What a great few days for French RL.

Two home semifinal wins played in front of big crowds.

Hoping they can both finish it next week with 2 more wins.

These dastardly foreigners don’t bring anything to the sport 🇫🇷🇫🇷

That kick by Kheirallah for the last try was absolutely stupendous.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Completely agree; bar the bit in bold. One win on Sunday please! 😉

I'm at the stadium and it's a bit warm! 

Yeah, and sunny too by the looks of it...not the Met Office's finest hour!

Big stand behind cameras looks packed. Wouldn't surprise me if it was in the 8-10k region. Given the 19,500 capacity.

Great effort. 10k+ next week maybe for the blockbuster?

They posted that the east stand was almost sold out, just before the game.

Unfortunately we gave them 18 points and game gone, poor second half from Batley, but credit TOXIII worthy winners

Yes, they scored off all three of the dropped catches. They were the gamebreakers. 

We played well and made Toulouse make a lot of errors. But they did the same to us and were very clinical. 

To be the fourth best side is a great achievement and hopefully more to come.

After the sad events of last night, we have had 2 heart lifting stories in 3 days. We just need the pro World Cup Bunnies to beat the anti World Cup Panthers and things will have gone not so bad. Toulouse looked rusty, but that often comes after the week off. Home advantage will be massive for them next week. In the Brev we trust.

So 7000 vs Batley in a tier 2 playoff semi.  Imagine what they would get for Catalán. Clearly offer nothing to the game.  

8000.

Thoroughly enjoyed that. Great to be back in the stadium after so long. Lovely warm and sunny but very windy which caused problems for both sides. Toulouse a bit nervous and tried to be too exciting in the 1st half but got back to doing the basics right in the 2nd. 

Credit to Batley though, they lost someone to injury very early on but gave TO a good game in the 1st half. Good to see some who had made the journey as well. 

Possibly going to be over 9000 there next week. Special promo of 5€ tickets if you went this week. Depends how many Catalan supporters make the trip to Manchester for next weekend. Lots of supporters from all over the south here this time which was great as well as seeing so many kids in the crowd.

I was thinking a sell out.

Also it shows up some of the more “traditional” clubs and their inability to get decent attendances for big matches

I’d be more concerned of the poor performance.

They won fairly easily in the end and got a decent run out ahead of the final

I have covered my concerns with some clubs in oversized boxes and could be a concern for Toulouse but from a sponsorship , tv and commercial viewpoint Toulouse vs Catalan could be massive for the game in Europe.

Come on Toulouse, having Batley anywhere near the top flight would make the sport a laughing stock.

Allowing someone with views like yours to vote makes a laughing stock of democracy, but I guess nothing in life is perfect.

Because tradition is not cool in modern society. 😒

Batley being nowhere near the top flight is tradition though
