It's not Toulouse fault that some clubs refuse to go there.
In my opinion Toulouse should be awarded the win by 24-0

Only London have refused, part time clubs don't have to go yet as quarantine would mean a number if players can't go.
That sends out mixed messages to me from the RFL. This could well turn out to be nightmare for the RFL at the end of the season

Championship continues to produce close competitive games, Batley flying at the moment.

League One kicked off today, good wins for Workington at Hunslet and Keighley over Doncaster.

Having seen most of the tries of the championship. God Widnes's defence was absolutely atrocious, quite a few of the Toulouse tries were far to easy.
Good to see that Kieran Dixon's defence hasn't improved.

I saw the Dixon.......errrr.....efforts The first one was bizarre. Still doubtless he will burn Bradford with the ball (again) when the York games come round.

I see Toulouse now have Tony Gigot on board, in fairness a very dangerous side when they click and passes go to hand.

In my opinion i think Toulouse are the best side in the championship and will win the league

This year's challenge cup final will between St Helens and Castleford.  After they won there semi finals quite comfortably after surviving a bit of a scare comebacks. But they were both really in control.


And congratulations to the BBC for showing the women's challenge cup final (St Helens winning), a decent game that will know hopefully push the sport forward and attract a few more spectators and players to the game.

Around half way through the season and the RFL will scrap the new ball steal rule from next year. Please just please stop phaffing around with the rules all is needed IMO is to clean up the rucks.

They've need to clean up the rucks for years, and are no closer to doing it. The rest I agree, stop changing the rules just for change sake.

I haven't been happy with the constant rule changes for some and i don't suppose I'm alone.
Make a rule and stick with it

George Williams confirmed as heading back to the UK soon. Interesting and classy decision by Wigan to allow him to sign for another club, could have had another Iestyn Harris situation that frankly I would not wish on anyone.

Indeed, but i wonder as well if Wigan have a big player signing coming in for next season so didn't want to use up a a faie bit of the salary cap on Williams? Just saying

I find it weird. 
That England v all stars on Friday, a sort if international.  And the club's are playing a full round (covid apart), including 3 on the night. Seems counter productive to me.

Going back to that issue. I am not sure of the truth however it has been reported that the clubs knew of the international date and made the decision to play games that day/weekend.

Some suggestions that clubs have been trying to to avoid releasing players for the game.

I am in the club that the national team is very important and a good world cup could boost the club game. If the above is correct it seems a bit short sighted, granted All Stars is not ideal but what else can they do?

Like I said, don't get it either.  
If you are putting fixtures on the same weekend, play them on the Sunday so this is a stand alone game, with at least a day to reflect before continuing the sl season.
