Pick Your Opponents Play-Off Scenario

13 posts in this topic

Say the team that finish 4th manage to beat Wigan in week one.

And say Warrington somehow beat Saints in week one also.

And say Wigan and Saints then go on to beat whoever in week two to progress to week three.

Warrington would have to choose either Wigan or Saints. Who would you pick? Wigan being the best team in the league (but you have a good record against them), and Saints being your ultimate bogey team (although you would have finally just beaten them two weeks prior).

Great question!! I'd struggle to answer that as a neutral!!

What I would like to see is if any team picks the team other than the lowest ranked team is what reasoning they would give.

I'd forgot all about the coaches pick thing. I'd say you look at the relative form and health of each squad, there is very little to choose between Wigan, Saints or Wire. I think there will be some brlliant games in the play offs this year.

Great question, i'd been talking about this all week, I think this will happen.

Wires would pick Wigan.

I'm not sure we would pick Wigan in this scenario, I think once we beat Saints then the spell is broken and at the minute I'd prefer to play them.

I have to say thought that this Coach's pick I think is actually a disadvantage for the side doing the picking and a great otivator for the side picked!

There'd be a 3rd option in there, and we'd pick them.

Or have I got it wrong?

You can't pick the other team that wins in week one. It's their reward for not getting beat. Leeds couldn't pick Saints last year.

This is where clubcall gets really interesting.

If in RD1 the top two teams win, then it will generally just go to league positions like last year (unless the coach is very very brave!), but this year with Leeds and Wire/Saints expected to finish 3rd and 4th, then there is a real possibility of an upset or two.

Last year's was pretty interesting to watch live on Sky, although everybody knew that Leeds would pick Catalans, but if your scenario happened, I think it would be great drama!

Not bothered who we play. The way we demolished Leeds in the cup final last week shows that wires need to fear no one. Bring it on!
