Elite 1 is back this weekend


Recommended Posts

As a Frenchman, I find it important that you can have realistic information to have a real overview of the situation. I remain convinced that France and the development of its solid national championship is the key to the development of the discipline in Europe much more than other wacky projects that the media tend to put forward. I hope a team will represent our country in the Challenge Cup, we have so many good memories with Lezignan whether in Rochdale, Widnes, Barrow, Whitehaven or Workington. I take this opportunity to congratulate on this forum Barnya who is champion of France Elite and one of his sons champion of France in the U15 category.

The Federation and Luc Lacoste did a great job over the weekend. Taking it back to Narbonne was the right thing for sure. Two days of games never seen before. Saturday saw two wheel chair challenges Elite 1 with the Dragons Handi up against Montauban and Elite 2 between STO XIII and Vichy. Looks like that the Toulouse link-up is with the rugby union set-up at Ernest Wallon. Two womens' games Elite 1 Lescure from Albi up against the Catalan Deésses side and the Elite 2 between a side from Bordeaux-Bègles and Limoux.

On the Sunday 5 games covering games U15,U17,U19 and the Elite 1 Championship bringing it to a close. An excellent crowd bigger than it's been in some years. The Fed had lots of French jerseys and T-shirts for sale and two bands to keep everybody entertained.

I don't want to talk nonsense but I think that the bandas (the brass bands) were commissioned by the clubs of Limoux and Carcassonne

*It appears I think that both clubs have National U19s teams too. A final next weekend up at Albi

I remember years back TO came to Carcassonne with just nine lads u19s. Shows how much they've grown.

Is the wales international at albi on tv or online anywhere ?

 

Would expect. Toulouse based viàOccitaine did a decent job .for the Elite 1 Chamionship. Albi just up the road. France 2 free-to air public TV who did the St Helens Challenge Cup semi final in Perpignan recently could build on that.

100% agree. The videos of the games, the atmosphere and a good crowd were all plus points. It made me think back to days when Rugby XIII was stronger in France, although I admit much work is still to be done to get back to that. What I'd call a large stride in the right direction.

It takes wisdom to know when a discussion has run its course.

It takes reasonableness to end that discussion.

To be fair the  Aude sides have domainated of late and just down the road too. Limoux put a womens' as well as Leizinan put out a U15s. The Catalans U19 like wise with TO there. Enjoyed their close battle.

Looks like  Pia could be back in Elite 1 next season. The Catalans lost Palau a few years back  but Pia offfer some thing different. When they were kicked out they were a top side.

It's a step forward and some thing to build on for sure
