Glad to hear this mini drama has been sorted.

Widnes fans this week have had transport disrupted by strikes, weather problems, police shooting teenagers dead etc. and yet people somehow manage to take different flights, or use trains, hire cars or even buses. Toulouse is a big city in a country with superb transport infrastructure. Getting to Albi or Carcassonne is hardly difficult if that's where these games end up being rather than Blagnac.

Minimes is used by the Elite 1 side, but I'm not sure it'd cope with a couple of thousand paying spectators - it's more of a community sports facility than a stadium now.

Surely nobody better used to this sort of stuff than Widnes fans.šŸ„¹

And seriously hope everyone enjoys the trip.

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

Not sure how many would have already booked for a match in mid-september.

I'm not sure what is happening to be honest as looking at the matches in Toulouse for the WC, they only start 10th September so the Featherstone match should really be the only one truly affected. As it's Stade Toulousaine that have the final say, then all I can think of that the Japanese team get priority over the whole of the stadium from Mid-August, which is a bit ###### to be honest.Ā 

Remember Pearl Harbour?

Yeah I agree and enjoyed going to the 2 finals we got to but it should be the curtain raiser not put to the back of the queue when 90% of fans will have gone.

To be fair for whichever teams do get there their fans probably couldn't be bothered whether it was first or last and will likely just be happy to get the chance to see their team play at Wembley.

Fans don't watch more than one game at a stadium anyway. Finals, bash, magic. When I have been, it's the lot for me !.

As a neutral I would tend to agree but if my team gets there Im watching what ever the time of the kick off.Ā 

If it were as a curtain raiser then for me personally I might not stay and watch the CC final if it had a team in there that I don't care for like Cats or Hull where as if its the last game on then I would likely take in the CC final as well so a little bit swings and roundabouts for me.

I can see your point, we stayed for both main finals.

Ā  Crisp was over a fence clear of Red Rum but staggered like a drunken sailor on the long run in and got beat in the last two strides.It's all to play for a two or three match finale.

Fev obviously clear and not being caught , the MPG/CGF will be at Post Office RdĀ 

Who they play ? , Still work for Toulouse to do to collect home advantageĀ 

My predictionĀ 

A very nervous Fev to sneak a very close final win over ToulouseĀ

And people say that no-one remembers who comes second.

You're right - Devon Loch gave up, didn't he?

Don't write Bradford off. Been excellent since Dunning left. The one match they did lose was against Toulouse. That sort of backs your prediction up tbh. I rate Bulls. Look at just their try scorers alone today, Quality.
