Stevo claims these two teams WILL meet in the Grand Final

This weekend Wigan Warriors battle Hull KR after St Helens head over to France having secured their place in a 10th consecutive semi-final with a win over Warrington Wolves.

The last time Saints missed out on the semi-finals was back in 2013 after a defeat to Leeds Rhinos.

Tonight they continue their pursuit of a fifth consecutive title against Catalans Dragons in a mouth watering semi-final.

Tough to call, former Sky Sports commentator Stevo has backed St Helens and then Wigan to make the decider:

“Wow, toss a coin, simple as that. It’s going to be very, very tough.

“Also depends on the weather. At this time of year, it can still be quite hot down in the south of France and that may well be an advantage to the Catalan players.

“But if it’s overcast and maybe not as warm as what they expect, then I’d have to say that St Helens would have a good chance of just snaking through. When I mention snaked through, I don’t think there’s going to be many points between them.

“I’m going to go Wigan and St Helens.”

He also spoke about ensuring the game is a sell out:

“Look, in the olden golden days, even I can remember the fact that at the start of the season you started saving up to go to Wembley. Now we’ve got to get that same attitude about we’ve got to go to Manchester, we’ve got to go to Old Trafford.

“People like IMG have got to start promoting it more than a couple of months before the Grand Final, they should be doing it in the off season of saying, we are going to give you great value for money if you purchase your grand final tickets now!

“Don’t wait six months later and find out who’s going to be there. Put them in a situation where you get a family ticket, et cetera, and so forth. We’ve got to come out and give something back to the fans instead of just clobbering them with saying, oh, we’ve got to put another 15% or 10% on top.

“Let’s start taking 20% off and let’s get the crowds back in there and get them back into the swing of things. When I was a young kid, my dad would take me down to Wembley and I’d look forward to it, and we didn’t even know it was going to be there.”
