Toulouse have confirmed that their upcoming home game against Swinton on Saturday May 22 will now be played at Heywood Road.

Due to the coronavirus and quarantine restrictions impacting travelling clubs, Toulouse have been unable to play any games in France so far this season.

London, as a full-time club, were forced to forfeit their visit after refusing to travel, handing the French side a 24-0 win, before the game against Featherstone on May 1 was postponed.

Toulouse played a ‘home’ game against Widnes last weekend, also at Heywood Road, winning 70-0.

They will reserve home advantage against Swinton too, despite Heywood Road being the Lions’ home ground, meaning they will receive 90% of the revenue generated by Our League streaming on the day.

The reduced fixture list in 2021 means that Toulouse aren’t scheduled to play either Swinton or Widnes away.

They are away at Whitehaven this weekend, and are scheduled to host Newcastle on May 29.

Under the points percentage system in place this season, teams are required to play a minimum of 16 games to be eligible to participate in the play-offs.
