An incredible performance for Toulouse rugby, but this time at XIII. With the Stade Toulousain in rugby union, Toulouse is decidedly since this evening the capital of the oval. In the final of its championship, the Championship, the TOXIII received at home at the Ernest-Wallon stadium the English of Featherstone Rovers.
A crushing victory 34 to 12!
So exit the second English division, direction the elite of rugby union.
After a great victory last Saturday, October 2, 51-12 against the Batley Bulldogs already at home, the TOXIII prepared for this historic deadline for the club. The players were able to count on the support of their training partners: the Stade Toulousain team.
Toulouse players have their place in this rugby elite since they have flown over this season, without taking a single defeat. A goal they have been pursuing for many years is therefore finally ticked off: to join the Catalans Dragons in the Super League. The Perpignan rugby players were so far the only French people involved in this premier competition, where they have just failed in the final.
A change of dimension
It is an entry into the big leagues that propels the club into another dimension. And in particular, confided the president of the club Bernard Sarrazin in recent days, with TV rights that could be around 1.5 million euros and inflate the club’s budget to 5 million euros. The entry into the Super League of TOXIII could therefore also attract new players.
