My Leigh supporting colleague insist that this is a 'nothing game', 'meaningless'. Looks like the teams think different.


A childish Leigh fan, eh? Who'da thunk it.

Looks like they're well on the way to winning this one, good stuff.

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.

I look around
I search the skies
I shade my eyes
So nearly blind
And I see signs of half remembered days
I hear bells that chime in strange familiar ways
I recognise...

Looks like eagles have done our trick. Too consistent for their own good and burn out come the business end of the season.

So basically not being good enough to win trophies?

 

I say this as a Wire fan who has seen his team not be good enough to win the SL Trophy.

I wouldn't say that. I think us and the eagles are the best/most consistent teams in the championship. Its just the one off games that seem to catch us out.with the play off system the way it is you can win all your games all season and IMO if you win the league you are the best team in that division then that one off final game can catch you out.

I didn't suggest you weren't the best team, but that you weren't good enough to win the trophies, as you don't win the trophies by being great week in week out.

 

You need to be good all season and then perform in the high pressure games.

I agree dave but as you know anything can happen in a final.

Mcnaly up to his usual trick of throwing an elbow when tackled, horrible little #####. Maden should be hammered for that too.

 

Laughed long and hard when he copped one himself a few minutes later, and then cried like a baby.

 

Good win though for Leigh, let's call it advanced consolation for the usual pain we'll dish them out in the playoffs :ph34r:

Sheffield have been an odd team for 3 or 4 season now.

I think this is the first time they have taken the NRC seriously.
In the past they've started the season very slowly to the point were they have always used the NRC as a way to get fit for the league campaign.This season it looks like they've started the season at full pelt and come unstuck tonight,the last 20 minutes they were shocking.
Tubbs has got his worked cut out to recover from that tonight.

So, with twice as many NRC wins and a newer ground than Widnes, what does this mean for Leigh in 2015?

Enjoyed the game greatly.

With a man off for each side, possession would be key and Leigh had it in the last quarter.

Worst crowd for a final by a bit of a distance. I liked the ground but was it the right move to take the game to Halifax?

Flew back from Sweden on Friday to make sure I was back for the game. Fair to say it was worth the effort!

It means that they'll be in the Championship, where they belong.

Swapping a winger for a prop was like swapping a pawn for a queen at chess.
