Does anyone think we can win this one? I think it depends on what teams both coaches pick. The league is probably more important to London than the cup, although I still think they will end up bottom. Remember we beat them at The Shay last season and ran them close at their place. Injuries will maybe cost us but if everything else goes our way who knows? Up The Fax!

I'm not sure how much the money increases as you go into the next round. I think London have a tight budget and a generous owner, so I think they may want to go as far as they can. But I also think that league survival has to be key for them, so will they be prepared to go with a weaker side to protect some of their key players? I think Wardy is a very good young coach and he will know that they won't win the cup but they could stay in the league if they keep putting a shift in.

So taking the splinters out of my arris, I think London will come with a weakened side with a focus on their league games as being more important.

We can win this one as we certainly need the cash and the kudos!

The sad reality is that if we play like we did on Sunday London could rest half their team and still put a massive score on us given how poor our defence has been. Its going to take a massive effort from us to get within 20 points. Lets hope the Fax we remember from last season show up.

Going on form it's London all the way as our defense is like a sieve.

I will be looking at this game as another marker as to any improvement.

The best i'm hoping is at least give a good account of ourselves and don't pick up any serious injuries.

For those about to be Faxed I salute you.

When we (Leigh) played them in a pre-season friendly, they nilled us and we never came close to scoring really. Good luck anyway, but after tomorrow I guess both our clubs can just concentrate on the league, But your game should be closer than ours.

Pete to answer your first Question,there was a bit of a kerfuffle in Ladbrokes in Leigh yesterday,a guy went to put a bet on Leigh beating HKR,the cashier refused to put the bet on and said he must be crazy.Another customer said, He will be backing Fax to beat London next,the bloke replied, I’m NOT that Crazy.lol.

Many a true word spoken in jest Mr Caroli. We have at least eight 1st teamers out tonight and as much as we like our reserve system the lads coming in are just not ready for championship football never mind facing SL teams. You can maybe get away with putting two or three in but with half a team of young 'uns we've no chance. Damage limitation is the name of the game and hopefully a good performance with a view to the Future. Up The Fax!

Speaking of bookies a double on London -14.5 and Hull KR -18.5 looks to be printing money. Realistically I would have wanted about 24-28 start in our game to even have to think about it and probably at least the same for Leigh.
