    A novel pairing for the GF after Warrington defeated Saint Helens before a crowd of 12,700 at St. Helens.

    This will be a replay of the Challenge Cup final won by the Wolves.

    Lets hope the result is the same!!!!

    :D

    As a sign (if your into that kind of thing) Wire beat Saints and Leeds beat Wigan in the u20's semis.

    Wire then won the final. :D


    The year of the wolf!! Awooooooo.

    Should be a good game and closer than the cup final with McGuire back. We will definately have more in attack anyway. Leeds have a knack of building week on week from the start of September and hitting their peak in the last 2 weeks of the playoffs. I think Saturday will be a low scoring game where both teams have to earn their points. I think wire have the better attack but Leeds the better defence at the moment.

    Wireman, if you win will you class yourselves as champions btw? ;)

    you would think so wouldn't you?

    But thanks to sky hype we have to pay out loads more money to watch a trumped up premiership competition which no one can be bothered attending.


    so yeah, I'd like to say Wigan are champions. ;-)

    You don't have to go. After all, it's a concept you don't believe in so why waste your money?

    Still can't believe Leeds are such long odds. They were a whopping $15 before the Wigan game and still pushing $3 despite being one of two teams that can win. No pressure on them, bucket loads of experience, should be an intruiging battle against an arguably quicker, more skillful side. Question is, do wolves have any bottle? Fair play if they do. It takes a special team to win the double in this era.

    Remarkably, Eurosport have decided to show it live. What a privilege! Enjoy all. I will. Wigan can't win :)

    Yeah, I couldn't resist Leeds at those odds. I'm in for a nice payout if they win, go the Rhinos!

    Why shouldn't they be long odds? It's not like they've won four of the past five or anything.

    Better get some NoDoze. Eurosport Australia, 4am sunday morning, though it is effectively 3am unless you change your clock to DST before going to bed on saturday :crazy: (clocks change at 2am sunday?)

    Thank f*ck for IQ is all I can say. Eurosport - please please please do not f*ck this one up, as you have managed to do throughout the year

    It's 2am according to my Foxtel. Oh well, I'll just record it, if Leeds win I'll watch if they lose I may just skim through.

    You know more about the league than I do mate but surely a team with three recent Challenge Cup final wins can be said to have the bottle to do it on the big stage. The CC may not be the be all and end all it was decades ago but the final is still a sold out national showcase for the game nd takes bottle to win and can be lost be anyone as Leeds themselves regularly show lately.
