The Toulouse Olympique fights it out this Thursday evening with Hull KR (9 p.m. on beIN Sports 1. Two teams which suffered two crushing defeats during the previous day. Who will have recovered best?
After the “Airlies birds” last Saturday at Ernest-Wallon, Toulouse Olympique is facing the other club from Hull, the Rovers, on the lawn of Craven Park. A formation that Toulouse copiously dominated on July 2 (28-6, the biggest Toulouse victory to date).

At the moment the “Rovers”, they are not really healthy, like their Toulouse guests. Last Thursday in Wigan, they were copiously dominated (46-4), in a match at the reserved course the Wiganers found their way to the in-goal of Hull nine times. A crushing defeat which has the effect of demoting them to ninth place. For their part, Friday evening, the Toulouse did not really do better, and not at all a good deal by losing to the Airlies Birds 30-6. And twenty-four hours later, Wakefield’s victory at Castleford (32-6) condemned the Olympians to last place.
Return of Daniel Alvaro
Tonight, therefore, it is two large sick bodies that confront each other. For this redemption match, Toulouse Olympique cannot afford to deliver a copy similar to the one returned on the lawn of Hull FC. From an accounting point of view, victory is imperative to come back up to Wakefield, who is now in control of his destiny with a two-point lead in the standings. A crucial meeting where winger Ilias Bergal and second line Jo Paulo will be absent. The Catalan winger is nursing a floating rib, the former Saints player is suffering from a torn hamstring.

In the radius of the returns, the management appreciates the requalification of the pillar Daniel Alvaro (suspended against Hull FC) and who was sorely missed on Saturday evening. Now, gentlemen of Toulouse, reconnect with the game proposed against Leeds (20-6 victory), your future in the Super League depends on it. Sunday in Wakefield, gentlemen of the Catalan Dragons, think of your friends from Toulouse, a victory at Support Stadium would keep the hopes of maintaining the Olympians alive.
