Rugby League: Resumption in Elite 1 on Saturday September 21, 2024

The 2024-2025 Rugby League season in Elite 1 will begin on the weekend of September 21 and 22, 2024 and will go until the final on May 30 or June 1, 2025. The Coupe de France final is scheduled for the 3 or May 4, 2025.

The FFR XIII has not yet formalized its calendar (22 days), with now 11 clubs. Remember that Villefranche XIII Aveyron, French Elite 2 champion, joins Elite 1. There will therefore be one exempt club each day.

The Pia XIII Baroudeur club, which reached the semi-finals for its second season in Elite 1, is working on its recruitment, but above all it is trying to consolidate its bases. Bruno Jocaveil should join Jean-Bruno Balent as president of the club after the club’s General Assembly (early July), which business leaders such as Jean-Sébastien Gonzalez and Manu Romero have decided to join. “We have a long-term project, we want to develop our rugby school and that requires an increase in the budget.”specifies Jean-Bruno Balent who aims to move from “300,000 to 400,000 euros next season”. On the management side, Thomas Valette and Andrew Bentley have been confirmed in their positions as coaches. They will be joined by William Pailles whose exact position has not been defined. Arthur Bidaut is back at the club, but not as a player, he who will be the link between the U19s and the U23s.

Pia XIII Baroudeur is taking advantage of this month of June to make a series of extensions (Arnaud Bartès, Nabil Roumli and Mathias Marty), increasing the number of appointments in terms of recruitment. According to our information, the Baroudeurs aim to sign the captain of St-Estève/XIII Catalan, Corentin Le Cam and his friend, winger Romain Franco who is under contract with the Wakefield club in the Championship until November 30. Thibaud Margalet would not be against a return to Elite 1 on Pia’s side, even if the Dracs reserve is also on board. Things are accelerating in Elite 1 and the game of musical chairs has only just begun.
