Quite right - if very old fashioned - and certainly a Super League tactic rather than Championship 1 it would seem...

 

I think the score was 16-4 at the time? a 14 point lead could have killed off any fightback before it even started.

 

Points make prizes..

 

Another piece of clear common sense.

'- if very old fashioned - and certainly a Super League tactic rather than Championship 1 it would seem...' Super League (and Aussie influence) has done more harm than good in our 'old fashioned' British game.

At 16-4 Hornets needed 2 scores to catch us but the penalty 'gift' in front of the posts would have made it 3 instead.

Why did we not go for goal when we had that penalty bang in front of the posts?

We "ran the ball", it came to nowt, and soon after, 'Ornits were touching down at the other end.

With a kicker of Morty's calibre, we should be shooting on sight when given the chance.

Spelly.

 

Totally agree. A place kick bang in front of the posts is a 99% certain two pointer with the added bonus of getting the ball back.

It's a 'bird in the hand' situation surely.

I heard he's 19 but will turn 20 soon.

 

 He's just turned 20 (last Monday).

According to the Wigan website his D.o.B. is 13 July 1995.

Nice one Ian. I have always much preferred the traditional/historic name of a club's ground. 'Cougar Park' sounds far too much like something from Aussie RL or American football. We're British rugby league, let's be proud of our own unique culture, warts and all.
