Wigan v Leeds

under 42.5 match points.
The 2nd semi takes place tonight and the winnersof this match will face Warrington in the Grand Final.
For a team with so much class and a terrific attitude its not been a great 2nd half of the regular season for Wigan. Some injuries yes, but also a loss of form at an important time, Tomkins saying hes off to the NRL probably hasnt helped but it was always to be expected. Their defence though when it comes to these kinds of games can be absolutely unbelievable and as we all know defence wins these tight play off and semi final matches. Tomkins will want to leave with a winners medal and you wouldnt bet against him being the main man is this one.
Leeds as usual stutter through the season with some very odd results and one or two performances that make you wonder if they are really the team to beat. But year after year we get to semi final play offs and the Rhinos are always involved. I wouldnt say this is the strongest of the 3 teams left but at the same time you simply cannot bet against them. They won it last year from fith and that was a remarkable achievement.
This has been over the years one of the tighest most low scoring fixtures in super league and with a crack at the wolves waiting i see no reason for that to change. Both teams will be looking to defend well and not give even an inch away to the opposition, so for that reason i expect a tight match which is very exciting but not a high scoring affair.
under 42.5 with lads at 1.83
