Catalans just won the Challenge Cup, beating the mighty St. Helens and Warrington in the process.

When was the last time Leigh achieved any of that?
Toulouse for Championship in 2017, Super League in 2021!

Avignon for Championship in 2021, Super League in 2022!

And a great achievement for them. Let's see how many trophies they have won, when they have been around 100+ years! :wink:

I won't see that and neither will you.

What is more important is that after only 12 years in existence in Super League Catalans have been to Wembley twice and won the Cup once.

I look forward in my lifetime to seeing Toulouse emulate Catalans.

Bad start to the season syndrome...? They first entered the cc in 2002......and joined SL 13 years ago...... And that's not witholding their pre-merger existence..... :CRAZY:
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 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:

There'll be a ban for that bite, I suspect.

At the moment it's terrible Toulouse (with the ball) only losing 12-8 though
