Wigan, by 36.

No odds available yet, but I reckon the handicap line will be there or thereabouts.

A stroll in the park for Wigan.

Wigan should be fine, but surely London must start playing to their potential soon?

I'd think 36 is being generous to London tbh.

36 clear, 48-12 something like that.

You'll rarely see a handicap much bigger than that in Super League though. Same fixture last year had London as 26pt 'dogs.

They are playing to their potential. The Aussies clearly don't give a monkey's about playing for the club, they're only here to earn some cash and have a look around Europe (Dorn and Gower excepted). The northerners only come down here because no-one at home will touch them due to talent / injuries. The southerners are inexperienced and out of their depth. And we have a coach who undoubtedly reads the game very well but indulges in nonsensical management-speak and is far too trusting of his players and their motivation for being here.

Wigan to win big.

Great summary, except the bit about Dorn.

Last season the score was 42-30 so anything is possible. Wigan could rest players and still win easy.

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear :( Having said that there was the occasion when we went to the DW with just as low expectations, were something like 26-2 down at half time and came back to win. Ah, well, one can but dream!

It'd be just our luck if the Broncos chose this weekend to wake up.

Handicap is 28pts at the moment. Tempted by that.

Sam - Baby - Fuzzy - Hughes - Pat - Green - Smith - Moose - Mc - Dudson - Tuson - Ginger Pearl - Lockers : Taylor - Flower - Burke - Powell... Should be good enough for a win.

One thing Exiled W, Fuzz won't be playing as he's not in the 19.

Perhaps Hughes at 3 with Thornley 4.

Agree rest selects itself really.

I missed that. He's ill rather than injured though. We lose one of those to injury, and we'll need David Stephenson back.
