Depends on the team we have out - if we have the Monaghans back in then that's a bonus, otherwise I see us struggling.

A little bird told me that both Monas bros are back along with Chris Bridge, but Trent Waterhouse is out and Rhys Williams drops out.

Warrington to win. We have two non halfbacks at halfback and a bunch of forwards who, barring three of them (assuming Walmsley plays) only ever run sideways and mostly can't be bothered tackling and so we will make very little progress forward thus giving our non halfbacks even less opportunity to show the talent they don't have at halfback. It seems we don't have a goalkicker either unless Percival starts to kick because Turner is useless with kicking duties as we found out last week. On top of all that, we will be as boring as hell unless Percival can work wonders again as he did last week, although I'm sure Smith will have been watching him closely on the vid.

If Michael Mono and his brother "Shep" play Wire by 10
But just read Lance "Who are you" is back so Wire by 20
Good job that fearsome Aussie Prop Perry is missing or i would go Wire by 30

What a bizarre build-up to a Warrington vs Saints match this is.

Has there ever been a match where the majority of both sets of supporters seem to think their team will lose?

A pound on the draw it is then!

I get the feeling that this could be quite an underwhelming game with neither side playing to their potential yet. Our very average start to the season makes it hard to feel the same sense of excitement which is normally present for this fixture.

I expect Warrington will win by a fairly narrow margin but at the same time will never really be under any threat.

Saints have a decent recent record at the HJ, they are also very rarely blown away - they may not be playing with much flair at the moment, but they are still solid enough to frustrate Wire.

We need to get our attacking form back, if we are slightly off then Saints could keep things tight and frustrate us.

While not too much can be read into last week, it was still 3 tries each against Leeds.

Yep - this is the thing, despite Leeds being the better team, it is very difficult to pull away from Saints (although Hudds did a great job of it in Wk1)

I suppose we should engage in the tedious exchange of negative predictions. Saints by 50.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Any idea what's up with Waterhouse, don't think I have read anything about him?
