Discuss the game here! (sorry about the late posting of the game threads ... I forgot!)

Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

Wigan with nothing to play for, Bulls wanting to finish on a high, Beavers last game. No brainer really. Bulls by 20, Beaver hat-trick, another 4000 pledges within 2 hours of the final whistle. tongue.gif

Bulls all the way.



Hahahaha.




Come on Wigan will bounce em, the Bulls have been awful and last game of the season with no hope to aim for and no threat of the wooden spoon to avoid. Bottom table mediocraty to settle in after 20 minutes and Wigan to stack the points on.

Sad but this maybe the biggest winning margin of the weekend.
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.

Wigan, only because Bentham isn't the ref. Otherwise it's pretty much 50/50. Isn't it? unsure.gif

Stuart Reardon for Dave Halley is the only change to the Bulls Squad for their game at Wigan on Friday.

Halley is awaiting the results of a scan, scheduled for next Monday, on the knee he injured in Carnegie 9's at Headingley last week.

I kind of suspected that Dave Halley wouldn't be fit after the injury last Wednesday at Headingley in the 9's in the game against Scotland (it was a really brutal hit up if I'm honest and the Scotland forwards showed no mercy).

The 19 - man squad in full is:

Kearney, Reardon, L'Estrange, Hall, Lynch, Sheriffe, Scruton, Finigan, Kopczak, Olbison, Menzies, Addy, Godwin, Crookes, Sykes, Whitehead, Worrincy, Langley, Platt.

MASSIVE GAME for the club because a repeat of the St Helens scoreline could un-due some of the feel good atmosphere that's around the club at the minute with the pledge 10k going well and all these new players being announced for 2011.

So it's important that we give 110% tomorrow in what will be Steve Menzies last ever game in a the famous Red, Amber and Black.

Bradford are the only team to beat Wigan in an away Super League game this year, having won 22-20 at Odsal way back in March, when Glenn Hall crashed over the black dot with a 78th minute try.

That was an amazing night to see the popular side errupt like we had just won the Grand Final, and even more amazing in that Wigan somehow threw away a 20-0 lead.

So we travel to the DW Stadium tomorrow looking to record a historic double over the Wigan Warriors.

It'll be tough as the statistics show that out of the twenty visits to Wigan since 1996, we have won only four and drawn one (12-12 in 2000).

But we'll all travel in good faith and aim to finish the 2010 on a even higher note than the one we last sang at Odsal a week ago after beating Wakefield by 38 points to 28.

I'll call a Wigan 38-18 Bradford game with 16,000 there to see Wigan lift the League leaders shield.

COME ON YOU BULLS!!!!!!!!!

Wigan need to build momentum going into this play offs especially at home where our form has been scratchy.

Wigan might score a lot, I mean it's not as though we have a great reputation for a mean defence. It's a nothing match for us, as speccies, though I'm sure the pros on the field will want to 'show up' on the night and, of course, we have no real pressure, so hopefully, even if we can't match the Wigan score, we can play well and put a few on them as well, and then we can go home with a smile. biggrin.gif

I expect the usual suspects to have a pop at the number of fans we take. Understandably valid in years gone by, and I've always tried to go to Wigan, but this is a nothing match as mentioned so expect even fewer Bulls speccies.

And then let rip with whinging.

Wigan have been using the 22-20 game as a motivational tool in the lead up to this match ohmy.gif

See you all in the Billy Boston stand.

Bulls by 6
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

The teams line up as follows:

Wigan: S Tomkins, Goulding, Marsh, Carmont, Richards, Deacon, Leuluai, Fielden, Riddell, Coley, Farrell, J Tomkins, O'Loughin.

Bradford: Platt, Sheriffe, Sykes, Menzies, Finigan, Kearney, L'Estrange, Scruton, Godwin, Lynch, Worrincy, Whitehead and Langley

Crowd building well here and Wigan want a big win and Richards needs just 14 points from tonights game to smash the Super League points in a season record, held by Andy Farrell.

Kick-Off in 30:00 minutes.

The 5 live extra website says uninterupted coverage starts at 19:55, with the tennis from the USA starting at 20:00, but that could vary.
So no rugby then.

We are underway as Wigan kick off and Bradford will have first use of the football.

It's an absolutely electric atmosphere tonight with some 15,000 in the three stands.
