Am I the only one who is stunned by the price? I had expected the market to love Warrington and make them 1.3 but 1.2??? Have Catalans refused to turn up?

I would have backed Catalans at anything down to 2/1 so the current price is a total gift for myself.

Warrington have been below par this season and could easily be distracted by their Cup semi on Sunday. Meanwhile, Catalans know that two wins this week would see them three points ahead of Warrington, and look to have guaranteed themselves second spot, which is a huge advantage.

Allez Catalans.

i love betting on super league as the lads involved are as tough as it gets.

However... does anyone else ever get the feeling that players are fully aware of handicap and total points lines?

As a pre-match Cats backer, I'd be happy to cancel my stake now.

"frenchies got to be v happy with that effort" - if they've backed themselves at the odds I agree but presume they're looking to win the game - I'd argue that given wires' lack of penetration in final 3rd cats should be disappointed with their indiscipline and lack of ball retention in the tackle

I still think only one try down after plenty of Wire pressure is a right result from the away team.  OK it wasn't pretty and they didn't do a lot of good themselves in attack but they are well in the hunt still.

impressed with wire's defensive effort tonight. If you man up against cats' pack they look very average, as wire showed in challenge cup.
Report RugbyMan July 9, 2012 9:56 PM BST
It certainly wasn't a bad match by standards set this season. Been some shockers, but this was at least competitive and the players looked like they knew what they were doing.

A few years ago I remember watching very good superleague games most weeks, now its more like 1 in 5. Really disappointing.

Decent game for a change, Catalan will be tough in the playoffs, Wire seem to do just enough, some strange "hometown" decisions as well for good measure!
