    That game was 18 years ago - and I certainly would never describe the atmosphere there as a cauldron - more carnival like with food, drink, the band and so on. Minimes is no longer a viable option (and even back then it was not big enough for SL).  If not Ernest Wallon, it will be back to Blagnac I guess, which is probably the right size.

    TO will stay at Ernest wallon until they bild their own stadium with 8000 seats. That is what Olivier Dubois says.

    Which bit are you referring to here Pecetto? I obviously have no knowledge of whether there's any accuracy in the article in La Depeche but it certainly seemed to be being discussed with some intensity on the Toulouse forum which was where I first saw reference to the article...of course whether those guys know what they're talking about is another matter.

    No toulouse are not in financial difficultys. Their big partners and sponsors came to Help as usual. Some of the institutions money, is what every pro club ( rugby union, football, handball and rugby league) receive to Help after Covid. Thé board directors did the rest.

    As others have said, we have a few numpties at Fev, always have had going back to the 1970s at least, and so have quite a lot of RL clubs, most of the regular posters on the main Featherstone forum would condemn anyone who goes out looking for trouble and the club has put a lot of effort into trying to identify and ban culprits. Quite apart from the fact that it's the right thing to do, the club have had a couple of fines in recent years for fans' behaviour and are clearly desperate to avoid more of the same, so it's not any lack of motivation from the club, there have been regular postings on the website too about anti-social behaviour etc.

    I think though there is a sense that a small number of fans of one or two other clubs are gleeful rather than disappointed when these incidents occur and I think that annoys a lot of Fev fans. That's not to condone any incidents of bad behaviour, if people are found and proven to have behaved badly they should be banned and I'm sure the club will continue to do so, but to suggest that this is exclusively a Fev problem is a bit misleading, there are a a few clubs struggling with similar issues. For instance judged on their forum a lot of Hull KR fans seem very frustrated this year by the behaviour of a small proportion of people attending their games with bottle throwing, racist abuse etc being cited, I've seen Leigh fans complaining about the behaviour of a small number of their fans, there have been incidents at Wakefield/Castleford games, and there was an incident at the Barrow v Whitehaven game earlier this season that looked like something from the 1970s with multiple people brawling up and down the terraces. That's just off the top of my head.

    I know this sounds like whataboutery but just trying to keep things in context, I think security can be difficult to gauge in the Championship because most games the atmosphere is genteel, it's just the odd game where something suddenly erupts and usually involving a very small number of supporters. We tend to segregate home games against Halifax and Bradford because of previous animosity, for instance, but for most games against the likes of Batley, York, Keighley and most other teams we don't and I think supporters of those teams would be bemused by the reputation Post Office Road seems to have.

    I think the reason some Fev fans are defensive is not because they're in denial, we all know we have had problems at some games, but let's not tar everyone with the same brush, as many fans of Championship clubs will testify the average Fev fan will happily sit in the pub chatting away about the sport with fans of the opposing club, both home and away.

    Are you coming in toulouse for the match PH ?

    Sita is suspended. Ant Marion will probably also pick up a ban from the Barrow game but he is *possibly* injured as well.  Josh Ralph was a little more serious not just a cautionary measure. As there are nearly 5 weeks until the semi-final then i'm hoping that we get them back playing for then.  Maybe no Mathieu but I hope so, as he has experience of the play-offs and I'm sure (possibly) coming up against Johno, Killer, Gadwin and Chris in a final will be further motivation to get fit.

    Incidentally, OAB has made a remarkable recovery according to the medics. He could be on the pitch now, although with Zac playing so well at FB I doubt he will be risked until next year now.

    How do TO roll the dice now ? Play as good a team as possible to keep the win motivation going, or play the kids knowing that they won't get a chance to play if the full team is available in a few weeks time.  Mind you, if you play the kids, win the next 3 then why not stick with them!

    Biscarro also

    The problem is not so much RU but being a low value tenant. Reflects poorly on TO to be have been taken by surprise by this. It's all a bit London Broncos and, like the Broncos, I assume this means a potential home semi-final for TO won't be at 'home'.

    You assume wrong. Is that what you hope ?

    Apparently the match with Fev at home, won’t be played there because of the Union World Cup. Not great for fans who may have already booked to go. 

    The match will be played in an other stadium
