I think you’re the one who’s obsessed about it, but yeah it’s great to see such a large crowd - hopefully they’ll maintain it in SL.

Gutted Feath lost, but Toulouse were the better side from the kick off to the final whistle. Probably true of the season as much as tonight’s game. 
 

deserve their place in Super League and it’ll be interesting to see how two french teams affects things.

Huge congratulations to Toulouse, I think they'll be a great asset to Super League next year.

I was pleased that Featherstone made a fight of it in the second half, and there was a brief period when I thought that Toulouse might bottle it. They settled down considerably once Casty and Hansen came back on, and ran out worthy winners.

They are going to need a few additions, but they have a great coach and I think they'll do OK next season

I wonder if Zak Hardaker would be interested in a bit of French culture

It's a fair old ride in the Megabus that.

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.

Is it me or does the atmosphere seems as flat as a crepe?

Seeing quite a lot of French fans posting about the crazy atmosphere at the game, so I think it was just the Sky coverage - although you could hear the Fev fans just fine.

Toulouse deserved , best side all year and earned promotion . A welcome addition to SL and have what  it takes to make an impression 

David, if this was in the days of the middle 8's they wouldn't have been promoted. The challenge was to better SL and the Middle 8's where a great way of doing that. I wish them well in 2022, recruitment is vital but the Mayor will ensure they are funded and they have a few extra months to recruit. Wakey and Salford will be planning for the Championship or SL2 already

Yeah, that was the odd thing. There were periods of virtual silence where it sounded like you could have heard a sparrow fart in a nearby Toulouse tree.

Great game, and Fev did very well to be right in it up to the [fairly] disallowed try. 

I'm really excited about Toulouse in SL next year. They certainly will need to strengthen, but as a very long-time RL fan, even I've been feeling it's all been a bit stale and same-old-same-old these last few years. I had stopped watching games which didn't involve Saints, and was feeling quite disenchanted. Toulouse offer something a bit new, a bit different, and after seeing the rise of Catalans into genuine contenders, I'm excited for what a potentially even bigger French team can bring in the future.

Nobody has been watching them until last week tbf, which was my point. Glad you seem to be taking some personal satisfaction though - enjoy chief.

Couldn't agree more. Superleague really needed a shot in the arm.

Let's hope for they can stay up!

If Catalan and Toulouse negotiate their own TV contract, will they have to share the revenue with the rest of SL?

 

Be funny if they didn't.

I was going to ask a silly question- no sound on in the pub and people mentioning how flat it all was. Are the attendees just on a curious freeby?  Sounds much better hearing reports of a good time. Hoping so anyway. 

TESTICULI AD  BREXITAM.

They had gone 500 days without a home game tbf. And their last one v Batley in March 2020 drew over 4.5k at Ernest Wallon so it was obvious to those who followed them closely that the foundations were there for what we've seen this last week.

Toulouse is bigger than every SL town or city with the exception of Leeds! 

The obsession with the size of a city is ridiculous. Newcastle? London? St Helens?

Feel really disappointed with the game today, even in the opening moments Toulouse were on top. 

The first half we had polar opposite performances, Toulouse looking incredibly strong and showing there dominance - whilst Featherstone probably could have broken wind and they would have followed through. 

Second half and the first 20 minutes was what I was expecting from the contest, but in all fairness the game was probably done in the first half. Featherstone were just left with far too much to do and even when they had chances the ball didn't bounce kindly in there favour. Probably due to the fact Toulouse were really good!

Toulouse most certainly deserve promotion into Super League and I hope they continue playing the way they do. Spectacular rugby.

Well done Toulouse.

Including Hull ?

Yes, Toulouse is quite a lot bigger than Hull.

Toulouse is a fantastic city to visit; I really hope I can get there for a game next year.
