Grand Final: Wigan Warriors v St. Helens
Posted 28 September 2010 - 08:29 PM
Nonetheless I wish we had a fully fit Kyle and Leon at HB and that we didnt have Francis Meli playing on the wing.

Hoping for a fine evening weather wise for some top of the ground, crisp handling rugby.
Looking forward to seeing a good open game. Both sides like to move the ball about a bit and if we get an untypical, non grinding final then I will be more than happy. I've only seen Sam Tomkins on the telly before so looking forward to seeing him in the broader, live perspective from full back. I also hope that one of the unsung heroes in Coley has a good game and that Cunningham brings down the curtain on his career with some aplomb.
Not been to a big RL occasion like this since the 1995 world cup final so I'm all breath bated.
May the best team win.

I hope I'm worrying unduly.

It pains me to say this as a Wigan fan but I think Saints have been unbelievable to reach the final considering their injury problems in the backs....a fantastic effort led by KC.
cant wait for the game, cant call it may the best team win.

The only thing I'm sure of is that I can't wait!

Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon. No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

I'm going for Saints by 10.
If it's evens at half time I imagine that will be enough for wigan to seal it in the final 40 mins.
Wigan's defence was good at leeds but we can't forget, that the week before Hull KR took them on and got ahead in the game.
Also the week before, Leeds took it to Wigan and came out victors.
Get ontop of them at the start and the Wigan defense has to be sacrificed for more open attacking play.
It's all about da bass

We can't lose four on the trot...can we?

Bookies probably got it about right.
SL Steve Prescott Man of Steel 2016 - Danny Houghton SL Top Gun 2016 - Marc Sneyd (83% goal success)
SL Hit Man 2016 - Danny Houghton (1,289 tackles) SL Club of the Year 2016 - Hull FC
SL Coach of the Year 2016 - Lee Radford RL Challenge Cup Winners 2016 - Hull FC
All in all, not a bad year, I suppose...

If the game is open and flowing, i fancy Wigans backs will be to good, If it's a tight game amongst the forwards Saints will have the edge, Just hope it's a good one, they are two great sides so it should be, can't call it.

Saints have luck and KC on their side thats why they will win its all set up for them i think.

they've done fine without him leading upto the Huddersfield match, saturday will be no different. Smiths kicking game could be a blessing in disguise.
