Mc namara "quick warm the two young french lads on the bench. Send them on where far enough in front" 😁 

Is there no good young French 7s because Drinkwater despite his try has been poor for a while now.

he covers a lot of ground

Tom Johnstone being very likeable and articulate in this feature. Then he blows it by admitting to being a Belieber.

Who are the team in grey, really disciplined, I don't recognise them.

I was about to say that Dudson has looked really useful for Catalans so far, then he goes and scores under the posts. Good going, Gil.

Back when he made his Wales debut, in 2008 IIRC, then Wales coach John Dixon (ex-Celtic Crusaders and Queenslander) said:

”If Gil Dudson is still playing rugby league in 10 years or so he will be some player!”

Nice bit of useless nostalgia for you

I can't wrap my head up around this "contact in the air" thing anymore. They both were clearly going for the ball there.

It wasn't contact that was the problem, it was knocking the ball out ( stealing) in the air.

Id imagine because there is no comparison between the two

They were almost identical, one swinging with the left arm and the other with the right but other than that pretty much the same

Morgue is a 7. Albert was and there's a young 18 years old one called Cesar rougĂ© in the reserves but as the roosters showed this morning 18 is too young😁

Roosters are only playing Walker because the 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice halves are out and the 4th choice is playing alongside him.

I think you are overly critical of Drinkwater

Walker was always going to get games this year and no Drinkwater is a poor 7 who gets bailed out by Tomkins creativity & kicking game.

Drinkwater had 14 try assists to Tomkins 11 last year

Rougé likely will make the step up sooner or later. He's really good one on one.

How has Albert played this season?

Wakefield never recovered from that kick out on the full by Lino. 

So easy pushing our little rag dolls back over the line for repeat drop outs.  

This world was never meant for one as beautiful as me.

And was a serious contender for World Hide & Seek champion in the playoffs,he’s poor and his lack of quality will cost the Catalans when the big games come around

Just don’t have the quality, Trinity. 

Agreed - lots of puff and they can be relatively competitive for periods of the game but always have a period where they are dominated and ship points.

One thing I have noticed when I have seen Catalan's is how little interaction there seems to be between James Maloney and the other Catalan's player's when they score or pull off a strong tackle etc, I know it's hard to get the full view from TV but it is noticeable, he wouldn't be the first player to be at odds with so called team mates but he hasn't produced the form that he is capable of whilst over here and there was recent talk of the Roosters sniffing around due to their injury problems in the halves which may be a unsettling factor.

Solid but not outstanding. Not standing out like gigot at Avignon against the lower teams but doing a good job and carcassonne are first with only one loss so could be doing alot of stuff we dont notice.

On a different tack while they take the kick, what is written on the Catalan's a*** 

I think it says, "Don't look at my backside" in French.

That is the very last time I watch the RFL`s ghastly rollball. Hereafter I will be sticking with competitions in other countries where authentic RL is played.

Hilarious to hear the pundits still talking about "quick PTBs" - whom do they think they`re kidding?

We`ll see what the WC brings.

I was surprised to see Maloney play after his cannonball tackle last match. I know he got binned for it at the time but did disciplinary not give him a ban? I thought they were trying to clamp down on this. 

Disappointing that Tanginoa didn’t get at least binned for his swinging arm
