Maybe the pitch was too wide for them 🤣

They've just hired a full-time development officer.

Bulls Twitter blaming the ref for disallowing a try. Not like them or a club commentator to call into question officials is it? 🤨

Oops, yes, I took the details from the fixtures file in Monday's LE before the KO changes were known.

Halifax v York is now at 11.30am too.

Fixed both in the opening post.

Oldham v Sheffield Eagles   - It wouldnt surprise me if Oldham turned Sheffield over. They were really poor against Fax this past weekend and this could have a baring on potential relegation battles come end of the season.

Dewsbury Rams v Toulouse Olympique  - Huge Toulouse win.
Featherstone Rovers v Bradford Bulls  - Fev to have too much for Bradford but Bradford looking good for 3rd place the way their fixtures are playing out. 
Halifax Panthers v York City Knights - Should be a Fax win with york struggling to live up to expectations.
Swinton Lions v Newcastle Thunder  - Not a relegation decider by any means but Swinton will be looking at this as a must win game. Just going for them to sneak this one.  
Whitehaven v Batley Bulldogs - Haven always a tough place to go and expecting this to be very evenly matched. I really can't decide on this one.
Widnes Vikings v London Broncos - Widnes need to start winning games if they are to make the top 6 and I think after a good showing against Fev Widnes may just win this one.

Why didn't Rovers kick off earlier like Fax v York so there wouldn't be any trouble after all day drinking ?  It's not many fans but enough to give the club more bad publicity.

Toulouse 

Fev  (Danny out so think Bulls wont have that extra edge )

Fax (Could go either way)

I want a Thunder win.  I know RL in Manchester is on life support but Newcastle staying in Champ is vital for the game. 

Batley  (they are just quietly going about their business)

Broncos with another positive Widnes performance as they look to build for next season.  Win for Widnes here and they might start dreaming of playoffs.

Interesting round of fixtures..... very difficult to predict all of these, apart from TO and Fev wins.

Only saw the highlights reel, but Fax looked on song last week, against (what looked like) some poor Sheffield defending. Fax v York will be an interesting clash of styles 😀

Doesn't matter what time you start the game, there will always be those who have had a skin full before lunch

Depends on who is missing in the TO team. I should hope they have enough in reserve but I'm not expected a huge win.

People on Widnes FB page moaning about the clash with the England game.

Are they even fans? Saying it should be done to maximise attendance! 

Are they daft?

Inevitable that it will have some effect on attendance I would've thought.

Eagles beat Oldham 32-28. They were 32-12 up but a late Oldham fightback assisted by an Eagles red card closed the gap in the last 15.

Some people like to do both. Other teams have moved their games not to clash. They are absolutely right it will impact attendance, saying it won’t is daft

Covid has already impacted on attendance. That was my point. Widnes only released 300 tickets for general sale anyway. 

Obviously fans have forgotten that they nearly didn't have a team to watch. Although that would have meant they could watch all the England games.😁

Look I was annoyed at the time.😁

The choice to limit attendance to season ticket holders only initially has put people off as well. It’s bonkers that we have such a small capacity allowed in a 13.5K stadium. The council have been rubbish in that regard
