Stop being sensible, affect false outrage - it's much more fun!!

I'm saving that for the Tomkins thread, by the way he were never any good. :D

Wellsy, we won the Cup. It's a cup competition, in which we played 4 SL teams. We targeted it and we won it. If you can find a side that has beaten all 3 of those teams (and HKR away) as easily this year let me know.

Hull stuffed Widnes at home, London at home and beat KR away.

We've beaten ourselves about 10 times this year as well ;)

Has there ever been an easier run to the cup than playing 4th in KPC, 8th in SL, 11th in SL, 14th in SL and 7th in SL?

Wellsy - not sure why you care, or the point you are making, but you can't show me like for like performances can you? If you are trying to suggest that you support a hopeless team the beating of which carries no merit then your bitterness seeems to be of a particularly self excoriating variety.

Very poor opposition though.

 

Seems Hull are odds on to win this with the bookies. So much so that you can get 3/1 on a Wigan winning margin of 1-12 and 6/1 on a winning margin of anything greater than that.

I'm sure Hull can find someway to extract a defeat from what looks a likely victory though.

This fishing lark gets easier ;)

A cup win's a cup win. Somebody has to beat the big boys and someone has to beat the boys that beat the big boys. The biggest boy wins the cup! Well done.

And I'm allowed to be bitter! ;)

I was in the bookies earlier Hull 1/2. Not often the bookies are wrong but I hope they are tonight.

When Wigan played Widnes in the Cup wasn't it the first time for about 8 years Wigan had drawn a SL club at home?
Pretty sure I heard that somewhere.

You played Saints at home in the quarters IIRC?

More Hull dropped passes leads to Burgess scoring in the corner.

 

Them bookies must be rueing their odds offered  earlier.

 

22-12.

Another Wigan try chalked off by the officials.

 

A let off for Hull and probably Peter Gentle.
