I enjoyed my day out and it was a better contest than last year. Bit of a shock when the referee blew for a break after 20 minutes - I don't think anyone had mentioned that in advance. Skolars had their normal big forwards, some rather lacking in mobility, but for League 1 level they made some quality off-loads and a couple of line breaks. Apart from the two tries they also had two other shouts chalked off in the fourth quarter where the referee called "held up". For the first one the ball was put down after the referee blew and probably after the defence had slackened off. The other one the officials just didn't seem to realise that the ball was grounded.
Agree with comments that the programme was poor as far as the line-ups go. It listed Skolars in alphabetical order, and the Wigan first team by squad number, so provided no useful information at all. However, it is undoubtedly the only rugby league match programme in history to include a three page article on "Eight things to know about short and leverage ETPs [Exchange Traded Products]".
Didn't see Barwick but Andy Gregory was there.
