FRANCE v ENGLAND


Recommended Posts


If both sides can use relatively full strength sides of players available, I’d be looking at:

France

1. Kheillarah 2. Bergal 3. Jussame 4. Laguerre 5. Yaha 6. Gigot 7. Mourgue

8. Bousquet 9. Da Costa 10. Goudemand 11. Chan 12. Julien 13. Garcia

Subs: 14. Dezaria 15. Seguier 16. Sangare 17. Marion

England

1. Tomkins 2. Makinson 3. Newman 4. King 5. Johnstone 6. Lomax 7. Williams

8. Walmsley 9. Clarke 10. Watts 11. Bateman 12. Currie 13. Knowles 

Subs: 14. Evalds 15. McShane 16. Harvard 17. McMeeken

flights from Cardiff to Barcelona are approx £13 one way at minute with Ryanair. 

Thats cheaper than the tolls one way alone.

 

from memory its about 90 euros each way from Calais to Perpignan

The start of half term week also. 
Pobably bad for travel costs, but good for convincing the missus we should all head to the south of France for a week

We always take Route 3 as once passed Lyon its plain sailing all the way to Calais and it avoids going around Paris which is a nightmare

We used to use 2 routes.  Rouen to Claremont Ferrand/Millau etc or Rouen/ Limoges/Toulouse etc.  The 2nd was favourite and cheaper.  Depends on how patient you are travelling.

Fuel in the Lot et Garonne was €1.39 (Creyse to €1.41 (Marmande) . Peage obvs more than that but generally, Intermarche fuel is very competitive. 

If it was me, I’d try the Eurostar and TGV as a) I’ve never done it and b) drops you off in Perpignan.  3 months in advance tickets though so confirmation of the game is critical.

Bien sur, aero a Perp, c’est preferable!

Paris, no chance.  I would go by Rouen every time.  Dreux, Chartres then to Peage on 154.  I’ve just consulted the oracle and it used to be €50ish each way Peage.

Limoges is the easiest drive though.

Ive never been over your way Kiggy.  St.Gaudens the farthest.

If people are going by train and save Tesco credit card vouchers, they can get big reductions on Eurotunnel.

Exactly the way I do it - Limoges route far easier than the A75.

Me and Mrs Phil fancy a long weekend, either in Barcelona or Perpignan but we’re struggling to find reasonably priced direct flights.

Any tips folks? Thanks in advance

Do you not think Remi Casty's maturity and experience could be useful in what could be a youthful French side?  Otherwise, I largely agree with your selection.  By the way, it's Mourgue; I wouldn't want a wrongly spelling of his name to bring a promising career to a dead end, as it were!

Manchester to Carcassone on Fri 22nd (5:30am flight though) back on Mon 25th - £51? Carcassonne is way nicer than Perpignan for a weekend away, easy to get to Perpigan by car or train.

If you can get down to Stansted or Luton, flights to Beziers look to be pretty cheap on that weekend too. You can fly from Manchester, but it would be out Saturday back Tuesday.

If you can fly to Girona and get the local train in, it gives you another option. Check who flies to Girona. Train to either Barca or Perpignon.

I am not sure he’s required. Fair bit of experience in the pack with Bousquet, Julien and Garcia plus Kheillerah and Gigot in the backs. And the Catalan youngsters more than held their own at Saints the other week. So I’d say a perfect opportunity to give them top level experience. I’d actually do the same with England. It’s why Harvard is in the 17. I’d be tempted by a couple of others as well; Oledzski would be a certainty if fit. 

Acknowledged on the name… and changed!

Alternatively stay in Narbonne - less touristy but v beautiful and closer to Perpignan. Carca that weekend are at home to Albi IIRC though if you want to see two games.

That would be a complete waste of everybody's time and resources. We know what those players can do, same goes for Roby and the like, so let's use this as an opportunity to blood some younger players.

I doubt that the club's will release their players for a one off game as they may not be allowed back in without quarantine etc 

Last year the English players had to stay in Australia,
