LIVESTREAM France: Toulouse Ours @ Grizzlys Catalans, March 3, 13:00 CET (1 pm, 7 am ET)

The Toulouse Ours (0-2) head south to Saint-Laurent-de-la-Salanque to face the Grizzlys Catalans as the third week of play in the French D1 Elite league winds up Sunday, March 3.

The Grizzlys opened their season with a 21-19 win over the Nice Dauphins while Toulouse is coming off back to back losses to the Aix Argonautes, 21-13, and the Marseilles Blue Stars, 22-7.

These two teams played each other twice in 2023 tying the first game 21-21. The Ours came out on top in the second 35-34.

Catalans Spanish head coach Oscar Calatayud is no stranger to success. As the head coach of the Badalona Dracs in Spain’s top league he led his team to six Spanish championships and is hoping he can carry over that success to the Grizzlys.

Calatayud’s offense features American quarterback Jaylen Tregle (Southwestern Oregon NAIA) and talented French receiver Idriss Ramky and Brazilian tight end Morilo Soares. Tregle threw two touchdown passes in the win over Nice. Defensively the Grizzlys rely on veteran players,  Terence Correia, Theo Duru, and Loris Savalle. Defensive back Ozny Adramann is another key and he proved it in the victory recording the season’s first pick six.

The Ours are led by head coach Stephane Murat for the 2024 season. On offense, he relies on quarterback Norman Douglas Jr (Jackson State) who was a late arrival. Defensively, they have national team linebacker Dorian Longhini.
