Toronto up
They are playing Catalans Dragons in Perpignan on 11/04/20, and on 27/06/20, and in Toronto on 29/08/20.

I should be at the games in Perpignan. I wouldn't mind the trip to Toronto but I'm not that mad about the egg-chasing.

FFS, Catalans. What you signed that c*** for? I need a new team, either Toronto or Toulouse I think. Can't seem to find a Midlands team that is high enough up the league to enable me to get score alerts (or, occasionally, watch them on TV).

I know that this is just 'the Northern game', so nothing to get too excited about but ..........WTF Catalans, why go anywhere near that idiot?

Wigan made hard work of seeing off a Warrington team who had a man sent off.

If it helps you not be a fickle bastard, SWMBO's boss, insisted on a clause in Folau's contract whereby it will be terminated if he says anything homophobic.

He's already said plenty homophobic. People are entitled to make mistakes and learn from them. However, he has shown no repentance. It's a disgraceful signing. I was never exactly a die hard fan, cheering them on from the comfort of the settee. Now I'm not a fan at all.

That's quite understandable. I sort of have to be a fan. We shall see if he shuts his gob and gets on with egg-chasing.

Shame if he's going anywhere he goes to the Super League.  Could've done with him staying in OZ so we could have him back in the Queensland State of Origin side.

I do wish they hadn't bought him too. On the other hand, the Dragons have never had so much media attention.

I was going to go down tomorrow to see how the opening match against 'uddersfield panned out but after another op yesterday whereby my tubes were assaulted via the old bratwurst, I'm giving it a miss.

I'll be at Headingley today for the Toronto v Cas and Leeds v Hull double header. Interesting concept to have fans of three clubs in the stadium of one. Wonder how many Cas fans will stick around for the second match. Bloke who bought the tickets is actually a Bulls fan but is going to Headingley for the Sonny Bill factor. Fingers crossed he actually plays.

It's one of Toronto's home games. Too cold to play in Canada at this time of year. I've heard Super League have been less accommodating about how they structure their season to stack the home games in batches to avoid the weather. Their other UK home game is at Saracens. Perhaps they can pick up some tips on creative accounting.

Edit- I'm out of date with it, they're not playing at Saracens any more. Playing at Warrington instead.

Why is Toronto vs Castleford at Headingley?

Because Leeds is a rugby league town.
