FFS! The global economic crash was not of any political parties doing, there is an argument that tighter regulation could have been implemented. That said, I don't see how the FSA, or any other body could stop in effect an insurance underwritten payment default scam.

The only good to come of this, currently, is the end of 100+% mortgages. Which, frankly, was completely ridiculous.

Network Rail, a primarily tax payer funded organisation seems to be doing a decent, not great, service.

Operators, by and large heavily criticised, providing a poor to decent service, with ever increasing charges.

Seems the tax payer is getting the raw end of the deal.

My own experiences; West Coast main line with Virgin has been pretty good, expensive, but pretty good. Liverpool to Manchester; chronic lack of carriage provision, certainly pre-8am, to the point of being dangerous. Pretty blood dear too, nine quid for a twenty five minutes journey.

A game won and lost in the forwards. First time in the past three/four games that Warrington have been more dominant in the forwards.

For all the absentees, the biggest miss was O'loughlin. He really is the glue that holds Wigan together.

Ridyard is the guy who makes Leigh tick but in conjunction with Beswick. Brierley has lots of potential and showed great touch yesterday with the kick for the first try and bags of pace for his first try. If he develops some real game management, he may well develop into a better player than Ridyard.


I am always wary of halfbacks who are pacy. See Myler, Mellor and Burrows for reference. The only one who truly made the transition was Long.

Enjoyed this game & think Leigh did them selves proud against SL big guns, The highlight for me was Ryan Brierley he is a very classy half and from what I see is as good as if not better than most in the SL, I know it won't happen but I don't think he'd let anyone down if he where selected in the England squad at the end of the year.


I am bemused by the plaudits given to Brierley. For me, Ridyard is the guy who makes Leigh tick. Brierley relies on pace to play/make gaps for himself, not for those around him.
