It is tough. I would go with Farnworth too. The other is up for grabs.

I agree 

If they are all playing as well as I think they can then I would go with Farnworth left centre and Newman right.  With Wardle and King next in line.

But I also expect Dom Young to develop into an outstanding right centre with more pace and power than all the others we have available... and very good hands.

Yes, Young has all the potential in the world due to his athletic prowess but he’ll need game time

After one game, Toulouse season is mapped out by the experts specialists. After all Giants are top of the league!😀

Sure, Toulouse have lots to do, juat as after the earlier game Powel said the same about Warrington. The gulf in performance between Championship and SuperLeage is pretty wide. As I argued in the case of Leigh, the promoted team needs some sort of protection from immediate relegation. I'm sure Toulouse will come back from this defeat, a result that is no worse that some between some established Super League clubs.

I'm interested in that drive, that rush to judgment, that is so prevalent in our society. We all know that pleasurable rush that comes from condemning, and in the short term it's quite a satisfying thing to do, isn't it?

You're clearly not a Widnes fan. QF of the cup with an easy draw against an Elite level French team. Wembley is but 1 SL team away!

Luckily it wasn't televised 😮

Toulouse squad is paper thin. I suppose paying 400k for other full time SL clubs to travel to France is going to really hurt their recruitment budget.

Bizarrely, Catalans don't have to pay for UK clubs to travel over to France. You couldn't make it up.

Game over one has to think. Key signatures have to be a priority for Toulouse. 

I really hope they aren't paying for professional teams to fly over there.

Yes they are and Catalans don't.

There always has to be a way for the English sides to shaft the new team. I guess it was that or they would just refuse them any money.

You do wonder if the expense of no home regular season games last year & being forced to pay visiting teams airfares has emptied the coffers.

Don't think they were banking on SL clubs shafting them with travel expenses either.

Well played Huddersfield but there’s a whiff of Toronto about Toulouse 

Wakefield and Salford will be chuffed they both get Toulouse at home in the first 5 weeks.

How many games did it take London to get their first win? Just checked they got a couple of wins in the first 6 games including round 1 against Wakefield
