It seems odd to have;

a stand-off on the wing,

a winger in the centre,

a centre in the second row, and

a second row at stand-off.

I know Meli has done well at left centre and Soliola is getting back into the game, but something needs to change. It looks like St Helens are sometimes playing to a more conventional pattern, however this is not enough.

I hope this is not a sign of things to come from Potter...

In Potter we trust. :D

It seems the Man of Steel's gone rusty. Hopefully it's Deacon's time to shine and slot over the winning touchline conversion! :D

Never mind Potter, St Helens need Gandalf, Merlin, Roy Wood and the fella from Oz to sort them out.

First half seemed to go quick, more one sided than I would have liked for entertainment value, hopefully Saints will come out for the second raring to go and give us a game. All a bit sterile so far IMO, need some fire from somewhere

Dumb truck. Deacon is one of the best place kickers in the competition. Who cares if Riddell does an amusing salute, I'd rather have the 2 points than a laugh.

Meli up to his usual Grand Final standards.

Nice dive from Precious too. :dry:

He was smacked round the mouth, fair enough for him to swan it up.

Hallelujah, yay, let's justify a 33% completion rate if poor kicking.

We haven't had an Angel of the North impression from Wellens yet.

I'm sure there has been one, just not caught on camera.

Ahh, a Saints forward pass.

Even a Leulaui special with the big hit.

Ticking all the boxes so far.

Good God!! How poor was that game? Awful from Saints from beginning to end, says it all when their best ball-player on the night was Graham! Matty Smith will probably be farmed back out to a championship team after that performance. Wigan weren't great either but they didn't have to be to win that one!

Well done Wigan.

I'm gutted that yet again Saints have come to a final not ready to start. It's as though anything off the cuff has been coached out of the side.

I know there has been alot of talk that Saints where without our half back combination. But those 16 points that Wigan ran in at the start had nothing to do with missing half backs purely Wigan where at a final and knew it. Saints just looked like they where trotting out for yet another game.

The only inventive stuff we did was once the game was already gone. It did not look like the coach had any special plays or combinations lined up.

For Wigan every player went out there not expecting to win but with the understanding that it's a final and you have to play the whole game with intensity if you want to win. Saints for 20 minutes where just trotting around with no intensity in the tackles.

Wigan have been consistently the best all year and are truely worthy champions.

Gutted.

Again.

Clearly, every single Saints fan needs to hope and pray that Potter transforms the Bulls into a team capable of reaching the Grand Final, as that's the only way St Helens will win the League again. :rolleyes::dry:

Based on Chris Flannery's performance again, why are English clubs so obssessed with signing imports ?

And no, Thomas Leuluai was not the best player on the field, Sam Tomkins was by a mile.
