According to Sportinglife.com and BBC teletext, the crowd was 846.

I know they only have three sides, but not sure about that! Add another digit.
Super League, Championship, the play-offs, Challenge Cup, and World Cup.

Leeds were a disorganized shambles, it was the worst performance I have ever seen from Sinfield and Peacock.

Not suprised by this result. KR have an exellent pack and an injury free pack which is playing very well. Leeds on the other hand have played in two very physical games in the last two weeks and looked very very flat against Saints last week. Injurys to Eastwood and Buderus who have been there stand out players in the pack in last two weeks didnt help. Leeds tend to struggle for go forward when Leuluea is out and are a totally different team with Buderus on the park. With The only 'real go forward' from potentially Peacock I felt this would be a game too far for Leeds. Leeds main concern was getting go forward and with the excellent kicking game and pressure applied by KR it was an uphill stuggle and always looked like KR's night. Leeds will concentrate on getting palyers fit and tuned up for the semi against Saints which I am very confident they will win. I would expect Leeds to have a rocky ride for a while until they challenge cup is over. Injury permitting they will be back but if they are to take any silver ware this season I am sure it will be through hard work and well deserved after the injury hit season we have had.
Generally over the last three years we have not had too many injuries but this year they have all come at once.
If they manage to get to the grand final I have a feeling it will definately be from outside the six !

Well done Justin Morgan, your game plan was spot on and well executed ! But as a Leeds fan I wont be loosing any sleep just yet !

Interesting to see Saints lost at home to Catalans another result I predicted. No team can come out week after week and play at the top of there game and no team can stay injury free every week. Sometimes these so called turn ups can be predicted, sometimes they cant !!!!

Upwards and onwards ! wink.gif wink.gif wink.gif
