  1. Smashing weather in Whitehaven. The cloudy bit on the TV, is that North to Scotland, or south over Blackpool?
  2. Kheiralla won't be risked as he is coming back from a calf strain. Gigot isn't match ready yet, maybe he will be in the squad for the Swinton game. There are a couple coming back from injury as well so maybe they will get some game time today but they should use the whole squad.
  3. No, I think there will be a crowd. I'm not sure of the gate receipts, I would assume yes.
  4. stranger things have happened, i'm sure Batley might have a word to say about that
  5. A game is never easy before the whistle, only after, sitting in the sheds savouring a winning 50-0
  6. Something like.... The Toulouse Olympique XIII v Swinton Lions match on Saturday 22 May, initially scheduled for Ernest Wallon, will now be played in England. Kick-off at 4 p.m. (French Time), broadcast live on the OuRLeague platform. As a reminder, club subscribers and partners will be able to watch the match for free using the code sent to them before the match against Widnes. If you have not received yours, please contact the club. The Blues and Whites find themselves in the same situation as for the match against Widnes, which has already been moved across the Channel, namely that TO and Swinton face each other only once during the regular season, the two teams are obliged to play this match, as stipulated before the start of the season by the English federation (RFL). This match, which will be played at Heywood Road, home of the Lions, will be considered a home match for TO and as such, they will receive 90% of the revenue generated, as access to the broadcast is by the pay-per-view system. One more reason to watch this game!
  7. The scheduled home match for TO at Ernest Wallon has been switched to Swinton. https://www.to13.com/a-la-une/nouveau-match-a-domicile-delocalise-en-angleterre-pour-le-to/ Maybe TO should play all the home matches at Heywood Road from now on
  8. For "them" .... https://www.lerugbynistere.fr/news/reglement-la-regle-de-residence-a-5-ans-repoussee-a-2021-1008201525.php Translates as 5 years up from 3 but not starting now until 31/12/2021, but that's a global rule. I can't find an equivalent for RL though, I always thought it was 4 but I'm sure someone else will have a link to something relevent , maybe audois will be allong shortly
  9. He was going to play in America, but that fell through. Physically he is immense, but he is difficult to deal with. Maybe he needs more time to mature.
  10. I'm surprised Killer is in the list. He is getting a bit long in the tooth for this, but maybe there is enough left for one grand hurrah
  11. It's always at their expense. They would have been paying for Widnes to travel to Toulouse so it makes no difference.
  12. I believe the Widnes game is going ahead, but TO will be travelling to the UK for it
  13. Toulouse are already stretched as their injury list got longer this week. Building a team of experienced players also means that they are no spring chickens !
  14. I think that it is because London are full time, the RFL have said only full time need to fulfil their away fixtures in Toulouse
  15. There are different rules for Elite teams for the travel corridors, TO are considered Elite in France so fall into the same bracket as UK teams e.g. Champion League/Europa league games
  16. Curfew is at 7 but it's irrelevant pretty much as all you need is a bit of paper to say you are travelling outside of those hours for a justifiable reason. As TO are sorting out all the travelling from UK -> Blagnac -> Ground -> Blagnac -> UK in a plane/bus bubble, I don't think the curfew would be an issue anyway. My view is that this is tactical, having a lot of top players missing, thinking they would get hammered (no reason to believe in themselves though!) , they thought this was one they could miss
  17. He sounds a tad miffed... "TO are playing in England 15 times this season, we're not complaining, there is no possible reason why London can't come to Toulouse once"
  18. Very nicely surprised with the TO win today, I had them down as one of the 5 games they would lose this season. Not a draw dropping match to watch but a win is a win in the end. The pack and tackling were immense, I hope they can get some players back quickly in the week off and push on
  19. Apparently no. Can't touch the Elite 1 teams squads during the current Elite season.
  20. Yes, that threw a big spanner in the works...they are not happy bunnies i'm led to believe.
  21. There is a friendly between Catalans and Toulouse on the 13th as well
  22. Stan Robin has dropped out - no idea why at the moment
  23. Rémi is a massive signing. Not just because he is a top player, but what he can bring to the club from a "lets get the kids playing" point of view. A top french international player who should be helping push the club onwards and upwards. Let's just hope he gets to play this year !
