  1. Yet a pretty average London had a real go and we’re very unlucky not to stay up. Toronto we’re poorly managed, contracts too big and McDermott lost the plot. I think Toulouse have a good balance. Decent squad already, room to spend and established structures and staff. Assuming they sign a couple of good players I think they’ll be fine. It’ll be tough for teams going there.
  2. I would have picked Moors over Davies, yes and Field. I love JD but rotating moors onto an edge gives you a X factor. No coincidence Gaga’s tries dried when he was gone. Agree day and halton fairly similar. Our middle was quite lightweight and got rolled in the first 20. Think that would have happened whoever we had out there to be fair. They came out like it was a grand final we didn’t. Coach has to take some criticism for that because they clearly had it in them in the second half
  3. I thought beforehand that Fev would come to miss Harrison, Moors and Day. Moors was key to the right edge attack and is a big body. Harrison is excellent in the middle hence his move to warrington. Fev’s game plan is based on fast rucks and 2 very good hookers going at the line. Toulouse won every collision in that first half practically. If Fev had weathered the storm I think Toulouse would have gotten nervous and you could tell lack of matches affected them. In any case they deserved to win. Fev had two cracks at them this year and came up short twice.
  4. I’m a Fev fan and sometimes some of our fans can go over the top, but everyone has been quite dignified. The Facebook group is usually a bit toxic but apart from a couple of the usual ref blamers, most acknowledged Toulouse were better. I’d like to think Sir Kevin Sinfield et al would have reacted with similar dignity. It’s sport and Toulouse won on the field. Looking forward to seeing how they go next year, either way it was a new team in SL, which needs it. Hopefully Fev can go again next year.
  5. Congrats Toulouse best team on the day. If Fev had started the first half like the second I didn’t fancy Toulouse’s composure but good game in the end
  6. Good luck to him, good to see someone appoint from within, British and not just go for a name. RL falls for that too often, you don’t have to be a great player to be a great manager, soccer proves this often. Mourinho never even kicked a ball…
  7. Thought Fev had got some lights from Leeds Utd?
  8. As someone else mentioned, you might want to research who Fev’s main sponsors are before making comments like that. I’d also be interested to hear which promoted club, or any club for that matter, brought in sponsors directly for the league itself? Toulouse is a traditional RL area, both teams would likely bring back lapsed and new fans upon promotion. Both clubs’ attendances in the championship are similar. Both teams have good stadia and facilities. Both teams have good junior development records, Fev’s historically better. If they get promoted I’m sure they’ll be allowed to have an academy again and player production will resume. How would you measure ‘new fans’ and ‘new sponsors’ as criteria before a team is even promoted? Utterly ridiculous comment.
  9. I believe both of those turned them down before Marshall, but the young british option is a good path for them to take.
  10. There were investors initially who pulled out, the guys were hired to find new investment after that happened. Some teams actually got some funding from the initial investment
  11. The NARL put their hopes into investors who seemingly pulled out, the streaming service was a low income part of the equation I believe. Your second sentence may be true but that relies on the teams getting back together under one banner, or carrying on with a 5 team USARL. I'm surprised any NARL team played a game after the rug got pulled, fair play to them for getting the game on.
  12. Great effort from Haven, really good stuff in a competitive league and one of the favourites for relegation. I think they might beat Fax with the momentum they have but surely the first round of play-offs is just for vanity. It would be a shame if the final weren't Toulouse v Fev. The two best teams by a long way, expansionist vs traditionalist rivalry, controversy about games played and covid, lots of SL level talent. Should be an amazing final if it happens, but this is the play-offs and anything can happen.
  13. There is currently no answer to this and therein lies the problem. Hopefully there can be some kind of collaboration to get a joint competition on next year otherwise it'll be more friendlies under different banners next year.
  14. He's a very good player. Excellent balance and footwork with great skill and a fair bit of pace. People suggesting he's average haven't a clue. Very similar to Shenton at his peak. Agree his defence isn't his strong point but it's not as bad as people are making out, just a lazy assumption because he isnt a massive bloke.
  15. Just create your own sport and call it NRL and let the rest of us move on. It’s getting to the point where it will be ‘who scores first wins’. No hope for our sport.
