Bosc goalkicking did not help cause 2 for 5, 5 tries to 4 you should not lose.

Mon ami, vous avez raison sur tout sauf cette partie-ci - on ne peut pas etre off-side derriere sa propre ligne d'essai. Cependant, c'etait un en-avant donc l'essai n'etait quand meme pas valable.

Pour le reste, 100% d'accord - il y avait quelque chose de sinistre dans la performance des arbitres hier.

I might be being a bit naive but I thought it was more down to sheer incompetence rather than anything sinister.

"Sinistre" meaning disasterous in this context maybe ? In which case the wording is very apt - the officiating was shameful at times, something which was duly noted by Mr Rimmer hopefully

Yeah you should not, but it is funny when it happens twice in the same weekend! ;)  :haha:

I think Browny was actually suggesting it was a bit dubious to say the least but I'm sure he'll clarify. Shameful is an appropriate way of describing it.

I finally rolled in at midnight after a highly successful and enjoyable weekend in Toulouse.

 

Firstly, my apologies to Robins up North, I couldn't find a programme seller in our stand anywhere. I will however see if I can get someone to part with one once they've read it.

 

We spend most of our time drinking in a pub called 'The Melting Pot' and flitting between a few takeaways - which is essential considering the alcohol consumption on these jaunts.

 

I met up with a gent called Andy Moore, a Hull lad who is exiled in Southampton. He is the PR man for their local RL club, the Spitfires.

 

Old Frightful will be happy to learn that I ensured Gwilym Lloyd returned safe and well to his hotel after a couple of beers with us. There was some sort of street festival going on but by the time it kicked off I'd had zero sleep and wandered back to the hotel.

 

On the game day I treated myself to a Espresso shot, which really did the trick, but had to put up with the abomination that is Carlsberg at the ground - truly horrible stuff.

 

I'm extremely happy to get the win, albeit maybe a bit lucky to say so. There were some strange calls made, one or two in Rovers' favour that I didn't quite understand but I'll take them. The crowd was fantastic, there were plenty of locals there, especially school children, and Catalans brought about 15 coach loads up. It is clear that a French/Catalan rivalry can grow if Toulouse make Super League in 2015 - Toulouse had a 'We're coming in 2015' banner showing that want in!

 

All in all an excellent experience in a new city watching the greatest game of all.
