Yes, interesting comparisons...

The Pro D2 league has 16 teams. We (Jersey) played against Breton side Vannes in pre-season, they were a powerful and efficient side. It ended 38-14, although it was their final pre-season outing and our first (with a much-changed & therefore undercooked squad) due to the fact that their season KOs in mid-Aug. They finished 10th this season and will come to us this July for a return match...

There certainly seemed to be more money at that level, partly due to the crowds - Vannes had 9,000 for their final home game!
