Discuss the game here!

Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

Original build-up thread. I'm not planning to merge the threads as that one is a bit generic and not really that relevant to the specific game.

Leeds 0 Wire a billion.

Ok, not really then. Fairly high scoring encounter, lots of errors due to nerves with the Whinoes pipping it 28-26.

That'll do me! Last minute try out wide to bring the scores level followed by Sinfield kicking it from the touchline. biggrin.gif

3 Grand Final wins on the bounce show Leeds don't bottle the big games anymore.
We, sadly, still have a tendency to, but have won at the new Wembley, will Wembley experience count on the day?
I can see it being down to the odd goal, or even drop goal, hopefully with us as winners, but if not, just hope Silverwood isn't an issue in the final analysis.
I'll enjoy the day/occasion, Wires win will be icing, but not world ending if 3 times Champs Leeds take our cup, we then have to take their title...(which we want anyway. wink.gif )
30-29, to either.

Shaping up to be the best final in decades on paper. Full house, two big name clubs, world class players on show on both sides.

Hard to pick a winner, very close matchup! But Wire will just pip it I feel, with Peacock missing I think we will win it.

You've just got to look at the bookmakers odds to see just how tight they feel the game will be. I honestly couldn't call this one, i just hope it doesn't go down to a bad decision from the ref or video ref that decides it. Let's just hope the game lives up to all the hype and is a great advert for Rugby League.

Agree 100%


Here's to a great final (pray to god we're not let down after all the hype)

Potential for a very high scoring match.


Best wishes to all Rhino's and here's to a wonderful Wembley Weekend.

May the best team win.

Leeds' prop crisis really drags them down, but will they dip far enough for Wire to win?
If the weather is very bad then Wire could win, otherwise Leeds in style.

There will be both pre- and post-match coverage on the red button, probably due to Formula 1 coverage taking up so much of the BBC's time.
From the red button schedule:
  • 1330-1405 Pre-match analysis ahead of the Rugby League Cup Challenge Cup Final between Leeds and Warrington.
  • 1630-1700 Post-match forum following the Rugby League Cup Challenge Cup Final between Leeds and Warrington.

Myler dropped.

Wire team: Mathers Riley Atkins King Hicks Briers Monaghan Morley Clarke Carvell Westwood Louie Harrison. Subs: Wood Higham Solomona Vinnie
With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

I'm tipping Wire will regret dropping Myler and Cooper,
Myler has been criticised for only being a support player but i think that is underestimated, the ability to sniff out a try is an art and not everybody can do it.

Cooper has been playing well and can create second phase play, i would've dropped Higham and Vinnie Anderson, two players who are on their last legs and contribute very little imo.
