I would like Wigan to win this. They were top of the league after all.

I have a problem, though. My old internet streamer has stopped and I haven't found a decent replacement, so do I try and search for one tonight? Or do I listen to online radio? Or do I go down the pub and watch on the big screen? Normally, it'd be the pub, but my wife's away so I'd have to drive back home (too far to walk) or get a taxi? Decisions, decisions!

Just remembered, it's Saints tonight blush.gif , but the problem remains the same - for both games.

Hoping for a Leeds win in this one - mainly for Danny Mcguire and Jamie Peacock.


Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

It will be interesting to see how McIllorum goes tonight, and whether Bailey and co will view him as someone to have a go at. Everything I have seen and heard about him suggests that he is a scarily hard man, in a game of hard men. One thing I am hoping is that Joel has learnt his lessons from recent weeks. His childish petulance costs his team dearly and is giving him a very poor reputation. Having seen him play so well last week, striding through and tackling everything that moves, let's hope so. He seems particularly to get riled after head hunters attack Sam, as is almost certain to happen, so let's hope he can rein himself in (and it would be good if Lockers pulled him aside and calmed him down for once).
A couple of slight differences on Wigan's side which could work well - as Deacon looks like he's fit, having him for the full game allows Sam to play 1 and join in when he feels like it, will improve our kicking game and generally bring a steadying influence. If Feca comes in for Tuson then our prop rotation becomes much stronger, and should give us at least parity up front. Leeds of course are missing 2 of their 4 front line props, so are lower in that department. For some reason, we seem more disciplined and effective playing away from home - maybe we simply relish building our victories on defence rather than setting the pace as is expected of the home team.
Finally, the best thing for us maybe for Leeds to score first, so we don't get into our sitting on a lead mode, which seems to be something that we can't do well.

For me Wigan have to be favourites.
They have pretty much a full side out there, where as Leeds are fast running out of bodies.
Leeds have the home advantage and although Nathan Brown does not believe in such things, I think that was more talk for th motivation of his own team.

Home advantage may make little difference to huddersfield as at their home the crowd do not seam to be able to make enough noise to make an impact in such a large ground. But last night you could see how when the noise lifted the players and got on the huddersfield teams backs. I think the south standers are also capable of being the 18th man for Leeds which may just lift them.

I'm sure when kicking goals, goal kickers would rather hear support or quiet rather than abuse and off putting comments when kicking. The same goes for those players who get wound up emotionally who can play up to the crowd when they get on their backs. I'm sure Fielden will be getting lots of comments reminding him of when he used to be a great from Bradford and when he used to be one of the great props in RL. It may only be said to be off putting, but sometimes comments can hit home.


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.

I've been travelling since wednesday, but have finally got to my destination. I missed the match last night and have only just seen the result an hour ago. In the past few days, I've survived 7 rocket attacks, one by only 60 yards and an armoured convoy through Taliban infiltrated countryside.

But I do have a comfy bed here, as much Becks non alcoholoc malt beverage as I can drink and internet access on my laptop, so I'm really looking forward to the match tonight on BBC R5.
Oh, and the Dave/Ed Millipede result too. It's nice to be back to normality again.

Come on Leeds !!!

Ta.

He's up to his nonsensical standards yet again. I really can't believe people are taken in by his ramblings just because he tries to use big-words. Actually no I can understand it, a thin grasp of the English language would make him a God in Lancashire. wink.gif

I couldn't really care less who wins, but that is an absolutely shocking decision from Ben Thaler. Is he registered blind?
And when they found our shadows
Grouped around the TV sets
They ran down every lead
They repeated every test
They checked out all the data on their lists
And then the alien anthropologists
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
For our sad demise
They logged the only explanation left
This species has amused itself to death
No tears to cry no feelings left
This species has amused itself to death
