  1. I'm digging the kids' old popcorn maker out of the loft and ordering a big sack of popping corn on the off chance Fev do win...
  2. And you could also add Tony Smith's own club at the time Huddersfield who didn't improve until p&r was reintroduced
  3. It's all about consistency. Not finished outside the Top 5 since 2009 (6th). League positions 2010 1st, 2011 1st, 2012 1st, 2013 1st, 2014 2nd, 2015 5th, 2016 4th, 2017 4th, 2018 5th, 2019 5th, 2021 2nd
  4. Sky are showing the game, presumably taking the feed from BEIN and adding their own commentary
  5. Whilst I'd guess everyone on here would like to see that (pipe) dream come true, it just isn't going to happen.
  6. In 2010 we played 'fax 3 times before the GF winning all 3 with an aggregate score of something like 120-50 but in the one that really mattered... .
  7. Craig Hall, Championship Player of the Year Full list of winners here. Slightly surprised Gary Charlton didn't win Coach of the Year https://rugby-league.com/article/36086/betfred-championship-and-league-1-awards-–-winners-announced
  8. Is it the Tony Smith anti PR spiel time of the year already?
  9. I'm pretty sure that's a forum myth. There is nothing in the Operational Rules to say SL players must be FT.
  10. Yes, would definitely be a bit of a leveller (warm and dry forecast for Toulouse). As I've posted on the main forum one of the outsiders winning on Saturday wouldn't be that much of a shock to me but (and I'm pretty sure you agree) backing that up the following week would be unlikely. I only hope that Covid plays no part in any of the 3 games coming up.
  11. One of them reaching the final wouldn't be too much of a shock to me although I think it's very unlikely that either would be able to repeat the feat the following week to gain promotion. Looking back over the season there have been very few shock results so maybe we're due one? I only hope that Covid doesn't play any part in it all
  12. I'll just add that the NHS app QR code is recognised in France to demonstrate your vaccination status
  13. Weather forecast not great for Saturday with the prospect of rain increasing from 40% chance at 2pm to 80%+ around KO time with a moderate breeze blowing uphill
  14. High chance of rain forecast for Saturday, 40% from around 2pm rising to 80% by KO time with a moderate (uphill) breeze
  15. I think funding will still be based on previous year's finishing position which for those in the playoffs is decided by results in the playoffs rather than league standing. It's slightly different this year with 2 teams rather than 1 going out in each round up to the final so the 2 losers from last week may class as equal 5th, the 2 losers from the coming weekend equal 3rd and losers in the GF 2nd. Relegated team will likely get highest funding.
  16. Batley and Halifax both progressed to the semi-finals as the Betfred Championship play-offs got underway; watch both semi-finals live on Sky Sports on Saturday, October 2 Championship play-offs 2021: Batley Bulldogs and Halifax Panthers into semi-finals | Rugby League News | Sky Sports
