Shame about the huge outs in Fages and Bousquet.

I'm disappointed that Miloudi isn't there. He always makes a game more fun and watchable with his high-jinks and antics.

He's in France B to play Knights Oct 1st

3. Samisoni Langi
4. Matthieu Laguerre
5. Fouad Yaha

10. Mickael Goudemand
11. Benjamin Jullien
12. Paul Seguier/Maxime Stefani

Has Chan opted for somebody else then. 

As per @ATLANTISMAN's youtube channel where he asked Alex Chan on Joe's stance on playing for France - I believe he said something along the lines of he didn't want to take the place of a born-and-bred Frenchman in the squad at this point in time.

I saw that a few days ago and my reaction was to think that he was there for game-time. I thought he was still a strong chance of making the main squad.

I feel his unpredictable, off-the-cuff style offers an added element that could have aided France.

Oh well... I hope he goes well against the Knights. I suppose if there are late pull-outs or injuries he's always a chance of getting a call-up.

Possibly S according to Fédération Française de Rugby XIII regardinf France B

 We have three objectives: to prepare for the future and plan for the 2025 World Cup, to play high-level matches to make them progress and finally to open the door to the World Cup squad for high-performance players in the event of injury.

Is Joe French born? If not he’s no longer eligible on residency once he heads to Melbourne

Neither of the Chan lads are, both Australian born I believe. 

Yeah I remember stumbling upon that inadequacy in the rules after Kheirallah left Toulouse, extremely strange requirement and I wholeheartedly agree with you that being capped once should confirm eligibility in perpetuity.

I also think a cumulative residency option for eligibility should be imposed as is the case in some other sports, what amount of years that should be is not something I can answer but breaking a 4 year residency should not require an individual to start the required continuous 5 years again to gain eligibility.

It's the older Chan Tiaki - isn't playing against the Knights

There are two players in both squads Le Cam and Rougé - wanted them to have some playing time

Gigot seems to have gone back to his own town Avignon. Frayssinous was convinced by his desire to be involved - last chance maybe

The coach has other names such as TO players Bergal and Jussaume as back- ups if injuries occur too

7 players from TO

13 players from Dragons

Fages seems to have no interest in playing for France injury or no injury i predicted at the start of the season that regardless he would not appear in the WC for them.

Just watch Joe Chan fly he will be sensational after a couple of seasons at the Storm the next SBW his ability to unload in the tackle is superb and will only get better.

 

Paul

PS/Remember them when they first came over in 2006 we used to call their club car the Chan Van with all the little rascals in it:)
