Yeah I think we've got problems in this one. Heavy rain does not suit this team at all and you know Hull will be wanting revenge for a variety of reasons. Im sure we won't put in a performance like the Leeds one but not got a good feeling about it.

On a side note I also think Huddersfield could go really close against St Helens, if not beat them.

I was thinking the same thing myself about Huddersfield. Probably wishful thinking but it wouldn’t totally surprise me. They beat Saints away in the CC quite a few years and another repeat surprise would do for me.

Again I agree with you re ourselves against Hull. I’m really looking forward to the game but fear we may just fall short. It’s the first time in years that I’ve looked forward to a CC tie and I must admit I quite like the feeling. I’m pretty confident that both sides will put on a good show even though both teams will have some key players missing.
I think over and above a great defensive effort we will need Hastings at his very best if we are to sneak it.

It should be a cracking game, I'm really looking forward to it. Dunno whether to be pleased or not that Connor isn't playing; you never know whether he's going to be able to stay on the pitch.

I feel differently about this with Hull's injuries/suspensions. My first thought last week was that we'd probably end up losing this one. Even if you take the Clubb incident out of the equation, there was still a lot of needle when we played last time out, and so often in these situations the team who loses the first game goes on to win if they play again the week later.

With their lack of numbers in the forwards, I'd make Wigan slight favourites now, but it should still be a great game.

I think we've an excellent chance to win this one.
Connor will be a big miss for Hull FC. His replacement will be expecting our kicking game to concentrate on Jacko belting the ball as high as he can so it drops on top of their full back's head. The fb will then get tackled very hard by three or four forwards. That could take a lot of energy out of them trying to get out of their own 20-30 mtrs.

Although it has rained the ground will surely still be firm as it has been dry for weeks.
Our overall mobility and speed should see us through with hopefully a win.

I hope Hardaker has been practicing his goal kicking this week. The weather is looking pretty poor so potentially it could be a low scoring game (similar to last week maybe).

Sneyd knocks them over from the touchline with ease it seems these days. Missed a pretty easy one (for him) which ended up being the difference between the two teams.

Feeling slightly more confident than a few days ago with Ma'u and Reynolds back, although I wonder how fit they are, still have Wigan strong favourites.

Connor out is a blow, but with Connor Wynne we gain some pace and he is very strong and elusive. A bit nervous though so will be tested by your kicking game.

Hopefully a good and we are talking about the rugby this time.

Manfredi in for Clubb, only decision is do you play Manfredi and use Isa as a "middle" or give Clark a run, either way we're playing someone who hasn't had a proper game in months, not ideal for a knockout game.

I'd have Manfredi in instead of Clark too, so the same XIII. Having said that I'd keep Zack at FB for now, and put Bibby at centre. I know they had some joy by targeting French on the wing last time, but I'd keep going like that for a few weeks more to give it a proper chance before moving Zack to centre.
