Hope Chris Chester installs that into the players this week.

Our chance for them to experience the real pressure of successful teams winning big games.

Would be wonderful revenge for the 1968 watersplash final.

A win at Headingley should ensure our place in the top 8 and despite Leeds having easy matches with Salford and Widnes, it will leave them very nervous about making the top 8.

One high performance game under pressure should be enough.

The danger is losing, then we have 2 more matches of even greater pressure.

Win on Friday then experiment if you must CC but tinkering has got us into this predicament.

Gutted to be on holiday abroad for this one but at least Sky have saved the day so I will be able to watch the game after all and cheer on the boys.

I really thought Saturday's game v Catalans was that type of importance?

Actually Leeds IS the cup final.
If we'd beaten Catalan we could still have been dragged into 9th if everybody else won their games.

Now as we stand if we beat Leeds we are guaranteed a top 8 finish. Big game.

We were lucky that Cas beat Leeds yesterday really!

We need to go all out to win this game on Friday, if we lose it is looking highly likely that we will be in the middle 8s.

Nervy time, as much as I hate to say this, our forwards are not like Catalans or Castlefords, they are big, but they are not rough or mean but they can play for 60 mins, I hope that does it ?
However, our backs are brill so here goes,
Up the trin !

Think this week could really be the cup final for us.

A win and we are on the 8, but a defeat and it really does start to look a little iffy.

As Stevo used to say 'they need to get the message out to them'
