Gwylym Lloyd is fantastic. His voice reaches remarkably high tones of excitement when Rovers are close to scoring yet manages to sound like he's describing funeral proceedings when Wigan score.

4-34, 20 mins left.

Charnley fumbles the ball over his own line.

10-34, Lee Richardson suggesting it was a charitable decision by the ref.

"Sixth and final tackle now..."

No Gwillam, it's the FIFTH and final tackle! If it was the sixth it'd be a turnover!


This make sense to anyone else?

The last tackle is called after five tackles haves been completed, meaning it's the sixth.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

All commentators call it the "Fifth and final tackle" after the fifth tackle because it's the final tackle before, when you're tackled, you have to hand the ball over.

 

So it's the "Fifth and final tackle" before the "Final final tackle"... :wacko:

 

Caro again getting slaughtered by Lee Richardson after yet another error leads to Tomkins' fourth try.

 

10-46.

Gollum's version makes more sense to me, we play a six-tackle rule.

He didn't say "that was the 6th tackle" (past tense).....so by saying "it's the 6th and final tackle now" (present tense), I take that to mean that they're currently on the last play and so it would be six once complete.

If Gollum ever reads your post, he'll print it off and frame it.

26 tries in 14 games for Tomkins. Messi-esq rate of finishing.

Yet, when Wigan scored 84 points in East Hull the other week, he only got one.

 

Poor.

Predictable result, looked like we tried to be physical, but Wigan still to much class.

 

The way Green was taken out looks like word got back to the Rovers players about the bragging in the Wigan ranks about who was going to score the most tries today. Stupid play really because the way you answer things like that is by winning the game, not with a cheap shot that gets you 3 game ban :angry:
