To honest I think Wigan need to find a reliable goal kicker from somewhere. It's gonna be a problem all season long if they don't.

He was excellent last night. I actually feared for him a little in the first half where he seemed to take a battering in the tackles but he soldiered on and I thought he was Wires best player in the second half. He defended superbly and was always a willing runner in attack. Full credit to the guy.

Strange thread... most threads concerning Wigan players these days seem to be of the 'Burn the witch' type  :tongue: 


Big fan of Bateman. I think he is a great rugby league player. Tireless in both attack and defence and he has a tremendous attitude. He's  been Wigan's best player in both games so far this season.

Had a long post written in response to the quote above but sadly went under a bridge (I'm on a train) and it got lost.

Basically whilst I try to stay positive regards our great sport I do find the VR an annoyance and have done ever since they were introduced.
I am yet to be convinced it's a positive especially in a such a fast paced sport where we waste so much time frame by frame trying to find a way to disallow a try.
The ball might be in play longer than most sports but I bet we lose a hell of a lot of time on VR decisions.
I know it's early doors but I applaud the decision makings of the refs in the televised games so far who IMO have rendered the VR redundant.

I liked the fact Silverwood didnt bother with the vr a couple of times where others would have.

The vr is bugging me. The unneccessary following of the nrl is slowing things down so much. From when the nall goes down it takes an age now as the ref and touchy have to come up with a decision in advance. Everything is so slow and labouref. Get a bleedin move on!!!
