Will not be back against us with something near our full team out at home but don't think this will be easy.

Leigh will have circled this fixture at the start of the season, have got better week on week, have plenty of ex Wiganers in the side and should bring a few thousand fans!

Glad to have them in superleague.

Wigan 20-18 Leigh

We expect to bring between 4,000 - 5,000,the atmosphere should be great , as you say we will have , Higham,Hock, Hansen, Tickle, and Hopkins in our team to add the spice.Bring it on.

Cherry also knows at the LSV it will (possibly) be a different story. All if and but's at this point. Any one of us could be in bad form at that point but summer time is the time we click start to click into gear annually. We are the best team in the country and have the firepower in the reserves. I fully expect a few injuries for a few of your senior players come June and could leave you out to dry somewhat. The key to your season is keeping your stalwarts fit and progressing the likes of Reynolds in the process. You won't go down, no chance of that, you have far too much for the best of what the championship can offer. That is a thing in the past for you now. I fully expect you to gradually progress year on year. Castleford are easily the best example of rising from the dead. They have a superb side, thats why i predicted them to finish 3rd but have the same problem you have. Depth. It's a huge, huge mountain in this league to cover for a first teamer. I must admit i was surprised when Armstrong and Dixon decided to jump ship. Probably not so much Armstrong who i suspect maybe is a little lightweight for Super League but what i have seen of Dixon i though he was a very adequate prop. Toronto is a financially good move for him of course but he is 26!! Surely his career now hinges on Toronto making Super League whereas he could have had a good season with Leigh this year and potentially moved on. Short sighted you think Charlie?

Cherry,I have no axe to grind with Toronto, I wish them and Paul Rowley well, they have signed around 8 ex Leythers but I feel we have replaced them with better players,Reynolds and Drinkwater are forming a very potent partnership at the moment , in Mitch Brown we have young confident Aussie at full back, to big centres in Tonga and Ben Crooks, our Pack speaks for itself, the last 2 games showed we can defend and defend well this season.

I have said Wigan are the BEST SL side this season and for me a cert for the GF, maybe getting to Wembley as well, Class from 1 - 17 but you never know on the night, we played A lot better than Saints last week , but I expect Wigan to be much different,all in all bring it on. :thumb:

Wow I didn't even realise Tickle was still playing never mind in SL.

Leigh fans should fill the away end and sales on half and half scarves should be through the roof :D

The big one for us is the game we can win the following week v Huddersfield at home. This one is for the fans, as long as we give it our best and come away injury free I will be happy, hope the 4000 others feel the same. Similar score to Cas for us imo, and you will target our right defence, think 20k is achievable

I'm expecting a really close game. We've seen how much Leigh raise themselves for friendlies against Wigan so their energy levels will go through the roof for a proper game.

I'm confident we'll get the win but by less then 10 points.

As mentioned previously, I think they will have a better dig at us at their place. It won't be easy but I think fitness and experience will edge it for us. 34-20, with us scoring twice in the last 10 minutes.
