I am genuinely shocked how poor Wigan have been in ALL departments.

Looked like obstruction in live play confirmed in replay.

2 poor teams perhaps not. Rovers despite all the injuries and inconsistent suspensions have held Leeds to 6-6 at h/t, drawn away at Huddersfield, matched Cas for 50 mins, and held Saints 12 - 12 after 40, and are now up at halftime away at Wigan.

Wigan have matched the NRLs best for most of the playing minutes and didn't disgrace us then have lost out in the last minute to the top team....Cas.

Not the best teams currently but not the worst. Look at who they have played not the end results!

Live in hope for the Rovers in the next 40 mins.

Mid table would be a successful season, by all accounts.

Hull KR struggling with injuries and suspensions? Apart from Ade Gardner on the wing don't they have their strongest 1 - 15 out based on squad numbers?

Wigan were never in the game against the Roosters, even though they played poorly by their standards.

Both defences are bare thin and full of misreads. Both have average packs and half backs who can kick and run plays but apart from that they don't have much about them. Wigan will finish higher due to having better backs and a better coach.

Both sides will be no where near the top come the end of the season.

Very harsh that. Correct call by the letter of the law but it had zero impact on the try.

No option but to disallow it under the current interpretation but that's the problem. The current interpretation is far too dogmatic.

Great try for Wigan...when they get a quick ptb, Logan tomkins can get them moving at pace

The execution rate of both sides in this game has been shocking.

3 years of Leneghan selling wigan's best players and trying to replace them with kids and cheap buys looks like its catching up on them.

Rovers improving week on week.

Season starts with Bradford and Wakey at home.

Not me, couldn't believe his eulogy of Matty Smith near the end, claiming his open kicking game in the second half won the game.
