Yep, that team looked very young and small. Doesn't help when one of the players gets sent off in the second minute

They have a few who played u19s last year not sure of there names but the lock and the props looked good

Three quarters of the team played under 19s last season, it's going to be a long year for them, maybe one or two players they had in France b will make a bit of a difference but I can't see Cesar rougé and tiaki Chan playing many games for them if they're not in the full time Catalan squad

And their team went undefeated the last season in U19 so theyre like the best we currently could have.

There's a big jump from u19s to elite 1, there's some tough physical players in elite, they've lost the best young  stand off they have for a few months too against Lézignan Julian Laporte, he's still only second year u 19, he was at Carcassonne last year and played one first team game, well protected by Mila Simon, Bastien Canet and  Bastien escamilla plus Clem Boyer, this year he's been thrown in at the deep end in a very young team,

Cracker of game at Limoux yesterday. Pia after ten years away will show - I think they can cut it. St Gaudens  also seemed to do well at Albi of an opener. Dragons reservers played with 12 players from the first minute. Came back in late on - liked the lad from Albi though Bonillo with a powering run down the middle. Early days obviously - but hope in the Elite 1

Saturday France 'B' played with a group with just 70 Super League games on while the Knights could call on 700.

Best use of Elite 1 with it being ´off season´ is the chance for some players to get games back under belt and be in good nick to be picked back up by other clubs when uk season starts again.

Yes it's getting better slowly. Pia came up after winning all games last year. From up in Provence Carpentras U19s put forty past Carcassonne Saturday - their U17s were  champions last year. Hopefully their seniors could return in the near future and getting back in Elite 1

He's building a house in Pia, great for elite 1, not good for him! I'm sure he'll be getting a hand to build the house by friendly builders from the Pia area 😁

Nobody told him... Worst place to build in the area.

What’s wrong with Pia?

Mayor is subpar. Gypsies everywhere. The town has an habit of concentrating the worst with the ugly.

It does not benefit from the Perpignan infrastructure as the old mayor chose to vinculate the city to another "communauté de communes" and the city is now linked to other small towns most of them in the neighbouring region of Aude. 

Its a nonstop story of bat s h i t insane political decisions that were made and continue to be as of today.

What happened to the old Marie Guy 🙂 remember him employing 3/4 Aussies players on the council as roadsweepers LOL:) I remember one Aussie telling me he was on 4000 euros a month but hadn't actually swept any roads yet:)
