It’s strange how fans of different teams have such different thoughts. I think we struggle with attack close to the line considering the possession we invariably have. Lomax is a brilliant player and everything comes from him but if Welsby has a quiet day (as yesterday) we can struggle. We’ve missed Dodd hugely which has impacted our attack.

It’s a reason why I’m hoping we get an assistant focusing on attack next season. Briers has done a brilliant job with Wigan on that score. Defensively we are still outstanding and the way we started yesterday was a blueprint to how to play knockout rugby.

Bar Friday Wigans attack has looked much better than ours, with options everywhere especially with Field coming into the line. I think Cust was a huge loss for you.

Exactly this Stu. Wigan have comfortably had the best attack this year and to suggest we struggle to score based on that one game on Friday is utter nonsense.

On the Lomax kicking it was clear that the coaching staff (or Lomax himself) were targeting Sneyd who has the turning circle of an oil tanker. Brilliantly executed by Lomax without doubt. Not something, I would suggest, that would be so effective against a better, more agile defence.

Congrats on the 4th consecutive final. I have a feeling you'll turn it into the 4th consecutive win.

We certainly owe Leeds. I still have scars from 07, 08, 09 and 11. I’m a Utd fan and Old Trafford was my most hated ground around that time especially given our loss in 2010 against Wigan too!

A lot will depend on the disciplinary. Whilst I will have no complaints if Knowles gets a ban I’m unhappy with the media focus on Welsby. C4- nothing said, Amor and Wilson call it a brilliant shot.

Sky- with JJB as a Leeds employee and O Connor with his son playing for Leeds have magnified it to the point where there is pressure on the RFL now.

All i'm saying is that we should have a few more options in the event our attack (which i consider to be far more effective and more enjoyable to watch) is off-key.

Saints lack much of the creativity and flair we have, but they execute planned moves to perfection every single game.

In game where we are struggling with out timing and/or a key strike player out injured it would be great to have something like that to fall back on. And it takes the focus off the usual suspects/moves.

For example, instead of Field taking the ball out of the back 30 yards out, slide the ball through for him to run onto, a move we have rarely if ever done for the fasted players in the league, or back on the angle to Marshall on the other side.

Well, you have half a point. But you must admit, it would be a novelty if Saints were not presented on TV as the blue-eyed boys?
