    Opening round results....

    ELITE 1
    St-Esteve 26-18 Albi XIII
    Lezignan 40-4 Toulouse Broncos
    Carcassonne 40-8 Palau XIII
    S.O Avignon 16-20 Limoux

    ELITE 2
    VARL XIII 34-18 Baho XIII
    St Gaudens 38-10 La Reole
    Lescure-Arthes 40-20 Lyon
    Carpentras 26-4 Montpellier

    Great to see newcomers to Elite 1, Albi, being competitive against one of the stronger sides!

    Also in Elite 2 VARL (Villegailhenc-Aragon)! These two neighbouring towns have a combined population of under 2000! Great to see them get off to such a start with a comfortable win against Baho!

    There are 9 teams in each! In Elite 1, Villeneuve had the bye this week, while in Elite 2 it was Villefranche.

    Probably on each club's website. Are you looking for a particular player?

    True. it is a sad indictment on the game, but unfortunately the volunteers needed to do that sort of thing just aren't there and those that give their time to the game are getting older and older without many willing to put their hand up to replace them. It doesn't bode well for the future.

    Albi's impressive start to Elite 1 continues, with a 46-10 win over Villeneuve today!

    I think quite often teams (in both Elite 1 and 2) will do it individually. But it's all a bit disorganised in France, you really have to go searching for it sometimes.

    He'll join a union side (Leucate XV, fourth division) to play and they provide him a good job...

    This game kicks off in just over 4 1/2 hours from now if anyone needs a footy fix.

    Anyway, click on the link and it has a countdown, hopefully set to each region :D

    Despite the lack of success at the top level, there is a good crop of young players coming through in French RL at the moment.
