France Elite Teams By Season : 2011-12

For this season, Toulouse Olympique returned from playing in the UK, and Racing Club Lescure-Arthès XIII was promoted from the lower division. Racing Club Saint-Gaudens XIII had been demoted as was Racing Club de Carpentras XIII et du Comtat (what a name).

The Elite One: SM Pia XIII won the title (44 points) from AS Carcassonne and SO Avignon (both with 44 points). FC Lézignan and Toulouse O came just behind them (42 points).

Finals: In one semi final Pia XIII defeated FC Lézignan 28-20 while in the other game, AS Carcassonne pipped SO Avignon 31-30. AS Carcassonne then went on to win the grand final 26-20 over Pia.

Lord Derby Cup: In the Demi-finales, XIII Limoux Grizzilies could not get past AS Carcassonne, going down 22 - 36. Pia proved too strong for Lézignan in a 38 - 6 victory. The cup final was a close affair, with Carcassonne prevailing over Pia 14 - 12.

In summary, AS Carcassonne took out both finals to be the most successful side. Pia won the Elite 1 league but lost both finals so a seaon of close but not close enough. Lézignan was well back but third in the league and two semi final exits was a competitive showing.
