No matter how much you love RL there's some game's that are hard to watch that was definitely one of them. Wigan win easily but other than the clowns on Sky I don't think anyone else will be quaking in their boots, and if the pie eaters fans are happy with that it just shows how far their expectations and standards have fallen.

As for Wakey they are as bad or even worse than I thought seeing last week's highlights. Brough is surely finished as a SL player, I suppose there will be some club in the championship who will be daft enough to offer him far more money than he's worth for the baggage he brings with him, the only suprise was he couldn't even be arsed to argue with Hicks, usually in a game like that he would be a certainty for a few penalties or a sin binning.¬† ¬†Chester seems to be in the Radford class, his team plays ######, he admits it, says he doesn't know why or how to cure it yet continues on his merry way, makes you wonder what they have on their chairman ūüėé

I guess we will see in the next few weeks won't we?

We have two perennial bottlers at the top of the table, and a serial winner catching up so anything could happen.

Thoughoughly enjoyed the game. Sometimes you just have to sit back and admire the show. Not every game can be a a titanic battle closely fought.

It was obvious from about minute 10 that there would be no way back for Wakefield, though the introduction of the two giant Wakefield subs slowed things down a little. Shame that Pauli Pauli was poorly. The Wakefield tries exposed a Wigan weakness, but by then it was far too late. Impressed by the improvement in Wigan in recent weeks and still lots of work to be done. Williams and Farrell excelled, I thought and Williams will be missed very much next season. Did we miss O'loughlin and Leului (spelling? Well, it is 3 am!)

Wow the knives are really out.

Think that particular knife was already out when Tom Johnstone was top of the try scorers, David Fifita was an early contender for man of steel and Wakey were sitting in 3rd place.  Whatever.

What an awful performance.  Don't think I've left a game so early since we got thrashed at Halifax back in 2000.  Andy Kelly's last game in charge if I remember rightly.  Where is John Harbin when you need him.

Hats off to any Wakey fans, in there own transport, who stayed till the end.

Yes. Clogiron is being mean spirited. Wigan won easily enough with a young pack which Wigan fans can appreciate.  There is a long stretch to get to 3rd though. Never mind 4th.  The way things keep going however, Wigan are always going to be short due to injuries.

A pity Bullock is effectively out for the season, which is another blow.  I like Bullock but if he gets back fit I do think he needs a good close season and lose a few pounds. But Smithies seems to be coming on.

Bit of trouble in camp at wakey. Plus Chester doesn't seem to know how to get them playing as a team. They were clueless last week against cas and I don't see how they can have improved since then. Wakey are a shambolic outfit and no matter how weak Wigan are they should have no trouble with this game.

Bookies giving wakey 16pts start is a fair clue. Myself I think wakey would need at least 24pts on the handicap

My own personal opinion is that the players are no longer playing for the coach. You cannot lay all the blame on to the halves even though they are not producing or creating anything. The problem is with the forwards. They are not taking the ball in and their metres gained is pathetic. The halves cannot operate without a good platform to work from. Too much off loading by the pack. They are there to gain the hard yards, not to get involved in the "niceties" of the game. I suspect that the team "play to orders" on the field, no flair or footie off the cuff. Nine out of ten defeats. A shocking situation. Not looking good.

9 out of 10 games lost. Wow that is bad. Questions do have to be asked of what's going on. 

Wigan for me, do look a play off threat, if they can get all their men fit.

I am thinking more and more though this Saints team will grind out the close wins when needed, Coote at FB and Fages at HB instead of Barba and Richardson last year in the POs gives them more defensive solidity and calm under pressure. Saints win over Wigan last week was a big moment.
