Should be interesting this one. Lingard has said that after the friendly that got out of hand they made mistakes in the build up to the league game at Cougar Park by not hyping it up enough. I've a feeling they'll be a tougher proposition this weekend.

Hope the lads that went away on their hols this weekend come back ready to train.

Think it will be fiery early on but we'll win comfortably. Another weak referee like we had against Workington and it'll just descend into farce again. Keighley aren't the same team we faced in the friendly. They've lost a number of players.

So long as we don't fall for the old trick yet again and go away from rugby and start arguing with the referee and get into argy bargy with the opposition. If I was coaching Keighley it's the game plan I'd go for since it's proven to work.

They'll be training to smash, not training to play. Hit them hard, don't get cheap and we should win comfortable.

Well I’ve never heard of the ref selected. I hope he is given a clear message as to what this derby is likely to descend into if he doesn’t enforce himself. That goes for both sides as I think if we had a sin binning each after the first brawl vs Workington it would have calmed the game right down.

We should have enough quality to win the game but keighley will know that if they beat us that essentially ruins our season by extinguishing the faint hope of catching york and sends us to a nervy playoffs (subject to rfl structure changes...). Massive incentive for keighley

I know that many of their fans have that attitude, but surely the players aren't quite so daft?

Our players have yet to show they're capable of being drawn in by a side that's come to put them off their game. I put a lot of that being down to us having such a young side. Referees at our level are also very inexperienced and it shows as Bulls4 said when they choose to put things on report rather than deal with things more strictly. Had the ref put two in the sinbin after the first blow up vs Workington there's a good chance the other blow ups wouldn't have occurred.

Keighley have lost to Coventry and London Skolars in recent weeks. Not only should we win comfortably, but we don't deserve to be promoted if we don't.

A number of key players missing from a squad already depleted by players leaving mid season. Routine win for you. I'll be pleasantly surprised if we keep you under 50.

Anybody fancy hazarding a guess at the attendance for Sunday?
