As a born and bred Bradford lad (well, apart from a short time in Morley as a very young child), I shall be cheering Saints on. Well, I would but I'll be on the ferry to France at the time the match is on. :D

Go Saints!

Spot on with that mate, same here. I'll be doing some serious winding at the game and around Huddersfield after IF St Helens can do the Rhinos.

Just checking the lineup, going off recent selections I don't think Saints will line up without a kicker so I would go for Foster or Lomax on the wing rather than flannery in the centres.

I don't know who the coach will pick between the two young lads but I apart from those2 I reckon the Saints line up will be the following.

1. Paul Wellens,

2. Ade Gardner, 3. Matt Gidley,

5. Francis Meli, Jamie Foster/Jonny Lomax

6. Leon Pryce, 16. Scott Moore

15. Bryn Hargreaves, 9. Keiron Cunningham, 10. James Graham,

12. Jon Wilkin,13. Chris Flannery ,

14. James Roby,

11. Tony Puletua, 17. Paul Clough, 18. Matty Ashurst, 28. Shaun Magennis,

Which is probably as close as we have been all season to a first choice starting line up. Only Fasavalu and Soliola missing, everyone else is in the team on merit.

Although Potter could drop Gardner and keep Flannery at centre and still have a kicker on the field.

Not sure of the Leeds line up from the 19.

1. Brent Webb,

2. Scott Donald, 3. Brett Delaney,

4. Keith Senior, 5. Ryan Hall,

6. Danny McGuire, 7. Rob Burrow,

16. Ryan Bailey, 9. Danny Buderus, 10. Jamie Peacock,

11. Jamie Jones-Buchanan, 8. Kylie Leuluai

13. Kevin Sinfield,

14. Matt Diskin, 17. Ian Kirke, 19. Luke Burgess, 24. Luke Ambler,

When you look at the numbers that ain't a bad line up, it's pretty much the first 17 from the start of season squad number selection.

Hello, Kylie :rolleyes: ( I know its unbelievable we are doing this well without him)

Not sure if Lomax is fit but Foster deserves his place. If Lomax is free drop Gardner. Meli is doing a better job at centre (did I really say that. Still better than his usual up to know but tomorrow will probably be the day he stuffs it up!!)

on paper & going off form I feel confident however Leeds are generally Jammy in big games so not overly confident. Should be a good game. Could damage the throat shouting at the TV :(

COME ON YOU SAINTS

Lol oh yeh completely forgot about the little lad. To be honest I was looking at the squad numbers and did not see us missing a 7. But I was also surprised with all the injury talk from leeds when you look at their line up. They are only missing their number 12 from the starting 13.

Leeds. Never write them off. You need to be a good distance ahead at half time to beat Leeds. As Wigan and Bradford have found out this season.

Leeds will win this one, no problem.

After all, they've just had to take their medicine from the RFL for the first time in ages and then they've managed to get Hetherington's tea ##### on the whistle again.

They'll get everything going in this game.

Sorry Saints but it is game over for you.

Does anyone know why the BBC arent showing this in HD? They seem to be showing planty of other sports on their HD channel( including a championship footie match later) yet arent showing the Challenge Cup.

Pryce out. Makeshift halfs for Saints, in Wilkin and Moore.

Has to be a Leeds win.

Perfectly good Saints try disallowed.

Saints penalised for tackling.

How could anyone think that the RFL and its officials might just favour a Leeds victory?

:rolleyes:

My word that was a harsh penalty against Scott Moore.

And another against Meli.

Couple of harsh late shot calls, it wasn't a high hit on Meli, though.

Nice try Leeds....

At last the voice of balanced reason.

Being stuck abroad, listening on line and following the one eyed thread on here makes it hard to judge the game but :dry: <_< :dry:
