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

Jeez, this is a tough one to call. Wonder if there will be any scores settled from the other week. I think it max just go to Leeds with home advantage but also I wouldn't be surprised to see the Pies come out on top. Hope it's another belter of a game and Wigan sneak it, if only because they deserve it after a terrific reason, IMO.

I think the Pyemen will take this, Leaving aside all the hysterical drivel that was spouted on here about Mcquire, If Richards had been kicking to his normal standard Wigan would have won, so i would expect them to have the edge without Mcquire playing, It's a big ask for Leeds with three top men out, and it's just the sort of game you can see S Tomkins setting alight. I expect them both to go at it big style, which will be of definite advantage to Saints or hopefully Giants, I recon It's the real reason Saints picked the Giants, they knew there would be no quarter in this game.

Ill go for Wigan in a close one,

These 2 teams have met 4 times this season,

Twice in the normal league, once in the cup and once in the playoffs.

Leeds have won both of the knockout matches, hopefully this one will be no different.

I think there should be a poll about when the first punch up will be

Wigan please.

50% of me wants to be because Wigan finished top and sort of deserve it IMO.
25% of me wants a different Grand Final, even if it is an all Lancashire affair.
25% of me wants Leeds to lose because it's Leeds and they've not been a Champion team in 2010.

On Odsal Top baht 'at.

A spiteful game from start to to finish, leeds to edge it because for once they'll get the big calls from the ref............at last. Phil Clarke not to do his usual pitchside roundup after his vindictive comments mean he heads straight to the sanctuary of the commentary box. Wigan to bottle it......again.

I am hoping that this will be another classic.
The last game was a beauty.
Leeds have so many players who have been there, done that, whereas Wigan can only muster Sam (who never plays badly), an NRL winner, a world cup winner and 3 grand final winners. I can see Wigan winning - they have so many more games than Leeds so far, through being a very efficient scoring machine, we were very good last week and Leeds are missing their 2 best players. Against that, Sinfield is world class and Leeds have talent throughout their 17. Should be in for another treat.
Sadly the only certainty, is that win or lose Bluey will be utterly graceless. Wigan seem to bring the worst out of him.
Can't wait.

Leeds to get up to their usual dirty tricks.

Fights to be started, and left unfinished by various cowards in blue shirts, egged on by the bald no-mark in the stand.

Wigan to win by an enormous margin, and Baldy to blame Phil Clarke.

C'mon Wigan, it's time to put these Yorkshire tosspots to bed.

Blowy and cold in leeds today, let's hope there's a bit of rain thrown into the mix tomorrow so the smelly wigan fans get a wash on the western terrace while their team of cheats and plastic hardmen get blown away on the pitch.

I am not sure the conditions will make much difference either way. I don't recall Wigan being hammered in the Cup. One fewer missed tackle and the job was a good un.
As these teams put on classics on a regular basis I am hoping both for another beauty and a raprochement - Wigan have had to put up with Bluey, Hetherington and Peacock being very cross about us. Given all they have achieved it would be good to let victory or defeat pass without further digs. Madge is doing well in rising above it. Let's get back to 2 classy clubs playing classy and fair rugby.

Going to be a cracker. Will come down to discipline especially with all the build up.

Wigan are not great in that department so for me if Wigan hold their discipline they will win, if they dont Leeds will.

I just hope both sets of fan respect each other and let the talking be done on the pitch.

...and it was discipline that let us down 2 weeks ago. Leeds only got back into the game when, with a 14-0 lead, Wigan started to give away back to back daft penalties for things like markers not square, interference at the PB and off side.

Cut those mistakes out, and Pat's missd goals of course and it would have been a Wigan win.

IF the team learns from that experiance going into tomorrow, and with Leeds now missing McGure as well as Peacock, Wigan have every chance of winning.

biggrin.gif I thought it was only the Wigan v Wire games that brought out this kind of bad blood!

At least now we are out I can enjoy reading the board without getting caught up in it.

Looking forward to this game, as I always do when these two meet, if it's half as good as the one a couple of weeks ago we are in for a treat!
