GIANTS v London
Saints vs Wigan
Cats vs Wire
Leigh vs Leeds

Should be a win and another semi final appearance. Couldn't have asked for much more. With London's top 8 ambitions gone out of the window they will be putting everything into this game to make it a decent season for them.

As good a draw as we could have expected.Sure I read somewhere that all 4 games are to televised,which means the crowd figure at ours is bound to be low,not that it would have been big anyway with no tv coverage.

The Broncs have some decent players this time,I honestly think if they had a different coach they would have performed much better than what they have done.

Have the BBC ever broadcast from Perpignan,or would that be too expensive for them.

Cats v Wire & Wigan v Saints will def be shown.

Leigh vs Leeds,the tv will go there looking for a giant killing,so maybe our game might get left off tv by sky.

All in all a pretty good tie. No one should take London lightly, as defleppard pointed out they have some talented players in their squad. They can be a useful side, and are capable of beating anyone on their day. But at home we definitely ought to be the favourites.

The Wigan-Saints and Catalans-Wire games are ones to savour. I wouldn't like to have to pick the winner in either one. Plus it does mean that if we do beat London two of the top teams will be out.

Anyone else fancy a Fartown vs Leeds final?

Think Pia v Widnes was once on BBC and Justin Morgan was the coach of Pia.

Not counting any chickens but Neutral Neutral
I quite like the idea of a Fartown v Saints or Warrington, and a chance of revenge.

pray pray pray pray

Good draw against the second weakest side on paper and at home. Still they have some quality players and if we start dreaming of the semi final before this game then we might never get there.

Must be pumped up for this game, as London only have the CC to play for this season.
It would take a super effort to reach the top eight from here. So they will be really up for this game to save their season.

Sky TV have a Friday night slot and a Sunday evening slot in their schedules.They will def broadcast on the Friday night.Sunday maybe.
BBC TV will no doubt have a Saturday afternoon or early evening game,and one on Sunday afternoon.
