I was gonna walk up on the day but the news around tickets running out has meant I've gone online and bought some, which I guess supports the move to a smaller ground to really drive demand.

I read on Super League website that capacity has been reduced to less than 7k?

If this is true, and I've no reason to doubt it, then someone should give the rfl a big on the back for their choice of venue. A full stadium must be a boost for the game.

If this game is close, then next week's game could sell out, too. Happy days.

The "Less than 1K ticlets left" quote came from Steve Macnamara on Blunderside tonight.

The key for the french team is lack of mistakes and taking chances created by bosc, duport needs to play true to his superleague form. I see a 32 - 12 win to the english france to be in game till 60 minute mark then get overun.

England are been given a 42 point head start (http://www.rlbet.co....rday-3-november), I can see it been closer than that this week at least.

France won at Headingley in 1990 Monsieur , also a win and adraw in the mid 80's...


Indeed, France 25 GB 18 in 1990. This was the last time France defeated any of the "big three" (though they did manage a 16-16 draw with New Zealand in Palmerston North, NZ, in 1995).

That's certainly worth a few bob, can't see the French overturning that.

And were applauded off the pitch by the South Stand, which doesn't happen very often to visiting teams!

Yeah I'd go with that. Shortest odds are for winning margin of 31-40, next at 41-50. Those high scores quoted were all I think mid season games. The two autumn ones were at Doncaster where they led at the break 12-6 and last year at Avignon. But yes they need to hold on to the ball a lot better than at Lens. Duports had an excellent season spoilt by his last three performance against Wigan,Leeds & Wales. Everybody will be nervous in Bar Felix on Place Carnot tomorrow. Allez le Treize!

Good to see Les Bleus lining up in, erm, blue. I really hope they can put in a big performance, even a win, and set up a big finale next week.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

I must have turned on the wrong game, since Dave Woods has referred to the team in blue as the 'Welsh' on two occasions already.

Too many errors from trying too hard. Tomkins probably over keen on his return and Hock probably trying to impress the Eels!

Need to stick to their structure.

Even though it's a few years since he played for Leeds, it seems Ellis still qualifies for the 'he's not that kind of player' immunity enjoyed by Kylie Leuluai among others.
