  1. Hill and Graham are two props who can and would run their blood to water for a full 80...... not that that would be wise. I'd like to see Ratchford at FB at some point and maybe pushing Lomax into hooker should Hodgson need a spell.
  2. By way of contrast, swallowed my pride yesterday and tried to watch the England union game, in an unbiased and objective manner......... I lasted 5 minutes before I got soooooooo bored I had to turn the TV off. Todays game, once it settled down, had me on the edge of my seat, it contained everything good about our sport. I suppose my point is, that if we can't grow our game off the back of this series, will we ever?
  3. Whilst Makinson was phenomenal in attack and defence, our left side attack in genereral was fantastic. However, I think that McGilvary was superb in carrying the ball out over on the right edge, he ran like a man twice his size all day. Great result and a great team effort
  4. I likethe look of that team. Ratchford off the bench gives a plethora of options in the backs, Clarke can smash out 80 mins easily and Greenwood provides raw power on the fringes.
  5. Will someone please offer Dennis a mentholyptus
  6. Ahhhhh, maybe Brown watched the Aussie GF and thought he'd give it a go too. That explains it.
  7. Hardly any mention of his effort, yet he was phenomenal tonight.
  8. I missed "Strictly" for this! But seriously, Brown went missing again and Roberts offered nowt. Williams put doubt in our defensive line all night we didnt eirher half back doing any of that. Ratchford, Clark, Lynham, Hughes and Hill can hold their heads high.
  9. How do Wire unlock that Wigan defence? Likewise, Wire will be no pushovers in the defence department either. I think Bateman and Farrells influence will be crucial for Wigan and Warrington will lean heavily on Ratchford and Clarke. I'm predicting Mike Cooper for MoM though, he's the most improved player I can recall over the last 10 - 20 years.
  10. Heart is primrose and blue. Head is cherry and white........unfortunately. Steve Price has galvanised the Wire this season, got them to both major finals and reinstalled a belief in players and fans alike. I hope he utilises Mr Waynes selection as coach of the year (having won nothing yet) as a motivational tool. Here's to a great game, whoever wins.

    What now for Toronto?

    Mmmm, I'm tight but right. I don't think he took charge of the semi against Saints in the manner an England half back should. He drifts in and out of games too much for me. I agree that on occasions he has performed well, but these are nullified by his propensity to switch off. I hope he has a blinder in the GF and goes out on a well deserved high.

    I reckon Brian McDermott or T Smith may get an email in the near future. I don't think K Brown is a good investment though, the lad is made of cheese and goes missing in action too often. They need a calm head and stabilizing influence.
  13. Are London still considered as an expansion team? Well played to them, unlucky TWP.
  14. London are playing a blinder. The TWP are playing with their hearts and not their heads. Good tense, close game. Both need to cut out the mistakes though.
