Apparently, Catalans will play with Ben Pomeroy at Wing and Millard at Centre. Starting props are Lima and Simon, Barthau and Pryce at halves. 

Two good contests with Pelissier/Monaghan and Russel/Escaré.

Not sure about the score but i think Simon will give us some joy. He has been playing in reserve for too long this season, he's far better than Elima IMO (what a #####...). I expect big match from Big Bousquet and i hope J.Guasch doesn't play (5ft hooker...)

Like Cider Wire said before last week's game, this is impossible to predict.  My head as well as my heart says a win for Wire, but Cats are going to win away sometime, and I wouldn't be surprised if they did it here.

Jeez, a mid-table four pointer!

 

The loser will possibly end up 10th at the end of the weekend, not good enough for either club I'm sure.

 

As a Wire fan, desperate for a win to keep us in touch with that top 4. A good run at this part of the season and a few losses for the top 4 and things suddenly start to look a touch better, but we need to start shaping up!

Not a clue, a bit like the Warrington kicking game.

Just hope our pack push them back and defend well.


We've no chance if our kicking game doesn't improve.

Other issue is who's going to lead the team around the park, we lack direction when in critical field position.

Dreading tonight to be fair and as dave t points out we could be tenth come magic weekend... Well someone has to be and we've had it good for a few years.

It's about time the red button was used to stop this and make everyone happy, including any sponsors of either game

No explanation offered during the rounders and no fekin apology from the barstewards when they finally get around to going where they have advertised.

 

Arrogance in the extreme for these two hats.

We still got 15 minutes build up, cut short due to a delayed live sport over-running. Not a big issue really is it?

Crowds were down last year and even further this year, not really sure how much effort the club are making at the moment.

 

I went on the club website today and the lead story wasn't about this game and ticket it was about an U16 game at Wilderspool being sold out.

It's a shame , the crowds were great a few years ago (hence the expansion to the stadium) but have dropped off below 10k again. Maybe they;ll pick up if the team does.
