Are you confusing the club with some of their fans?

I think this is actually more to do with how secure the London squad feel going to France when France is extending their lockdowns as cases surge. Why should London travel to France even if the flight has been paid by Toulouse? It seems weird that major sports governing bodies like golfs European tour who have cancelled the French Open and the ITF have delayed the French Tennis open who are professional outfits and then the clowns at Red Hall seem fit to make a team travel to a country where cases are surging.


Exactly.......

This would be ok if the reason cited (for not going to France) was the non level playing field and not the covid risk.

Strangely, the same people complaining here are the same ones complaining about how few fixtures Catalan completed last season.
When covid was rife over here, they were demanding that Catalan fulfil their fixtures.

Instead of taking EVERY opportunity to take a pop at anything related to French RL, lets take out the anti French bias out of the argument and have a sensible conversation :IDEA:

Certainly not a level playing field for French club Catalans Dragons when a home cup tie cannot be played at their home stadium - nor in their home country.
Yet they are courageous enough to travel to England where the experts have insisted that the government have failed to deal with the pandemic - while a large minority whinge about their ' freedom,liberty and rights ' when it was France,and other countries that had proper,initial lockdowns.
None of the English clubs entered into the Betfred Challenge Cup had to leave their country...
No reserves,but resilience,persistence and determination are omnipotent.

Given France has gone into a third major lockdown, including nightime curfews and travel restrictions, I honestly don't blame anyone for not wanting to go there just to play sport.


Catalans v Wakey.. Enough of this gruff. The rules/laws were put in place and agreed too.

Some need to follow them.

It's the "some" rather than the "all" that seems to be the issue here though.

Farcical. Having rules for different teams makes the competition nothing but a joke.


It is very strange to have different rules for different clubs in the same league in a professional sport, even if some players at some clubs are part-time.
For contributions, remittances, payments, and all other matters of any responsibility, please refer to someone else.

Maybe it's just as strange to have a league in which some clubs are fully high level professional on full cap and and some clubs are semi-professional on just what they can afford.

A league where the difference can be a club spending like a Wigan or a Saints playing clubs with all their players on low level part time contracts.

Then the governing body deciding to apply different rules to different clubs. "those are the rules get on with it" isn't the answer at all. Toulouse are guests only, and maybe it's them that should have stepped down for the season, whilst there is a healthy environment for all visiting teams to enjoy......

French RL admirably carries on as normal in the French Elite league, only problem is their league has lost their two biggest clubs from that league in recent years.

You seem to think "French RL" is a load of English and antipodean players galloping around M62 land

It's just not is it?

Be sensible about this. These clubs are guests so the sensible thing if anything is for them to stand down not the English clubs.....

How long are these two French clubs allowed to be guests in this country?
