Yep, they'd get my vote too.

Obviously Wigan and Warrington have been excellent, and probably slightly better than expected, but Crusaders have been a breath of fresh air. For a Noble team, they actually play quite a nice style too at times.




Yeah they have been good, again they have picked up some good results, Bradford must be sick of playing them wink.gif

If the test is the extent to which a team's performance exceeds my expectations, as opposed to which team would win if everyone had all their players fit (Leeds), then it would be Wigan for mine, as I would have placed their first 17 around 5th in the competition. Our one chance of glory is the Minor Premiership, but even if we don't win that the level of performance MM has got from the same squad as lost as many as it won last year has been superb. Crusaders actually have a good squad with plenty of players with pedigree - as has been noted they have played a surprisingly open style though. I thought Cas would be right at the bottom, and their recent form, and scintillating attack has impressed me greatly.

EW, it was just to see which team impressed you the most (live or on the box)

Yes everyone expected Leeds or Saints at the Top, But we now have Wigan / Wires (good for the game, 2 fresh teams)

Your right though, Wigan, different manager same players, wow this season.

But for me, Leeds have impressed me the most, attitude in both games, we played them in, plus good wins in the cup (hull & wigan)and now they are on the edges of the top 4 ( really hope they blow up sometime soon wink.gif )
thanks for your input

The Best team Wires have played this season are Leeds, then Wigan followed by Cas.


over to you guys.


EDIT, i did try to put all the teams on the POLL bit so you could vote, but i can't seem to master it.

if some kind person could do it, i would be interested in the result.


Well done to Saints.


Here's to playing you another 2/3 times again this year.



I ask the other week who is the best time you have played....



100% Saints are the best Wires have played..........their defense for mine brillant, we all know how good Saints attack.


Can Wires win anything this year........not sure now.



RL what a game.

I would say Saints are the best team Wire have faced so far.

The way they took their chances, with the team of kids and many stars like Eastmond, Gidley and co missing.

Saints should have been beaten last night but they did the simple things right, thats what impressed me.
