Wigan were poorly served by their halfbacks and didn't do anywhere near enough to bring Charnley into the game for a one-on-one attack..


We got some confidence in our ability to defend and played like we should have all season. We coped with a blustery wind better than they did.


Fair play to the ref, he was incompetent for both teams.


One interesting point; Lee Gaskell was calling the plays at least as often as Luke Gale.

Just got back from holiday and thought my phone was broken when I checked the result. Should have known one of our best performances of the year would happen when I was away - usually does! No need to thank me everyone.

Make no mistake, Wigan were awful, as pants as I've ever seen them. But Bradford played like it was a Cup final or a play off game. The lads were pretty solid but it took me until the 78th minute to allow myself to think we were going to win, however terrible Wigan were I kept thinking they had enough to at least sneak a wholly undeserved victory. It's certainly up there with the few victories as highlight of the season, and while Charnley bombed a chance to score in the corner there were 3 near as dammit clear cut chances for Bradford to score too - including what is without doubt the tackle of the season by Charnley on Gaskell, I hope that makes a highlight vid somewhere. I didn't get that same buzz today I did when we fluked a win against Wire but it was refreshing to see a genuinely hardworking and true character building win. The cynic in me says a lot of players must have inked new SL deals elsewhere and were putting on a show *cough* Manase Manuokafoa...

If you use "should of", "would of" or "could of", you are a moron.

Oh and Hicks did his best to get Wigan back in the game! :angry:


(No report is complete without a dig at the ref)

Great win for the Bulls, despite my pessimism. Just shows you can never tell and RL is full of surprises. Attitude spot on from the Bulls but I wouldfn't want to be facing Waney if I were a Wigan player....I guess we'll be repainting the away changing room.
