    Peyrou, Paolo, norman, schaumkel,armitage,belmas. All are back soon from injuries 

    Desperately sad to see Lloyd White pull up again, this time in the 1st few minutes. He really does not have any luck with his injury. I wouldn't be surprised if we don't see him play again this season. 

    Norman might make it to the squad for the Huddersfield match but he is no where near match fitness yet, although I would take 20minutes of him on the pitch for none at all. Maybe Mitch will be back, but more likely he will be available for the Saints match early June.

    The club had an option. They threw them under the bus.

    OK. From your perspective could you explain? I know we all have different views, and I guess i'm a bit closer to the TO camp than most on this forum, but in your opinion (and i'm not going to be judgemental) what should the club have done differently, considering it was a criminal matter?

    Yes, my pre-season enthusiasm for TO has cooled massively - because of the manner in which they treated Ford and Kheirallah.

    Still hope they nab a few wins over the season, but I'm not nearly as invested in cheering them on as I thought I would be.

    I think Wakefield will edge a snooze-fest here. 22-8

    It was a shame that things worked out like that. However, I wouldn't blame the club, it was Ford and Kheirallah who did the lying and criminality which gave the club no option. I would have loved them to have been a part of the SL journey but they only have themselves to blame.

    I really haven’t thought about this in great detail, it’s just popped into my head, but as so many people on this forum are keen on French RL developing would anyone be interested in grouping together and sponsoring a French team, maybe one in Elite 2, and helping them fund a youth system or something? No idea how we’d go about finding a suitable club, how many people would be interested or how much we could raise, but just putting it out there.  If it’s a ridiculous idea then say so 😅

    I would. As with everything though, it's disposable income that would be an issue. I know an English guy who sponsors one at least player at TO. 

    Helping out a youth team would be a really good idea, one not associated to an elite club. 

    I've thought of doing it with my kids athletics club, but the FFA through money at them anyway

    Returns for Toulouse Olympique in the next couple of weeks and to say that they've missed him is an understatement. Really important player for them and I hope alongside the signing of Corey Norman he Five a them a huge lift.

    On another note, if my estimation is correct he will qualify to play for France through residency at the end of next season, France should do anything they can to convince him to play for France. 

    I doubt he will play in the next 2 games, maybe back in 3-4 weeks. They will win a few more games, not many, but maybe just 1 more than Wakefield or Salford, I reckon Leeds will kick on now.

    You got my drift didn't you though ? Toulouse had to agree to pay the away clubs travel costs to be allowed into the Super League. If this is going to prove too much for them, then so be it. 

    Not quite, they were told they would still be liable for the travelling costs after they had won promotion.

    Not being able to recruit earlier and the issues with Ford and Killer 2 weeks before the season started were sort of the nail in the coffin for their first half of the season.

    If Leeds were in a similar position would the Leeds chairman be saying the same thing? Or would the RFL be stepping in to avoid a "proper" team from being relegated.

    For what it's worth I believe all teams promoted should be given 2 years to help, French or not. The gap is too great.

    It’s poor from TO, refs not going to change his mind if you mouth off

    Part of my issue is consistency. I don't mind if they get it wrong, they're only human and all TO's home games have no video ref so the guy is on his own out there. I just wish they were consistent, as shown in the 2nd half when a couple of Leeds lads had a go at the flag fiddler on the line...same situation but no penalty. By that time it would be made no difference, Gigot would probably have kicked it backwards...but even so, consistency is needed so the players feel more confident with the decisions.

    Looks like a desperate throw of the dice by Toulouse, signing someone who was retired and will be well off the pace for some time, at a point where they desperately need to win games very soon to stay in touch with Wakefield and Salford, currently on six points.

    Why do they need to stay in touch with Wakey and Salford? They just need to finish 11th

    Probably what Fev are thinking about Johno Ford at the moment. Apart from the desperate need to win games that is.

    They've been looking for someone to replace Johno for a while. He seems willing and able. If you have a suggestion for an alternative then I can give you Sylvain's number.

    I see Gavin Marguerite has just returned to the TO Elite side, is there a chance that he could be used to solidify depth within the first team for the rest of the season?

    I read that too. He's a strong lad and scored a lot of tries when he played before but his head was not in the right place at the time. Maybe he has matured a bit. Is he ready for SL? Sylvain and Adam will be the judge I guess, we will have to see. Anymore injuries though and they will have to bring in more Elite players so there is a chance.
