Sounds like he’s still at Toulouse and going to play in Super League

The Novak playbook is alive and well.

Glad for Toulouse that they have a key player available

Houles made it known that covid had closed them down for a week or more before the game against the Dragons. Springer was injured I think and Vaivia had only just recently arrived back from Down Under.

Great news. Experience will be key for TO this year. The loss of Ford is less of an issue with Kheillerah back in play. 

Any confirmation if they’ve lost anyone else? If Vaivai, Springer et al are available, the disruption isn’t too great. TO may well remain competitive.

Well looks like Kheirallah might be featuring this weekend and this season after all, judging by his insta account. He got covid in January and so presumably proof of recovery is sufficient 

Only a 4 month pass. He still needs to be vaccinated for the future. And if he refuses to do that I am sure the club won't play him as it would be too much to invest in him knowing they have to change the team in 4 months time

The pass will probably disappear before April just in time for the French elections when they will give us our freedom back just  to show how well they handled the situation and convince everyone to vote for him again.

Losing Ford is a bonus. Never SL quality.

 

I think he was, and other SL clubs did as they tried to lure him away from TO.

Moot point, as we will never know now.

I think at the Dragons last week Toulouse only used 17 players and the Dragons 23/25.

They will pick up some wins for sure in the summer especially nowadays when most teams fly in and out same day (Madness)

 

Paul

What fact is that based on, that it is madness to fly in and out in a day?

I'm not sure of this fly-in-fly-out-same-day now. TO won't foot the charter jet as it's too expensive. From a TO perspective they are going back to flying scutter air so will be spending the weekend travelling

Which SL club was in for Ford? 

By his own admission, he said he didn't want to conform to the covid & Club requirements due to it affecting his chosen lifestyle.

And sometimes, later, 1800ish kick offs.

I never saw clubs arriving on a thursday for a Saturday game.  Friday, normally. 

4 days costs for a group of players and backroom staff (28?) is a big hit and i think it was just that.  Cost.

Once now 2 times a year, come on its either Super League or Mickey Mouse League 30 staff max for 3 nights including flights will be around 12/15K if a club moans at that they they really should not be in SL simple as that.

Cost of a charter flight in-out is around 30k. Much cheaper staying a couple of nights with hotels and normal flights.

You’ve quoted a fair few things in your time on here Paul without substance when asked so it’s quite reasonable to be challenged when saying it’s madness to fly in and out in a day.

Clubs might just consider that player recovery is not as jeopardised as was once thought of the 1 day trips.  They might also have considered whether players lazing around a golf hotel/club or hotel in Spain was good for retaining energy levels.  
Some clubs complained about the Mas DHuston noise levels from late events that were not notified to them.
