What are everyone’s expectations for Sunday?

 

Mine are for:

  • Some banter with a fans from a club that closely resembles ours, i.e. trying to improve on what they have and to be in a situation to aim for SL if the opportunity allows.
  • Maybe make friends with Carlie Caroli
  • A few good beers with the brethren (to take 1000+ to an away game that is not a final will be fantastic and probably noy seen since widnes got promoted)
  • To watch a close encounter with a team that is probably our biggest rivals at this point in time
  • To come away with a win (would be nice but I’ll be happy with three out of the 1st four)

 

So what are your expectations for Sunday?


I'm sure I'll think of something funny to say soon.

Frank,

 

I Can't wait for both games. We'll let you win this week if you let us win a week on Sunday by 13+ points ;)


I'm sure I'll think of something funny to say soon.

Speaking as a Warrington fan, I think it shows just how little the BBC knows about the game that this fixture isn't being televised. It would have been a great way to let people see that there is genuine depth in the sport, despite what is often said. Two good sides, nice stadium, probably a decent atmosphere with Fev's travelling support, and a really impossible to call contest. Missed opportunity.

Quite agree Wireagle, hopefully it will be a bigger crowd because of the fact that there is no TV coverage

I agree that it's difficult to call. For a start, the lack of TV games from the Championship this year means it's harder to keep up with other teams' strengths and weaknesses this year, and the formlines, especially those involving those teams from the lower half of the division, are all over the place. Also, feedback from both sets of fans suggest there has been a big difference in both teams between their best efforts this year and their worst. My hope is that Fev have been at their best in recent times when seemingly up against it - people talk about us losing big games we were expected to win, which is true, but we seem to rise to the occasion when faced with what seems a stiff task (pre-season v SL teams, last year when needing to deny Sheffield a bonus point, the 3 cup games against SL opposition etc). Not sure what to expect, to be honest, which is what makes it so interesting.

I am hoping for a classic with a ref we don't notice. I expect a Big gate too, if you top 1000 there will be well over 4000 on and we may see near 5000. It will be good to have 3 stands open and well populated, whoever wins I want them to draw the winners of Swinton/Keighley in the quarters.

Have a safe journey and enjoy the occasion

I agree the BBC have missed a trick with the game on Sunday, the 2 best teams outside the Super League, to close to call and what promises to be a fantastic atmosphere.

Really looking forward to a good hard game. The whole Town of Leigh is buzzing, lets hope the Ref is'nt making the headlines.

Best of luck.

agreed Bobby H.... if it's not a great/close game I'll be amazed. If Leigh (us) win 1 of the next 2 games v Fev, I'll be happy. Obviously the CC it's only a matter of time before a championship side get's knocked out, but for either side, would be great to make the last eight. And I'm pretty sure us or Fev wouldn't do a Bradford if we had to meet Wigan Pies later on in the comp.  !!!  ;)

You can pay on day but most have got their tickets early as it was cheaper to get a ticket from the club rather than pay on the gate - dont know if the club have any tickets left

We have been given the south stand

530 would be the 10 club coaches - there will be at least 4 more plus all of us car travellers.
