  1. Cost of a charter flight in-out is around 30k. Much cheaper staying a couple of nights with hotels and normal flights.
  2. I'm not sure of this fly-in-fly-out-same-day now. TO won't foot the charter jet as it's too expensive. From a TO perspective they are going back to flying scutter air so will be spending the weekend travelling
  3. I think he was, and other SL clubs did as they tried to lure him away from TO. Moot point, as we will never know now.
  4. Only a 4 month pass. He still needs to be vaccinated for the future. And if he refuses to do that I am sure the club won't play him as it would be too much to invest in him knowing they have to change the team in 4 months time
  5. Not sure who this Will Price is but Will Pryce looks lively! To be honest, I'm really looking forward to seeing all the SL teams come and visit, I'm not yet that tribal to think only the team I support is the only one, it's going to be great to see all that talent on the pitch. Can't wait!
  6. Ankle. Scan tomorrow to see how long he will be out.
  7. Justin was a handful and had a good game, Lucas showed he is more than capable at this level as well. Didn't see much of Gigot, but I thought Laguerre showed he had some potential, again, he needs to find a higher level of aggression. His brother was better in my opinion for the Catalans. (It was mentioned that they are actually twins but I can't find anything to confirm that). Keep an eye on Stefani he looks very good. I wouldn't be surprised if he signs from the Broncos to the Elite team very soon.
  8. Not a bad game. I'm not sure Catalans sweated too much though, they picked up the pace when they needed to. It was interesting Toulouse scoring first and at 14-10 with a missed conversation looked closer than it should. I thought Hankinson had a good game as did Armitage. The latter if he can find some more aggression could have an outstanding season. Joussaum's injury is a big blow as he had his best pre-season training so far. All things considered with what has happened in the last couple of weeks and having to quickly move players into different positions it was a performance that shows promise.
  9. Who is going tomorrow? I will be there with Mrs Kiggy. Let's hope we can get through tomorrow without any long term injuries...and also for the Toulouse team.
  10. Junior only got back to France recently and Latrell is coming back from surgery. Might be the same for Gadwin. Still going to be difficult to get someone in such short notice, it will take a while for anyone to fit into the team
  11. Paul Marcon, but he's had a bad time of trying to get back to full fitness. No Junior on the list or Latrell. Got to go with what you've got.
  12. They've been looking at a prop for some time now
  13. No, if you know the man then you would understand.
  14. The rules about unvaxxed players have only recently been tightened in France. So, yes, unfortunately it has come at a very late stage. He and the club had no alternative.
  15. Anywhere north of Palais du Justice, up through the area called Carmes and onto Capitol. Lots of nice little bistro/bars, and as it's a big Uni city it's full of bright young things having a chill time. No1 son lives just around the corner from the Black Lion at Palais du Justice (the tram from the airport has a stop directly outside), No3 son just off of Capitol around the corner from the George and Dragon. Both areas super nice. Cafés around the actual Place du Capitol nice to sit in and watch the world go by but a tad on the expensive side (there's always McD though!) . There are some great little "curry" houses as well around and about, all you can eat buffet meals for 15€, very basic but good food.
  16. In reality, it is really no change to the situation when they were in the Championship, even so, changing the rules as late as that is not acceptable. Having to find close to 300K, still, to fund the travelling teams is no mean feat.
  17. I am led to believe they had to review their spending on players as they had the rules changed late in the season so that they now have to pay the costs of the travelling team.
  18. No, he was doing other stuff as well. This means he has to drop the other stuff if he wants to make a go of it. TO are happy that he has set his mind and effort on SL otherwise if they had any doubts he wouldn't have been kept on.
  19. Max Peuch has signed on a 2 year deal, he has decided to commit to full time rugby which is good news for TO. I hope he can step up to be SL ready in the pre-season
  20. Which is what Leeds were offering I believe. So TO get a year to see if he can cope with Super League and he won't be a bench warmer for a UK team.
  21. Great physical presence but didn't have a good attitude
  22. If he stays at TO then he will be coached by Remi. But it is a big "if" at the moment.
