With all due respect, the last game at KR is now lacking the prestige that it deserved. Given that Wigan won in our last meeting at the ground, you would have thought that they may have wanted to right the wrong and close the old ground in style. Obviously not.


Showing no respect at all, you mean smile.gif

The last game at Knowsley road is likely to be a sell out wether your team are there or not. Your teams final match at Knowsley Road ended in a victory and the history books will reflect this ad infinitum. We have no wrong to right and we close the "old ground" with dignity. So much more than if your team were present at the final match.

Why because you expect to win, whereas if Wigan were there you would lose? wink.gif

Saints did exactly what they earned the right to do, choose. They chose who they wanted.

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.

Nothing to do with that mate.

If the team with the choice is always going to pick the lowest ranked team, then you may as well scrap the Club call now.

It is doing no-one any good, and in many ways it is an embarrassment to a great game.

Get rid of it.

1)Or maybe they are hoping that we can prevent their bogey team from making the final?

2) At the end of the day as an RL fan, not just a Wigan fan, I'm disappointed, I thought Saints were the type of club that wouldn't lie down on a Wigan defeat in the final derby at their ground and would want to set the record straight. Maybe the risk of a final game defeat was too much?!?

3) Personally wouldn't fancy choosing Huddersfield on current form - last night proved that the win at the DW a few weeks ago was no fluke.


1) Yes you can right your wrong.

2) We at risk of a greater humiliation then ever (in your eyes) surely.

3) Personally I don't agree with club call, I think the game should follow due process and adopt the original fixture format for the play-offs and which team would have had the honour had that process been followed ? Yes, Huddersfield.



1895
Prior to the formation of the Northern Rugby Football Union in 1895 (this later took the name of the Rugby Football League in the early 1920's) the Huddersfield Club had an active and honourable life of around thirty years as part of the English Rugby Union. It was obvious that a split was going to happen and by August the final plans were being made. On Thursday 29th August the meeting at the George Hotel, Huddersfield was held and Rugby League was born.


Qualifying semi for the 2010 Grand Final at Old Trafford, should prove to be a historic event really, one way or another. smile.gif

But if things had 'gone to plan' and it was the top 4, it'd be trickier to pin who Saints would choose. If it had gone even more to plan and Wigan were to choose from Warrington and Leeds, that would be harder still.

I'd wait for further Club Calls to see if lowest ranked is picked, then look at scrapping it.

On Odsal Top baht 'at.

It didn't "go to plan" and its a crappy gimmicky idea so lets get rid of it.
