Eh?

I know Wigan run the RFL but surely they can't do summat as obvious as give themselves a bye on Saturday.

What will Sky show instead...a repeat of Salford's victory against Saints?

Now that would be sweet. 

Goodness knows how this will go - up to last Sunday I thought I had a sense of how good we are, but now v uncertain. Will be closer than the London bus game, though.

Don't be ridiculous, you silly sausage. Wigan cannot give themselves a bye, they will have paid Wakefield a considerable sum to give it to them instead.

Seeing as Saints are now in form they will probably win at Salford. The Cas 19 has been announced and they are missing half a team.  Hull FC to win that one.

If both those predictions come true then Wakefield v Wigan will be a dead rubber.

Not necessarily.

Granted it would take a Wigan win by 65 + Saints' winning margin to overtake them in the league table but we've seen a 62 point winning margin between Wakey and Wigan at Belle Vue only last season so anything's possible.

So you can always live in hope...oh, just a minute...about that winning margin...:blink: :ph34r:

I think you have to win by 91 unless Hull lose.

Seems that, OF, my predictions came through.

How Wigan react after that shambles last week will be interesting. Wakey will be full of it following their stadium news.

Dead rubber... lol.

It would be interesting to see how funny everybody would have found it had Wigan put in the same kind of performance that cas did tonight in similar circumstances.

This forum would have exploded.

What's the joke?

Saints get an extra week before their holidays and these 2 teams are losers - I think. It would take an on form Peter Kay to hang a routine on it though.

Whatever format we play in be it top 4, 5, or 8, this has turned out to a game that the competing teams were reliant on others to make this game meaningful as they now cannot make the semifinals, it is a dead rubber for the reason alone that they have not won enough games and collected enough points in their previous 29 games to make the game matter to either, it has nothing to do with as some detractors of the 8's will have us believe.

Wigan did put that kind of performance in against a very similar cas side to tonight's.
