Saints did exactly what they earned the right to do, choose. They chose who they wanted.
Yes they did, but in making a choice they are not exempt from criticism. If the idea was to always pick the lowest ranked club - what it the point? Saints had the chance to create a moment of history in the game and passed it up.
Fearing the wrath of Hanners, etc. here but are Wigan fans lashing out because they've got Leeds, who have found a way to win when it mattered. Now, for clarification, I want Wigan to beat Leeds, and subsequently win at Old Trafford. But this sissy Saints business seems desperate.
In playing terms as a Wigan fan there is no real preference on who we played at the next stage. Both are very good sides that will be difficult to beat, both have key injuries and both have been beaten by us away from home this season.
My disappointment is entirely at the loss of an significant occasion for the game which the last competitive fixture at KR being a derby would undoubtedly have been, as opposed to the repetition of a Leeds / Wigan fixture for the fifth occasion this year, including twice in the playoffs, and a forgettable Saints v Huddersfield fixture.
