  1. I really don’t mean to offend the Farnworth fan club. You love him, I get that. I am sure there are still annual reunions of the Reed and Heighington fan clubs as well, where they can swap stats all day. As I don’t pick the side, you will be pleased to know, whether he is selected or does well for England is out of my hands.
  2. We might need Lee to fill in if Crane goes walk about. I may have this wrong, but I thought of Clive Sullivan more as a red Robin than an Airlie Bird...
  3. He will be dead to me. I already think of him as Oli Heighington.
  4. Sorry to see him go, though we knew it was always his plan. Either we have not realised that a team needs to have 13 players including 7 backs, or we will promote or recruit. My money is on the latter.
  5. My all time favourite FC team: 1 Prescott 2 Eastwood 3 Schofield 4 Leuluai 5 O’Hara 6 Topliss 7 Sterling 8 Skerrett (the older) 9 Houghton 10 Taylor (I know they have had better, but I loved him at Wigan) 11 Crane 12 Jason Smith 13 Knocker
  6. Proved happily wrong, I am sure. I have a hooped top from the Kelvin Skerrett era somewhere which I will try and dig out for the semi, and hope that will be a higher point than yesterday.
  7. Oddly enough, I was happy enough for the first 25 minutes, and it was only when we went 2 scores behind I thought we were toast. In every other game - including the one we won against FC last week - we have not dominated in the forwards, and relied on resilience, greater mobility and fitness from having 8 second rowers to pull away. Today, our errors, the many interruptions and the balance of possession mitigated against that approach. Youth, speed of the game, being slightly off and FC won the day - there wasn’t much between the sides over the 2 games. I don’t think bullied is the right word,
  8. Or he had one of those days. He has been superb so far, and, who knows he might be playing well while you are re watching today’s game in a few months, as the high point of your year.
  9. Hats off the FC, they were far better on the day. With a team as light and young as ours, there will be days like this - happily we don’t have to play at a damp Headingley every week... FC could go a long way, as they are well balanced, and look well coached. I am not sure I would want to watch many more FC - Wigan matches. Having been lucky enough to watch all of our matches this year, the last 2 have been a difficult watch, with the odd ray of sunlight. From what I have seen so far, there is very little between the teams left in the competition. Great to see Manfredi back, God wil
  10. I think it’s a pity you don’t have better ways of filling your time.
