Although Wigan and Saints have all the pedigree, especially in SL finals, as you have seen over the past few seasons, the favourite doesn't always win the big prize.
Having said that, both Warrington and Cas would need a huge lift in form and Salford, although playing some great stuff at the moment, lack experience in play off rugby but, in a season full of surprises, expect the unexpected.

With our form we've all dismissed ourselves (with the exception of one).

It was a very long & very carefully planned strategy to be fair...

I think it will be a St Helens v Wigan grand final with Wigan winning.

No other team has a chance

Of course they have. I don't know where all this has come from. If Saints perform anywhere near their best at Old Trafford they should beat us by a couple of scores (assuming both teams get there).

Next season I'm hoping we can close the gap.

Its come from the evidence that Saints players lose their composure in the pressure games.

This has happened for several years now, were as Wigan are proven to be effective in key games.

He is a Leeds fan.

Anyway his point is very valid. Salford have done very well so far but will have to step up a huge amount in intensity to even compete with a zoned in play off series Wigan at DW.

That said i hope they do. Be nice to see another team make a run in the play offs.
What you looking at?....Butt Head!!
