Can't see Saints pressuring Leeds as much as Hudds did when we had the ball. With a bit more room to work with Leeds should win by a couple of scores. Saints (no matter who is in their team) always seem to find a performance in the league when they play us though. I reckon it'll be closer than a lot think.

This is saints season. Right here.

We have a great record against leeds in the league, but feel that without a recognised 6,7,9 and 13 in the squad we lack the creativity to crack a good defensive team to win it. Think defensivly we can step up but doubt our ability to score the points to secure a win.

It's always thereyear!! Just like the last!!


I hope Leeds don't batter saints as the wires have them at the magic weekend...... Leeds may have an eye on the magic game, but im hoping BM says go out and enjoy game by game lads so i think Leeds could put 40 on saints.

I expect Leeds will win without ever being under too much pressure.  I can't see it being an absolute belting though, we rarely lose by that many and it's not like our defence has been atrocious this year (though our effort in general certainly looks like it needs some improvement).  It's our lack of ability to create anything at all in attack which is the reason why we're in this slump and things seem unlikely to get any better in 2013. 

 

Leeds by 10-18.

In other seasons, this would have been the tie of the round, but the 2013 St Helens would need a big step up in performance to win this.

Peacock and Ablett out injured - probably not enough to even the sides up.

Leeds to win, I don't think competitively it will feel like a close game. I think Leeds will stay in control, probably by one or 2 score.  But I also agree with Mr Fussy.  I can't see a hammering, just a lack of ability to score.

 

If I had to pick a score 24 - 12 for Leeds.  

 

The lack of some big hitters in the pack for Leeds should help keep the score respectable.  Saints lack Strike players through both injury and recruitment.  The 6 and 7 situation will not improve till next season.   But where we do have strike at 9,1 and Meli on the wing, they are all out too.  When you look to the dangermen left for Saints, the only one I can think of is Percival and he's such a young guy.  Basically Saints have to roll up 1-17 and work hard, that's as much as they can offer at the moment.


Super League the only place in the world where people still believe that less competitors and a closed market to new competition will improve the quality of the product.

Even the Chinese and the Cubans gave up on these marxist principles years ago.


SL with a reduced number of competitors and a closed market = North Korea.

Discuss Leeds Rhinos v St Helens here.

St Helens have no half backs on the park. These positions will be covered by a second row forward (Wilkin) and  a retired full back (Wellens) Leeds have some injuries but have the two best half backs in Super league (even if Burrows plays hooker.) Sinfield will play stand off again . The Aussies must be rubbing their hands that he will be stand off for England in the World Cup 2013.
