Isn't that exactly the same score as Wigan v HKR last year?

84-6 Full Time...


The same as last Easter Monday's score against Hull KR

So in two games the figures are. ....
For: 12
Against: 130

Not bad. :wacko:

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

Sad to see a proud club like Bradford take a beating like that. Brings back horrible memories of 05/06 for a Wigan fan.

Looking on the brighter side, some excellent performances from Wigan's squad members given a chance. There sure is some depth in the creative roles when the likes of Hampshire, Williams and Powell can come in and perform like that. Eight missing from Wigan's first choice 17, but the team didn't suffer at all.

Still possible isn't it?

Or are you not rating our chances at Swinton?

Surely you don't think Bradford will lose their tie?

If you think Bradford will win against Catalan then get some money on. You'll get some seriously good odds.

We could have had the following as an alternative starting 13 -
Bowen - Charnely - Hughes - Thornley - Burgess - Powell - Smith
Taylor - Tomkins - Crosby - Eddie P - Burke/Clubb - Flower
Really good strength in depth.
Hampshire is the business.
Incidentally, it's odd looking at the Wire squad how few organisers they have of the same calibre as Powell, Williams or Hampshire (let alone Bowen, Green and Smith). The more I look at that Wire squad, the odder it seems. World class talents but so unbalanced.

Actually, for some reason I still had the last tie in my head; Oldham?

Yeah, I take your point.

I wouldn't have minded getting Bradford at Lawkholme, it could have been interesting to say the least.

It wouldn't. It would have been a comprehensive Bulls win.

I think you're about right if we'd played them in our first round - not so sure if we'd been playing them at this coming weekend! Confidence is totally shot. Luckily for us we'll never know. But I'm sure Keighley fans will be looking forward to the glory of beating the worst Bradford side in living memory next year - plenty of others seemingly are!

Wigan will make their result against Hull KR on last year's Easter Monday look like a close game compared to this.

Near enough.

Forget what Browny said - what is THIS alluding to...?

My source from the past few years is the grandfather of a former Bradford player, who attends his grandson's matches now instead of Bradford, he would be very insightful about who was or wasn't onside with Cummins, and pretty much the majority have moved on. Of course things like that probably happen at every club at things can change over time. But it was interesting to hear.

I expect Wigan to win, but not by a walkover. This season we have a habit of just doing enough, grinding the opposition down and easing away in the last 20. Aside from Friday, we have also been starting very slow.


Ha. Don't you look foolish now?

Thought they'd break a record when I saw it at 78-0 with nearly 20 minutes to go. Must have eased off.

Had they not conceded that late try, it'd have broken it. In fact there's been a few games in SL that have been one score out.

Err, I think you find we earned that try.

 

How disrespectful.
