Saints looked to me like a team discovering itself in tehir wonderful win on Monday, while Wire looked like a team with issues on Friday. Should be a cracker and Saints can draw on their vast store of happy derbies to sneak it.

Warrington very rarely lose two on the bounce. Wire by 16

Well, I no longer have any idea as to what our chances are in this match.  I was pretty certain we would lose before we beat Leeds but now I just don't know.  I think we have Hohaia back for Saturday and maybe Robes too, but that's just a maybe.  So far as I know, everyone came out of the Leeds game in tact and nobody has been banned so we should play pretty much the same team for two weeks in a row, unless stupid Brown starts messing about with people again and screwing everybody up. 

 

We have beaten Warrington once already this season but that was with Robes and Lomax in the side. 

 

Who knows.  I've no idea who will win.

i dont think we quite had issues, but we need the halfback link to tighten up and m monaghan to play well.
We saw little of tge great link play we are good at, a massive pitch like mc would be a great place to get this back.

Last year we ended a slump with back to back wins against Leeds and Warrington and I'm hopeful that history will repeat itself.

 

I agree with EW about our past dominance of this fixture still being a factor.  Even though the results have been fairly evenly split between us over the last few years I always get the impression that Warrington are still a bit uncomfortable playing us and struggle to put us to bed when in a position to do so (although they certainly came good when it mattered in the playoffs last year).  If the feel good factor carries over from Monday night then I can see us getting a narrow win in this one.

I had not appreciated that Roby was ready to come back. For England's sakes I think the break was exactly what he needed. We'll need him fresh in October and November.
In all sports we like to see evenly matched teams at each other's throats for the duration. I can't see anyone leaving early on Saturday.

If Wellens is out now as well I've got to take Wire here by 10+. Hohaia being back isn't of much benefit to Saints.

Hohaia is due to play at fullback, which is the position he played in when he won the world cup with NZ, so I would imagine he will be of benefit to us!

Apart from him being awful under the high ball.

Keith Senior started centre for Leeds when they won the 2008 GF. Doesn't mean he will be any benefit to them if he starts there on Sunday ;)
