Have we had six home wins yet this season?

This could be that week.

Sport, amongst other things, is a dream-world offering escape from harsh reality and the disturbing prospect of change.

Leigh by 70, that's look pretty harsh but against a team yet to record a league victory and only scoring 82 points in 8 games I think Leigh should at least record a 50 point margin.

Don't think you will be to far wrong with your other predictions.

All home apart from Batley.  Really hope Dewsbury v Town is a draw, but one of the will probably sneak it.

Yeah was going to go for about 60 points but London just look devoid of any sort of morale and are in a real struggle to stay up.

Games that are expected to be one-sided don't interest me at all even moreso when it is my team expected to run away with it, I have not got a season ticket this season - first time for a very long time - and in the past even having a ST I have side  stepped expected forgone conclusions, the jury is still out whether I attend or not.

 Although they are yet to register a victory, London's defence isn't the problem,it's their inability to score points.Defensive record is just as good as any in the top 6 according to the current ladder.Not bad for a winless team like.

20 point Leigh victory .

Some close and important games this week with Rams vs Town and Fax vs Barrow. Could go either way.  Batley to continue Widnes misery as York start to cement a playoff spot. 

Thunder have been unconvincing but need to win here to ensure stay in race .

The Widnes squad announcement lists about 10 or 11 people who aren't playing due to injury (Craven, Owens, Dupree etc.) but doesn't actually say who *is* playing.

Expecting Tom Gilmore to run the show for Batley - he's from Widnes, had over a decade at the Vikings since signing as a schoolboy.

From reading the Widnes forum last season,a lot of their fans did'nt rate him before he left.

Sheffield putting the cleaners through Newcastle. Looks like they may have a struggle on for the next few weeks.

Better second half from Thunder - 34-20 with 2 minutes left
