Peter - Think their turn round came at Lezignan. Like NRL recruit Peats along with flying winger Pedrero and young full back Fabre. Will follow the streaming Saturday evening with interest.

All four 4 Elite 1 games are being streamed. Good to see Toulouse channel viàOccitanie spreading it's wings covering the game up at Avignon. Next week big game at Domec with visitors Lezignan. Hope they can match Limoux's turn out of last week.

Well deserved victory for the home side. Good all round performance against a rather sterile ASC outfit. Yes, Pedrero is rapid.

Disappointing performance from Carcassonne. Albi too good for them on the night. Disipline seemed to carry on over from Limoux last week. They had players missing but that doesn't excuse them. Will have to sort themselves out to get anywhere near Lezignan next week. Young Fabre again shinning. TO must surely be looking at him.

Yes, Fabre is quality. Really surprised Houles hasn’t snapped him up yet. He’s still only 20 so time for him. His mum is in charge of the local academy. I think his grandad is with the Occitan league set-up.

Not great from ASC, I bet Boyer wishes he had stayed at TO now !!

Yes about Boyer! Wants to win a Elite 1 Trophy ditto too with Ader at Limoux after both played in the Championship across the Channel.

Fabre went to Melbourne Storm summer school along with the Dragons Rougé. Same age but the latter played SL last season while the Tarn lad had a bad injury  which kept him out for a full season. He looks class as you say. 2022 WC should see Fages-Mourgue in the halves maybe. Waiting for Fabre-Rougé then to arrive in France 2025.Exciting possibility.

The French team won't have any elite players in the team, they'll all come from super league or the championship, 

Fabre is a very good player and doing well at full back, Boyer was playing and helping with the coaching in Toulouse elite team, he is looking to get a club in Australia at cup level if possible,

Like to see Fabre and lancas? End up at a super league squad

Thomas lacans  is very dedicated, he's not very big but handles himself well at 9 and 6. He's quick with a good step too, His kicking game could be better but in a full time environment he'd excel, Baptiste is very skillful, especially his kicking game, he's quicker than he looks, maybe he has a flaw in his defence but again it could be worked on, if the Aude team ever appeared in the championship I reckon they'd both be recruited. 

Thomas was in the Catalan academy u19s as a 16 year old. They both played elite 1 at 17/18.

Round 12

All four games interesting this weekend end. Bottom two sides meet up at St Gaudens hosting TO Elite 1. Limoux sit out. St Esteve with half a dozen from the Dragons including Romano and Cozza who both travelled to Leeds yesterday. Le Cam back from injury. Avignon  visitors after hammering Villeneuve/Lot last weekend .The excellent channel ViàOccitaine will cover this game. Should be interesting.

Albi flying at the moment after fine performances at Lezignan and Carcassonne recently go up to the Lot country. The weekends Big Game is in Carcassonne when FCL come to town on Sunday for the 4th Aude derby. Be interesting as the Canaris cut it's wings in the Tarn last week.

See that St Gaudens have pulled out again v TO Elite 1. Don't think we can continue like that unfortunately. They've no reserves or U19s. It's a shame. Remember them winning the Championship against Treize Catalan (Dragons to come) at Aime  Giral.

What’s the issue there @audois, players or money, or both? Such a shame if another team drops out of Elite 1.

All four ties to be streamed this weekend.In Perpignan the Dragons reserves receive Lezignan. Last November just 24-22 for FCL. Should be close again with Maloney, Maria and Baitieri  returning home. Some of the local youngsters will I imagine wanting to impress with the Featherstone match next week.

The other game with real interest tomorrow up the Aude valley with Limoux hosting Albi. The last time they met up in the Tarn Albi where hopeless losing 12-44. Since then thought they're turned things round sitting nicely in 4th place afer getting the better of Carcassonne 34-16 and St Esteve 32-26. Things now moving on. Round 14 this weekend with just four matches left after this weekend. Here that the Finals will be in Narbonne on 22nd May.

St Esteve-FCL turned up as expected. The Aude side led at the break 4-10 but couldn't hold on as the Catalan youngsters - average age 21 - ran away with it 32-16. Even with Maloney, Maria and Baitieri on board made no differenve. McNamara, Bosc and Moa watching on would have been pleased.

Maybe a coming of age for the towering back row Le Cam. Scored two tries and made another. The choir boy look was every where using his height impressively. He played for France against England at Stade  Brutus back in October and scored a try. Could well feature Saturday against Featherstone in the Cup. The other forward who showed up was another lad from Provence in Vailhen - scored a try and broke the line several times.
