should be a good turnout from Wire fans,£14 for season ticket holders.
Too close to call.

the Warrington lad has been the big under achiever as for as talent goes, the best centre over here as far a potential goes but would be exposed over in aus because of his lack of consistence.

In Topic: Tony Smith: The game is not protecting our players

Pity has hasn't mentioned this previously.
Leulaui's hit was accidental as Smith said.
Perhaps he should have said something similar after last year's Grand Final when the Wigan half back played almost a full game with his face smashed in following an attack by one of Smith's players. Green needed protection and didn't get it.
Pettybourne needed protection from one of Smith's players too but didn't get it.
Maybe instead of talking about "the game" protecting players he should start nearer to home?

I think you are missing the point about what's happening in general with the game. The two incidents are as you called them but the collision with the head of players is a worrying trend with serious concequences

The comments on Sky tonight summed it up perfectly, at last a pundit who see's the real picture (Brian carney).

JohnM, not such a strong assertion.
The last 5 weeks has seen two players sent off for connecting with the head and the players leaving the field and unable to return,
I have also seen three Wire players leave the field unconscious and taken too hospital (one self inflicted, two hit whilst not holding the ball). There is an increase in stoppages for head injuries in my perception of watching live and TV matches (sorry Padge no time to go through sky archives to show numbers).The ball seems to have been picked up with the Sky Backchat team last night and Tony Smith today. Some may pour scorn on my views but it will not go away and will become a big issue sooner rather than later.
