I've got a feeling Hull will do everything they should have done last Saturday, and Wigan will be suffering the traditional post-Wembley wobble.

Wigan will be without a few of the Wembley players I would imagine. Lockers wasn't fully fit and Goulding got a head injury. I think Shaun Wane will rest a few ready for the Leeds match before the play offs.

Hull will win this. Wembleyitus along with Wane resting a number of the team will probably make sure of that.

I think Wane resting players is the wrong approach here as the team has lacked momentum and consistency over the last month or so. We should be trying to build form.

Regardless though, if we keep playing like we did on Saturday we won't trouble anyone in the playoffs.

i think wigan will want to carry on were they left off and make a statement,i hope hull make  it a close game but it will be hard to bounce back from the last game with nerves a plenty. should be a cracking game but i think wigan will win 32-14. i did have a chunk a change on hull to win last week by mind 10. :pickeat:  so what do i know.

I'm old enough to remember the days when teams were fined for playing weakened sides.

It's disappointing as a fan because I want to go and see the first choice players play, however I do understand why coaches do this. Wigan have finished in the top half of the table already, so to a coach this is a meaningless match and he can rest players before the playoff matches. I do expect Wigan to play a full strength team against Leeds next Thursday as a warm up match for the playoffs.

Weren't Saints a disgrace for doing this?
Rugby League is a sport that desperately needs to expand its geographical supporter base and its player base. This imperative means that all other requirements are secondary until this is done.

All power in the game should be with governing bodies, especially international governing bodies.

Without these actions we will remain a minor sport internationally and nationally.

I think Saints were a disgrace because people thought they were putting out a strong squad when really they put out a bunch of kids on game day. That's what lead to the squad announcement system, which seems pointless now if teams are just going to announce they're putting out a bunch of kids!

You may be correct. Hull have a fair few players out also, due to injuries and suspension from their Wembley "effort".

 

I think it will be fairly close but Hull will be fielding their most competitive side as they can't really afford to do anything else so, having seen the Wigan team, I'll be disappointed* if we don't pinch the points here.
