Money can't buy happiness... but it can buy bacon which is close enough.

That said, this could put Leeds only 3 pts behind us, and with the Semi as a distraction, it could make things very tense, so I'd also be pretty happy with a Wigan win!
Can't lose really. Until Saturday!

I was interested to read that Leeds have a full team out. Given the importance of the semi final the week after, and that Leeds should make 4th win or lose, I am puzzled by that, as I would have thought if ever there was a chance to rest players it would be Friday. Each team that has beaten Wigan this year has lost 1 of their next 2 games, which suggests to me that beating us takes a lot out of a team.
Really looking forward to the game, and hoping it is relatively dry. Wigan looked much better balanced with Deacon at 7 and Sam alternating between 1 and 6, and with 4 props to take on the battle up front.
Leeds are a classy club and a classy team, and are a better team than Wigan, so would ordinarily win. Given the proximity of the semi I think Wigan will win. If Leeds do win they will need to put a lot in and they are likely to suffer next week.

Leeds rested a few last week against Salford
EDIT: Also, Leeds beat Wigan in the CC and won the next 2 games

Unless your stats only work when talking about the same competition, as we haven't won the following 2 CC matches (yet)

Think the semi final the week after will be crucial and does give Wigan the edge...

Wigan will have nothing left in the tank after that bruising, gruelling effort at the KC last week.
