Even though it was a incredibly cheap looking screenshot after the programme had finished, it did say live on BBC and BBC HD.

I always go for the underdog in situations like this, so that'll be Warrington. Fairly disappointing underdogs today though.

I'd have thought so too. Especially as Warrington are the current CC holders.

I'm going to try to remain neutral but I think if they play the form the were in today Wires will be to good for Leeds & win by 4-6 points. Although I don't think either team will get over 30 points.

Following Warrington's victory in the Carnegie Challenge Cup semi final, it has been confirmed at that the Rhinos will wear our away kit at Wembley because of the clash of colours between the two clubs.

http://www.therhinos.../news/14618.php

Leeds wore this kit last month at the HJ Stadium and there was still a colour clash with Wire's primrose and blue!!!!!

Wire should have been made to play in red and green, it would make it a lot easier on TV.

Don't get me wrong, Ray French talks a lot of sense about RL. He really does. His weekly column is one of the few good things in the League Weekly. Unfortunately, as a commentator his best days are well behind him. His player recognition is at times embarrassing. If he were commentating on a more high profile sport, he would've gone years ago.

Just a point about the Leeds away kit. Do away kits have to be a different colour from the main kit, because the Leeds one seems to be just a variation of the normal colours. As shown with the clash with Warrington's kit, it's no real alternative to the home one.

I thought that, as an away kit this proves it doesn't work. Although they are used differently nowadays, they are still meant to be used when a colour clash occurs. However their kit still results in just as bad a colour clash.

If the RFL had any sense they would switch this right away, to Wire's genuine away kit.

Agreed, but should Leeds have had a better alternative kit? I seem to remember Bradford made a kit (yellow?) especially for the 1997 CC final when their kit clashed with that of St Helens.

Not to worry - Dave Woods is commentating on the final, as he did last year. Ray has "retired" from doing the finals and is the BBC's second choice commentator and Dave Woods is first.
