excellent performance from the pies. that's the hubcap sorted. good to see briers emptied his pockets before washing his shorts last week and tompkins(sp?) was able to turn out.
foxes or poor people?

Reminded me of our lots defeat in the cup.

Though to be fair to us, our average age was about 13 and we did score twice.

0 46 FT. 26 points for Pat Richards. Good display from Wigan, but pretty poor from Hull.


That's the only good thing to come out of tonight for me, my fantasy teams points tally will look good this week.

Fairplay to a very clever smart ###### comment sam.

However at least Tomkins turns up, turns out and gives 100% every time he's given the opportunity.

Never mind 3D tv i watched it with my wigan eye patch on tonight. As i was a wigan fan for the game i thought i'd go for the full "wigan experience" and watch it through one eye. I wasn't disappointed, didn't see any of the wigan forward passes or another o'loughlin high shot but did see yeamans head shaker on goulding. Highlight of the night for me was pat richards miming his biggest ever imaginary video screen to silverwood, it was fu**in massive, you've gotta love the guy. Thought deacon slotted in well with a couple of tremendous passes and the hiding hull took tonight means our points difference is worth another point compared to hulls. A great night for leeds and a strangely pleasurable experience supporting wigan.

Performance of the year so far, from any team.

As bad as Hull were, that was Wigan's doing and some of the passing for the tries was sublime (O'Loughlin, Tomkins and Deacon).

If they play like that for the rest of the year, the rest may as well finish now.

Good one.

Nice to see that Tomkins has had more good performances in 12 months than that waster Briers has had in a whole career.

I'd like to say that we will get our own back in the GF, but Wire won't make it.

I never like to read too much into any one game, however I think that game is an indication of how poor SL is. Wigan were fine and scored some great tries this is not an attempt to undermine Wigan at all, they have proved consistency and that they are likely to finish as the best team this year. However when the 4th best team can get niled like that it says alot about the league. Hull had injuries to be sure but Wigan had some missing and where backing up from a shorter period. If someone had quoted me that score without the teams I would have expected top versus some where near bottom, not 4th place.

Saints too have struggled to back up this year, beating Wigan but then not playing to the same intensity for weeks later. I'm not a huge fan of saying that the NRL is better than SL, but on this evidence I can't see much different happening come the internationals at the end of the year.

Super League the only place in the world where people still believe that less competitors and a closed market to new competition will improve the quality of the product.

Even the Chinese and the Cubans gave up on these marxist principles years ago.


SL with a reduced number of competitors and a closed market = North Korea.

I wouldn't like to read a post where you did attempt to undermine Wigan, bw. There are blow out scores even in the NRL. As regards FC's prospects, and to give bw and 3tools a lift by allowing them to reminisce about sadder times for Wigan, in the same year Wigan lost 75-0 to Saints and 70-0 to Leeds they also beat those teams. At full strength either team would hold their own in the NRL.

Even when you consider Hull were missing their key senior pros, to be so shapeless in your structure is really quite unforgivable. When Wigan kept attacking Hull's right edge, to try nothing to rectify it is bizarre.

Agar must be on borrowed time, surely.

Any of you lot coming over tomorrow?

Can't say I blame you if not, we had a nightmare journey to the DW on a Friday night a while back and only scraped in for kick off. The nightmare was making it there at all.... sad.gif

Come to think of it, the journey home wasn't much fun either.

Especially as some joker though it would be a good idea to reduce the M62 to the width of a back tenfoot.

Hope the Wigan fans had a better journey home last night. Mind you, they probably wouldn't have been bothered.

Brown noser.
Wigan really didn't have to work that hard for that did they, Hull were terrible, probably the worst performance of any team this season.

To be fair to Hull, they played far worse the other week at Waky, so they have improved. wacko.gif

Indeed, what kind of comp would see 5th placed Warriors stuffed 40-6 against Melbourne?

Or the 4th placed Roosters getting 60 stuck on them by the terrible Bulldogs.

What a nonsense post. Best club in league gives off-form club a hiding shocker!

I still think fourth place might be decided at the K.C on the last day of the season despite hulls woeful display last night, but with leeds getting players back every week i would make the trip eastwards with a lot more confidence. Hull fans on here have been honest in their appraisals of the team and after seeing them three times in three weeks i'd say their chances of making any sort of impact on the play offs is fading fast. They certainly missed their big names sat in the stands but even with the likes of o'meley, fitzgibbon, tickle etc available i think they've peaked for this season. I hope they suprise me come play off time, preferrably from fifth spot.
