It was a very poor seller that STADIUM OF LIGHT won at Stratford but this isn't much better. The ground won't bother Shaun Harris' charge and neither will the extra yardage and he's difficult to oppose. Motou was taking on much better opposition when last seen and won't be far away if fully fit following 15 months on the sidelines but none of the others have done enough to suggest they will be winning any time soon. The returning Lord Landen may be the best of them under Paddy Brennan.
