In 2018 we had a total of 16 members sign in France spread throughout three divisions, including 15 players and one coach. This brings our total number of members signings in France to date to 69. Some of them are new members to the website and some are previous members who have returned to play in France.

The following is an update of how the season has panned out heading into the playoffs while recognizing some of our members who are amongst league statistical leaders.
