On this day, Wigan won their last trophy and its been barren for almost 12 years now.


On the same day, Deep Space 1 was launched: http://en.wikipedia....ki/Deep_Space_1


Is this any co-incidence?

Perhaps its searching the stars for Wigan's next trophy?

Indeed, Just out of interest terrywebbisgod, What is your thought on the CC Final????


i ask as NE thinks its the MM cup.


my opinion on the CC as a neutral for most of my 12 visits (seen Wires twice) Leeds fans have travelled in their thousands for years and would love to see Leeds in a final.

Having being a ball boy in the CC final in 1983 I love it, to me it's the pinnacle of achievment in RL having more history than the GF which is a super league invention anyway, long may the CC continue.

Not quite. Championship play-offs precede SL by a long way and were regarded as just as important as the CC by the clubs. For the players, however, the CC was always the pinnacle.

8 years to be precise, i was there to watch them beat saints in the CC final, this year they are nailed on for the minors and i wouldn't bet against them lifting the championship either.



just out of interest have leeds managed to match widnes all time trophy haul yet????
