Depending on the weather, could be a bad day at the office for Warrington.   A resurgent Leeds side will punish Wire if they switch off like they did against Toronto.

If the weather is fine and the moves well-executed I'd hope for a Warrington victory by a couple of scores.   However, if it's typical wet and windy February weather or if Warrington have another down day like at Wakefield I can see Leeds outscoring us 4 to 2.

Guess we'll see which side turns up.   No Ashton but at least Hill is back and Widdop has had a bit more time to gel with Austin.

Wire will be up for this even though Leeds have gone into a decline in recent years they're still a team Wire want to beat well . I think Wire will nick this one .Leeds still have a bit of rebuilding yet , but progress is being made 


 Soon we will be dancing the fandango

Has to be a worry that this is the third game Stevie Ward is going to miss already. Really do feel for the lad. I'd hoped this would be his break out season after previous setbacks. Looks ever more the case Greenwood has been brought in as cover for Ward more than anything else.

A repeat of last season at home would be great,and who can forget that dive for the line by Lineham 10 yards out only to finish 5yards short and pushed into touch. On a serious note I think Warrington will be too strong for us this time round so Wire by 10.

Wire have Chris Hill back after suspension but fantastic new signing Matty Ashton is out with a hamstring problem.

It's rarely easy at Headingley but I'm quietly confident we will have enough to win by 6 or 7 points.


Looks like another wet and cold evening on that awful Western Terrace ☔ Might have to retreat to the shiny new North Stand.

Is Ashton injured or are they managing him?

No hamstring injury, waiting to hear if its minor or not.

He's wirey so maybe going to be injury prone? I assume the conditioners at Wire are working on putting a body on him? 

He tried to kick as he was hit hard on the last tackle. But reports only say he misses this week. As for conditioners no idea.

No Mamo at centre, so my guess would be Currie in the three quarters, Johnson or Burrell starting 2nd row.

Burrell is surprisingly strong in the tackle but I feel he might get caught out positionally at centre? Who knows. Price seems to want to get him playing every week so I guess we’ll see. I want to see more of Luis Johnson too though.

Still fancy Leeds at home against a hit and miss Wire side, which would mean no back to back wins since June 😳

Conditions will be grim tonight, so it might not be a great tv spectacle. It's been lashing down here in north Leeds since 10 am.

 

Now the Wire!

Looking forward to this one (the quality of the play the balls excepted).

I think Leeds have got better the last few weeks after a convincing first round loss and this will be a test of where they are.

I have a feeling Leeds will pinch this one.

Oughtn’t Burrell have been promoted from the bench? 

In the games I’ve seen he hasn’t been defending at centre but the next or next but two in so maybe Price thinks he is more of a second row?

It's an odd one. Obviously we are just happy to give him experience from the bench, because we have used Mamo, Ratchford and now Brand ahead of Burrell as Gellings replacement.

I’m getting ever more convinced that signing Burrell was the suits’ idea and Price is just humouring his bosses by having him on the bench.
