From wanting to be entertained and expecting a competitive entertaining game I would choose the Toulouse v Fev final, they are far better matched to deliver a good game, I just think that both St Helen's teams Ladies and Men will be far to good for their opposites.

Which final will your grandson be watching? - he's in the know so ill go with his choice. 👍

Catalans have beaten Saints twice this year. Fev v Toulouse is fascinating as they have only played once this year. Outside of that, they have both been thrashing everyone else.

Tactful title Harry, well done. My choice would be Toulouse v Fev as, if Toulouse win, it's the one with the most potential to transform RL in the Northern Hemisphere. But I can't get there so I'll be at Old Trafford cheering on the Dragons like crazy. I'm a huge England RL fan and want us to absolutely massacre them and every other team in the WC, but 2 French victories next weekend would be the best possible result for the game.

But that's supporting expansion only when it suits.

It's easy to support a French side when they are playing a side other than your own or that you have no connection with. 

I would say the French national team winning is most important as competitive  international rugby draws in media interest.

Really difficult decision but if I had to choose then Catalan and Saints but only just.  The women's game doesn't even come close and I must admit I only thought of two choices when I read the topic title.

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

Can only be TOXIII v Fev for me. I think I’d rather sell my testicles to body part dealers than miss this one.

Yep. Arguably Toulouse game has greater potential to transform sport in Europe and France.  So for me,  it is the more important game. 

Still would be amazing to have French team win SL as well.

I think you are going to be dissapointed on both counts Salop.

It would be a tough decision if the criteria were a little wider but if we are talking purely based on being entertained then the Super League Grand Final.

Each to their own Dunny, I somewhat liked the absence of wrestling, fictitious crusher tackles, the player's who want to ref the game and challenge every decision, and the defending teams faking injuries to stop the attacking teams momentum.

Now I know it is not 100% this way, but it is a vast improvement on what goes on in SL. Granted the player's are of a better quality in SL if only they would get on with the game as they do in the Championship it would be 10x improoved.
