  1. After Huddersfield's showing against HKR you do wonder what kind of a response this game will bring. Wigan were fortunate with their win v Wakefield and will be looking to improve as will the Giants. Wigan at home should win by around 16 points.
  2. Did anyone think they would do well with McNamara as coach? Their overall performance and prosperity depends on how quickly they can bring in a quality experienced coach with an NRL proven track record. They will not improve until they replace the current coach with a quality man who can change their tactics and bring a better typeopf recruit into the club.
  3. How much trouble are Catalans in?

    Having a decent coach would help too. Since McNamara took over they've only won two games, both against Leigh. Unless they can win a game soon then McNamara will get sacked.
  4. Eddie Hemmings

    Rod Studd the best option with Wells as summeriser. Carney to Anchor with Clark to assist. When he retires bring Michael Shenton in as summeriser, he's excellent
  5. Hardaker could return to Tigers after ban

    He's 26 and it could well be a two year ban. If he stays out of trouble for those two years then he will probably be back in SL. He has to stay out of trouble though!
  6. Sargison back to SL

    If Gelling goes then Sarge will replace him.
  7. Feel sorry for the Catalans but they are the masters of their own misfortune. Appointing McNamara was always going to end in tears. They will have their work cut out at Leigh.
  8. Seems that, OF, my predictions came through. How Wigan react after that shambles last week will be interesting. Wakey will be full of it following their stadium news.
  9. Seeing as Saints are now in form they will probably win at Salford. The Cas 19 has been announced and they are missing half a team. Hull FC to win that one. If both those predictions come true then Wakefield v Wigan will be a dead rubber.
  10. Are Wigan a club in decline?

    In decline? The Challenge Cup next Saturday, then today the U19s won their semi to play in the 9th GF in 10 years. Decline I don't think so but improvements in standard of play must be made. Injuries have made this season very difficult but appearing in the C Cup final is a real bonus.
  11. Neither considered themselves first team players at the start of the season. Just look at their thirty something shirt numbers. Manfredi is rumoured to be a couple of weeks away from return.
  12. Interesting to see how Wigan go after that very hot 80 mins in Perpignan. Winder used his subs well but it has to have taken a lot out of the squad. Good to see Currie back. Hope Manfredi is not to far away from a return.
  13. Wigan's defence looked much better v Widnes than for a long time. Many senior players now returning has made that difference but the attack is still some way off. Get that right and they will take some stopping. Tautai back this week will make a difference. FPN & Sutton starting props with Tautai and Clubb off the bench will mean a much bigger Wigan pack than for a long time. Also suggested Joel Tomkins will return next week for the Wire game. Manfredi only a week or so away from returning. Wigan by 16.
  14. Alex Gerrard up for grabs?

    Thought Wigan are supposed to be interested in him.
  15. Certainly a must win game for Wigan which I do think they will get the 2 points. No Rangi Chaser so that will help Wigan's cause.
