Toulouse New Signings

Agree that TO definitely need to be looking for more if they are to stay up next season. That doesn't necessarily mean a load of big NRL/SL names as London showed a few years ago but all the signings thus far only appear to be adding depth.

I really hope they aren't underestimating the gulf between the Championship and Super League.

I don’t think it’s a case of the quality but more the availability.  Very few headline props available anywhere that’s why I mentioned Moran earlier. Mulally has been playing with Carcassonne, has SL experience.  Could be that the plan is to look at these and any others as the season unfolds but this is the problem promoted teams have.

I've no idea. All I have seen (largely from on here) is they were planning to largely go with what they have with the addition of 3 or 4 new recruits. 

So we agree. Without knowing what they already have on the cap! Results, in how they recruit. So we can’t really go down the lines if they get relegated based on poor recruitment.

I agree, there is obviously a dearth of players for any promoted club. I do think TO potentially have an advantage over previous relegated clubs insofar as there are a lot of Super League standard French players who are just on the periphery at Catalans. 

There are still some very good options from the NRL dependent on quota spots and their ambition. Edrick Lee & Dunamis Lui would both be great signings if they could pull them off. Obviously, neither of those two may be interested but options do exist as limited as they are.

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

I thought he was already full time?

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.

Yes, that’s good news. He’s a nice kid and well disciplined on the park. It was a tough decision for him as he now has a young family to think of.

I see a contemporary of his Bastien Canet is still up to his old tricks. Playing for ASC he still is as clueless about discipline as he was when at TO.

Springer is confirmed by TO XIII. Not quite sure what to make of that one.

It was only last year that he was one of the very few worth feeding in the Toronto pack while they were in SL, that experience is pretty important as most of the Toulouse pack have effectively been playing on a flat track for years in the Championship.

TO junior with a decent amount of SL experience and plenty of years left in him, makes plenty of sense to sign him IMO. They look to be playing it smart and building plenty of capable depth.

Yep. Good point. Can't disagree with you at all there.

Fingers crossed he works out well.

It wasn't really. Springer played his best rugby under Daryl Powell at Cas...........he's a useful squad player

I didn't actually realise he'd made 58 appearances for Cas. I don't think he has really kicked on from the promise that many had when he first came onto the scene but he's certainly a useful addition for Toulouse and brings SL experience. Plus he's a Toulouse junior too.
