Thought Betts should have learned from Gentle and just said we'd have lost to a school boy's team last night. ;)

To be fair to Wigan though, they were pretty good.

You only need to look at the stats to realise how good Wigan were. 100% tackle success in the first half IIRC. Some of the plays were brilliant.
Widnes' stats weren't too bad, but their defensive strategy was just awful which Wigan took apart with ease to make break after break.

Hull's stats on the other hand were appalling in the game against Widnes. We couldn't even hold the ball.

Denis Betts must find out what the word schtum means. It was his comments that fired Wigan up.

One good thing for Wigan is that 12 out of the 17 came through the clubs academy.
At the press conf Denis Betts seemed at a loss for answers after the game as his team were during it.
Feel sorry for the Widnes fans with Wire next then Hudds.

Yeah, but Widnes could've had 13 if Hock and Brown were playing...

Wigan could have had 13 if Hock hadn't decided to flounce from the club. ;)
