I will be a neutral Futtocks, being a Lancashire lad, I will be firmly in Saints corner tomorrow night against the Yorkshire club and I expect them to win, so come next Saturday guess where my preferance will be?

Do you think it will be good for the sport for Catalans to win?

Well done Catalans...and Hull KR too, for turning themselves round this season. Childs did well, too. All round, a great game.

I agree. However, at a French XIII forum, Child's performance was seen as biased against Catalans but they prevailed despite his arbitration.

It takes wisdom to know when a discussion has run its course.

It takes reasonableness to end that discussion.

Love that they pulled McIllorum up on that pass into Keinhorst, sometimes the old dogs can’t get away with the old tricks eh 😂

 

Thought to myself that McIlorum surely couldn't have been stupid enough to do that on purpose.

Then saw the replay.

Old Faithful we never lose at Wembley

Apparently an earthquake has been recorded along the M62 with RL traditionalist stamping their feet.

To be fair, Catalan supporters could Have Gauch reffing the game and claim he was biased.

English teams have been the worst offenders for using imports since 1895.

That would be nice. The media in France may then start to acknowledge the game and give it reasonable coverage.

The media in France have a bigger bias against RL than our league loving press in comparison.

What it will do is give that region of France that has suffered from poor investment for years a shot in the arm and get more local businessmen and politicians to get involved.

In France the political element cannot be underestimated as far as sport goes.

No Tomkins, no Cats win, in my view.

Mourgue, Yaha, Garcia, Bousquet, Chan and Goudemand. That’s 6 I believe. And they had 9 Frenchmen named in the 21 man squad. Catalans squad is made up of players from various nationalities, as is every squad in Super League.

When Catalans walk out at Old Trafford in eight days time, I would have though the only RL fans not cheering them on will be the respective supporters of whichever team wins the second SF tonight.

Oh, and maybe a few small minded "traditionalists".

A new name reaching the Final is great news for our sport.

A French team winning it would be the greatest thing to happen to our sport since Les Cats won the RL Challenge Cup.

I simply cannot understand the mindset of anyone who might think otherwise.

Sky Sports Jenna Brooks to Jake Connor regarding England selection : "Shaun Wane has said that he's spoken to you about why you were left out, he's also said he's told you what you needed to do more of, I'm interested, what do you need to do more of and did you do it tonight?"

Jake Connor : "I don't know, to be honest I haven't spoken to him."
