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.

It seems bizarre to notice it after the whole season but the body shapes of the Fev forwards were really noticeable. Toulouse looked noticably bigger in the middle and Fev could not hold them. Fev's aces seemed to be in the outside backs and they looked very dangerous, but unfortunately they could not stop the tide in the middle.

Best team of the season and on the night won by a mile. A lot of pressure on TO to win the game. Good atmosphere though the fans were quieter than the Batley game.

Great that the main sponsor Mr Sarrazin has seen his investment finally bear fruit, the game  needs people like him.

Next season will be fun, let’s enjoy it for however long it lasts.

Yes it is three times the size of Hull.

1m compared to 320k!

Population of Toulouse is actually just under 500,000.

Hmm, good point, that must be why so many people were giving me funny looks when I was there back in 2019. What, French people have never seen a goose in a Hull shirt? Well they certainly will in Toulouse next year! 👍

I've seen a fair few in my time.

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

It's not really ridiculous. You need an audience. You need a potential audience.

I understand your point, but it is more complex than that. For instance St Helens get approx 10 times the size of crowd than London.

It looked like Toulouse would run away with it but Fev came back into the game but their attack inside Toulouse’s 20 let them down.

Metropolitan area of Toulouse is 1,021,000. Fact.

Is not a fact. Several babies were born there this evening.😃

You have to compare like with like. So, again the population of Toulouse is around 500,000.

In that case Leeds is the largest?

I am not sure to be honest. The wiki figures for Leeds seem very high. 

It's only trivia but I suppose now the season is over we will need something to occupy us🙂

Yep, I thought when Ferguson came on he made a difference to that. 

Funnily enough I thought he was one of the better Featherstone players, yet he probably wouldn't have played if Cooper hadn't renewed his passport. 

Toulouse were class all over.

And that is exactly the point.  Teams garner support from a much wider area than just the metropolis. There are Toulouse fans in Yorkshire, for example (fatuous point, I know, but is is after all, a fatuous argument).

Toulouse looked like a club with a week to prepare a clinical game plan. They then executed it in the first 20 minutes. Fev have all the constraints of being part timers and it told in that first half sadly. They needed the home side to make a shakey start to warm into the game. The second half was more of what Fev have been doing all season - trying their hand and using their outside backs.

That's the problem, if you search population of Wigan you will get a figure around 350K, that will include Leigh though.

Wigan town is around 130k and Leigh around 110k with other places like Hindley, Atherton and Tyldesley making up for the rest.

Quoting populations isn't easily done accurately.
