Leeds looked impressive against the Cats. They have played one game fewer which should ensure they make advantage pay.

Leeds defensive line speed this season has been the best I have ever seen in SL. Even when Hudds "stuffed" us, it was the kicking game that did it. It will be a close game but I can't see Wire anhialating us. Also, we are 4 points off the top with 2 games in hand (Widnes and Wakefield). We may be 7th but it has no reflection on how we have played at all. We may have been poor with ball in hand, but Huddersfield apart, teams are struggling to put points on us. I reckon another low scoring, close game.

Leeds by 4 (18-14)

Leeds defensive speed isn't half helped by being a couple of yards offside and getting away with it ;)

Depens which Warrington shows up - if they play like they did against us on Monday, Leeds will have a VERY nice day!

The targeting of players in the Leeds back line was also a factor in the win for the Giants.

How were Leeds poor exactly? We played the conditions well, great defensive effort, took the chances when we got them. It had been torrential rain all day leading up to the match, the pitch was very wet, handling would have been difficult.

Don't worry,he's always like this upto about halfway in the season,then the slide begins and he vanishes ;)

Hello everyone. New to this site. Looks like a clean forum, think I'll stay :)

Ratchford's doing a good job kicking in place of Briers, but Sinfield is dangerous as always. Kicking game is always big for these two. However, Leeds usually has hits & misses during the regular season, but always tops the finals.

With that said, I call this a draw or at least a very close game, within 6 points.

Was a bit worried about this one until I found out someone had nicked a Leeds trainer's laptop. Confident again now.

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.

Where are you in USA?I'm in Phila

 

I'm in Boise, Idaho.  They really love American football & hockey here.  I'm the odd one that likes rugby, especially Super League & NRL.  Not a huge fan of Union or Sevens.  Personally I think they should call RFL & NRL the "Rugby Fortys" :D

 

Finally got to watch Leeds & Catalan last night on my DVR.  Peacock looked really tired, Sinfield hurt his left hand, and Bailey had a serious moment of madness.  What was he thinking with that shoulder charge?  Bosc is one tough man!  I'm going to change my previous prediction to Wolves winning by 8.
