Albi to defy Dragons to earn place in final

ALBI Tigers face the enormous task of bouncing back from a 60-6 defeat by St Esteve Catalans Dragons after drawing the Perpignan-based side in their Lord Derby Cup semi-final.

The Tigers meet St Esteve at Toulouse on March 19, a fortnight after a red-hot Dragons side ran in 12 tries to one to register their first win in Pool A.

Carcassonne’s Stade Albert Domec will play host to local rivals Limoux Grizzlies and Lezignan Sangliers on March 20 in the other semi-final.

Both winners will progress through to the Lord Derby Cup final on April 16-17.

The Dragons host Avignon in this weekend’s FFR XIII Elite 1 Pool B match while Carcassonne will travel to Limoux in the Pool A Round 3 match.

Both matches kick-off at 3pm on Sunday, March 13.
