Can't call this one. If Leeds don't turn up, then Saints could thump them.
This is the interesting bit of the season. The rest is just jockeying for league position to give yourself the best chance in the play offs.
Either way should be great. Get there.
Can't wait.

Hard to call this one. Think leeds will edge it in a tight close game. think its got the makings of a classic with leeds coming off the back of a defeat and wanting to make up for it and saints hitting a bit of form and they always up their game against us. Roll on Friday!

mmmm haven't saints won the last x3 visits to Headingley......  hard one to call but I have sneaky feeling for saints, although my Leeds supporting wife and daughters will not be happy although my saints supporting son will be.

 

me..... yep, I'm on the fence... never one to want to upset anyone.... so I won't tell the missus I'm going for saints on this occasion.

Means nothing, that (alas!).  Wigan beat us 4 times during the regular season in 2011 and we knocked them out (twice) in the play offs.  Didn't Hudds beat Wigan twice during this season?  But they could hardly cope with Wigan last weekend.  Tis all a different ballgame at this time of year and I haven't a clue who will win on Friday.

It maybe wild, it may make no sense, but Saints all the way. COYS!!!!!


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.

aaaah yep. that was great those wins against Wigan... especially the second as I just didn't think could do it again....

It was hard sitting between my son (saints) and my wife (Leeds) at Old Trafford.....

on a side note I just wish they would change the pie's at old trafford, must be amongst the worst at any sporting venue. Shall have to take my own this year me thinks, even if cold.

 

I'm sticking with saints to beat Leeds in a "close encounter"..... must admit this play off game is really getting me excited....

I'm not confident that Leeds will beat Saints,in fact I think Saints will play well and win.However when I have this feeling they turn up and win.It has happened before several times
but you and I weve been through that and this is not our fate.
So let us so let us not talk falsely now.

Apparently Saints have sold close to 2,000 tickets - good following on the cards for a Friday night, cross-pennines play-off game.
