My oh my what a game this should be. Wakefield have some form back but the Broncos on a high. If the broncos can hold out wakey for 20-30 minutes I can see them winning, could go to golden point. I'm sitting on the fence here.

I think Wakey will edge this - they've got some form back although they did get a couple of new injuries. Should be a cracking game anyway.

Hoping for a London win. Looking forward to the drive up on Friday afternoon! The first away game i've travelled to in quite a few years!

Come on London, looking for Butler to lead our pack around the field.

Does anyone know what injuries Wakefield have? I read a report that mentioned Kirmond had to go off injured mid-way through the first half last week, is he likely to be playing?

Any pubs in London showing this or is that too much to ask?

I know there is a pub in London Bridge that a bunch of London supporters usually meet up at. There was quite a few last Friday, with videos of them celebrating. Can't recall what the pubs name is though unfortunately.

I said weeks back it would come down to this one game and I'm sticking with my guns and saying a London win, despite what seems like an improved Wakey performance against Warrington. IF Wakey lose that would be 17 losses out the last 19 I think, just a horrible run for the middle and back end when they were doing alright early in the season.

If London do pull this off then it should go down as one of the most amazing stories in RL, that they beat Toronto last season in the million pound game was an astounding performance in itself, that they've kept themselves in it right to the death is beyond pretty much all but the most optimistic.

It's going to be harsh on whoever no matter the result so good luck to all teams, whilst my angst re my own clubs performances has really put me off going, I can be grateful that we aren't going into the last game of the season needing a win to stay up because we would be fubar'd and I couldn't see us beating London or wakey quite honestly.

Wakey have banned their players from social media this week! Sounds like they are afraid the situation may get to them. London have this relegation pressure all season so I don't think will be phased. For London this is a re-run of the MPG game in Toronto.

Id love London to stay up but Wakefield are a tough team and last weekend must have taken something out of London

Sadly, im going for Wakefield by a few in a bit of a damp squib. I hope im wrong.

I have a bad feeling that London are going to take this and fair play to them if they do. Hoping for a Salford win to save us but also would love to see Salford win at OT, the story this season has been brilliant even though its killed me as a wakey fan, it has been a great season for the neutrals barring Saints running away with it.

Do you not think the Warrington game will have taken a lot out of Wakefield? They really wanted to win that one and the performance (apparently) was improved, it's the same effort for both teams, I don't think there is any advantage, in fact at home there is more pressure on Wakefield IMHO.

Just seen on facebook that Belushis London Bridge is showing it and a few London fans will be there.

As has been the case all season, no pressure on London, all on Wakey, I think Wakey will do enough to win, but London, if they go, should go with their heads held high and hopefully a standing ovation from the Wakefield public

Possibly. Though I think it might have similarly taken a lot of our Wakefield physically and mentally, I think it will have taken a lot out of London emotionally. 

Though who knows. One think London have done fantastically this year is land punches in bunches. They score 1 and they look to score 2 or 3 in quick succession. Even in games they have looked out of they have managed to cause a few nervous moments and pick up a few points they otherwise wouldn't have done. 

If they can do that early to get themselves a 2 or 3 score lead against Wakefield, or do it late and get themselves within a score coming back, there will be a lot of pressure on wakefield in that stadium.

Statistically London seem doomed at Wakefield…

Going back to Feb 2008 London have never won away at Wakey (no games 2015 - 2018).  In 2019 Wakey have won 1 of their last 5 home games but 6 of their 14 home games.  London have won 2 of their last away games but only won 4 out of their 14 away games.

However… London will win in a 21-20 golden point thriller with Hudds going down on points difference with a 20pt loss to Catalans and Hull KR remaining with a narrow 6pt loss loss to Salford.  In my dreams….

No idea who will win.  Too tight to call.  But the game of RL will benefit far more if London stay up.
