the best chance we have ever had of laying the saints super league hoodoo to bed. we should have won at our ground this season and only for going down to 11 men we would have. i predict that the game will be won in the halves with mellor and brown running saints ragged.

With our terrible away form and recent injuries, I cannot see past a Saints win in this game.

We have three players back (two from injury, one from suspension) but lost a new one to injury last week.  We will either have the stunning halfback partnership of Wello and Hohaia or the largely unknown one of Ashe and Hohaia with Wello really ripping up trees at 13 again.  I don't think we have enough to beat Widnes even though Widnes have injury problems themselves.

I also support Philadelphia Phillies and and lastnight they got beat up 14-2 the great Doc Halliday was taken off after 3 inninngs.Saints liken me to Phillies this year.However I think they will take this by 6


but you and I weve been through that and this is not our fate.
So let us so let us not talk falsely now.

We had nothing last week to trouble Wakey and would imagine more of the same playing on grass against even a poor Saints side

Widnes have nothing to lose here. I could see them winning a high scoring thriller.

Having Manu back should add another dimension to our attack.  I think we can pick up the points in this one, we're not a great side at present but I can't see us losing every week.

If there was a thread "most disappointing signing of the season so far", he would be top of my list.

I'm not sure we are playing him in a way to get the best out of him, a bit like we have been playing Laffranchi as prop but in fact he's a second rower with a great offload game that we never use.
