French footy looking better than ever
Authored by: Wesley Hull on Thursday, February 28 2013 @ 02:57 pm ACDT

Looking at French Aussie Rules from a distance has been exciting. From a non-political view (ie: spectator only) it is so good to see 7 teams on the roster. Even though Perpignon have not been involved this season, they are still part of the image of the French scene. I have to admit also that of the 7 clubs, Perpignon, Strasbourg, Aix-Marseille, Montpellier and Bordeaux have all accepted our own club's invitations to be a brother club. That is 5 out of 7 clubs in one country or 71% of French clubs linking with us, meaning that French clubs have our highest proportion of contacts of ANY country, which makes them special to us. It would be tremendous to see three new clubs, though Perpignon's struggles are a warning sign I guess that the success of any new club is not guaranteed. But I truly hope we see a day where Pau, Lyon (or Toulon) and St Nazaire can compete on a regular basis. The upcoming Euro Cup in Bordeaux will add to the following, and I believe that the Villers-Bretonneux ANZAC Day clash could gather more interest over time, further adding to the overall mosaic of French footy. I, for one, am highly ecxited about the possibilities of Australian Rules football in France.
