Widnes Vikings secured an automatic return to the Betfred Super League for 2018 following a 12-10 victory over Catalans Dragons in Perpignan.
And it was the first time Widnes have won in the South of France while Denis Betts has been in charge.
With Warrington Wolves, Hull Kingston Rovers and Widnes securing their place in the top flight for next season, it means that Leigh Centurions and Catalans will battle it out in the Million Pound Game this weekend at the Leigh Sports Village for the final place in Super League for next season.
Here’s how you reacted to Catalans being condemned to the Million Pound game on Twitter:
Catalans are facing the undeniable embarrassment of losing the MPG and dropping down to the Championship. Steve McNamara. Unbelievable.

Didn’t I tell you all before the Super 8s it’d be a Leigh-Catalans MPG? #neverindoubt ?

79 mins in, Catalans had to choose between kicking for a home MPG or going all or nothing for a try. How can you not love Super 8s #SLCatWid

Not about that for me. Catalans put themselves in this position, one of the richest teams in SL in the MPG? Don’t deserve to be in SL.

Catalans Dragons in the million pound game. Looking very likely there’ll be 2 French teams, a Canadian team and London in the Championship.

Tony Smith says it’d be a “disaster” for the growth of the game if Catalans Dragons are relegated from Super League @leagueexpress

What an end to the game. Dragons vs Centurions in the MPG. I’m just glad it isn’t Salford! #SLCATWID
