Note that the team who finishes top, unless it is Catalans, will play in the second semifinal on Saturday. That just isn’t right!

I thought that the league leaders were always given the extra day off . Must be something to do with Channel 4 screening a semi final . They wouldn't cover a game in France. If Catalan get to the final their owner will have to eat humble pie as he vowed never to play another Grand Final if there were English officals

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage. #18thMan
