Leigh play Toulouse away just before us. Without giving any reason their game has been moved from Toulouse to Albi. Some fifty miles or so away from Toulouse.
There are a couple of weeks between their fixture and ours, but it is making me think I should hold back from arranging anything for a while, in case we get our game moved as well.

Did Toulouse use albi last year? Can’t recall they did move at least one game didn’t they? Where was our game played?
Bosty am with you on delaying booking anything, it’s a little frustrating! Toronto is presenting the same problem, at least with Toulouse it’s just where you book accom, for Canada booking flights has to be a risk at the mo.
Anyone got any links or info on Toulouse? They are not competing in the CC, now home game moving, is it all innocent or are their storm clouds building over their?

Last season we played them at Stade Ernest Argeles, their home ground.
I flew in on Saturday and out again on Sunday which was fine. In fact I only booked it the week before the game.
This year I was looking at spending a few days there which is why I was looking now, I have put things on hold for the time being.

At one point last year it was suggested our game would be moved to this ground. If i'm not mistaken there are regular trains between the towns.
Mac out!

Cheers chaps was not sure. Was there not a discussion about it possibly moving last year?
My intention is to go this year but will have my own transport so only issue is where to stay to save the travel if they do move it.
Suppose the one thing for you bosty if you were aiming to spend a few days down in the area option of a hire car is there, more cost I know and certainly not ideal.
It would be a pain for those already booked.

We just want to spend some time in Toulouse, do not want through the agro of hiring a car. As far as traveling across by train it is ninety minutes each way. That is three hours out of ones day. Then the consideration that French public transport closes down quite early so you have to bear that in mind.The day becomes disjointed and it starts to lose its appeal.
With any luck they will leave our game alone.

I spent some time touring around SW France in the 90's and I can attest that the views from the train are stunning and the direct train takes just over an hour. Failing that, instead of hiring a car, you could hire a camper for 24 hrs if the game is moved and simply park up and camp the night.....it is a stunning part of France. The town of Gailac would be my choice of somewhere to stop for the night.
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Wakefield is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

If we are to play in Toulouse or Albi, does not really matter to me. I just want to know where we are playing before I book. I do not want to mess about travelling on the day.
Sure I agree, that it is a lovely part of the world, which is why I want to spend a bit of time there.
For me a nice leisurely day with a few drinks, nice food and spank Toulouse at Rugby. That's me sorted.
