Some major players have returned for Leeds this week and last. If they are fit, and you have to question whether someone like Oledzki really is, then Leeds have the better team and I'd expect a win.

Leeds have to score three tries or more and they win.

No Bulluck and Isa back in the centres is a worry,can’t see past Leeds in a low scoring contest 

With 2 Aussie reserve graders,a bang average championship winger,& Iain Thornley coming in & no halfback for next season yet,this could easily be our last playoff game for a while.

Yeah I don't think he is really fit but I guess an injection or two and he and others will risk it

I think Leeds will have too much in the pack and with ball in hand.  I think they'll get the 3/4 tries that will probably see them win the game.

Can't see them getting over the line 3/4 times. Wigan try line defence in particular has been amazing so Leeds will need errors or another stellar perfomance from the fat 40 year old! Still don't think Lui should go home but sounds like it his missus who says they have to!

I dunno, they managed it twice last time out with half a team and playing with 12 for 20 minutes so I can see them causing some real problems.  If the returning guys are match fit (big if) Leeds will cause Wigan problems.

A very low scoring game coming I sense. Wigan's attack is poor and defence is excellent. Leeds are more well rounded but are better than Wigan in attack and worse in defence. This game will turn on whether Leeds can break Wigan down enough times. With play offs often leaning more towards defensive ability, I see a narrow Wigan win.

I can easily see Cats getting complacent against a revitalised Wigan next week if that’s the case. I think we’ll see a final between two of Wigan / Saints / Warrington, and probably a very dull but close final.

Exactly how I see it going apart from Catalans getting frustrated by Wigan rather than complacent. Same end result though.

At the start of the year I fancied Wigan to win the competition. I thought they were the better team in the 2020 GF and expected them to improve in 2021.

They have looked all year like proving me wrong but have just started to show signs of coming good.

Even so their attack is clunky and I feel Leeds have the better all round game. I think Leeds can win especially if they have a couple of their forwards back.
