Wigan are due to play there the night before against Huddersfield.

Last time this happened, it was claimed that it was impossible to change the pitch around in 24 hours.

Will Wigan be forced to Widnes again?

Discuss.

Can you please delete this thread and Let Wendall post it - he's frothing at the mouth right now!
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

Doubt it, I reckon it'll just be switched to the sunday.

Whatever the outcome, seeing as the Blackpool directors saw fit to thank Wigan RL for there flexibility it would appear they at least had a say in proceedings.

Without getting ahead of ourselves there must be a chance that this game could confirm us as Minor Premiers, and we may be at an advantage if we play after Wire have played, so a switch to late Sunday could be good...

OK, I understand.

As there seems to be a lack of Wire players getting a new haircut, or their legs waxed this week, I will do the decent thing, and delete it.

Thanks for the advice.

I worked in Warrington for 8 years. I must be really scary, because no-one beat me up at all, any day.

Maybe you are all just a gang of half-Scouse pussies?

No mate, I didn't.

I am willing to go next March though, if you are paying.

PS, I worked in Dallam. I don't think it gets any worse than that.

Rugby games obviously take less preparing for!!! (tongue in cheek but may be some truth on the corporate/tv side!)

I have always presumed, rightly or wrongly, (with little foundation!) that at the centre of it there's a little bit of power games going on between Whelan and Lenighan, based on the former not getting all his own way when he sold the rugby.
