    NO-ONE is better placed than Michael Monaghan to judge the clash between Super League's joint leading try scorers at Headingley tomorrow night, Friday.

    Wolves' Chris Hicks and Leeds' Scott Donald have each scored 10 tries during 2008 so far and know each other well having played on opposite flanks for Manly Sea Eagles in the NRL for four seasons.

    Monaghan also played with the duo at the Sea Eagles and will be hoping to help his Wolves teammate win the contest, which could see Hicks go head to head with left winger Donald if Stuart Reardon's comeback allows him to return to the right flank.

    But Monaghan has warned that the tussle could prove to be irrelevant if Wolves play as badly as they did at Wakefield.

    "It will be an interesting contest between them but if we keep dropping as much ball then Hicksy will struggle to get points," he said.

    "They're very different players. Obviously with Scotty Donald, most of his tries come from speed, beating guys on the outside. Hicksy scores a lot by beating guys, he's got a good fend and he's very strong.

    advertisement"They're definitely different players but they're both equally effective.

    "But we don't really need to worry about dealing with Scott Donald. We've got bigger issues to deal with at the moment."

    And to Monaghan and the rest of the Wolves set-up, those issues are clear.

    That doesn't bother me. Monaghan has gone.

    We need to build a bridge and get over it.

    I'd say 4/5 and we would've put up a bit of a fight last night.

    LeStrange is giving better service than Monas.  And doesn't run in concentric circles.
