It’s cup final day

Well having missed watching last years cup final live I'm actually going to be able to settle down and take in the BBC coverage of this year's clash between Warrington and Leeds. 
For those going the first sell out cup final for quite a few years does show some promise for Rugby League and hopefully the game lives up to it's billing.

It's going to be a close one I think, maybe not in the score but certainly on the pitch. I could see a few late tries open up a gap in the scoreline maybe?

Some interesting bets to be had but I don't think I'll be throwing money at this one – if I did I'd be backing Warrington to repeat their success of last season. What do you reckon?
