Marshall may be out for a month with a shoulder injury, Leuluai also has a knock and is 50/50 and Powell still needs to pass a head-test. They're doing a fitness test on Greenwood on Friday.

Let's hope it's mind-games. If not, might be yet another long 80 minutes this weekend.

Fair play to Marshall playing on with that on Saturday then.

That's near enough decided me about whether to take Saturday night off work and watch it all as it happens.

I'm just weary of going to or tuning in to these big games when hopes are so high, only to watch Wigan be systematically destroyed.

I may sound disloyal, but this season reminds me of the 1970s, a decade during which it seemed to take us an age to realise that a once-great team had gone and that their replacements were not (and never would be) up to the job of doing the Cherry and White proud.

Let's not kid ourselves. They can talk all they want about last-minute checks, but those four will not be playing, otherwise I'm sure Lam wouldn't even have mentioned them. Sadly, it'll be no contest.

This squad is probably the worst one in my lifetime.

It just depends how old/young you are.

I say get yourself to the game. As cliche as it may be, we need to support the team through good and bad times. Not only go when we’re winning. Wigan keep all of the proceeds from Magic Weekend tickets that they sell too, so your £20 can go towards a new signing - OK, not a long way :lol:

Yep, this side would stick 50 on the 2007 team for starters!

I'd say we are about 4 league points better than we were in our 'relegation battle' season. Which is just about the difference between where we are now and where we were then at this half-way stage.

People keep saying that this is the worst squad ever, but we won the grand final last year with a pretty similar squad.

We lost Tomkins, Bateman and Sutton yes, but surely that doesn’t make the difference between a grand final winning team, and “the worst squad in my lifetime”.
