Certainly seems that way looking from the outside,if he just simply didn’t fancy it why wait until this late stage when it’s too late to bring in a quality replacement ?

To get maximum earnings then bail?

Gigot to Stand-off then.

Lucas Albert maybe

Given that they were reported to have signed 4 players from Championship clubs today I expect Ford won't be the only departure we see before the season starts.

Who are the 4?

Is one of the 4 Ben Cockayne?

The rules about unvaxxed players have only recently been tightened in France. So, yes, unfortunately it has come at a very late stage. He and the club had no alternative.

Kindaaa think he did actually.

I was born to run a club like this. Number 1, I do not spook easily, and those who think I do, are wasting their time, with their surprise attacks.

No, if you know the man then you would understand.

Albert and gigot in the half’s then. Wonder what position they’d use the quota spot on, I’d go with another prop.

They've been looking at a prop for some time now

Matty Russell, Chris Hankinson, James Cunningham and Gadwin Springer. Reported in an article on the Total RL homepage titled 'Chris Hankinson eager to prove doubters wrong at Toulouse Olympique'.

I'd read your post as they'd been announced today, hence was expecting 4 additional signings to the ones announced November/December time. Thanks for clarifying.

I wasn't aware that quartet had been signed a while ago and the article appeared today. It's most likely a piece put out to the press by Toulouse to distract from Ford leaving. It worked in my case at least.

Toulouse are up the creek without a paddle and they haven’t even got a canoe. 

Hopefully clubs travel to France with that attitude, starting with Huddersfield in 2 weeks time. Toulouse are rightly favourites for the drop but they’ll be putting up a good fight with or without Jonathan Ford.

I wonder if they could persuade James Maloney to go on loan for a few weeks while they look for a replacement? It could buy them some time for 5-6 weeks.

This is a great suggestion, he’d be an ideal player to bring in if only on a short term deal, he’ll be match fit as he’s currently playing at Lezignan.

Corey Norman, Anthony Milford and possibly Albert Kelly all without an NRL first team spot

I know it means little these days but Corey Norman has retired.

Catalans play Toulouse in a friendly on Saturday, that’ll give us a good idea of the players Toulouse have available and who it is that’s rumoured to be leaving Toulouse along with Jonathan Ford. They may even name a squad for the game today.

I will be there can't wait so will catch up with everyone:)

Maloney would have been contacted pretty quickly imo. Jason Baitieri would be another good call.

Hope none of them do the Shake N Vac. They don't need an injury crisis on top of everything else.
