Are giving Batley a right humping. Good start to their season.

Had the goal kicker Mark Kheirallah been more accurate with his goal kicking (he only kicked 4 conversions out of 9), the score would have been more than 50. The outstanding PNG talent Kuni Minga scored three tries, and youg French centre Gavin Margueritte scored two tries of a nine try total.

It seems that Toulouse has assembled a dazzling array of (mostly French) talent in their team. Here's hoping that they make the top 4 in the Championship and successfully challenge for a place in Super league for 2018.

A local derby in Super League between Catalans and Toulouse will do wonders for French rugby league -- attracting new fans, new players, new sponsors and more TV money in France.

I remember their visit to the Shay well, by the fact they failed to bring a single fan!

Great for the clubs coffers. And with Bradford probably playing in League One next year, and another club, Toronto replacing them, and I expect Salford to replace Hull.KR. there's going to be some electric atmospheres next year. Might as well hold the Summer Bash at Barrow.

An unnecessary dig at the Toulouse fans.

I am hoping that Toulouse win promotion to Super League at the end of this season. It will not only be great for rugby league in itself, but it will leave a clear path for Toronto to gain promotion to Super League at the end of 2018.

Here's an idea, why not relegate all the boring English teams from Super League and replace them with as many French & Canadian cities as possible. I'm sure this will be a roaring success.

That is going to happen anyway Mr Sarcastic. And it will be a roaring success.

Possible Super League in 2021:

Leeds
Bradford
Hull FC
Hull KR
Huddersfield
Wigan
St Helens
Warrington

Catalans
Toulouse

Toronto
Montreal

Perhaps these clubs should rely more on their home fans turning up in numbers rather than that of away fans. Just a thought...

3,600 at Toulouse apparently today. Not sure how true that is yet though but if it is, I doubt it was because of how many Batley brought.
