Get this one in early since we have the same doom mongering thread every year

Seriously though, unless saints find a couple of half backs then i cant see em troubling Wigan on the scoreboard too much, all the makings off a top match, Saints with their flair, Wigan with their superb defence.

Gonna take something special to break that defence and hold Wigans left side attack.

Sadly no Yorkshire side in there this year so you can have your moment in the sun biggrin.gif

Wigan by 16 for me in front of a packed out Old Trafford

26-10




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.

Haven't Saints just won 8 on the bounce? Not too shabby IMO. They also won the last clash between the 2 clubs and beat Wire twice in the last few weeks. Why is it so obvious that this final be one-sided? They are low on star names but are playing above themselves.

I aint called saints shabby, they win 8 on the bounce without any halfs, noticed the last 2 they have but dont follow closer than that.

Is 26-10 so one sided?

I'm with you mate, Reckon a sell out is on the cards.

I think it'll be a bit closer though, 4-6 points in it, wonder if Saints will bother with Eastmond again. rolleyes.gif

I think the Pies will have too much in defence for Saints, but if any team can find a way through, it's them.

Just looking forward to a great game, not ruled myself out of going yet, will see how the ebay ticket market place shapes up later on this week.

Noticed two available in Huddersfield Lee, you didn't really think you were gonna beat Saints last week did you? tongue.gif

reckon it will be close to a sell out. Personally I reckon Saints will win the final, they really impressed against huddersfield.

I got my ticket at 11:50 after queuing for 2 and a half hours - the queue was still longer as I left than when I arrived. Would be surprised if Wigan have many tickets left for general sale.

No idea how many on general sale, would presume it would be a minimum of 2 per person provided they are still available on Tuesday.

My bad - sounded right in my head - I meant that the maximum per person is likely to be a minimum of 2 tickets, but it depends on the number remaining after ST holders, shareholders and lottery agents have had first dibs.

came away 1.30 after 2.30hrs in the queue and the queue was still to the east stand wacko.gif

What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss
It's only two humans being.
