Phil Clarke "Wigan have now gone over two hours without conceding a try".

What happened next?

Good performance by Wigan.

Decent game in poor conditions.
Just because you think everyone hates you doesn't mean they don't.

That McClennan interview in full... "boo hoo big naughty boys with rough tackling... it's not fair... cheating wrestlers... Tomkins should have been penalised for launching his chin into lovely Ablett's arm, and as we run the disciplinary all our men will be playing again next week... boo hoo finishing top is for cheating sissies..."

Add McClennan to the list of coaches that have been owned by Wigan tactically this season.

After the last two games performances I am starting to get the feeling that we have maybe given Maguire too much of the personal credit for the Wigan upsurge this season, when in fact Shaun Wane has been a major part particularly in terms of motivation and defensive organisation. Hopefully he will be the natural successor at Wigan when Maguire inevitably returns home. I believe we will be in good hands.

Nope, she sits quietly talking to clowns like you on here



A lot of Yorkshiremen believe that when God created the world, he made it with perfect balance.
He balanced the hot areas with the cold areas. the dry areas with the wet areas.
And, in creating Yorkshire, he created the most glorious place on earth - full of majestic beauty and sporting giants.........and for balance he created....... Lancashire.

Very disappointed with Ablett and Bailey decisions,


the ablett decision was always going to be 'on report', bailey's was the poor decision, before the tackle was complete he was blowing his whistle and shouting 'on report', he knew full well what had gone on.

But why though? The incident was clear and in my view worse than two recent sendings off I've witnessed that were more poor technique than malicious (Coley v Catalans, Boyle v Wigan). Ganson generally is not adverse to getting out the red card.

Prior to the game, naturally I was up for Leeds, but the way they played put me right off. I was up for Wigan after a short while, Leeds played the game disgracefully and Wigan played it right.

Ablett should have walked, and for me he should get a 4 game ban, this was worse than any high tackle we see week in week out.

Bailey should have walked and he needs a proper punishment. There was no excuse for what he did, and it was just lucky that a Wigan player was not attempting to tackle round the waist.

Well played Wigan, thought the first try was excellent, they used the overlap really well, and they played some nice stuff despite the weather.

Wigan seem to have learnt a lot from their mistakes in terms of selecting more props and playing Deacon as a kicker. Leeds weren't as clever as Wire though. Can you imagine what Briers would have done to Goulding? It would have been a massacre on that wing.

Very strange tactics from Leeds not targeting Goulding who was clearly injured.

first, the position of the players, the 'hit' will have been shielded from ganson by them. second, he only blew the whistle in the first place for ablett being offside. third, ignore the wigan players reaction, they were 'protecting a team mate who'd just got clobbered. the wigan fans will have had the best view of the challenge as they will have seen just how high ablett's arms were, tv viewers will have seen it as a shocker because of their viewing angle too. to the leeds fans in the east stand it will have looked ok.

he's not averse to giving out red cards which makes me think if he'd have had a clear view on it he would have. you can't dole out cards based on how loud players and fans shout!

Yep, Ganson would have sent him off had he seen that IMHO. You can't criticise Ganson for that. That said, I thought the ref was allowed to ask the VR for their opinion on incidents like this...
