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? 🤨

London player penalised on his own 10m line for stepping over the ball and not playing the ball with his foot. Unapologetic Pedant would be delighted. Widnes capitalise, but Tyrer misses the conversion. 22-18 with 9 minutes to go.

22-24 London take the lead for the first time in the game with 2 minutes to go, with a somewhat dubious pass, after a great ball steal from Aston and a sharp break from Sammut.

The spectator has been taken to hospital by ambulance and the final 20 minutes will now be played.

Best wishes to the person who collapsed. Apparently the doctor at the ground and both clubs' medical staff acted quickly in coming to their assistance.

I will take the last gasp win. What do you mean dubious pass - have you not heard about the momentum rule 😉. Anyway game in the books now.

When the pinch comes the common people will turn out to be more intelligent than the clever ones. I certainly hope so.

Ridiculous if the law is only occasionally applied, going to be interesting in the RLWC with the Aussies correctly executing the PTB every time and any team with a preponderance of UK players just rolling it backwards because they have been allowed to do it for years.

I expected a tougher game for Fax today but apart from a 10 minute spell in the second half it was pretty convincing. We are hitting a bit of form now which makes the games we threw away against Oldham and Bradford even more annoying. Batley away in a couple of weeks is a huge game for us in regards the top 4 because we have a nice run of fixtures through to August and the Toulouse game in which we should win most of them.

The top 6 does look to be from 7 teams now and with Fax not having to go to London or York and Bradford not going to Toulouse could have big barrings on final standings.

Yes, good close game which could've gone either way. Hard to see either side threatening Toulouse, but both looking massively better than they were in the opening rounds. Kudos to the single London fan at today's game, who appears to be making the most of the cheap pints in Widnes right now.

What a great weekend of Champ RL.  Widnes narrow loss is painful but shows huge improvement from start of season.

Huge win for London puts them two wins clear of York. A massive win for Thunder and Whitehaven losing means they are in the mix. And next week, Thunder at home to Oldham  (a revenge game and relegation decider there). And Batley just keep winning against the teams they should. 

And yep Widnes out of playoff hunt now. So its Toulouse Fev and Bulls top 3. Then three from Batley,  Broncos,  Fax and York.  

Chuck a blanket over Vikings Sheffield and Dewsbury.  

Then two from Thunder, Haven, Oldham and Swinton.  What a great season.

Featherstone crush Bradford 44-0 and frankly the score flattered Bradford as Fev bombed a number of tries, could easily have been 60+. Some fantastic tries scored though and some great defence when Bradford got near the line.

A bit of gloom though that very much dampened the occasion as poor Brad Day looked like he may have sustained another bad injury and Thomas Minns, another who has struggled with serious injuries, also had to be helped off. A bad day all round for injuries as Ben Evans and Ebon Scurr both sustained bad-looking injuries, Scurr had to be stretchered off in an incident that delayed the game by about ten minutes.

Enjoyed the game, not the result.

Just glad to be back at Halton Stadium, watching Widnes live.

Do they have an opinion on the timekeeper?

Scores like that indicate Fev have hit them with everything but the kitchen sink.  Even if we give them the officials being bad, what about the rest?

i don’t see any team, yet, challenging TO or Fev.

I'd say Swinton were done. So one from Newcastle, Whitehaven & Oldham.
