French sports TV don't rate Catalans and Toulouse enough to give them Millions of Francs, that's already been made clear..


English tv don't rate the entire the sport.
BBC only cover the Challenge Cup games.
Any information on the restructure plans?
We know how well the commercially brilliant elite managed the broadcast deal sooo much better than the RFL.
Will those clubs allowed to have elite academies form Super League - and nobody else?
That went well,then...
No reserves,but resilience,persistence and determination are omnipotent.

Their poor showing in 2009 that left them in a relegation position facing playing in the third tier of the English game taught them never to rely on French players ever again :lol: :lol: :lol:


It taught them you need deeper pockets..

Gausch has deep pockets but has at least been made to spend a big sum on a Catalans Academy to save his SL backside.......

Whilst Folau finds something else to do playing for Southport Tigers.......

Gausch sailed close to the wind with Folau but he's been put in his place and has had to re-open the French academy.....

Twenty odd years ago we decided to switch to Summer rugby and have teams in areas merged from one or two existing teams. At that stage we were the best game in town as there was nothing else to televise in Summer. Instead we let the Chairmen come up with a stupid licensing system that was never followed up. Now we are up against Rugby Union that has turned professional, football that seems to only have a 4 week off season (that is when there isn't a World Cup or Euros), cricket has 20-20 and 100 ball competition. Forget restructure. WE had our chance and we blew it.

Seems like their academy has ben granted a license too.
Their position appears stronger by the day. Are you still certain that this particular "guest club" is getting kicked out.
Also you suggest that Catalan have had their wings clipped over Folau and yet, their public position is that they are trying to force him to return.
So, in summary, it doesn't appear that the aim is an all English Super league and that Catalan and their academy are here to stay.
