In terms of the relegation battle, London have benfited twice from Saints resting players. They still weren't gimmes and needed winning but theres 4 points more than London may have got otherwise.

This week Leeds are the main beneficiaries of last weekends debarcle in France. That might just be enough for Leeds to finally survive.

Right now I can't see any other team winning SL other than Saints and they're likely to get the treble.

I doubt we'll beat Wigan this weekend so the bottom is likely to become a three way with us, London and Wakey now.

Shudds have got to be in there somewhere with their remaining games, I'll show my @rris on't town hall steps if KR are still involved on the last day.

I've supported Rovers for 40+ years, I know we have the ability to shoot ourselves in the foot when everything looks good. However, this time, I hope you're right.

Do you think there will be the same uproar from certain fans that warrington are resting so many players?


Quite ironic that Saints should face a weakened side, although may of Wires changes are not strictly by choice, unlike Saints who fielded a deliberately weakened side and their 17 is still stronger, in terms of their best 17, than Saints put out the other week :oops:

Saints v Wigan grand final nailed on. Warrington are shot. They are now closer to the bottom of the table as they are to the top. Worryingly, Wigan seem to be peaking at the right time. If it was saints v Warrington GF we would win easily but against Wigan they can always produce a performance when it matters
The Leigh and Wakefield fans mentality......

Say something negative about any other team than theirs - Its an opinion

Say something negative about Leigh and Wakefield - TROLL

Saints only rested Fages and Percival the likes of our top players in Coote, Walmsley, Roby and Morgan were injured it looked as though Warrington rested more players in Clark, King, Philbin, Patton and Cooper only Austin, Hughes, Charnley were declared injured with Lineham suspended.

Holbrook puts more trust in the younger players and has been using them quite frequently since the Easter Weekend so its not really as manipulated as it seems. An example of that is James Roby who has been injured the majority of the season and has only played 50% of our games, Holbrook has been using Smith and Bentley at 9 and they have gained valuable game time experience from it.

The new young dynasty of super saints is coming to a ground near you.
Percival-Lomax--Grace-Thompson-Makinson-Swift-Walmsley, not Eastmond...the future is coming.

It'll be interesting if Leeds force their way into the 5!
22 - 19 - 4

Warrington led 16-2 in Saturday's Grand Final, but their joy was short-lived as Wigan roared back to win the Super League title and extend the Wire's 58-year wait to be champions

“The bond between the players is something I’ve never had with any other club. Everyone comes into one and we’re all one group. Whenever we get a new signing, everyone just embraces the culture. It’s what I love about this club and I just can’t wait for the journey ahead.”

He’s better at maths than you are at English!

It’s mathematically possible, but it’s not going to happen.

This Leeds team has crumbled when the pressure of expectation has got on top of them this season, hence the regular collapses from winning positions in games.
If they somehow managed to get into the five, with no pressure on them and with a strong run of form, going to Wigan away or Hull away in week one would be a beautiful thing and should be mildly terrifying for those teams.

It’s not going to happen for a start for it to be possible it would mean London winning their next two games and leeds winning all the remaining 4 games, if those 2 things happen I’ll eat my hat
