Definitely left field this announcement but sincerely hope it’s true and that Montpelier sharks actually exist.

They definitely exist because they have Twitter and Instagram accounts AS WELL as their Facebook account.

Throw in Marseille and French RL is looking good.

I don't think anyone is talking about 6 French SL teams. The discussion is about which big cities could potentially step up to Elite 1

Both in elite2 I believe.?

Would be good to see them both in Elite 1 at some point. Marseille, Montpellier, Lyon, Toulon, Avignon plus Catalan and Toulouse alongside the traditional teams such as Carcassonne, Villenueve etc is quite an attractive looking league

All we need now is for somebody to work Leigh into the argument and we’ve got a full house.
