  1. Teams just coming out now, kick off delayed by ten minutes due to the massive turnout.
  2. The players cooked them aswell as a kind gesture to the supporters for the poor season. Good to know that at least Worrincy can do something right (albeit cooking sausages)
  3. Just a reminder that Sky Sports will be hosting a Super League Grand Final preview show tonight at 19:00 and 21:30 on Sky Sports 2. Also worth a mention is the Time of our Lives feature which this week looks back at the Wigan sides of the early 90's. This is on Sky Sports 3 tomorrow at 13:00 and is repeated on Monday at 20:00 before the delayed highlights of the England vs Cumbria game starting at 21:00 on Sky Sports 2.
  4. About 150/300 at Odsal usually, although we had a gate of 1000+ vs Wakefield last year when we had the BBQ open day.
  5. Great stuff Rob. I'm just going to send them an email now.
  6. I'm a fan of the North West Quadrant myself. Great view.
  7. I read it somewhere that the capacity will be capped at 72,400 for this years Grand Final. I'll try find the link.
  8. I think it'll be around the 69k/70k mark.
  9. Looks like St Helens are struggling for supporters after reading yesterdays Guardian. Wigan sold out of their allocation of 12,000 tickets inside 48 hours, after four-hour queues formed outside the DW Stadium, whereas Saints still have tickets remaining at Knowsley Road despite sending some back to be sold centrally by the Rugby Football League
  10. Do you have room in your car for me? I can't get to the game as the only train of the day from Bradford doesn't arrive into Whitehaven until after 16:00 and then I can't get one back till Monday am
  11. But to not even get a mention on the main sport page is nothing short of a disgrace. Kick n ###### even features three times I mean does this really wet your appetite for live sport: Rugby: Heineken Cup - Leinster vs Metro Racing "Can Brian O'Driscoll fire up Leinster"
  12. Going for St Helens to win this one, on the back of the Cunningham factor alone. Now some may say it's ridiculous of myself to even suggest that Cunningham retiring from the game after a great playing career with St Helens is a big enough factor for St Helens to win the game. But I just have a sneaking feeling that Mr Cunningham and St Helens will finish the season on a high come 19:45 on Saturday night. Wigan are slight favourites with the bookies and after the season they've had, in winning the Floodlit 9's, finishing top and not to mention the clean sweep of awards at the Man Of Steel awards ceremony it's hard not to see why. It's going to be a tough ask for St Helens to produce the goods (minus two of their main gamebreakers in Pryce and Eastmond) and stop a possible fourth consecutive Grand Final loss. Wigan's defence last weekend at Headingley was a joy to watch, I've never seen anything as formiddable in all my years of watching the greatest game. The way the scrambling defence closed those half gaps and shut out wave after wave of Leeds attacking play was fantastic and breathtaking. One of the hardest Grand Finals to call IMO and the two Super League results don't give anything away. I'll call a Wigan Warriors 18-22 St Helens result.
  13. Apologies I couldn't answer the phone earlier Paul, I was with my GP.
  14. Well here we have it ladies and gents, the Sky Sports October highlights taken from this months (allegedly prestigious) Sky magazine. In the eyes of Sky Sports this coming Saturday the most important event that they (yes it's on ESPN but the Sky/ESPN partnership exists) are showing isn't the Grand Final but Scottish Football and Hearts vs Rangers. See here: I find it disgusting that Sky should not mention the Grand Final at all. Also disgusting is for Sky to rate the Leeds Carnegie vs Sale Sharks game over the New Zealand vs England Four Nations game. Not one mention of Rugby League at all. So if anyone would like 90 sheets of toilet paper for free, please drop me a line asap as this is going in the bin in five minutes time.
  15. I know there rumours circulating for a proposed Terry Newton memorial pre-season tournament between Bradford, Leeds, Wakefield and Wigan. Over two weekends with one in Lancashire and one held in Yorkshire. This would raise a lot of money to help Terry's wife and children.
  16. Cheers mate and I hope people enjoy the new me. p.s Let us know if your taking in any of the 4 Nations events at the George.
  17. It was one of those you had to be there moments mate. p.s Good luck for Sunday, I'll be cheering for the St Chokers
  18. Menzies converts from in front and the hooter sounds and the Wigan party can start in earnest.
  19. Wigan Warriors 34-10 Bradford Bulls after 78:00 minutes. Try: Lynch. Fantastic try, to speed through from the Sykes grubber to touch down.
  20. Wigan Warriors 30-6 Bradford Bulls after 75:00 minutes. Try: Goulding Platt knocks on from the kick-off and Goulding will set up the chance for Pat Richards to break the record held by Andy Farrell.
  21. Wigan Warriors 30-6 Bradford Bulls after 72:00 minutes. Try: Kopczack Goal: Sykes 1/1 Over 17,000 inside the DW Stadium, amazing crowd with around 300 from Bradford.
  22. Wigan Warriors 30-0 Bradford Bulls after 67:00 minutes. No Try against the Bulls, says it all really.
