Bump!

So WIgan through to the Grand Final, with St Helens vs Catalans about to kick off.

I'd love to see Catalans get up, but think its Wigan's to lose this year.

So unlikely to happen, but we would face St Helens in the WCC.

First time since 2000!

I only saw snippets, not the whole game, but from what I saw the last few seconds was the only real highlight. Dour defence and no real flair in attack.

I watched the Challenge Cup final too, same thing, the English players seem very tough and can defend but lack that spark in attack you see in Australia.

Seems short sighted by Super League and clubs. Vote Toronto Wolfpack out because they bring "no value" to Super League and then they admit Leigh.

Nothing against Leigh but Super League not exactly looking at expansion.

So...2021 GF qualifiers are Catalans v Hull KR and St Helens v Leeds.

Really hoping Catalans can win it all.

I'd love to see Robins get there. I's been a looong time between drinks for us.

Visiting this thread always makes me a bit sad while bringing a half smile to my face at the same time as I remember a good friend passed on.

Vale Bourbon Rat. A good Wigan lad through and through.

Toulouse have won the million pound game to be promoted to Super League. A couple of ex-Storm players played for Toulouse - Mitch Garbutt and Jy Hitchcox.

Dane Chisholm played in the game for Featherstone Rovers.
