Thoughts about the game here...if anyone knows how to sticky it, please do so!
Super League, Championship, the play-offs, Challenge Cup, and World Cup.

I see no reason why the league should lie here. Wigan have been pretty dominate this year, Leeds had a bit of a recovery mid season from their awful start, but from the last 2 games that I've seen of Leeds, Wigan have very little to worry about. Leeds just don't seam to have the energy about them that they have had in previous seasons.

Wigan to win by 16
Super League the only place in the world where people still believe that less competitors and a closed market to new competition will improve the quality of the product.

Even the Chinese and the Cubans gave up on these marxist principles years ago.

SL with a reduced number of competitors and a closed market = North Korea.

Wigan 16 Leeds 26

Can Sinfield, Burrow and Buderus play so poorly for 3 games on the bounce, IMO no, hence the above scoreline.

I'm worried by a degree of overconfidence displayed by our fans on other boards - our home form has been shaky at times and Leeds will find some form again soon.

Heart says Wigan, head says too close to call.

A very pivotal game for me as far as the play offs are concerned.If Leeds can find enough form to win at Wigan i would make them favourite to go on and win the grand final.A Wigan win would for me finish Leeds off and really open it up and any from Wigan Wires Saints could go on to win it and I would find almost impossible to split them

Leeds didn't improve last week against us. Fancy Wigan to really get into them early here and run up a score.
Hopefully Bailey will get put on report, and add to his impressive disciplinary pages on the RFL website. Muppet.

I think Leeds will go into the play-offs with a nothing to lose attitude. They are definitely the most dangerous team any side will play,and I wouldn't at all be surprised to see them go all the way and win it again.

Easy win for Wigan. Leeds have lost their mojo and now have no hunger or desire to make the effort needed to win competitions. A change in attitude is the reason Leeds are where they are albeit Peacock who never gives less than 100% is a big loss. McLennan is being found wanting when he needs to step up.

I think Wigan will win because our back 5 is very good indeed, and Deacon will have enough time and space behind a pack able to earn parity to control the play. Leeds have a better pack than Wigan when Peacock and Burgess are fit. WIthout them, and particularly with Hansen back, we should have enough.
Of course Leeds are serial champions and may produce a run of irresistible form, but that would shock me.

On current form it's a difficult one to call. Leeds have been gash the last couple of games but wigan have been less than convincing in home games losing against saints, huddersfield and warrington. Wigan are beatable at home as the results have shown but leeds really need to start stepping up if they are to trouble them. As for a score..............haven't got a clue. My major worry is breaking wigans defensive line to get to the bar in wetherspoons on sunday afternoon, andy gregory seems to manage so i'll just follow him biggrin.gif

Even with a full complement of forwards, I don't think Leeds could handle this current Wigan team in the form they're in. Leeds to lose and possibly stutter out next week.

Leeds by 10.

2010 Warrington 30 Leeds 6
2011 League Leaders Shield Winners
2012 Warrington 35 Leeds 18

Challenge cups and league leaders shields everywhere! We need more silver polish!

Just like Headingley and the challenge cup (and we all know what happened then)

A lot of Yorkshiremen believe that when God created the world, he made it with perfect balance.
He balanced the hot areas with the cold areas. the dry areas with the wet areas.
And, in creating Yorkshire, he created the most glorious place on earth - full of majestic beauty and sporting giants.........and for balance he created....... Lancashire.

Leeds can't score when they're dominant.

I'd like to see a new controlling seven at the club.

Rained all night and still raining. Could be an ugly game and the weather is a great leveller.

Bit disappointed in the bookies on this one. I fancy Wigan by quite a bit but they're not being overgenerous with winning margins. Wigan by 21-30 is only 9/2. Poor odds when you think Leeds are three times GF winners.
