France Elite Teams By Season : 2014-15

There were only eight teams in the Elite One for this season, not many. Was the reason to maintain a higher standard of play and other sides weren't deemed good enough? I can only assume so. Those same teams dominated in the cup competition so there were but nine sides that feature on the list below.

The Elite One: AS Carcassone won the league by a whisker from Toulouse Olympique, with FC Lézignan third.

Finals: Four additional sides joined for this series. The semi-finalists were AS Carcassonne (who defeated St Estève - XIII Catalan 44-6) and Toulouse Olympique (narrowly overcoming FC Lézignan 21-20). In the Final Toulouse Olympique triumphed 20-12 over AS Carcassonne.

Lord Derby Cup: In the first Semi final, FC Lézignan accounted for AS Carcassonne with a gritty 8-4 win. The second pitted St Estève - XIII Catalan against Sporting Olympique Avignon. The former prevailed in a high scoring gane 54-20. The closely fought final saw FC Lézignan come out on top 27-25 against St Estève - XIII Catalan.

In summary, FC Lézignan were the top side along with AS Carcassonne who both scored 48 points. Toulouse Olympique on 44 and St Estève - XIII Catalan (42) weren't far behind.
