#3128030 23 May: Catalans Dragons v Wigan Warriors KO 6pm (TV)

Posted by Old Frightful on 23 May 2015 - 08:55 PM

always bite...you well know they beat Hull 46-10 then Rovers and Cas around the start of the season....3 big scalps! 

They beat Hull 46-10 before the start of the season in a meaningless friendly.

 

They then beat Cas away by 2 points followed by a rather more convincing home win against your lot the week after in their first two league fixtures of the season..

 

Hull FC have yet to play Wakey in a league fixture this year.

 

Nice attempted sleight of computer keyboard though.

If it's on the Rovers side could it be Fred Lindop?

I wanted to get a congratulations card for Mr Radford so it could get into the first post in the morning.

 

 

Heh-heh-heh.  :devil:

 

I suppose you both think you're funny.

 

Think I'll suggest Steve Reed puts you both on ignore.

 

That'll learn ya.

I think he meant Featherstone Rovers.

Thought I would pop out, as the second half was always going to be a procession. Did I miss anything?

So you left at half time mate?

 

My word, even given that you're a Wigan fan, that was early.

Eorl Crabtree's voice sounds a bit too high pitched for me, any chance we can have some comments from Tanya Arnold to even it up a bit?

Just out of interest, if a player kicks the ball out on the full past the dead ball line, how is play restarted?

Ask James Child.....or maybe a referee.

Great effort from Rervers and an exciting game. Not sure if the result would have been the same had they played at the DW, I think playing at the LSV gave our East Hull friends that mental edge as they must have thought this was their chance with home advantage partly nullified. They really looked like they were scrapping for each other and this put a lot of pressure on the Pies, Chris Chester must have done a good job preparing them but must also wonder about the game the other week.

 

Burgess and Sarginson on their day can look like world beaters but when it's not their day they sometimes look a lot worse than ordinary. What on earth was the latter doing trying an offload under pressure 30m from his own line when his team are winning with 8 mins left on the clock? (That's how I remember it although there was only 2 hours of my b'day left at that point!)

 

An enjoyable moment for me was when Joel Tomkins looked like he was going to have a pop at Cockayne and seemingly expected the smaller bloke to back down but the Rervers player looked like he was up for a bit of it. I'm not a great fan of the nastiness in either player's games but that made me smile.

 

At the risk of falling foul of the burning torch* lot, I too found a certain irony in the McLlorum/Farrell head clash incident. I never want any players to suffer bad injuries like the one that occurred to Farrell but I can understand why one or two posters commented like they did when it happened. I'm also confident in saying everybody obviously hopes that Farrell recovers quickly and has no lasting after effects from what was a nasty knock.

 

The red and white lot that travelled over to cheer their heroes on must have enjoyed the moments after the hooter, not often do you see players mingling with the speccies in the fashion that we saw last night. Even as a black and white I thought that was a nice touch ( :bad: ).

 

Overall, I thought it was a good cup game and I'm mystified as to why the crowds don't respond to them. Even with the result of a fortnight ago I would have expected more than was in attendance, and that's RL fans in general, not just Wigan btw.

 

(* Funny how this phrase seems to appear only in certain threads... :ph34r: )

Oh dear, on the eve of a massive game for his current club against his former club too.

You take far too much interest for my liking.
