Not sure if this has been posted yet, but I couldn't find a thread anywhere.

From loverugbyleague.com - "the Rugby Football League is close to securing an agreement with their French counterparts for an autumn international at Stade Gilbert Brutus on Saturday, October 23"

Looks to be a goer. A company called Catalan Sports Tours has announced a very nice looking 3 night tour From either Liverpool or Manchester to Barcelona then a transfer to Perpignan. Quality accommodation, wine tours, Buffet brekkies etc.

Also it looks like it'll be a double header with both women's and men's Tests..

Looked at the guide, they are showing the womens game as well.

SCRUM-FREE TEST

Fox Sports has secured the rights to Saturday night’s France-England Test, which holds particular interest because it will be played without scrums.

Eliminating scrums has been an argument around the NRL for years, with some pushing for it and others in fierce resistance.

The Test, in Perpignan, gives supporters a chance to witness the scrum-less game at high level. Roosters coach Trent Robinson will be one interested observer, with Robinson a director of the French rugby league. Coverage starts 9.55pm Saturday.

Men’s game starts about 12:30am (11:30pm QLD) as best I can tell. Definitely staying up for this, first top tier international for 2 years.

Solid game for England, good opportunity to blood some new players. France started very slowly but got into the game and had some really good spells. Thought the ref was a bit lenient with englands offside which didn’t help the French, Nice to be able to watch international RL!!

for those unaware, the ref was Benjamin Casty, brother of Remi Casty playing his last game.

Agree with you there, thought he was reluctant to blow a penalty.

Maybe a case for neutral refs.
