Having seen the leeds squad for wembley it would appear Brian Mclennan has two tough choices to make. Lee smith or scott donald on the wing is a difficult call but having to choose between young Clarkson or Carl Ablett is a nightmare. Does he go with the young lad who has performed so well in Abletts absence or does he bring Ablett back after his layoff. These are the decisions that coaches lose sleep over that's for sure.

Leeds have to take a gamble with Peacock out. They could have a potential matchwinner in that young guy Clarkson or do they go with a solid, reliable plodder like Ablett?

Think I read an article with Clarkson saying his favoured position was second row so maybe with Peacock and Burgess out he'll use him as an interchange? Either way, I'd love to see him get his shot at a Wembley appearance as he looks really promising and a nice kid to boot, he's earned it.
