The final round of the Qualifiers approaches, with that all important stage of survival fast approaching.
For some, it is one final fling, but others? A nerve wrecking 80 minutes that will define their season but the frequently asked question. Who will survive?! Find out below!
London Broncos Vs Leigh Centurions
Starting off with the trip to the Capital as London Broncos take on Leigh Centurions.
London have made two changes from their loss at Widnes; Andy Ackers and Api Pewhairangi are absent, coming in are Michael Channing and Ben Hellewell coming in.
Leigh meanwhile, make three changes as Cory Paterson, Mitch Brown and Samisoni Langi are absent following the big win over Halifax, but Matthew Dawson, Atelea Vea and James Green all return.
A fairly tough game to call, both clubs being full-time and all but have plenty to play for, despite being in different situations.
London have been impressive at home all season and will want to have a positive send off from 2017.
It just may happen considering they have retained much of their squad throughout the Qualifiers, so transition won’t be an issue.
Jarrod Sammut and William Barthau’s combination is exciting but has to be clinical.
Both have to link up with the pack efficiently as Leigh’s strong point in how they’ve remained competitive is their forward pack.
Tom Spencer, Mark Ioane, Matt Garside and Eddie Battye have to strong going forward, as well as Jay Pitts for extra support in the back row.
But they must start quickly as Leigh will be eager to build some momentum ahead of their date in the Million Pound Game next week.
Paterson’s absence may hinder them here but former World Champion Glenn Stewart is capable of leading by example.
That and having Harrison Hansen, Antoni Maria and Sam Hopkins to back-up in going forward, laying the platform down for Ben Reynolds and Josh Drinkwater to line-up at half-back.
But this match will probably be won on attitude, which is where London have the advantage.
As aforementioned, as well as speed and skill, they have less pressure on them, whereas Leigh might just save themselves for the Million Pound Game.
Not to say Leigh definitely won’t win, but it looks unlikely, they’ll have too much focus on such an occasion to maintain their Super League status, something they worked over ten years to attain so why would they give it up now?!
