Really couldn't care less, just an educated guess.

i have never understood the phrase "an educated guess", why is that different to just "a guess". Does having an education mean all your guesses are "educated"?  Sill, tomorrow rolls on. Another , too close to call, match.

Going to stick my neck out on this we beat them the other week if we had of been  on sky the tries would have gone upto the video ref and i think they would have gone our way, I dont think we will let them into the game as easy next time if we go in front,they are a good team at backing up and throwing the ball out but if we smother the ball we will win,  tackle hard and push them back and the games ours ,im going Rovers by at least 10

An educated guess is when you look at the available material and come to a conclusion that is not concrete but the partial evidence brings you to that conclusion.

Our halves are hitting their straps in the playoff's. If our forwards create the platform we will win. Very close first 40 to 60 mins, Fev by 8.

1st try scored - Hardcastle.

M.O.M - Locky.

Saying "there will probably be some biff in today's game" would be a guess. Saying "Tyla Hepi will probably instigate it" would be an educated guess. HTH.

Good luck guys. I'm sure all of us at Leigh will be rooting for you, especially after the ridiculous schedule that you face, if you win today!

Old saying Blue Pike Money comes to Money.Hope you are drawing,When i was manager of William Hills, Ferrybridge John Marsdens dad had a tenner on Fev at 33/1 to win the R.L. Cup 82/83 season. He was first to the counter when i opened up Monday morning and of course i paid up with a smile.On the match day i passed a Mecca office in Wembley and they offered 11/10 Fev +14 start so i emptied my pockets only £29 left on Fev and drew the winnings on the way back to Wembley Central after the match.

Good luck today,I reckon you can win the game. You’ve certainly got the measure of them in the forwards,it’s all about the halfbacks,Stan Robin is out so a lot more pressure on Jonathan Ford.

Yes my Grandad had the same bet when he was at Wembley. Sad times at that Ferrybridge william Hill as it is closing down today.

I couldn’t give a toss about winning on the bet. I would gladly give £400 out of my winnings today ( yes had another good day on the gee gees) if Fev won . But lets all not build ourselves up for a fall. Regardless of the result we have had a great season. Just off to watch it with my son and Grand kids. UTR .

So Walters and King miss out, Hardcastle in the back row with Harrison, Carey moves to centre and Render comes in on the wing.

Just had a phone call from my brother in the bar near the ground and judged on the loud singing in the background it's fair to say we will have a decent following yet again.

I don't think the away league game (if that's what you meant) will have much relevance to Sunday's game, that was played in very boggy conditions whereas it's forecast to be 25-30 degrees on Sunday (glad we are playing in the evening), we didn't have our current halves (but did have Briscoe and Newman) whilst they laos had a few missing including Stan Robin.

Most bookies seem to be +10 not +12 and FWIW I'd rather back us at 11-4 to win the game outright than take the 10pt start at 10-11, think we have a definite shot but equally when Toulouse get on a roll at home they can pile up points quickly.

Not looking too bad at the moment
