Going to be a great game I think.

I'm looking at a narrow TWP win as we seem to allow teams back in, so let's say TWP by 4. People need to remember that our team has never played to its full potential and these weekly high intensity games are just making us better and better every week.

So my take from this post is that the only reason your inevitable victory will be narrow, is due to your propensity for taking your foot off the gas.

This kind of arrogance should probably be reserved for fans of teams with a better record against Super League opposition.

You are likely to find that trampling over teams filled with part time semi-pro's a different proposition to playing a full time team, playing with confidence, away from home.

Maybe you will win on Saturday, personally I doubt it. What I am 100% sure of is that if you honestly think you have a team of enough quality to take your foot off at any point in the 80 minutes, then you are likely to get your pants pulled down hilariously.

Harry haven't we been down this road before?

Yep we sure have, and I was wrong that time in my conversations with yourself, but as they say the world loves a tryer, so I thought give it another go, surely I cant be wrong twice, can I?

Well we are certainly gong to find out Harry but always remember :"The third time is the charm!"

Don't let them get to you Krzzystuff...I think your analysis is spot on.  We are improving every game and playing some better teams is helping us....we are learning, probably faster than any club in history.  Look at what we have accomplished in just under 2 years, its amazing.  Even when we lose we win!

If it is a Toronto win, then it will be a bombshell of a result.   Given that Widnes look totally gone, then Toronto must in the main be fighting for 4th or 5th, a game which I have to say creates an absurd spectacle.

If you are that against the ' 8s ' system , why do you spend your whole life discussing it on here ? , people like you complain the middle 8 s are getting all the discussion time , then go on to discuss it

Crazy

Can see Toronto winning this, the comments seem to be very one sided against them, although I would have Salford as narrow favourites as they have home advantage.  Toronto were toe to toe with Warrington in the cup before they had men sent off.  They had the best of the game against HKR before a couple of breakaway tries made their heads go down.  They came close to beating Salford last year  in the cup when they were in League 1.

Toronto will have to play well to win and compete in what we politely call the 'armwrestle'.  They will need to improve on that over the Warrington game. Can they keep their heads however in what ought to be a tough game. This is the benchmark for me, because it's likely they will be in that position in the MPG.

Given that Widnes are the bottom (of both leagues in the same season!) then it would not be surprising that the likely and appropriate ultimate play-off final at the top of the Championship is to be between Toronto  and Toulouse.

Salford seem to have perked up a bit with their new signings, and Toronto may well struggle.

"Salford coast to easy Toronto win". More likely.

Exactly,these were my thoughts too.

The way Salford demolished Halifax last week though must make them slight favourites.

Salford to nick it in a very close contest.
