If Peacock is missing, I think Wigan will prevail. It's an important game for us for many reasons, not least because we are 1 point from 6 against Leeds, Wire and the Giants (though 100% against everyone else).

Being one of the old school who enjoys and sets store by the regular season, this would go some way to setting us up to top the league.

Peacock is out for at least 8 weeks.

Wigan seem to be scoring points for fun,it doesn't bode well for Leeds.

I'm torn

On one hand I want Wigan to lose so the Giants can possibly close the gap

On the other hand I want Leeds to lose so a gap will open up.

Nil nil draw with both teams deducted league points?

Wigan for me, Leeds are not at their best at the moment, If they were i would think it would be a bit harder for Wigan  but  would still expect them to win. Leeds are saving themselves for the playoffs :tongue:

I'll have my cake and eat it thanks, plus a cherry on top. That means:-

 

Blood youngsters whilst the experience is still there

Rest the old guard

Stop some of the old guard from getting to comfortable

 

Injury shouldn't be the only reason JP misses games

Quite true but we are not the coaching staff.

Wanes has learnt his lessons from last season and is not shuffling the whole team about to put lockers at 6 which then puts everyone else out of position. Smith apparently will play with Powell so I do not expect to much disruption. Leeds got their own way in the forwards last time and out and should have been out of site at half time. I don't think they will get that level of go forward this time (I hope) and there will be far more parity and on current form Wigan should sneak it but this will be close as they usually always are. Peacock is a big miss but Leeds have other forwards who will step up to the mark and I think JJB is awesome when in form which he is at the moment. Stop him & Bailey roaming up front you stop leeds as burrow and danny then have no time or space. looking forward to a great game.

Wigan have beaten all of the top sides already this year so don't expect them to be troubled by Leeds.

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.
