 I have been really surprised by Wigan this year, they have quietly gone about their business - maybe because Sky seem obsessed by Leeds this year rather than the League Leaders, but Wigan do have some tough games left.
 
They have an away game at Warrington, a Saints derby, a battle with Huddersfield and Leeds as well as a trip to Catalan.
 
In fact they play all of the current top 8 before the season is over.


Agree Dave.... saints and Catalans last two games for us away , makes me feel as we need to concentrate on second spot
If we beat Wigan I then think how many times can we beat them before they get one over us and I worry about it being a big one. ( dare I say it ..... Semi final or final in the cup or the GF )

Wires have been steady , recently on fire, so maybe, just maybe , we've geared our season up for the last 17 or so games

Players returning back to fitness will only increase the intensity levels, they've won trophies and know what's needed in the big games.


It's been a great few years being a wire fan, lets hope it continues.

I think we're at a stage where many teams can travel in hope. Most will end up empty handed, but I reckon the key is to enjoy the journey.
The timing of Monday's game is unfortunate in a way, as Wigan could rationally target the quarter/semi final period as being the time we need everyone fully fit and firing, and that we have enough daylight to be ultra cautious next week.
If this was a Cup semi or final or closer to them, we'd really have a game to savour.

Looks like S Wane isn't risking any player who's had a knock and is fielding another young squad.
From what has been said Wigan have only three fit props and no O'Loughlin.
Maybe the squad -
S Tomkins,
Charnley, Goulding, Gelling, Richards,
Powell, Williams,
Lauaki, L Tomkins, Mossop,
Hansen, Farrell,
Burke.
Bench - Crosby, Greenwood, Hughes, Tuson.

The thing is that Wigan play Castleford at home on Friday and it wouldn't surprise me if a number of players return from injury for that one.
As has been said the weekend 2 weeks ago was crucial for Wigan putting them 5 league points ahead of Huddersfield and 7 in front of Warrington.
After the Warrington game the two difficult away games are at St Helens and Catalans, the two awkward ones at home are Leeds and Hudderfield. All winnable.

If that's your team, Warrington by a big margin

If Wigan win, the LLS is theirs.

If they lose, it's game on.

Is Ant still trying to gatecrash this LLS party? Huddersfield are getting nowhere near, sorry mate.


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.

No probably not. But we won it before and the joy was short-lived.

Wire by 24

14/1 available for that. Not much room for error at 21-25 winning margin though.

 

I shall be staying well clear of a gamble, it's too tough to call.

By it's do you mean that Wire's winning margin is too tough to call? 20 points is about par for the course at the HJ. When Wire get more than 3 scores ahead against us, their intensity sometimes dips - plus our boys tend not to throw in  the towel completely.
