Yet again, Catalans indiscipline costs them dear. Well done to Salford. 

10 - 3 set restarts for Salford on top of a 1st half pen count of 7-1 was it?  That's a big mountain.

I mean the high shot by Garcia that led to a try and binning of Kasiano. Catalans should have won that and they know it.

This was a good result for Salford, but a bad result for rugby league.

Having Catalans at Wembley would have been a huge shot in the arm for French rugby league, even more than in 2018 because of the limited amount of sport available on French television during the Covid pandemic. Millions of French sports  fans would have been introduced to our game.

Having Salford at Wembley, in the unlikely event that they win their way there, will result in a very much below average crowd (only 3,000 people even attend when Salford games are played at Salford), And the one million plus casual sports fans who would initially tune in to watch the BBC telecast of the Final would be puzzled about where Salford is, and bored by the lack of attacking flair of the pedestrian Red Devils. They would quickly switch off the channel.

Catalans need to think seriously about how they can get the ball early to their match winning centre Israel Folau if they are to progress to and in the playoffs of Super League. Folau has been wasted over the past two games.

It strikes me the restarts in this game were quite arbitary.  Even without that Catalan were generally flat.  But if they were energy sapped to start with the restarts dragged them to the knees.  But importantly they struggled to get points from their plays in the 10m area.  These days thats were you have to win.  It's the 10m line that counts these days, the middle of the park is just a trundle up and down.

I get the feeling if that Salford side were French you’d be saying how good they are to watch. You seem prejudiced against British players/teams.

Not true. I am a big fan of the quality English teams, particularly St.Helens.

Manfred you are a clown,  No - a bitter clown - No a bitter and BIASED clown - Salford seem to regularly beat the Dragons by playing superior Rugby League - far better than the Bargefest by the French forwards.

I really thought Salford had peaked getting to the GF and with the team being broken up they were on a inevitable downward spiral, but Ian Watson just keeps working his magic. Hope they make the final.

Have you forgotten the pathetic attendance at Wembley a couple of years ago for Catalans v Warrington? Salford were worthy winners, get over it.

Salford getting to Wembley will result in a below average crowd? I think Covid will contribute to that more seen as even if there is a crowd at all it will be limited to about 20,000. 

I find it bizarre that the RFL is still planning to ship 20k plus fans from the North to Wembley for the final - it probably won't be allowed by the time we get there - but hopefully Wembley is giving them a cheap deal this year given the limits. 

Normally I take advantage of cheap early tickets and try and get a bunch of mates along, but this year am giving it a miss, mainly cos people in London still largely avoiding the tube.

Two of us will drive and park as close as we can get if we can.

I thought MickyMac was generally slow moving the ball from the ruck. Did not really help Catalans get moving.

Hmmmmmm. Are you sure?

I didn’t make a statement about whether or not Salford were worthy winners. I only commented on whether the possible future presence at Wembley of Salford compared to Catalans would be more or less beneficial for the game of rugby league.

I think that you are confusing me with somebody else.
