A virtul new team knocked together at the eleventh hour is further down the road than us at the present moment....really...that's damning if true..whatever the reality i'm expecting a fax win on sunday,last weeks shambles can't be allowed a repeat.

Would anybody be too surprised if Leigh did get the result as this 11th hour knocked together team are full of experienced quality players, their own and the additions from Saints.
As shown last week against Toulouse where they played for the full 80 minutes as a unit they are further down the road form wise coming into this game.

Fax form in reality so far amounts to showing nothing much preseason and last weeks shambles to go on, with settled team selection still not decided by a long way for a number of reasons.

My main concern goes back over a few seasons and the almost mandatory slow start which is being repeated again with Fax just doing the same easy to read plays and giving penalty after penalty after penalty away.
It's one thing to say we know we need to improve but not as easy to do it as we've seen often enough in the past.

Of course I'm hoping for a Fax win but I'm uneasy about it based on the above precisely because of how big a season it could be for us.

I could have written that word for word. The frustrating thing about it is that almost everyone is in agreement with it, barring the coach.

Such a hard game to call after last weeks results.

Did Fax simply not bother as they thought they couldn't win, or are they simply that bad?
Are Leigh a complete team and DR what makes them one?

I think our lack of creativity will be our downfall and I am sadly going for a Leigh win by two tries.

Come on Pete, Fax must be favourites ,you have a settled Squad, and yer own spin doctor the BFG keeps telling us all how Fax are nailed on for a top 4 spot,we on the other hand have a so called cobbled together side, with a small pack, as BFG has described us, a banker Fax win.
