On paper that was one of Widnes easier games against a championship team with home advantage.

Everyone will target them now as thevSL TEAM TO BEAT.

don’t see them coming back from that

London kept their focus for the full 80 minutes, which all the Championship teams need to do against their SL adversaries. On that showing, they could lose 7 from 7, but equally they could pick up a win or two (or even three) if their opponents lose focus during the game. Any which way, the MPG is probably a good result for the Vikings now.

Toulouse and Fax are pretty much on a par with London, with TWP having a better squad but with a team spirit that still has to be proven in the face of adversity. It's going to be an awesome couple of months in the M8's.

Rubbish Leigh beat London 40-0 this season, one of 3 wins out of 3 v them.


Who are Leigh? Leave the strong teams in the championship to get on with tackling the SL teams. Enjoy your final.
Mac out!

The Middle 8s is obviously the competition to watch. The Super 8s has pretty much already been decided for the top 4.

I hope Sky can keep giving us TV coverage every week of at least one and possibly two games of the Middle 8s.

Wire played them away last year in the Middle 8s and they were very good then. They actually made a game of every game in the 8s last year and will make an impact on them this year (already have). Fair play to them!


This is true, London were very unlucky in the 8s last season and lost quite a few games by only a few points. They will be difficult to beat at home.

Eloi Pelissier and Jarrod Sammut give the London side that little bit of x factor.

Totally agree, after all London finished a massive 1 point ahead of lousy Leigh. :lol: :lol:
Nice to see your 23 travelling fans enjoy the win. PATHETIC EFFORT. :SUBMISSION:

Granted Pelissier and Sammut had great games today, but they were outshone by Eddie Battye. Sammut hit a great drop goal to win the game, but if he hadn't scuffed the conversion in the first half then that wouldn't have been needed.

A great performance by London, but Jean, try just for once to be all-encompassing with your comments.

You could have said, "Eloi Pelissier and Jarrod Sammut give the London side that little bit of x factor, bolstered by a tremendous man of the match performance by Edward Battye". Doesn't that sound better?
