Rovers by 8. I think all will depend on who can play for us. But with the astute coach we have I reckon a strong team will be playing.

I'm not. I'm hearing that Wildie is a definite no and JSL, Kopczak and Kheirallah are very doubtful. Plus Jones is banned. 

I believe that Mr Lam has the other problem of who to leave out, apart from long time injured Chris Green all others are available - happy to be corrected.

Leigh by about 12.  I think they'll win in the last quarter.  From everything I've seen this year they're bigger, faster and fitter than us.

 

 

I think that Fev are a little more expansive with ball in hand than Leigh, but I think that it could be a question of who is better organised in defence, let's be totally honest neither have been really tested this season except Leigh at your place but I think that game coming when it did in Fev and how both teams have improved their roster's since carry's no relevance to the end of May.

You have said all season that Leigh is bigger and faster than Fev, since you first made that call I think that Leigh have increased in both size and speed, but I am not falling for your lack of confidence trick🤫

I have this argument with my lads every time you're on telly. They're full of the confidence of youth, I always go for the worst case scenario then I'm never disappointed.

Whatever happens, I'll be off work, it'll be a cracking game and some beers will be consumed 😀

That game in Feb means nothing. All it proved is that we're a bit better at mud wrestling than you are.

Got to go for my local team, Fev.

Found this a hard game to call anyway but the number of Fev players who aren't certain to play at this stage makes it tougher. Connor Jones is suspended and Josh Hardcastle, Gareth Gale, Mark Kheirallah, Craig Kopczak, Jesse Sene-Lefao, Mattie Wildie, and Adam Cuthbertson have been out injured or limped off on Saturday so it's hard to get an idea of how we will line up.

I hope both teams batter the living daylights out of each other for 80 minutes and then, just because it would be funny, I hope it finishes 12 all.

Defending champs retain the trophy in case of a draw is the usual sporting guideline I believe 😀

Looking forward to this game more than the CC Final. Will be there, just have to work out how many trains I need to cross London. Three at least and nearly two hours according to Trainline website. Probably take as long as it does from Fev. Should be a great game though, hope both teams have their stars fit and playing.

Bromley South (guessing from the username...) to Victoria then Victoria Line to Seven Sisters and either walk or get Overground to White Hart Lane.

I'm going for the Leythers to win by at least 12 points.. the spirit and confidence in the camp is high... but the more important games are ahead.

For this very reason promotion should be first past the post and not a one off cup match. Tha could have even more injuries illness and suspensions come the play offs. Same with leigh of course

sometimes you have to take a step backwards to move forward

Thanks, Matt. Plus Ravensbourne to Bromley South and I'm sorted!
