It's going to be a classic I can feel it. Brough drop goal in the dying minutes of the game to win it for the giants.

Ah gods I feel nervous

Too many years of being a fartowner tell me we will blow it

I don't care what anybody else thinks, nothing beats a Challenge Cup match, had butterflies for the last hour or two - a brilliant cup, let's hope for a brilliant game!

I might be wrong here but surely Ray French is overegging the fact that Wire have a good deal of players in their 30s. Things have moved on from 20 years ago even though someone like Steve Menzies still stands out. There aren't too many players I'd rather have on the field in a tight situation in the last 10 minutes than Lee Briers whatever the conditions.

Lovely piece of skill. Very good start to the game, Wire started better, but the defence from both teams shows they are up for it!

And Waterhouse scores the second try to put Wire 10-0 up. Poor defence from the Giants.

What do forum members think of Chappers?

I like him, I like the casual presentation style of the BBC rather than the suit and tie approach from Sky.

Great start, well up for this!

 

Clearly no obstruction, Waterhouse actually steps back, Higham used the man well, but that's not an infringement, dunno why Davies wants to see that again.

 

16 nil.

Totally dominant performance so far by Wire, too fast and clever for Hudds.

Warrington are miles to fast for the giants at the moment

Few decisions that could be classed as 50/50's going our way. Replays showing they are correct decisions, but on another day they could easily have gone to the Giants.

 

Deserving our luck though tbh.

Whilst that may have been a steal, if the Hudds player had have tried to keep hold instead of letting go of the ball to hold his hands out appealing then they would probably still have had the ball. Own worst enemies at the moment.

 

Riley in, VR decision

It's a cake walk. Wire are a class apart. The team to fear in the draw later.

We need to copy the NRL rules where any hand on th ball by a tackler in a multi player tackle is penalised

The Giants are v poor but Wire have made them so. Shame it's not a close game, but after the cricket and Froome it's probably good for the heart.

That's not the rule. That is only after the tackle is complete.

 

Pretty much every tackle in the NRL has hands on the ball.
