Kevin Brown?

He’s a talent if he can play at both 6 and 7 in the game.

I can quite confidently state that it won’t and I’d be the first to apologise if I was wrong.  

However it’s highly likely there’ll be a bit of a ‘shock’ selection at half-back tomorrow, which this the only advantage we’ll have - unpredictability.

Isn’t it going to be Harvey Livett?

As long as he plays for nothing he can play anywhere.

Heard both names mentioned. 

As a Saints fan I would rather it was Hughes! Dont think he offers much with the ball.

To replace a player in the 19 Wire have to provide the RFL with a signed medical certificate that proves one of their original 19 is unfit to play. The RFL then have to grant them permission to replace that player.  

or a note from the players mum?

Now that was talent. Not many people could combine Grange Hill with an illustrious playing career at Parramatta.

I have just found this about Australian Rugby League on an article headlined "Golden Point" on Wikipedia ....

"After the 2015 grand final was decided in golden point, a change was made for finals matches only. Golden point in finals fixtures would now only be applied if scores are level after 10 minutes of extra time (five minutes each way)."

Is that now the same here in Britain or, if a draw, does the Challenge Cup final go directly to Golden Point ?

However, if it is as per the Australian system, that would mean the 1895 Final having to kick-off even later.

Why is Jamie Peacock used to read out teamsheets? I'm sorry, he's a great player and an inspirational speaker at times, but he's not a presenter.

Wire need to keep it close, if saints get more than a score ahead, they could easily run away with it. If wire keep it close Saints could get a bit nervous

Views of the stands suggest that another shockingly modest crowd could be seen again this year.

As they just showed Wire warming up, in the background  I'm sure I saw the solitary figure of Ben Currie having grounding the ball practice..

Success! My man in Lesbos has found BBC 1. No handpump though and it's 99 million degrees Celsius.

First cup final I've missed for a long time. Looking forward to an afternoon on the sofa watching though. 

Think we'll see a closer game than many predict. Charbly 1st try scorer and Lomax to win Lance Todd.

Shockingly modest? On the contrary, I've normally found St Helens crowds to be rather arrogant.

Having decided that Stains will romp away with the Final, I am now edging towards Dire. 😲😲😲
