Hehe, the old sod didn't expect a win and he's unsure of their next win...... I'm hoping they win next Monday though :P

I wasn't at the game as I'm touring with my band, are you talking about Wakey/Widnes fans or both?

The trouble was briefly visible on screen, how extensive was it and what was the cause in your opinion?

I was in the north stand and from what I could see there was a group of around 10-15 people wearing Widnes shirts (don't really want to call them Widnes fans) who had obviously had a few drinks before the game had started and didn't stop all game long. Something started with someone in a plane white shirt (I presume a wakey fan, but don't know for sure).

 

Whatever happened he went to the loudest of those in the Widnes shirts and shook there hands, all seemed fine but thn some from behind started through liquid (booze I presume) at him and other Wakey fans as it was next to the toilets.

 

They then start out shouting/chanting (I couldn't understand it) but it seem to upset a few wakey fans who then moved out of the area. unfortunately and couple (literally 2-3) idiotic Wakey fans move into the area and thy started chanting back. More stuff thrown from those in Widnes shirts and then the 2-3 idiotic people in wakey shirts and a few of those in Widnes shirts moved next to each other and a few punches were thrown.

 

The 2 in Wakey shirts who threw punches then walked off and seemingly out of the ground ( they had been stood below the welcome to belle vue council sign- 2 blokes 1 women)whilst security ran into the now almost empty area and tried to stop those in Widnes shirts from heading towards wakey fans. The stewards then had punches thrown at them and around 8-12 from Widnes where separated whilst the rest of their fans got back to enjoying their small comeback.

 

As ever it came down to a small minority from both sides who had too much  to drink and wanted to act the hardman. Very sad and I hope Wakefield and Widnes can do something about it.

 

There was a sky cameraman in front of it and started to film it so it should be on camera and around 5 minutes before it kicked off whilst those in Widnes shirts where just ben prats the police helicopter circled th ground and slowed down facing them so I presume they were been filmed.

 

The idiots were kept in after the match but the tallest one in the Widnes away shirt obviously got out and walked round to the north stand exit and barged into wakey fans whilst he continued his hardman act- I didn't hear or see anybody from wakey respond so I hope it all finished by then.

No need really......regarding both parties

 

Absolutely, I hope all of those involved get life time bans from every rugby league ground at least

Around 7500 in the ground and just a few morons provide the talking point. It's sad really, it was a scrappy but competitive game in tough conditions. Trinity did well to win having lost those best player in Collis, their stand off Sykes, having a bench loaded with forwards and of course having Peter Fox in the team.

Was the Widnes lot to blame. Targeted 3 wakey fans with songs about inbreeding. The white t-shirt wakey fan went and shook hands a few times but the Widnes fans kept goading and throwing drinks. Stewards were slow to react. As a neutral I am sure the blame was all with the Widnes lot. Sad
