Love for Toulouse
Toulouse coach Sylvain Houles is hoping visiting supporters from Super League clubs will enjoy the Toulouse Olympique match-day experience which he describes as “unique”.
He told Love Rugby League: “I cannot wait for Super League supporters to come and see what we have here in Toulouse. This stadium and this team is the perfect combination and I think many people will be surprised by the game-day experience at Stade Ernest Wallon.
“It’s the home of (French rugby union giants) Stade Toulousain, but it is also our home and on match-day our colours are all over the LED and tv-screens, it’s a brilliant place to play or watch Rugby League.
“You are so close to the pitch as supporters, you are almost part of the team and the playing surface is one of the best in the world.”
Great Britain, England and St Helens legend James Roby turns 36 today (November 22).
James Roby will be the third oldest player in Super League in 2022, behind Wigan’s Tommy Leuluai and Toulouse’s Harrison Hansen.
