The solution is for another time, if there indeed is one. For now let's celebrate what French RL is. I have allocated points for where a team finishes in the Elite One League, then the Finals and also the Lord Derby Cup.

For the 2016/17 season, another team was introduced to the Elite One league, RC St Gaudens XIII. That brought the number up to ten. Three teams were above the others. FC Lézignan, Limoux Grizzlies and AS Carcassonne. Each one won something, the Elite 1, the Finals and LD Cup in that order. FC Lézignan pipped the others by virtue of being in both finals, as well as winning the league. AS Carcassonne's relatively poor Elite 1 finish cost it.
St Estève - XIII Catalan is a support club for the European division one (Super League) club Les Catalan Dragons. The Toulouse Broncos is likewise a support club of the UK division two (Championship) side Toulouse Olympique. For 2018, the season switches to summer as is the case with the UK which brings the two nations into sync.
