The way Toulouse have approached their first SL season reminds me of London and altho ultimately they fell just short, they sure caused a few shocks...in any other season they'd have stayed up

They did, and I know they beat us fair and square, but they were also helped by some teams that they played at the time....
No names - Saints...... (cough)

Glad you're not the coach then. It's up to you but what's the point in starting the season with that mentality? Honestly, if I felt like that I wouldn't bother.

Finishing 11th would be ok JUST but to snap hands-off for it before a ball is even kicked, sorry but I find that an atrocious attitude but then you probably think I'm stupid for being generally optimistic at the start of every season.


There is nothing wrong with being optimistic and I think with a good run of injuries and a bit of luck here and there we could make the top 6 but on the flip side with bad injures and some bad luck we will be struggling near the bottom.

I know my opinion on finishing 11th will not be popular but I wouldn't be surprised if we had the 11th or 12th highest Wage Bill so it may well be realistic?

I agree that we should not be aiming to finish 11th and I think the players and coach will be targeting the playoffs.

That would be like Saints helping Wigan ??

Catalan dont want to share the French player pool but, they will be ok to let Toulouse have any "cast offs".

We have to be "aiming" at top 6, probably knowing that 8/9th will be ok.

New vaccine rules in France May help both Toulouse and Catalan now. Hope we don’t have any unvaccinated players as they won’t be allowed over.

That will be a huge boost to Catalans and Tolouse throughout the season. That will create some serious problems in terms of a level playing field. Not their fault of course but they stand to benefit on the playing field.
Top six 2005 - Trinity.

That’s providing all their players are vaccinated as well. If not they could only be at full strength for away games.
