Well I think Widnes and Warrington will win comfortably. Catalan v Leigh is a huge match for both teams and I would just go for home advantage in that one.

Sunday is a must win for London and is veryhardto call. I think London will pull it off but if they don't that could be it for this year which will be disappointing.

Just one change for Warrington, Clarke out and Smith starts with Dwyer on the bench.

They have had a lot of injuries and have rarely had even a close to first choice 17.

It has been difficult to judge. They have the ability to pay well for a half but tend to fade at the end of games. They lack a cutting edge but if they can eliminate the errors and repeat penalties I suspect there us a decent side under it all.

Against Fax on Sunday was the first time this season that they've had the same team for two consecutive games.

Four home wins looks the most likely outcome. Way too soon to write off Catalans or Leigh, whatever the result. Both still have to play Widnes at home. Three wins and a decent points difference will get you to the MPG this year and as we saw in 2016, anything can happen in a one-off game.

4 home wins. Widnes FT fitness should see them get a win especially at home. Catalans at home should just sneak past Leigh who must be disappointed after last week both performance and result wise. HKR will be on a high and again should get the win at home against London.Fear Fax will do well to keep Wire under 50 as No Sharp, Cahalane, Tangata and basically only 19 fit first teamers.

They have been far far better than Leigh in their 2 meetings this season, and will be again if Leigh serve up the same dross of a game plan that the coach employed against HKR.

I expect they have another 2 meetings this season Including the MPG, 2 wins each over the season will do me, sorry Chuff but we have to live in hope.

Catalans v Leigh. Whoever loses gets relegated.

 Wouldn't go that far, but whoever loses is starting to get into trouble. If Leigh lose it will look bleak for them as they still have to face both Wire and Widnes from SL.

No no the rather large person from the female gender has not yet begun to exercise her vocal chrods in melodic verse yet, there is still the opportunity to for the loser to progress, but they will not be as comfortable mentally has the victor's will be in the games to come.

Well done Halifax deserve to be leading at ht, Wire needs to look in the mirror attitude wrong, taking opposition too lightly.

Halifax half time talk seems to have been give away penalties, that'll win us the game. :rolleyes:
