Leigh left frustrated by Toulouse fixture move

Leigh have expressed their concern after their away game against Toulouse was moved 75km to Albi.

The Championship game will now take place at 15:30 CET on Saturday June 16 at the Stadium Municipal d’Albi.

A Leigh Centurions spokesman said: “We were concerned about the travel arrangements for our supporters, particularly those who have already booked flights and accommodation in Toulouse.

“But in accordance with RFL rules, we had no valid reason to object.

“Toulouse have informed us that trains operate from Toulouse to Albi from 7.30am to 10.30pm (last departure from Albi) and the price is around 20 Euros.

“We have asked Toulouse to consider how they can assist our fans with travel and/or consider this amendment when setting prices.”

Toulouse are currently renovating their stadium and currently split games between their home venue and Blagnac RUFC.
