Bridge as always seemed to me to be the scapegoat at wire, a bad result and he gets bombed. Be better moving IMO


Yep, some sections of the south stand have bad things to say about bridge, I'm not keen on his attitude, but to be fair, he's got flair and can make things happen...... It'll be nice to see him back playing at his best, gifted lad, just had a lot of injuries and a few issues off the field.

If he gets back to his best, it'll be another centre for England to think about.

Obviously he is injured Dave, so that's why he's not been playing. However, I do have some sympathy for Hullfan's point: Bridge drops out of the team for a bit and you do get a load of Wire fans slagging him off. See PMJ's rubbish about him having a bad attitude in the post preceding this one.

Anyway, today's teams:

Warrington

Brett Hodgson, Chris Riley, Rhys Evans, Ryan Atkins, Rhys Williams, Stefan Ratchford, Richie Myler, Paul Wood, Micky Higham, Chris Hill, Simon Grix, Ben Westwood, Mike Cooper

Subs: Garreth Carvell, Tyrone McCarthy, Ben Currie, James Laithwaite

Hull KR

Greg Eden, Alex Brown, Kris Welham, Liam Salter, David Hodgson, Travis Burns, Michael Dobson, Evarn Tuimavave, Josh Hodgson, Rhys Lovegrove, Dale Ferguson, Cory Paterson, Con Mika


Subs: Keal Carlile, Graeme Horne, George Griffin, Mickey Paea


Three second-rowers on the bench plus Carvell, with Cooper starting LF suggests we're hoping to bulldoze Hull KR's pack.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

From what I've seen, Rovers' forwards try and get on top then try and have a breather which leads to them falling away a bit. If Wire's forwards can get the upper hand early on, this could be as embarrassing for KR as yesterday's game was for Hull FC.

(Expect Rovers to win in fine style now I've made that comment. :rolleyes: )

Eddie Hemmings called Mika 'Big Con' last week.

And people say he doesn't know what he's talking about.

Craig Hall's out for Rovers. That should knock 10-12 points of Warrington's anticipated total too.

FFS, he's good for 10 missed tackles a game. At least Welham's still there.

That's more turnstiles than there are in the new stand.

A few mins into 2nd half and it's 6-12 to Wire.

I want to know why Chris Riley dropped his first two passes in this game but was man of the bloody match last week. :angry:

Rovers pen, 30m out Dobson goal perhaps? Aye, going for it.

Annoying slaphead nails it, 17 m from touch. 14-12 Rervers.
