Toulouse imploding


Recommended Posts


I thought that the situation in France is such that he would not be able to play in France if he is unvaccinated?

That being the case the report is wrong in saying he would be absent for half the season due to not being able to travel to and from France, in fact being unvaccinated would rule him out of every game, why should he and 4 others fall out with the club they are just following the rules.

Not Toulouse’s fault at all, assuming the players leave with no pay off, hopefully TO have time to recruit players who are as good if not better than those refusing to be vaccinated.

Hardly Toulouse's fault if these requirements are mandated.

Warrington have managed to get the whole first team squad jabbed, although a few are still waiting for the subsequent doses. 

I don’t know how they’ve done it to be honest, whether it was through threats to not renew contracts, or (more likely) a team peer-pressure tactic. Would be worth passing their techniques on to other clubs though.

I’m pro-choice, but I’d hope the players would put their careers first.

This close to the season? They’ll likely end up with some Australians mid-season we’ve never heard of, a bit like Leigh’s recruitment last year.

At least one other non-French Toulouse player has been publically rather vocal in his opposition to vaccines so it's not unexpected there would be issues like this, but 5 is a bit of a surprise.

The thread title itself is OTT, Toulouse are not "imploding". Whilst they are likely to lose a group of players the club itself is stable.

Better getting rid of this group asap in my view as they won't be allowed to play at least half the games and as HS says maybe even all, it will be better for team unity in the long run. Also presents an opportunity for some French lads getting signed up.

Losing your first choice fullback and nearly 20% of your playing squad a matter of weeks out from your first ever game of Super League isn’t exactly “everything’s fine”, is it? A series of events, including players falling out with the clubs hierarchy, like this on top of the odds being stacked massively against them is tantamount to imploding.

I wonder if the RFL still have those 6 applications from last year.

Its Featherstones turn to help Super league.

I think I’d still rather see a depleted Toulouse side, just for the novelty of building some French RL presence in their own media, as with Cats the last couple of years.

I should imagine any French lad who would be equipped to play in SL would already be signed up by either French club Whippet, if these "unnamed" player's who are also unhappy with the situation are some of the better TO player's and they take their bat 'n ball home then Toulouse could go worse than Leigh's 2 victories last term, I had Toulouse as my favourites for the drop prior to this - I don't think they had a good enough squad -, I wonder where they will recruit suitable player's from judging by Leigh's efforts in finding and signing player's, don't forget that Adrian Lam whatever any fan over here thinks of him he is still high profile in Aus - even being the present Kangaroos assistant coach - went home on a recruitment mission for Leigh.

I'm hearing Ford isn't vaccinated either. So here goes : losing half your spine 3 weeks before the season starts.

Desperate times are calling for measures. They should go after Lacans. Gigot to 1, Albert 6 Marion 7 with Lacans at 9.

That’s the spirit. Do you do motivational speeches and if so can you come to my work and do one?
