Keep the deficit below 30 and we have done very well.

Looking forward to going as I've never been to the ground before. Hopefully the tie will be on the Sunday afternoon.

it will be good to see how we have progressed since last season and our last visit to Wilderspool in the cup a few years ago forgotten what the score was though.

No disrespect to the players ability but its our cup final and reckon it will be closer than most think. I cvould be wrong as usual.

Good luck to the lads, lets let Super Dooper League know what they are missing :rolleyes:

What sort of side will be playing, bearing in mind we have Tolouse only 4 days later?

The Tolouse game is much more winnable so will we see an experimental side or ful strength?

I bet DP will be thinking the same thing when the time comes. The players will be desperate to play in this game but DP has to weigh up the importance of this game with the far more important Toulouse game which as you say is only 4 days later.

its true (and also farcial) that warrington season ticket holders will get in for nowt so,unlike yesteryear,we'll make nowt.if they've say 7000 s/t holders and the gates 8000 we'll get half of the extra thou.as Terry M points out the magic of the CC has all but disappeared thanks to the "visionaries" and with it the big pay-day which would see you through the season.(bet Hetheringtons well chuffed 12000 Hull fans are payin nowt :D )

suppose it makes it all the more vital us lot get there en -masse to swell the coffers.as long as we do our best and give our all the result aint important.lets just show Lewis n Woods we got something to offer!!

Two seats on the Warrington Nut Bus please Gary. We did'nt disgrace ourselves last year (on the field I mean not on the nut bus) and we won't this year. Lets get at them and give it a go.

We should always put out our strongest team otherwise you have a defeatest attitude and with our strength in depth we should not be too afraid of injuries.

I'm not sure of the in's and out's of this, but my assumption is that a certain amount of the season ticket goes towards these games and therefore if a season ticket holder turns up, their part of the season ticket value goes towards the gate reciepts for this CC game.

If not then I suspect that Workington got nowt out of us, given that I suspect out of the 1215 ground on sunday 600ish would have been Fev season ticket holders that would have left 600 paying punters less expenses to share between the two clubs, meaning nowt to very little for Workington.

ill still be expecting a win no matter who where playing B)
No disrespect intended mate but you are talking about two clubs who in terms of playing ability are simply miles apart.

Warrington being the clear leaders of course.

Should be a good crowd and at least we will get a shared gate so not a great loss but could have been a lot better

Theres also the possability of tele money if the BEEB go to form, they like to show the holders in the first defence of the trophy

I've been saying Welham in the corner with 30 seconds to go and Finny's kick going over off the upright.

Final score Warrington 22 - Fev 24

Wire season ticket holders do get in for free for this one. Should still be a big crowd though. I hope the fev fan who started to throw lit cigarettes at wire fans last year at post office road doesn't travel though. He turned nasty because he couldn't handle the fact his team had let in 50! Fools like that have no place at RL games in my opinion.

my thoughts on that game was that Warrington never got out of 2nd gear.

We ran at them and gave them a giddy 20 mins. They soaked up the pressure, took their (sometimes gifted) opportunities, and when we tired they exposed a gap or two giving the final scoreline an over inflated tilt in their favour.

I got the impression that if they ever needed to increase the tempo, they could have done, without any problem. Whereas our lads did their very best - and they did so valliantly, and that's all I ask, the gulf in prep, depth, fitness and quality was there for all to see in the final analysis.

Not what most want to hear I'm sure, but that's how it was for me.

Unless a championship club draws a struggling SL club on their @rse, (and Warrington aren't one of those), the result is almost inevitable bar the shouting.

But at least we can shout!!!!

Didn't Warrington have a few second stringers in that game I remember Briers didn't play.

Paul and I were talking to some Warrington fans last year when we were queing, yes queing up to get in they thought that Warrington were on a poor run of form at that point and that Rovers would give them a close game, it wasn't to be in the end. Think that they have improved this year as have we.
