How on earth was that obstruction? Were they supposed to turn ethereal?

Wigan benefit from dodgy forward pass decision again eh EW?

Results in a try too.

I agree with the penalty, but Saints have been penalised for 2 fair passes now.

Saints to be 12 up 2 minutes before half time, Wigan to pull the deficit back then canter away in 2nd half. Seen this movie too many times.

Lol

Thank goodness Wigan scored there, I think the referee was running out of ideas on how to get them over the line.

A pity to concede right on half time like that.  Been very impressed with Swift so far, he's certainly been the best winger on the pitch.

It was hard to tell who was playing well on the left-hand side for Saints, they seemed to be taking it in turns to walk past Goulding.

:D That first try was particularly soft wasn't it.

 

Not confident about how this is going to pan out though :(

Feeling a bit hard done-by with a few of the referring decisions. That said, silly mistakes are letting Wigan back into the game. They better get their act together in the first 10mins or the second half or Wigan will steam roll us.

It highlighted Charnley's main fault. He doesn't know when to stay on his man or to come in to attempt the tackle inside. Happens a lot...

It's always hard to tell when you're caught up in the emotion of the game but it felt like we were getting hammered with the decisions there.

Surprised more people didn't comment towards the end of the game... :rolleyes:

I watched this game as a true neutral and thought that refereeing decisions had far too much influence on the outcome. It was tight and could have gone either way but individual interpretations had too much of an effect. In particular I thought that he was far too lenient about hands on the ball in the tackle - you only need to watch a couple of NRL games to see how this has readily been removed from the game over there - and Scarsbrook is a consistent offender in this regard. Had the ref clamped down on this scourge then it would have been Saints on the team warning rather than Wigan, and the outcome might have been quite different.

 

Congratulations to Saints for toughing it out though, their defence was excellent.

Thought Child was pi$$ poor for both teams, lost control and completely bottled it in not sending Taylor off.

 

At the start of the season players wree being sent off for a late shoulder charge, particularly when it resulted in a serious injury, but that seems to have been forgotten now

Saints have probably been the worst team for shoulder charges this year, how many have they had sent off?

What happened to a player being given 10 minutes in the bin for throwing the ball away? That aside, edge of the seat stuff and what a superb drop-goal.

Rightly so concerning the Saints players, but two wrongs don't make it right. Likewise, a Wigan player should have been given 10 minutes in the bin for throwing the ball away. I have seen three Saints players binned for this offence. As for the match, it was edge of the seat stuff even thought there were many errors.... and what about that superb drop-goal? 

 

It all makes for an exciting finish.

Did I see that bloke from Gerry and the pacemakers at the end of the game?
