Oh another close one for Mr Bentham. I think he sneaked this.

Edit: he did and all

Bloody Nathan Brown can't even do us one good thing to make up for last season...

Sunday is going to be stressful...

good to come through a game where we went off the boil against a good team.

couple of players looked unfit, that game will do them some good.

Wire looked like they put the cue on the rack and Saints took advantage

If you're touching a player who is making a tackle are you 'involved' in the tackle. Wish Stevo would shut up.

That used to be the interpretation they must of changed it

when we changed iur front row for players who didnt look fit Saints took advantage and stepped up. When Wood, Hill and Higham came back on we took control again.

I thought it changed when Saints brought their best forwards on

Then changed back after a couple of errors took the pressure off - those errors might have been down to the Wire forwards changing again though, so yeah

Then again, a champion team is quality from 1-17 not just 1-13

Entertaining game. Wire need to be able to sustain a level of intensity throughout the game rather than going all out and tiring. The one point really killed Saints' ever building momentum.

Saints won't challenge, Wire might.

For me the momentum changed when wire after gifting the ball to Saints managed to get to the kick on three or four sets on the bounce. They didn't do anything special in them but it gave them the chance to have a breather and also stopped saints pressure. It's easy to change momentum on the back of opposition mistakes or penalties but the good teams can do it themselves through hard work.

ordinarily those interchanges would have made us stronger, I just think lack of fitness dropped our intensity just as Saints stepped it up.

Personally id have split that bench up a bit better - starting with Morley and bringing Hill on after 20.

monaghan was ineffective too.

When you've grown up with our record versus Saints you'll take anything. Hill, Westwood and Harrison were unplayable in the first half, that's what won it.

Lee's dropgoal was the perfect play at the perfect moment.

Indeed.....there were definite points in that game when saints threw away valueable possession when they were in danger of building pressure on wire.....in the 2nd half wire just dug in

Saints did make some baffling decisions in the second half. As for Wire, their kicking game gave them the edge.

Brown has to give Walmsley more game time. In terms of their go-forward, they look like a different side when he's on the field. Spelling players is all well and good, but to leave him on the bench until the game was more or less lost was madness.

Half backs the difference, Briers attacking kicking game was second to none whilst we lacked some sparkle when it mattered. The awful start didn't help.

Massive impact by Harrison tonight, the biggest positive for Wire by far.  Great win too.

 

I'm going to watch the recording tomorrow so I'll reserve judgement on the officials. I'm not a ref basher but I thought a lot of that tonight was out of kilter with what I've seen so far this season.

It wasn't. He didn't give a penalty when Higham lifted the legs above the horizontal and that's about it. (Watched on tv with replays, pored over by Sky)

What about the bit where Cooper tried to decapitate Lomax? What did he give then?

Lol, careful, you'll be in danger of losing your 'credibility' as a Leigh fan.

The great thing about that incident was that Cooper never moved, Lomax just ran into his chest.

His swinging arm was quite dangerous though. If he had caught Lomax with it he could of done some serious damage.
