I live outside the heartlands, so unless they plan on bringing it to the opening of St Albans' "stadium", I don't get much chance to see it.

Come on the Rhinos! Do your country proud. I think this will be special. Last Year's game was as good as it got, and this one has every chance of being as good. I think Storm will win, as they have world class players, but it would be wonderful if Sir Kevin gets to show what all the fuss was about and sets England on its way in World Cup year. One things for sure with Leeds, they will leave nothing out there.

Yes but McGuire at 7 this year has been approaching something like just before he did his Knee.Leeds need to keep the trio together.Watkins at FB with Vickery to Alternate
but you and I weve been through that and this is not our fate.

Gareth Widdop must be playing well if he's keeping Brett Finch out.

really looking forward to this and hoping for a Rhinos win big style but too close to call i reckon
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.

He's better than any half back in Super League, the fact he isn't a shoe in for England is a disgrace.

TBF you could play a moose off of Cooper Cronk and he'd look better than the majority of 6's around.

See the games Widdop played whilst Cronk Smith and Slater were on origin duty, he was a stand out.

Agreed.
He is top shelf quality and should be automatic for England, not because he plays in the NRL, because he is a really good player.
He would perhaps look better if he was not a Melbourne and had the chance to shine and be a leading player at another Club.
That time will come I guess.
