    Default Wigan or Salford?

    So who would you like us to play in the GF? Wigan know how to win the very big ones, but surely we’d prefer to play them over Salford after that drubbing tonight?!

    Salford. Just because I want them to get to the final and it is a good thing for the game to have a different team there.

    Salford getting to a GF at Old Trafford would be amazing. The atmosphere would be brilliant

    If Wigan get there I hope O’Loughlin plays, he’s way off the pace.

    Completely agree, but if that's the case I'd love to annihilate Wigan at Old Trafford.

    I really believed we’d see you off tonight. Having topped the league unchallenged from week one, and struggled in the few ‘must win’ games I thought you were ours for the taking.
    Time for a rethink. Wouldn’t surprise me now if it’s a Saints Salford final

    Well played!

    I still think Wigan will win, but I think tonight will have taken a lot out of Wigan..

    Salford will have lots of confidence after tonight

    I agree with the comments that if we play like we did tonight we’ll beat anyone. For the good of the game I’d like it to be Salford.
    Forwards win games. The backs decide by how much.

    A honest assessment. You can't afford passengers in the pack against Safofd never mind Walmsley & Thompson. A few need a serious look at themselves before next week.

    Also as others alluded to O'Loughlin isn't having anywhere near the effect he once did. Starting him was a huge error by Lam tonight

    My only worry is a new team at Old Trafford isn't great if it's only in front of 60,000

    Considering the ‘new team’ is walking distance from Old Trafford, I can’t see a problem with numbers

    Can't agree , it might a short walk but their fan base is tiny , if we're looking for a big crowd it has to be your lot

    They have a hardcore 4000 fans. Were they getting another 25k from?

    I think they'd sell more than Wigan personally. There are a lot of sports fans in Manchester who would get behind this as a night out. They'd take 10,000-12,000 genuine fans, all those who haven't been in a while and basically anyone that's ever watched Salford in the past would go.

    Would prefer to meet Salford in the final, they have played a lot of good rugby this season not all this boring stuff from wire and the goons.

    Yeah if Salford got there it would be a real event. They’d take loads of casual fans and some non fans just there for the experience

    NFL sells out 4 London games every year and loads of the people there aren’t really into American Football - it’s just an event to be seen at

    2 clubs who claim to be among the best supported teams couldn't top 65,000 last year so I wouldn't count on there necessarily being a massive difference between the Wigan and Salford turnout. I think we'll take a massive following regardless.

    I think Salford can take them next week. It will be hard for Wigan to lift themselves and Salford will walk out 10ft tall. I do agree though that it won’t matter if we play like tonight

    Yes. good for the game. Salford deserve it. Think it would be a really good game. Despite tonight Saints wouldn't be nailed on.
    Very exciting.

    I also think Salford have a big advantage with having so many ex-Wiganers playing for them.

    Be interesting, Salford going into the game on the back of a good win, Wigan on the back of being humiliated. If it was a Wane team i'd back Wigan to ease through all day but their recent run masked some inconsistant performances and they played a lot of teams who were dire at good times for themselves.

    I think either way Wigan will scrape it. I hope its a physical game because if Wigan get dragged into a fight they could struggle against us in the final

    Good points. If Wigan do get through it will be on the back of 3 weeks of hard, draining rugby

    Interesting my mate Smithy said Wigan will smash Salford. No they wont it will be a war and I hope Salford win but the underdog rarely does. However it will be a WAR. Come on Saints.
