I am looking forward to this. Widnes tend to raise their game for these - perhaps they consider this their main derby whereas Wire think of it as 1 of 3. With the semis looming, Widnes need to find form, whereas the longer Wire's winning run goes on the nearer the end draws, I have a sneaking feeling there could be an upset.

Yep, I wouldn't be surprised to see a defeat here. It has surprised me how long our winning streak has gone on for with the amount of rotation within our team, that can only be a good thing.

 

Looking forward to it, seems a while since we were on telly.

If it stays dry Wire should nick it, will be closer than form suggests and Smith is using the last two games and Widnes and Wakey to rotate and rest players in prep for the play offs and this will always increase the odds of us losing.

Not my research, it's taken from another forum but there has never been a split season between Widnes and Warrington - all games have been won by 1 team.

Can only assume tonight's events were due to the heat and on the basis that tomorrow will be hotter - I'm going to the bookies to put a tenner on Gene Ormsby getting sent off for stamping on Joe Mellor nuts.

Mmm. That would make it a pecan encounter.

We've not been on telly for yonks, looking forward to it. Would expect the Smellies to be up for this, they were pretty chirpy before we spanked them at the HJ.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

If my team can put over 50 on Widnes, then I don't hold up much hope for them competing against a well coached Warrington side.There's just the derby factor that might help them.

I'll be astonished.

It was. Really nice gesture to name the stand after her too.

Matty Russell got the demons with him tonight which is helping Widnes' cause somewhat.

Even so, Widnes not going too bad and have just extended their lead.

12-0.

Quite happy to admit I've been wrong up to now, prediction wise.

Widnes over again, shouldn't Atkins have been penalised for a head shot although Widnes lost the ball in scoring, no vid ref though.

Justice perhaps?.

16-0.

Really enjoyed that first half. Looking forward to seeing if Warrington can climb out of the hole they've dug for themselves. Credit to Widnes though, they've really unsettled their opponents.

Setting aside the iffy grounding was that not a text book case of a player being fouled in the act of scoring? Should have been an eight point try IMO.
