Fri 31 Jan-Sun 2 Feb: The Betfred Championship Match Thread

Recommended Posts

TO lost their opening two games last season. York finished 3rd last season. I'm not overly confident for a TO win, I hope to be pleasantly surprised.

Dewsbury 10-36 Leigh full time. Leigh cut loose second half after Dewsbury led for much of the first.

Oooh I was two points out

Very windy and cold at the Dewsbury tonight , the Rams had the wind in the first half which evened up the game , once Leigh got 2 scores up early 2nd half there was only ever going to be one winner 

Tidy little ground now , it deserves more support than it gets , as do the team

Only one I might disagree with there is Leigh -10. Dewsbury seem a bit more upbeat this season and on a Friday night in January this might be a close contest against a Leigh team who are probably still finding their feet as an attacking force.

Confidence will be increased if Beaumont predicts an unbeaten season for Leigh beforehand.

Dam talkerd ourselves out of it. Its going to be the only winner now. ??

I read somwhere that Dewsbury completed in the upper 80's percentage wise. That's some beating if true and could be worrying signs for the season. I wonder when they will pull the trigger and bring the Bradford lads in that are sat in the stands for Hull Kr.

I would also guess at 70% possession, forcing numerous drop outs and on the back of a one sided penalty count - Leighs defence was outstanding

I've been looking at the squads on Wikipedia.

Leigh look to be the best team on paper.

Last night we had Ridyard, Sammut, Ioane, Bienek, Ince, Brooks, Field, Mullen, Thornley, Forsythe and Holdroyd not involved. Recruitment has gone well pre season and  the team has gelled quickly showing great comradery last night. Will be a great comp this year without TW

Nearly impossible to find the stream for the Toulouse game on the desktop site, only found it thanks to the RFL twitter with a direct link

The website design is really weird. The stream should be the centrepiece but it’s very difficult to find.

Last season there was a "Live Stream" option that would appear at the top along with the predictor and match centre. but it's still not there.
Managed to find it no bother on the app but I'd rather not watch it all than watch it on my phone.

You are spot on. There's no obvious link when you log in as an OurLeague member. I tried bookmarking the actual video page, but that didn't last.

Nowadays, I tend to log in as normal, then use the link on the https://www.rugbyleagueontv.com/ page to load the live stream.

The finest, golden, salted French butter has now been applied to the players' fingertips.

It'll be proper taste-free marge when Brexit kicks in... :kolobok_wink:

Red card! A kick to the face by a Toulouse player that, while it didn't connect, looked deliberate. Nasty.
