Note:l This Match was played in Heavy Snow Conditions (See Picture). It was the return of a challenge match between the champions of England and France, with Wigan having visited Carcassonne in November 1946. My Grandad attended this game and remember that Carcassone came with a joke mentality and tried to play with mini rugby balls. He also noted the french full back Puig Aubert who was smoking a fag with one hand, whilst catching the ball with the other. He was quite famous for this, hence his nickname "Pipette"
