    We lost that game ourselves Sweaty, don't go putting the blame at anywhere other than bad game management and unhelpful substitution's when we were 14 points up.

    Ref pulled them back into the game and was embarrassed so gave Leigh a pen to save his harris, Leigh not making the 4 will have serious repercussions and this ref may have cost many a person their job.

    Agreed, though when they get annoying, the ignore button is your friend. I use it sparingly but have two Fev posters on it due to exactly this kind of behaviour! Daft thing is, we really could have done with you beating them as overhauling fax was our best chance of a top six finish - for me, don't count yourselves out, all teams have a dip in form. You will be up there come the business end of the season.

    Glad you recognise that EEP, but please explain to me why all those who hated Leigh, Rowley and his players who write on these pages, suddenly developed an affinity for Rowley and his players many of whom previously wore the Cherry and White of Leigh when they moved over to Toronto, I suspect that had it been another UK club they would have carried the same mantle of hatred.

    Not an option unfortunately, presumably as the different camera angles create more doubt if nothing else as has been the case in the past. The video ref yesterday could only be used to check the grounding which I think is the future but that’s another topic. We were sat in the corner so were initially reliant on the reaction of the crowd. Odd for so many people to think it’s gone over if that wasn’t the case, but similarly there was one in the first half then people thought had missed but was given. When it comes down to it, the touch judges are all very experienced in their field and you’ve got to go with their judgement, although I will say they weren’t helped in their job by what look to be some VERY short goalposts compared to other stadiums. Very entertaining game played with tremendous intensity and it looks like it’ll be a real cracker when the two teams meet in Toronto at the end of June. Could be a scenario where we’ll be going over there desperate for a win depending on how we fare away to Toulouse a fortnight earlier.

    Yes watching on Sky, and being someone who watches a lot of Rugby of both codes, Ive seen Kicks missed and given and vice versa , made but not given. (Pat Richards for Catalans put a conversion over in 2016, but it wasn't given in a home game, when it would have made in 34-34 with a few min left) For Me Reynolds got that, and surely it should have been TMO. I was gutted for Leigh. On the basis of this game, and seeing how SL is shaping up I can see these two doing well in the Middle 8s, and fighting to be 3-5 and either get the Magic 3rd place and up or end up in the MPG. I feel whoever of Cats/Hudds/Wakey/Hull KR ends up in the 8s is fine for top 2. Salford look MPG game material or worse. Widnes might find a little form in the 8s, and end up in the MPG or somehow scrape 3rd. Basically 6 strong teams in the 8s, the last 2 will take a few hammerings once the squad depth hits. Hope TO can make it for the 8s, along with London.

    Thankfully a voice of reason. Leigh will still be in the qualifiers, their only potential loss for the rest of the season is the Toronto away game. They may well even be be the first team to win in Toronto. In the qualifiers, it will be another nail-bitter between the teams that could go either way. A tough loss today for sure, but when the 8s start, everyone is on zero points.

    Does a win in the RL Challenge Cup really affect the SL table?

    Last time I checked 28 doesn't go into 19 so with Maudling,Akehurst,Hambley injured as per the website ,Leatherbarrow,Tansey,Rooke Ryan and Patrick may be just not selected. There doesn't have to be a story behind everytime a player isn't picked. Good luck today Town 30-22

    We lost. We've done ok til may. Now we've lost a few some from other clubs like the kick back they get from a wind up. I don't know why the human race has a small percentage that find a need to behave that way.... i just accept it happens. I've seen enough to suggest top four is too optimistic this season.

    There are loads of people who want Toronto to succeed. Every single rugby league fan should want Toronto to succeed, even if they don't like the guy who is coaching them right now. I think that desire to have a Canadian team do well and for an expansion gamble to pay off well makes people more forgiving of the way Rowley gets his team to play. It shouldn't though. The behaviour of the Toronto players in the Challenge Cup game, particularly their captain, was an absolute embarrassment that only shows the game in a negative light. Not that there aren't people who hate Toronto simply because they are an expansion club and want to blame them for the slow death of their own team despite the two things being entirely unrelated. However, Toronto should be called out when the behaviour of their players isn't acceptable, including those within the club who seem to encourage it (and seem to have encouraged such behaviour with their previous club too). At the moment it seems like they get a free pass because they're a bit of novelty.

    Leeds problems start with the coach. I dont expect us to win every game or compete for every trophy. But i expect us to look like a professional rugby league team, who actually train together through the week. Sick of hearing about injuries, cas had more important players than us missing last week but played to there clear game plan and beat us comfortably. Huddersfield played prcticaly an academy team against us over easter, a much weaker team than any we'v put out this season, they played to a gameplan which enabled them to be competitive and got a draw. Most coaches in superleague would love to field a team containing Ryan Hall, Tom Briscoe, Jack Walker, Richie Myler, Adam Cuthbertson, Stevie Ward, Brett Delaney, Brad Dwyer and Brett Ferres...All International or good quality superleague players in there careers, or have the likes of Mikolaj Oledzki and Cam Smith, two of the best young talents in the country to call on when needed. Listening to Mcdermott you'd think he was having to field an under 14's team who'd never seen a rugby ball before and its streaming down to the players, stevie ward said he was proud of the team last night!!! Absolute rubbish, a team containing the players listed should be ashamed of that performance last night, Catalan took there foot off the pedal for 15 mins otherwise it would of been a cricket score, soon as we got near them they upped there game again and blew us away. This is when a good coach should be earning his money, he shouldnt need all his superstars available to be competitive, a good gameplan with a bit of structure can enable players to succeed, even if they're not at the talent of the players theyr replacing. Our throw the ball about and hope for the best approach isnt giving these lads a chance, they look lost and clueless. On defence, he must be the only coach in the world who hasnt got some kind of handle on how to slow the oppositions play the ball down, the speed teams play it against us is ridiculous. I know we'v won trophies under him but we'v also played some of the most dreadful rugby i can remember under him.

    Great goal by Bale , horror show by the goalie , and usual disgraceful cheating by Ramos . I love the WC but that’s the kind of cheatfest it also is to often . Anything to win now

    It was an entertaining game for neutrals. The rivalry between these two sides really brings something to the games which is exciting to watch. In the back of my mind, though, is a worry that at some points things are going to go way too far and it will bring a lot of negative publicity to the sport. I don't mind rivalries. Arsenal v Man Utd in football was thrilling watching for years for similar reasons. However, the attitude from some Leigh fans towards anything linked with Toronto is pretty pathetic. Still, you expect those within the club to conduct themselves in a certain way. Paul Rowley at Leigh got his team to play like thugs while dominating the league because they had more funds to buy the best players. He's now at Toronto where he's bought the best players, can dominate the league and once again has his team playing like thugs. He's one big ego and absolutely no class. I'd like Toronto to be successful but hopefully without Rowley because at the moment the Wolfpack's behaviour on the field is one of the worst things about the game, just like Leigh when he was in charge.

    Against a confident and nearly fully fit Catalans, it was always going to be a hard task. Not sure if Ward is playing injured but he had a shocker. You only have to look at the rest of our pack in that game to see how we can get steamrolled at times. There’s been some poor signings in the past couple of years. Leeds need to replace Galloway ASAP. They’re in a hole but it can be turned around. Myler was the one player to standout and had a very good return to Perpignan

    We have some big games to come at home which will help our average: Donny, Oldham, Workington, Whitehaven, Newcastle and Hunslet. Asides from the Bulls and Keighley there has been very little by way of away support. All big marketable games that will provide a real contest rather than a one sided encounter where the outcome is in no doubt and it’s more a case of seeing how many we can score.

    I agree with sweaty for a neutral that game was handed to Toronto then a guilty pen at the end. On rowley he is a disgusting human being who wants expunging from our game. He works with clubs with money then try’s to make them thugs. He is limited and if he played as hard as his pathetic rant today he might have been a SL great. He needs ousting quickly he’s vermin and a parasite. I’m no leigh can either I’m just sick of his teams playing the same and today showed him and Toronto up again

    Somewhere in between I guess. Catalans are taking steps forward. Leeds have been rubbish for a couple of months. Although their injuries are certainly a mitigating factor.

    I also hear that most of the club chairmen don't rate him at all. No charisma, no energy, no ideas.

    Yeah he has changed nothing. I don't think I've really heard from him since his first couple of days when he constantly rambled on about his little black book and how him and his contacts were going to transform things. Well nothing has changed.

    Think they must have a recruiting agent in every Sydney police station.
