JJB anticipates a classic Cup clash with St Helens

Leeds veteran Jamie Jones-Buchanan is epxecting a game that the fans can really enjoy when the Rhinos meet St Helens in the Challenge Cup semi-final at Warrington this Friday.

The back rower feels that league form will be irrelevant, although St Helens may be given a boost by good memories of playing a Warrington.

“I think this will be a massive game and I don’t think you can read too much into the league form between the two sides this season,” he said.

“We have had too comprehensive wins over St Helens when the lads have played really well. However, I think semi finals are different gravy and in terms of positive affirmations.

“Saints have had a lot of good results at Warrington in recent years and they have gone there and recorded some big wins.

“When you go to a place and you’ve got a good feeling about it, a bit like us when we go to Old Trafford, and the happy memories come flooding back to you it can really give you a spark.

“I expect St Helens to be really, really good on Friday night and I am expecting a classic semi final.”
