So, it'll be Wigan's turn to beat Leeds in the final this year then.


                Lee Radford rang me the other week....I knew Hull FC were a bit desperate but I had no idea it had got that bad.

Now let's see - BBC to show Wigan v Castleford and Bradford v Warrington.

 

SKY maybe showing only one of Leeds v Leigh and Widnes v  Keighley Cougars if previous years non-exercising of TV rights is anything to go by

Being an outsider, it is easiest to see what is wrong with the sport. It's a fantastic sport that has been undersold and under-marketed  because people who run it probably want to keep it the way it is

Well, it's not yours, mate!  :blum:

And it's not ours, either!  :(

 

However, as a BBC Blunderside afficionado, you would have appreciated the BBC Leeds announcement I heard (twice!) on my way home yesterday. They listed the teams in the Q-F draw and omitted Widnes while including Salford. I must admit to a fleeting thought that Widnes had played 14 men and been disqualified. Then I realised there's only one team could do that.  :D

Boring draw.

Wigan, Warrington, Leeds and Widnes semi final. Pretty much guarantees a sell out final with the former 3 more than likely taking both Wembley spots.

Good draw for the RFL. Not accusing them of fixing it as they probably didn't and didn't have much need too.

Seems to me the 2nd placed team in the Super League is being written off by most. Fine by us.

Wigan play Thursday against Huddersfield the week before the Challenge Cup, Cas play on the Sunday v Hull KR.
 
Bradford play Sunday and Warrington play Leeds on the Friday night.
 
Wigan have dropped lucky with a good recovery time, be interesting to see if Cas try to change their game to Friday night as there is a good chance the Cas v Wigan game will be on TV on the Saturday giving them a much shorter turn around.
 
Leigh and Keighley both play on the Sunday.

Three of those four games are repeats of past Wembley finals.
