Why not ready? You surely don't expect them to join Super League with exactly the same team that they have now!

Terrific Toulouse could easily retain their current outside backs and halves, but need another prop, two second rowers and a lock from NRL ranks, in order to be placed in the top 8 of Super League alongside Catalans.


Not ready to compete with the bottom 4 of SL and their ground would need expanding (or maybe they would Share with Toulouse RU ??), with capacity of around 4k, it doesnt seem big enough and there is little room to add new stands etc, with the open air pool at one end and about 10ft of space behind the sticks at the other and access for traffic was awful, with small winding streets.

Also, speaking to the locals, they seemed to think that Catalan are not overjoyed at the prospect of Tolouse competing with them for @local@ players etc.

A great day out though and very welcoming.

£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 Widnes 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:

Terrible Toulouse were lucky to get a Point from their home game with Laughable London....having dropped 5 Points at Home to Luckless Leigh, Limp London and twisted Toronto, they find themselves with a must win scenario v Have-a-Go Halifax at the Shay or the prospect of being overtaken in the race for the top 2 spots. Lolly Laden London are the key to the finishing positions.....but trifling Toulouse will loose 6 from 7 if they scrape into the 8....losing to Fev and Batley shows how poor they actually are away from home.


Remind me how Toulouse got on in London?

They won......as they did in Blackpool......But loke Toronto, Fev lost in the capital and Fax are on their way down now....London have only dropped points against fellow contenders, Toulouse have lost to part-timers when on the road.....

Don’t worry about the facts or anything will you. Fax have actually gone upwards, not downwards. London away, Toulouse and Rochdale at home, ( fax have won almost all home games at home ).

Fax will finish top 4 along with Toronto. I see Fev getting pipped by Leigh and Toulouse sneaking in.

There is no recorded evidence of it, I am sure of that.
Toulouse for Championship in 2017, Super League in 2019!

Avignon for Championship in 2020, Super League in 2021!

Technically we beat London at Keighley a few seasons back in what was a home game. So I guess we won away while also been at home. :wink:
