  1. Sargison back to SL

    If Gelling goes then Sarge will replace him.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Alex Gerrard up for grabs?

    Thought Wigan are supposed to be interested in him.
  10. 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.
  11. Excellent News for the International Game. Time then to ditch the Magic (Tragic) Weekend of the extra and unwanted 23rd Fixture. Bennett will then have all players available to him.
  12. Wigan always target the Good Friday game and the rest of Easter fixtures too. That doesn't mean they took it easy in their previous game, because they didn't.
  13. Williams is finding it difficult with those usually around him missing. Cas the better team but no great shakes. Should Wigan get back to form with their left side of Farrell, Gildart and Burgess all playing well then the tries will come and so will the wins. Early this season those three were unstoppable. No reason they can't find that form again,
  14. Scrum/Skull Cap XIII

    Paul Prescott
  15. It's pretty much agreed here that Ferres will face disciplinary action. Interesting to see if Ablett and others will.
