Roll the clock back a few years Gubby, neither was my mate Mick Hogan but he would try to bring down a charging buffalo!

I was going to say Rhino but that may have confused everyone, it could be mistaken for one of those from Headingley and everyone knows they have no chargers these days.

The crowd response has all the hallmarks of an old fashioned wrestling match brilliant!

I don't know why people are disappointed seems a fine match to me.

At the home ground of the highest ranked team in the final.

At a neutral ground probably. 

Iceland or Greenland it is then.

Is that confirmed? I've not seen anything anywhere. MPG was higher ranked team, but previous GFs have been at neutral venue announced earlier in the season.

For those that are at the game today? How many Toronto and Toulouse fans have made the trip? Just seen a small section of Canadians which is great to see.

Your easily pleased Oxford, I don't even like watching my team in one sided games never mind watching others, as others have prooved the way to take Toronto on is to get into their faces and rough house them.

Considering there is only a week between the semi's and the final, there woukd not be enough time for fans to arrange travel etc, if Toronto or Toulouse are that team.

I just like RL enough to enjoy it as the best game in the universe. I think you're easily disappointed!

Exactly. To be fair though that is what happened last year in the MPG with London having to go to Toronto.

I agree with your assessment of the sport, but then we have varying degrees of entertaining matches, this for me is not a competitive game.

And that still got a good crowd.

So? Many of them aren't .... next you'll be expecting refs to be consistent!

I just see each one as unique.

Yes but that had been the ruling for the previous MPG's, This is effectively a knockout competition being a top 5 play-off and previous finals have been played at neutral venues.

Nearly over now but, barring the 1st 15 minutes of the 2nd half, TWP have worked TO over.  Good to see Kay back and he gives them good attacking options.

Disappointed in TO.  Didn’t seem to want to carry on mixing it and neither half back got a grip of the game. Barthau tried but Ford didn’t seem to fancy it. I thought Keirilla was away, on his interception, but amazed to see him caught quite easily.

Only 1 all between the 2 teams.
