    I don't think Toulouse would be much chance of being promoted this year, but that middle 8's experience would be huge for the club going in to next season and good experience for some World Cup players. Come on Toulouse (and Hull KR)! Let's get that french derby.

    Side note, I read elsewhere that it would be a Catalans home "derby" if Toulouse do scrape in.

    Anyone being promoted kind of depends on a combination of good luck and perfect form, and hoping for the exact opposite to hit the SL teams. Last year proved it's possible.

    I'd trust Toulouse to win and KR to win. It's just margins that it comes down to.

    Not strictly SL but I reckon Middle 8s news belongs in here for now

    3rd placed Championship club Featherstone has sacked their coach 2 weeks out from the Middle 8s.

    Not necessarily. Dull KR may decide to rest anyone carrying a niggle. The cynic in me also thinks that if they do that and lose they won't be too disappointed to see the only team to beat them this year lose out on the 8s.

    Here's hoping.

    Don't think margins will be an issue if the wins fall the right way.

    Yeah I just looked at the ladder, Toulouse are 50 points or so to the better in terms of points differential.

    Featherstone sacking their coach in 3rd position? They're kidding themselves.

    I hope Toulouse get in just for the chance of an all-French tie in the middle 8's

    By your own logic probably one of Widnes, Leigh or Dull KR.

    Please explain? I was just asking a question so hopefully someone with more knowledge than me could give an educated reply.
