According to https://www.rugbyleagueontv.com although the Treize Mondial site doesn't mention it as a forthcoming live stream.

Saturday 27th November

France Elite 1 Championship

5:25pm Facebook Link: facebook.com/carcassonnexiii

5:30pm Carcassonne v St Gaudens

I read that today's games are both cancelled.  One due to COVID and the other because of bad weather.

See now Toulouse- Villeneuve/Lot is also being streamed too. Same time KO

 

From down town old ground - Stade Minimes. Interestingly Super League team are now using the ground as a training base. Last few years were at a ground near the raiway station.

I'm watching the Lezignan V St Esteve game and I've noticed a worrying trend in French rugby league in general, but I'm seeing it a lot in this game.

When a tackled player thinks he's being held down at the ruck and wants to win a penalty he just drops the ball on the ground deliberately without even trying to get up off the ground and play the ball. Very cynical play, the Elite One games I watch just seem to get slowed down by players trying to get penalties, either by rolling on the ground feigning injury or just dropping the ball on the ground to milk a penalty. 

This cynical play is really affecting the product and the intensity of the game because there are just too many stoppages.

That's intriguing, TD.  I hadn't really noticed that.  I will look out for it in the second half, if I get the chance to, but have to get ready soon for a service at Salisbury Cathedral at 5pm in which I am involved.  

I was enjoying the generally much more clean PTBs (actually using feet!) and the attempt to create something from scrums.

This is a good ebb-and-flow game so far, with the score tied at twelve apiece at the break.  The visitors have scored two tries to FCL's three.  St Esteve had a man yellow-carded late in the 1st half and FCL took all of about 30 seconds of play to make the advantage count.  

In the second half, Lezigan will have the wind and sun behind them, and I fancy them to go on and win.  Here is the link to the live broadcast:

Didn`t see the first half, so can`t comment with certainty.

However, in the French games I see, the officials are some of the worst anywhere for seeing phantom knock-ons, phantom forward passes, phantom obstructions. All these unnecessary interventions chop the game up, and send a message to the players that the ref and touch judges want to call things. Hence, the tackled player might well think it worth rolling the dice.

I just tuned into the second half and immediately M. Drizza came up with an obstruction penalty. There was no replay, but I didn`t see any clear obstruction.

If the officials had a "play on" attitude, stopped looking for reasons to blow the whistle, and just let the game flow, there`d be less incentive for players to milk penalties.

Best performance of the season by far from Baby Dracs - after taking that walloping at Avignon. Super try late on from wing Parenti  from Marty's exquisite pass.  FCL to Limoux next weekend for the 2nd Aude derby. Should be close.

I'm really impressed by Florian Valihen, love the way he plays the game. A prop that loves to throw the ball around, pass, offload and play with his head up. 

I think he only played one or two games in SL last year but should get more game time next season. He was my man of the match

My RL viewing on Sundays is always limited by my involvement in Anglican choral music also. Nice to come across another fan of Howells, Stanford, etc!

Don't think Vailhen has played in Super League yet. Maybe him and Salabio have this year to show up. The latter went on to play twice though for TO last season along with Flovie who was a try scorer yesterday for FCL. This lad Jobe looks promising. I think he came from rugby union. Got a good try Sunday. Played centre last year but second row yesterday.

Decent effort from TO Elite against Villeneuve/Lot. Let a good lead disappear but fell away 26-29. Laguerre got two tries but late on gifted a try. Their U19s undefeated after five games with 250 points to their name. Be interesting to see how they go next weekend in Perpignan.

The club's Facebook page, or YouTube page depending on the club, Carcassonne, Lézignan, are usually Facebook, Villeneuve,Albi and limoux usually you tube,

 

2 games a month to be on via Occitanie and sport in France from next week or the week after.

Yeah Jobe looks real promising, he looks like he can be anything he wants to be. Another one I'd like to see get game time in 2022. I see him as a centre not a second rower.

Wasn't Ted Heath the conductor there back in the days.

I was brought up as a methodist you cannot beat an old Wesley sing along:)

On another note our local church in Kent (COE) has a brilliant vicar who also plays a mean game of cricket and as for the after match bar (In the church) you cannot beat it:)) A couple of years ago an Ex England RU International from Warrington forgot his name got married in the church and i nearly fell off my stool when I was sitting outside our local pub opposite and Ellery Hanley turned up :)))

Hello, Paul.

No, Ted Heath wasn't the director of music there, but he did live at a large house in the cathedral close, called Arundells, which is now a museum.  Given his love of music, I have no doubt he would have often walked across to the cathedral to attend choral evensong or a concert; it would literally have been a two minute walk from his house to be seated in the quire.

When our daughter (now in her '30s) was about ten, we were shopping in Salisbury one Saturday and popped into WH Smith's.  Ted Heath was sat there, a rather forlorn, disheveled sight, waiting for people to buy his new book so he could sign it for them.  We whispered to our daughter, sotto voce, that the man nearby used to be the prime minister.  "What him?" she exclaimed incredulously.  "Shh!" we exhorted, but that only prompted her to ask again - definitely not sotto voce - "What him?"

I agree that the Wesleys gave English hymnody a real shot in the arm, and the tradition that developed - especially of fuguing tunes - has stood the test of time well.

Three months ago, John Woodcock, the esteemed cricket correspondent, was buried in the village church at Longparish, about twenty-five miles from here, in Hampshire.  Apparently, that day, the village was like a visual who's who of world cricket!  It must have been a bit like your Ellery Hanley experience.

I wasn't actually singing in a choir in the cathedral this weekend (though I have done that often in the past), but rather reading a lesson, on Saturday and Sunday evenings, in the annual Advent Procession, Darkness to Light.

Apologies, that has taken us completely off topic!
