Tomkins and O'Loughlin named in the 19. If both play that I really can't see past a Wigan win.

Good luck both teams, but I fear Widnes are going to cop a real hiding!

I wish they'd make their mind up with that rule.

 

The reason that pass went behind the Widnes player was because of the Wigan's players hand.

Champagne rugby by Widnes, unfortunately they're losing and not good enough to do it.

Just want to say I'm enjoying the commentary team tonight, really good mix of personnel. Special mention for Barry Mac, he sounds very enthusiastic and knowledgeable at the same time. Something Eddie and stevo can't match. Oh and Charnley is having a stormer both tries well taken, only half chances for most wingers!

An off the ball shoulder charge goes unpunished?

Dave, you can't surely penalise the tackler for making a good tackle and forcing the ball out. It was poor play by handbury, he was too slow and hesitant in making the pass.

We may as well make it a non-contact sport if we start giving pens for that. This is the hardest team sport in the world for a reason, lets not negate the reasons.

With you on that but it's a rule nonetheless and if it exists it should not be ignored.

Widnes are getting stuffed by the ref IMO.

Also themselves.

You'd think any team would have learned to respect possession of the ball against Wigan. Keep turning it over anywhere on the park and they'll crucify you. Very poor Widnes.

That's one superb try, one of the best I've seen this season. Widnes are exciting in attack but too many errors are hurting them.

Jesus Christ this is embarrassing - watch the 4 quarters again and compare them to 5/6 years ago -- no comparison - some awful sides in super league I'm afraid - getting bored of it being in the tv
