Seems strange we haven't got a topic for this yet. Normally would be an eagerly anticipated match, but seems like a bit of a non event to me. Performance is more important than the result. Hopefully see a few flowing moves rather than the clunky and stilted attack that has been on show recently. Really all about preparing for the semi as I see it.






Just my opinions unless it's a FACT, in which case it's a fact.

Not easy to get fired up for it.
A dead rubber on a revised date and not knowing what type of team either side will put out.

If it was me picking both teams...I'd go full team for Wire but weakened team of Saints.

Neither coach will want to show their hand ahead of bigger games, but neither team will want to risk a psychological drubbing.

Saints have rarely rested players this season, in fact it's been a criticism of Hallbrook that they look burnt out as a result.

I suspect both teams will rest a handful (Clarke, Hughes, Philbin & Goodwin would probably benefit fron a week off for us) but will want to maintain sone kibd of momentum.

For me, I don't mind conceeding this one, then going to the totallysmug stadium with 17 raring to go and catching them with their pants down.

Saints have posted their squad.
A full squad as I can see.

So if we go strong too...a dress rehearsal for the semi final perhaps?

Does anyone really care if we lose this game? We will be playing them again in 2 weeks time in the semi final. That is the one we should be focusing all our attention on.

Yes now that Saints are fieldiing their strongest team.
We go into the semi with a defeat, we aren't going to win it.
We need to beat them and with something in reserve.
