So London are the only club expected to travel to Toulouse to play? Is the reason for that literally because they are the only fully pro team? Sorry but thats preposterous, why should that make things

The RFL needs to re-think it's decision for three reasons: Firstly, it does discrimate against full-time clubs in the championship, if there is a requirement for then to go to France and not part

I've no issue with that..... if you want to comment on that feel.free on that thread. This thread is about London broncos owd cock

Bloody ridiculous. Makes a mockery of the competition.  

If its unsafe... abandon the competition. 

If its safe... London should have a points deduction. 

 

Agree totally, they should face action if this is a ‘tactical’ decision.

Went to check out the Broncos website ... down. Taken together with the forfeit, not a good look.

I’m really not sure I can put into words how this makes me feel

Is this an option? Won't they be sanctioned for non fulfillment of a fixture? If not, I can see other teams doing this. 

Didn't Leeds do it last year with Catalans and get away with it? I said at the time that set a dangerous precedent and would encourage others.

The RFL are a Joke once again! Why is it only London Broncos were being forced to travel to Tolouse? when COVID is so serious in France currently, please don't say, they are Professional! All Championship Clubs travelled to Toronto!

They've also been referred to the RFL's Compliance Dept, according to reports.

Statement on Toulouse Fixture

by Broncos Media | Apr 8, 2021 | 2021, Club News

Standard-Article-Web-Banner-1080x600.jpg

Following the decision by the club not to travel to Toulouse for our fixture on the 17th April, and the subsequent press release by the RFL stating that Toulouse will award the game 24-0, the club would like to make the following statement.

The club have taken the difficult decision of not making the trip to France for the game on the 17th of April on the basis that we feel that we are not being treated the same as the other clubs in the Championship who are not required to travel to France in the current climate.  The club did offer to reverse the fixture with Toulouse which would have resulted in us giving up the gate receipts from the home game in August.

Chairman David Hughes commented “The RFL made the decision that our club should travel to France on the basis of being full-time and that our competitors who are playing for the same prize of promotion to Super League for the 2022 season do not have to travel due to being part-time.  We feel this doesn’t create a level playing field within our competition and brings into question of the integrity of the competition if we are having to adhere to different criteria.  At a meeting held In early March we made our feelings known about what was being asked of us which was supported by other clubs in the competition yet the RFL still insisted on us traveling.”

He added “We fully appreciate that the quarantine rules the Government have set out will impact part-time players on return as they have employment outside of Rugby League but feel that shouldn’t be a barrier to them travelling to France if this is planned with their employers an advance of the game.  Whilst our players and staff are full-time the quarantine will still have an effect on their personal lives in different ways to part-time players.  Under the current Government guidelines, anyone returning from France needs to self-isolate for 10 days but can release after 5 days following a negative PCR test so this would mean part time players would only need to request 4 days off from the employer in the 2021 season which we don’t think would be an unreasonable request.”

The club or any one from the club will not be making any further comment on the matter at the current time.

Toulouse pays them a private plane way and back in the same day, plus Covid test for all that cost a lot for the club. Definitly chickens....

Wasn't there an interview a few days ago where the coach Dan Ward said he was up for playing in France regardless. So why the contradictions?

Castleford have knocked early.

Very cynical decision by London. I think after the Halifax loss they knew it wasn't gonna turn out well against possibly the best team in the comp. 24-0 would be a good result for them considering what it would've ended up being
