Chippiness is that a word ? Bitterness and jealousy ? What have I got to bitter and jealous about ?

Kendall has been ridiculously over-exposed to Wigan players recently, that's definitely not a good thing.

On the other hand there was his controversial performance in last year's Grand Final where he handed the game to St Helens.

So that side of it is pretty well balanced. . .

Hopefully the Saints win 🙂

If Warmsley and Graham really are 100% fit, I will go for a Saints win.

Absolutely no way Walmsley is going to be 100% fit.

Not sure Graham has been fit all season, but I guess he will get over this protocol. Saints will want him to be slipping the ball, not yardage.  I expect Saints generally will be looking to pass out and slip the ball.

Fair doos to all players, I don't want to see any get injured.  But what was clearly a knee injury, looking like some cartilage issue, that Walmsley had does not clear up miraculously by mid week... especially when he seemed to have it going into the game.   But its the end of season, players will carry knocks.

Same twenty-one man squad for Saints as the one that was named against Catalans. I wouldn’t bet against a different seventeen either, with Graham and Walmsley confirmed as being fit.

Unfortunately Graham’s cannon fodder now he isn’t going to win Saints the game. Potentially a 100% Walmsley has it in him to be the difference between the two teams. He isn’t going to be that unless of course it was all part of some master plan to have everyone ruling him out.

Heart says Saints. But with my head, we've got a big job on our hands.

We have lost to Wire twice this year and the one occasion we have played a full strength Wigan team, lost. And on two of the three occasions, we were comfortably beaten. If we are to win, we need to make big improvements on those matches.

But, Walmsley didn't play in two of those matches. Now we shouldn't be too reliant on one player, but we are (hopefully addressing that next year). An unfit Walmsley and we'll lose. Fully fit, we've got a shot.

We had more problems last time against Wigan in that we only looked like scoring once (although we did take that chance). Against Catalans last time, we looked a lot more fluent in attack, more so than we have for months. Wigan's defence is a different matter though!

Going in with hope rather than expectation for this one!

The warrington game (semi) we lost both centres in the first half, they scored a lucky headed try and coote uncharicteristically missed a conversion that would have tied the game.

Perfect storm really, it was all saints in the first 20.

The derby defeat saints got the tactics wrong and tried to out muscle in the middle with no real play on the edges. The difference was 2 errors by grace leasing to 2 wigan trys and a missed forward pass for another. 

I dont see grace as good enough for saints but he gets away with it with his pace to can acrobatically finish.

Hopefully the tactics will be different and saints to play like saints.
