Sounds like looking for excuses from Mr Harrison. Yes, Town had 4 young Wigan players playing but to say they were the best players on the field is a bit disingenuous to the local lads who outshone everyone else. Brett Phillips and Marc Shackley were head and shoulders above anyone else and if he couldn't see that then he is not the coach he thinks he is. Carl Forber was also better than most others, plus Graham Mattinson. The Wigan boys were steady and solid doing nothing special except Manfredi's try down the wing, that was special. Fax' pack didn't exactly run over Town's pack containing only 1 recognised prop forward and we played the full game with only 16 players as one sub wasn't used.

I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.
