Dunno how we're ahead, other than taking what few chances we actually got to a position to create.
Sounds scrappy, but in a way, engrossing if frustrating.
C'mon Wires, close this one out.....

Carvell can take a lot of the credit for that try.

Idiot.
And when they found our shadows
Grouped around the TV sets
They ran down every lead
They repeated every test
They checked out all the data on their lists
And then the alien anthropologists
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
For our sad demise
They logged the only explanation left
This species has amused itself to death
No tears to cry no feelings left
This species has amused itself to death

How did Silverwood miss that forward pass?

Woods made all the difference in that game, had pretty much the opposite game to a quite frankly awful Carvell. Warrington were struggling massively before Woods came on and he gave them a huge amount of go forward. Actually the whole of Warringtons pack was superb, other than the aforementioned Carvell obviously.

That was such a big important win.
Even though we were sh! te for 25 mins, we kept in range, and somehow got on top.
Sounded scrappy, sounded enthralling, wish I could have been there.......

Thought I would nip in before the Wire taunts start to say that that was a very good and well deserved victory. The front row was dominant and Monaghan and Briers kicked superbly. The better side clearly won.
For Wigan, the 2 areas that we have needed to fix - controlling 7 and enforcer prop - remain the achilles heel. If the weather stays good for the next few weeks (and the play offs are early, so an Indian summer would help), we could get by with what we've got. I like the look of Farrell and Tuson, they have really come on this year. Lockers and Amos, our 2 early season stars, look like they are still coming back. We need them to get back on form. So reassuring still to be top. Not throwing myself off the pier just yet.

Warrington deserved it, theyeventually seemed to get to grip with the conditions better than Wigan. Game was a bit stop start due to all the dropped ball, but it was tense and hard and though when Warrington got in front they seemed to have control until late on it good have gone either way.

One black mark has to go once again against Briers and Mathers over the last disallowed try. The linesman flagged it, the ref chose to go to the VR to double check but Mathers and Briers showed their worst side having a real go at the linesman. Action should be taken.

that wasn't unpleasant.

when we decided to actually play the game rather than try and knock wigan off the park we were good value for the win.

carvell is a liability at times.

westwood would be coveted by everyone if he didn't look like the world's most knackered axe murderer.

harrison's hit would have been infinitely more impressive if it had been on a particularly small ballboy rather than fielden.

wigan are still in transition, but will be almost unbeatable when a few antipodeans join the club.
foxes or poor people?

Pleased with that. Tough game, there will be a lot of bruises on both sides after that, some immense defence.

Loved 3D too. Absolutely awesome!

You'd better tell Wendall! biggrin.gif

Enjoyed the match very much. I just wonder, though, was it a record for dropping the ball?

Some big hits went in too.

How the officials missed the forward pass is anyone's guess!
