    yla Hepi has signed a new deal with Toulouse for the 2019 season.

    The 25-year-old front-rower was the second most used player by Sylvain Houles in 2018, playing 29 games in the Championship season, only being behind France international Mark Kheirallah.

    Hepi had a stint in Super League with Hull Kingston Rovers between 2011 and 2013, while enjoying a loan spell at Gloucestershire All Golds in that time.

    He moved to Whitehaven in 2015, where he impressed and caught the eye of Toulouse, where he has gone on to make 81 appearances for the French club.

    On his new deal, Hepi said: “I am very excited about the season ahead.

    “This is a pivotal year for Toulouse and for French rugby league in general.

    “From a personal standpoint, I am eager to get into the preparation and regain the ground to work hard for the team.

    “It’s very nice to be in a group focused on its target and pushing us in the same direction to reach it.”

    Olympique chairman Bernard Sarrazain commented: “Tyla is such an effective player.

    “I prefer to have him with us – 100% – rather than against us.”

    Typical France might want to keep that record going.

    Disappointed in a way that Bergal and Dezaria couldnt continue with an English team. Excited to see how Springer goes for Toronto though.

    Yes they have, would've prefer more spread through English clubs. It really doesn't matter anyway.

    Like the Bears new logo but what's up with Caracassonne?

    T
    he French Rugby League Federation have called off all fixtures on the same day of Catalans’ clash with Wigan in Barcelona.

    Nou Camp will host a rugby league match for the very first time on Saturday, May 18 (3:30pm UK time).

    Challenge Cup holders Catalans were formally invited to play at the Camp Nou by Barcelona and they will face current Super League champions Wigan.

    The FRLF have postponed every single one of the games, so supporters and players will be able to attend the historic fixture between Catalans and Wigan at FC Barcelona’s Nou Camp.

    FC Barcelona President Josep Maria Bartomeu: “Barça are very pleased to host this Super League game between the reigning champions of the two biggest rugby league competitions in Europe.

    “This will be a grand game between two great teams, and I’m sure there will be a party atmosphere at the Camp Nou.

    “I encourage the Dragons supporters to treat our stadium like their home and for Wigan and Barça fans to also share the experience of seeing rugby league played at the Camp Nou.

    “Two seasons ago, our stadium hosted the final of French rugby union’s Top 14 between Toulon and Racing 92 and it was watched by 99,000 people. It was an amazing atmosphere that we hope to see repeated on May 18.

    Former Widnes Vikings winger Patrick Ah Van has joined French side Villeghailhenc-Aragon XIII for the 2019 season, Love Rugby League understands.

    The 30-year-old was released by the Vikings following their relegation from Super League at the end of last season after spending seven seasons at the club, scoring 91 tries in 118 games.

    Villeghailhenc-Aragon XIII play in France’s Elite Two Championship and act as a feeder team for AS Carcassonne, who play in the Elite One Championship. Ah Van will join Vinnie Anderson and Louis Anderson at the club next year.

    When the Kangaroos used to do full tours, the French leg usually had a match with the President's XIII.

    Happy to be corrected, but I thought it was the Federation President's XIII...??
