  1. it's been a while since i read a rlw, pretty good actually! green crayon moment though, page 37 of todays le, "darwen vale school from blackburn"...no, no, no! darwen vale is in darwen, hence the name.
  2. i think i should say that i had a splendid time on friday. free tickets for the west stand which more than made up for being designated driver and having to look after a rather p!ssed up relative, though to be fair he rarely gets a pass! cool wigan fans sat behind us who seemed to take my celebrating with good grace even though one or more had travelled a considerable distance to be there. lots of chanting between opposing fans after the game, some amusing some not, but not once did it threaten to overspill into anything more. wendall would have been disappointed.
  3. gmr phone in could be fun as jack dearden starts asking why 'the walk' started with 8 to go on friday!
  4. so was i, you're right he targetted the kicker...who should he have targetted? the waterboy? stadium announcer? the fans? the car park attendants?
  5. to be fair the paper that makes up the contract offers more go forward that the player himself.
  6. never mind protecting the little players, who's going to start protecting stuart 'christ, i cost loads' fielden.
  7. indeed. makes you wonder why mcguire shifted tomkins to full back, he'd have learnt a lot from an old ###### like briers. again. it seems the old 'we've never trained as hard' gubbins when a new coach comes in may not be as true as first thought. wire were fitter and had enough class to get home.
  8. it should have done, but it didn't. i don't think they forced one goal line drop out in that period. yes, we tackled, but they weren't tackles that left our line exposed. i didn't mean he was poor, but it wasn't the kind of game he thrives in, he's 'made' for a more open/broken game where he can be devastating, tackling and getting back the 10 isn't his game. still, who cares!
  9. you think? i thought they were poor in attack in that opening 20. it's ok using richards' height to launch the ball to, however, he was up against king who can also leap a bit which meant richards never got a clear chance, whereas if they'd have gone to the opposite wing they'd have discovered a munchkin over there! our defence really stepped up after that, only dropping off when tomkins launched his 'pass of the century' to set up their 2nd try. solomona was a waste of a bench spot, it wasn't a game for him, i think there was only 2 offloads made all game.
  10. that wasn't unpleasant. when we decided to actually play the game rather than try and knock wigan off the park we were good value for the win. carvell is a liability at times. westwood would be coveted by everyone if he didn't look like the world's most knackered axe murderer. harrison's hit would have been infinitely more impressive if it had been on a particularly small ballboy rather than fielden. wigan are still in transition, but will be almost unbeatable when a few antipodeans join the club.
  11. plus, it's not like fox was tight on the touchline, he a a fair way to actually move him.
  12. yeah, that's exactly the sort of criteria to judge the outcome of the game on!
  13. he was doing it at our place when he came on loan years ago!
  14. actually, there's a fair chance you will!
  15. what he said. he pulled off at least one try scoring tackle at the weekend, well, either that or the cas player ran at him and manoevered(sp?) mather's limbs around him deliberately to give the impression that he pulled off a great tackle! hogson had better be bloody good. 2 years!
  16. i'm not sure we'll have the same numbers that we took to sts. i also don't think we'll win, which is unusual for me! i just don't think we can stop them scoring less than 18 points which is what we'll need to do to get anything out of the game.
  17. i remember the name, but couldn't pick him out of a line up!
