Discuss the Betfred Championship Play-off Final: Toronto Wolfpack v Featherstone Rovers here.

Please keep this thread about the game itself, not all the periphery issues about who should or should not be in Super League, etc. There are lots of other threads covering those subjects already. Thanks.

Obviously, heart says Fev, head says Toronto.

As for a score prediction? Heart says 26-22 to Fev, head says 36-12 Toronto.

There is no pressure on Fev at all though, after the journey the boys have been on since those cold, dark winter months with 9 contracted players and no coach to being 80 minutes from the promised land has been phenomenal. Whatever the result the Rovers are winners to me.

Can’t see any mistakes from Toronto this time , McDermott will have them on point and he’s done this many times before .

They have performed well above expectations and deserve credit for reaching the final whatever the result. Hope its a game too far as a TWP fan but can respect their achievements this term.

Such a shame Brad Day is out, he's been great. Walters and King are players that could make a difference so will be interesting to see if they are fit.

I'm also a heart says Fev, head says Toronto guy. I just cant visualize Fev winning this game, but maybe that's because I daren't!

I'll say Wolfpack 22-10

Toronto by about 30 points. I do hope it’s closer but don’t give Fev much of a chance personally.

Walters and Day both ruled out by Ryan Carr. King and Carey not ruled out yet.

If ever there was a backs-to-the-wall situation it's this one for Fev, both starting back rows out and possibly two others. The team flew back into Bristol yesterday afternoon, then a coach journey back to Yorkshire, try and fit in a couple of days' work (Josh Hardcastle for instance tweeting about being back roofing this morning), then back on a plane on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Toronto's squad will no doubt be undergoing rub-downs, video sessions and designer training sessions as they prepare for their final assault.

It's a proper David v Goliath situation, but this kind of game is what RL is all about and whoever wins deserves their place in SL.

Despite the magnificent performance's Fev have put in recently I think TWP will just be too strong, both player wise and in McDermott's nous in these situations.

Phantom I was told this morning, the team travelling back from Bristol was on the road for 7 hours. Not the ideal preparation but we've just got to go with the hand we've been dealt.

Not according to this:

http://secure.rugby-league.com/ign_docs/2020%20League%20Structure.pdf

Then again, the page title on that link says 2020 season, the graphic says 2019 season, so who the hell knows, tbh. ?‍♂️

Wolfpack by18. Wilkin had an interview on BBC 5 live and he said that the Fev games were the toughest for them and the closet thing to a SL team, likely the Leeds factor. 

I'm expecting a great game...and us winning.

Heart says Fev head says TWP. But No pressure on Rovers it’s all on Toronto so maybe just maybe ...... ?

i can dream but honestly think it will be Toronto 22 - The Mighty Featherstone Rovers - 12
