Nothing wrong with that tackle i didnt think. Good hard hit, ref got conned by the reaction and a bit of handbags means we have 12 each the pitch.

It's the council who look after that kind of thing rather than the club, but I would have guessed around the 7500 - 8000 mark.

Toronto win with a try when the ball wasn’t grounded. 

RFL conspiracy.

Dewsbury absolutely robbed there. Had a try chalked off early in the game that should have stood, then Toronto awarded a try that was clearly held up. Plus Lussick with a shoulder charge to the head that wasn’t even penalised.

Toronto won because Dewsbury threw it away as soon as they got put under pressure. Their coaches will be absolutely fuming, game plan was working brilliantly, carefully and diligently building a lead and performance and Toronto have a bit of a spell and all of a sudden Dewsbury have 11 players on the pitch.

Annakin not only stupid for spitting (which is obviously stupid and will see a big ban) but you are 5 points down, 5 mins to go and you are in the opponents redzone with tackles in the bag, why are even squaring up to defenders and getting in the defensive line. You're begging to get the officials involved. Get back in position and try and contribute to getting over the line

Definitely not a try but those are the breaks when there is no VR.

Wolfpack are playing without much discipline; look too much like the teams of previous years and not enough like the more disciplined team of this year.

Ridiculous decision. His hand just landed on the ball. He had no idea where the ball actually was and no way did he put any downward pressure on it. He could just have likely hit the ball with his head.

Crowd at Widnes given as 5782 - have to say I would have guessed a couple of thousand more than that - two packed stands.

South Stand was nowhere near full. Probably about 50%. North Stand (4,000 seats) was sold out but they’re not allowed to sell them all for safety reasons as its unallocated seating. Couple of hundred from Fev, 5,800 will be about right.

York won again - flying a bit under the radar in the Championship but acquitting themselves well (as a few of us on here predicted... ;) )

Wonder how much the fact he's not a Dewsbury player made him put the big I am before his team?  Pathetic, whatever the reason.

The York bandwagon rolls on, they’re going to make Leicester City’s Premier League title win look like nothing more than a slight shock!

Was the Dewsbury first try grounded properly? Couldn’t tell...

It was not so it evens out.

And the supposed second try for Dewsbury in the first half was not a try, either.

Neither team can blame the ref in this game, IMO.

Good defence from Dewsbury. Their hard work deserved something out of the game. Thought the conditions made for an interesting game. Toronto seem to have problems when they play on heavy pitches, remember Barrow last season? Were Dewsbury right kicking all those penalties, should they have risk going for a try or two or was the Toronto defence too strong? Overall an enjoyable game.

Was at the Dewsbury game, so didn't know why he was sent off. Stupid thing to do but lengthy ban really? A lot less dangerous than some of Toronto's headshots.

Dreadful weather at Odsal, but quite an absorbing game to watch. Toulouse came to do a job and did it to the letter. They kicked the Bulls back into their own twenty all game and ran better lines in attack. The Bulls huffed and puffed but lacked a coordinated game plan ... no-one taking charge of the tactics and no offload game up  front. Half a dozen individuals had good games but we need better support play.

No complaints from me... or I suspect, from the majority of Bulls fans.

Not sure what higson was whinging about there

Given his record of high tackles, bit ironic he whined every time he was tackled.

If it was spitting I think that's normally 6 games isn't it?
