    Fev/Toronto was exciting and both sides had their chances. Toronto took more of theirs, but that was good to watch, despite the salty language.

    Sorry about that. A red mist descended after that dodgy short kick off call from Mr Hewer. (I was sat on the 10m line).

    It's entirely possible that I lost the plot and shouted several words that my mother would disown me for. Repeatedly, right in his ear hole.

    We are due to visit Toulouse at the end of this month to watch York City Knights and wondered if any Rovers fans found a good bar to meet up in for after the game? Cheers

    As others have said, Pub O'Clock and Melting Pot are popular with Brits.  Had a good crack last year with some visiting RUFC types from Bristol and this year with some ex-pat Airbus employees.

    Le Frog et Rosbif is a nice pub too, especially for food and is a bit less rowdy than these two.

    Pub o clock and the Melting pot are over the road from one another, both rugby haunts both near the Victor Hugo hotel in Toulouse. Near the stadium there are also two pubs over the road from each other, but the tram back is a bit of a walk and the local bus service apparently stops after a certain time, so we had to get a taxi which cost €30

    Last year the bus service was OK.  With my limited GCSE (D Grade) french, I think one of the locals at the bus stop this year told me that it was suspended early because of the Gillets Jaunes.

    I'd rather have Gareth "fat boy' Hewer rather than Jack 'punish the little team" Smith... I'd be happy for him to never ref a Rams game again after his winning performance in a Sheffield shirt a couple of weeks back.. 

    Tough choice that one.  Hewer sucks the life out of a game, I can't remember enjoying a game he was reffing.

    Smith on the other hand doesn't seem particularly well up on the knock on rule, especially when awarding tries.

    Cheers, we would prefer less travelling so are waiting a quote for Toronto only. Not a massive fan of flying, so not too keen on the extra NY flights.

    Me neither.  We're just knocking New York off the bucket list while we're over there. (It's only an hour and 1/2 from Toronto).  I don't normally go any further than The Canaries.

  7. To be fair to Oxy, Halifax do play an astonishingly boring and niggly kind of Rugby.

    It's worked reasonably well for them recently in terms of results, but their crowds are flatlining at best. They seem to be unable to build on the success they've had and their recruitment this year smacks of a club trying to be mediocre. 

    Personally (as a Fev fan), I think Marshall and the BOD are doing a great job.  Long may it continue ?
