stuck. The only one I’m aware of leaving is Hitchcox. What I’m not sure about is if they will be granted any dispensation or if English players count differently. They now face the age old struggle of players already having deals in place.
  6. Toulouse need to invest in the squad to compete in SL week in week out they are an aged team.
  7. Jesus, I wish I’d screenshot all those posts about how Featherstone would have done better than Leigh in SL.
  8. Enlighten me to the vision then Nigel.
  9. At last somebody gets it. Praise the lord.
  10. You’ve used this line before on another thread regarding the same subject and you were made to look stupid then aswell.
  11. I’ve told you all before Toulouse are the saviours of Rugby League in Europe. When they beat Featherstone next week and get promoted to SL the french TV stations will be throwing millions of euros in our direction, SKY will be desperate to re-negotiate our paltry TV deal and all the clubs will be awash with cash! Honestly it will be brilliant, much better than when Toronto came in.
  12. I’m a Leigh fan and I think the man can be an absolute Phukwit, how he expects to bring players in with this nonsense is beyond me, HOWEVER, if he is talking Ben Flower & Blake Wallace who have refused to play whilst taking a wage then I support his rant.
  13. Don’t worry, haven’t you heard, once the saviours of RL Toulouse get to SL the whole of France is going to take notice of English Rugby League. Bein sports will then come to the Super League table with a massive french TV deal to share out amongst English clubs and London will be quids in!
  14. Other than the dramatic drop in attendances in Wigan the biggest worry for me would be the clubs production line. Historically Wigan have produced superb game breaking athletes, players that you just have to clap when they come up with match winning plays, more recently it seems they are producing clones of slightly too small over aggressive middles with high fitness levels and the skill coached out of them. Not quite props not quite back rows but a long line of grafters. These players don’t strike fear into the opposition like they used too.
  15. So did the owners of York, London, Fev, Toulouse & Bradford all let their egos get the better of them or just the one you don’t like?
  16. Literally no Fev or Leigh fans are saying that.
  17. Even though they are my team, I’m not of an IQ that means I don’t appreciate other teams and the features & benefits they may bring to the top table. What irks me is that people like yourself don’t understand that Leigh did SL a favour by agreeing to step in and fulfill a fixture list on less money than everyone else and agreed to be whipping boys for a season so not to jeopardise the Sky TV funding for the other SL teams, so on that respect they were “SL ready” ie full time, stadium that can take a TV camera and a crowd and not be embarrassing on TV etc etc. Secondly, since that point more than a few posters, You, Man of Kent, Sir Kevin Sinfield just to name a few have all stated on multiple occasions that Leigh was the wrong choice, that York, Toulouse or London offer MORE to SL than Leigh, that the game was corrupt for putting Leigh in and it was all favouritism and back handlers and that the inclusion of Leigh is “insular” and it’s no wonder sky have reduced funding. So therefore, by default by promoting one of Toulouse, York or London by whichever format ( selection or promotion) is by you’re own definition going to make them saviours of SL and a huge new TV package will be forthcoming. Its in writing, In black & white over the last 9 months with other posters confirming what I’m saying, go and re-visit it rather than sit here denying it and changing your tune now you’re called out on it like an Internet forum Boris Johnson.
  18. Shock. Same culprits who claimed Toronto were the new saviours of SL and then Toulouse are all disappearing into the shadows or pulling the handbrakes up sharpish now that it looks like Toulouse will actually do it. Same people with the who said we can’t put Leigh or Featherstone in because they’re small northern pit villages. For the good of SL and it’s credibility it has to be Toulouse or York they’re so cultural and offer so much more to SL. I can’t wait to see what they bring.
  19. They really do and you’re just trying to be hard work. ”Toulouse bring miles more to SL” ”Toulouse bring a major culture capital to SL” ”Toulouse will bring revenue & sponsorship to SL” ”Sky will love another french team in the league and derby with Catalan” “How we can we sell the rights for more money by bringing in Leigh over a major french city” Now stop being a #### and go and have look back through the hundreds of pages of comments about how Toulouse are going to revolutionise SL Europe and help get this massive TV deal that Sky are with holding because we don’t have a league full of major UK & European cities.
  20. No they weren’t? They failed to fulfill their fixtures as they failed to pay their players. They kicked themselves out.
  21. Good luck to Toulouse next year I hope they get that spot in SL. Be interesting to see if they are the saviours of SL that everybody is guaranteeing on here. Same as when Toronto arrived and were going to shake up SL and win the comp within 3 years. Let’s see how many of the posters on here are still banging the drum when Toulouse are rock bottom and presented with the same sobering problems faced by Leigh currently.
