Are you two going to the game tonight?

Or will you both be up a tree; k-i-s-s-i-n-g?

:P :P


OI!

Yes, I'll be going and looking for Harrigan with "I <3 @OfficialBullsRL " on his shirt (if the Rhinos will allow that in their club shop) :D

I think the state of the pitch might be crucial. If it is heavy, we are a bit lightweight up front with only three props.
We will need to capitalise on the guile of LeStrange and the unpredictability of Sammut.
Fortunately, Foster is as tall as Hall and so the crucial Leeds LHS crosskick can be contested.

Not confident, but Bulls by four.

Don't mention the pitch!

It cost a million quid did that, bestest eva.

And I think Foster will line up on our left wing, so it'll be Kear (or perhaps Purtell) up against Hall.

I think they'll switch Foster and Kear because of the aerial threat, with Purtell in the centre and Chev at LF.

No idea, actual options for the first time this season.

Part of me thinks Cummins will revert to the line-ups from rounds 1 and 2, with Kearney at 6 and Purtell replacing Platt on the wing.

Or he'll keep it relatively the same and just chop the bench and Kear. I can't decide what would be our best side and certainly aren't many who deserve dropping, i.e. Donaldson, Kear or Addy. Although I think Murphy should be, too big a game too early for him.

Does because you haven't seen it, doesn't mean it hasn't happened! Think we'll have to agree to disagree, far more important things to argue about, like the match!


Well as I am usually sat next to him as he's typing... ;)

OK, what shall we argue about? Plus I gave in on shirt printing years ago. Every player I had on my shirt left :lol:

Agree with that. Leeds were only fifth last year against our sixth [before deduction] and [I know they've played fewer games] currently below us. They have a generally more expesively put together squad, are at home and obviously must start favourites, but are indeed far from invincible.

As a pedant looking in I can't resist pointing out that it would have been seventh. Bradford's playing record added up to 29 points. Leeds and Hull finished with 32.

I'm thinking either Brett Kearney or Danny McGuire as anytime try scorer. Anyone else having a little flutter?

Kearneys a fairly safe bet. Last week was first game this season he wasn't on score sheet

I'll be hoping for a Bulls win but just can't see it somehow......could be close though with Sir Kev's boot being the clincher

24 second try, one of the fastest in the SL era I presume. Decent play by Watkins.

Been watching two minutes and the feckin' drum and trumpet are already doing my head in. Is the crowd mic on louder?! I can barely hear the commentary (I know people will say that's a blessing, but I'd rather hear Stevo than Leeds fans singing!).
