  1. Let’s hope French Rugby League can build on the incredible momentum of Toulouse and Catalans outstanding seasons.
  2. Sadiq Adebiyi was born in Lagos and is supposedly signing for Wakefield, not sure how official that one is. Should Levy Nzongou finally fulfil his potential then he may well end up back at a Superleague club. He was born in Brazzaville, Congo.
  3. Fages has long been rumoured and even quoted as going to Huddersfield but personally I have yet to see this confirmed, has anyone seen anything official?
  4. I have friends living in Toulouse and I can tell you there are some rough places. Not saying it’s all bad mate but it was an eye opener.
  5. Interesting question that needs asking. I imagine Ralph Rimmer has come up with a strategic overview vis a vis front facing projections and booked the Leigh Sports Village as back up.
  6. Hopoate will play centre, although could cover FB. Interesting call on Lomax, I can see this happening yet Woolf was very clear on Welsby at FB. *sorry typed all that without reading other responses.
  7. Brilliant try from Catalans. Really played the numbers. Tissues will be out in Wigan.
  8. Excellent first half, frenetic pace. Could go either way. Honestly feel that you have to take whatever points you can in a final. Grab 1 or 2 and then the tries can come later.
  9. Agree with that. Super smart player Tomkins. I hope he’s ok to carry on and this game carries on at this unbelievable pace.
  10. Wow! I have spent much time in France, particularly the Pyrenees, and have always searched out any Rugby League news. Normally it is the tiniest article buried away if anything. This is incredible! As always I want my team to win but just imagine the coverage if Catalans are victorious. A small part of me could cope with losing if this is what it means. Hoping for a classic that gets headlines for the right reasons regardless. Thanks for sharing. Vive le treize!
  11. Well until I realised it said former, even as a Saints fan I was wondering if it was Coote! Adam Fogarty?
  12. Totally agree. If my team weren’t still in the competition then I would be rooting for Catalans as I would have Salford a few years back. Obviously I, like all fans, want my own team to be crowned champions again but the sport is crying out for a new name in lights. I have good friends in Perpignan after some great visits over the years. Proper Rugby League area. Even the traditionalists should find reason to get behind them! If my team has the good fortune to make Old Trafford then I will of course be backing them all the way, I would just be less upset than normal if they lost. It’s some journey Catalans have been on, there are great tales in there if the press are informed and interested - successful expansion club, passionate fans, the young French lads, the stars from around the world who clearly love life there, James Maloney’s Grand Final record. I also really like Steve McNamara’s story. He’s took a lot of stick over the years but he is the only coach of a non English side to win the Challenge Cup and League Leaders shield and is now just 80 minutes away from adding a Grand Final to that. Win or lose I think people should be affording him a bit more respect now
  13. Outstanding season from Catalans whatever happens now. Great season from Hull KR too, they have been a pleasure to watch, Whether my team get to Old Trafford or not I am looking forward to seeing Mourgue there, he has the potential to do a Rob Burrow IMHO.
  14. Said at the time Hull KR should have took the 2, I admire their gung ho style at times but semi final football needs some composure. They have played panic rugby since opting to run it. If KR get to HT less than 12 down then they have a chance but they need to build sets. Enjoying the game and atmosphere!
  15. Totally agree with that sentiment, if my team weren’t involved in the other semi final then I’d want whoever wins to go on and win the final. Both teams have been a breath of fresh air this season and whatever happens tomorrow can be proud of brilliant campaigns
