    No idea. Isn't Pia a small town? Maybe that's why? The French situation really stumps me.

    Yes. Very small around 8,000 inhabitants. Just down the road from Perpignan I believe also.

    WRITTEN BY NICOLASDECEMBER 13, 2019


    Bad news for fans of XIII in France, the scheduled meeting on viàOccitanie between Villeneuve and Lézignan is postponed.


    Due to bad weather and a municipal decree, the meeting must be postponed to a later date.

    All the the job done by the media to ignore it, the blackout put on RL for many years has made this sport come out of the public’s subconscious.

    Some of us will tell me how easy it is to blame others, I agree that we have made a lot of mistakes (in France and international), but I will say that all sports have experienced problems and often more serious than ours and they were never buried like us.

    That's why it will be hard to reborn and succeed, RL is out of the subconcious of people in France, he does not exist anymore.

    The salary of an average qld cup player in France is around $ 2300 after taxes per month with a car and a home often shared between Australian players (but not in Lézignan), round-trip flights, health insurance, sports Hall. For a player of Simona's level. the salary is probably higher than that which a qld cup club could offer him. lezignan's budget is undoubtedly the highest in France ($ 1,600,000aud)
