I see no reason why the league should lie here. Wigan have been pretty dominate this year, Leeds had a bit of a recovery mid season from their awful start, but from the last 2 games that I've seen of Leeds, Wigan have very little to worry about. Leeds just don't seam to have the energy about them that they have had in previous seasons.

Wigan to win by 16

Wigan 16 Leeds 26

Can Sinfield, Burrow and Buderus play so poorly for 3 games on the bounce, IMO no, hence the above scoreline.

Wires to get the club pick :P

I'm worried by a degree of overconfidence displayed by our fans on other boards - our home form has been shaky at times and Leeds will find some form again soon.

Heart says Wigan, head says too close to call.

A very pivotal game for me as far as the play offs are concerned.If Leeds can find enough form to win at Wigan i would make them favourite to go on and win the grand final.A Wigan win would for me finish Leeds off and really open it up and any from Wigan Wires Saints could go on to win it and I would find almost impossible to split them

Leeds didn't improve last week against us. Fancy Wigan to really get into them early here and run up a score.

Hopefully Bailey will get put on report, and add to his impressive disciplinary pages on the RFL website. Muppet.

I think Leeds will go into the play-offs with a nothing to lose attitude. They are definitely the most dangerous team any side will play,and I wouldn't at all be surprised to see them go all the way and win it again.

Easy win for Wigan. Leeds have lost their mojo and now have no hunger or desire to make the effort needed to win competitions. A change in attitude is the reason Leeds are where they are albeit Peacock who never gives less than 100% is a big loss. McLennan is being found wanting when he needs to step up.

I think Wigan will win because our back 5 is very good indeed, and Deacon will have enough time and space behind a pack able to earn parity to control the play. Leeds have a better pack than Wigan when Peacock and Burgess are fit. WIthout them, and particularly with Hansen back, we should have enough.

Of course Leeds are serial champions and may produce a run of irresistible form, but that would shock me.

On current form it's a difficult one to call. Leeds have been gash the last couple of games but wigan have been less than convincing in home games losing against saints, huddersfield and warrington. Wigan are beatable at home as the results have shown but leeds really need to start stepping up if they are to trouble them. As for a score..............haven't got a clue. My major worry is breaking wigans defensive line to get to the bar in wetherspoons on sunday afternoon, andy gregory seems to manage so i'll just follow him :D

Even with a full complement of forwards, I don't think Leeds could handle this current Wigan team in the form they're in. Leeds to lose and possibly stutter out next week.

The best thing that can happen for Leeds is torrential rain

Just like Headingley and the challenge cup (and we all know what happened then)

Wigan.

Leeds can't score when they're dominant.

I'd like to see a new controlling seven at the club.

Bit disappointed in the bookies on this one. I fancy Wigan by quite a bit but they're not being overgenerous with winning margins. Wigan by 21-30 is only 9/2. Poor odds when you think Leeds are three times GF winners.

Just had a call from the wife in the local sainsburys a bit concerned because Brent Webb is there with the kids doing the weekly shop. She asked him if he was playing today and he replied "Yeah, it's just that the missus has sent me out to do the shopping" with a cheeky grin. Rugby league.....keeping it real.

Agreed.

Disappointingly stingy odds.

I think the pressure is all on Wigan.

Could be a big upset on the cards here. That is if you consider the current GF winners beating Wigan to be an upset.

As Shaun McCrae once said,the previous weekly SL rounds now count for nothing. Wigan only have home advantage and a little tin hubcap to show for their efforts. Home advantage hasn't always benefitted Wigan since the move to the DW stadium.

IMHO the so called 18th man can become a burden when things start going pear- or should that be pie - shaped.

I think that's wishful thinking.

The pressure is off Wigan. We have already won the league and exceeded expectations.

To my mind it is rare for a game to be won or lost for non player/rugby reasons. Wigan have a stronger back 5, ok halves and a pack that can match Leeds. The 3 games have resulted in 2 comfortable wins for Wigan and one tight defeat.

If Leeds win it will be because they have re-found the ability and desire that has made them 3 times champions. At the start of the year I thought it would be Leeds 1st and daylight second. They are a wonderful teams with wonderful players, and if they win that's the first place to look for answers.

Good luck to both teams (not Ablett of course). These are 2 classy clubs and 2 classy teams - they oftne give us a treat. Let's hope they do so again tonight.
