Once Toulouse Olympique is promoted to Super League, one can expect their attendances to skyrocket to a minimum of 6,000, and possibly as high as 10,000. We saw this skyrocketing attendance for the Catalans Dragons, once the club was promoted to Super League.



The requirement of any new team from abroad into Superleague was never attendances.

It was and remains develop SL players and bring in local TV money, That's exactly what Superleague asked of Toulouse when they re-entered the game here with a plan for SL.

It was what was expected of Toronto and it was what Perez promised on behalf of TWP as well.

Catalans attendances are irrelevent, they were supposed to bring in French TV money and nurture the best French players to create a competetive French International side.

All three clubs are sadly - yes sadly - complete and utter failures who cannot be allowed to replace clubs in Superleague who do develop quality pro-players and do get a TV deal.

This is all very simple stuff to understand if people have the goodwill and mental capacity to understand and accept.

All three clubs are total failures failures on the criteria for success - New players and TV money - and would destroy Superleague if they were all allowed in in 2022..........
