Worried about this one, as we see in semi finals recent form means nowt.

Leeds seem to have been out of form for most of the season.
They will try and raise their game but I'm not sure if they can.
I think Wire will have more than enough to beat this Leeds team.

I would like Wire to win, but would not be upset if Leeds prevail. This is such a good game, and would have made a worthy final. Given how the Wembley finals worked out, I expect Wire to draw on those positive experiences to blitz Leeds and win with a bit to spare. Can't wait - my dream outcome would be a game to equal the Leeds - Saints semi of the mid noughties with Wire pinching it in extra time. However it goes, I am sure it will be a reminder as to why we love this great game.

Smith will have some difficult choices cannot see all of Russell/Ratchford/Bridge/Obrien/Myler all being in the 17.

Also does he select grix . The 17 last week plus Westwood/Russell/Atkins and laithwaite will mean 4 left out of the 17 this week.

I think it all depends on who Smudger chooses to be his 6 and 7, personally I like the Ratchford and Bridge combo.

 

Too close to call, but if Wire can contain Rob Burrow and Danny Maguire (if both playing) we stand a good chance.

Received the tickets in the post today, so I'm getting quite excited now.  This should be quite close and is made a little less predictable given that both teams are going well but are not quite at the top of their game.  Before the wobbles against Widnes & Wakefield I'd have been quite confident about Warrington but I'm not so sure now.

Never ever write off Leeds! Close to call- i think that the Hull defeat last year will be a big spur and for Leeds they are desparate to break their CC hoodoo from recent years.

Hope for a classic- but whoever prevails I think that Cas will be so up for it that they will need a top performance from who they meet in the final to beat them (Sorry Widnes!)

Rumours are that Ormsby  will make way for J Monaghan to return to the wing, looks like Smith will play all the experienced players

For Warrington and Leeds fans attending, a bit of house keeping news: all the Council run town centre car parks are free on Saturday, including the multi-story closest to the stadium.

 

Meanwhile, I hope Warrington win!

Warrington to win, please.

This fixture means so much to me.


"Now The Wire!", as they used to shout on the terraces of Wilderspool.

Worried as can we beat Leeds 3 times in recent years in the cup.

Hate stats.


Here's to a great game and I'm going to wembley no matter what.


Fingers crossed for a wire win, if Leeds win, I'm happy to see Sinfield lift it 2 weeks time

Excited. Few, if any, other games get me as excited as a Challenge Cup Semi Final.

According to Phil Kinsella, BBC Manchester chap, most journalists are tipping Leeds.

Saw that Leeds were slight favourites, giving us a 2pt start.

I'd stay out of the multi storey though they are always a nightmare to get off after. Best bet will probably be college street behind the police station and then walk over.
