Not surprised, if you're spelling his surname like that.

Quite a bit has passed my lips but top bloke.

The forum's Jeremiahs have 365 days and 22 hours a year to have a go at attendances, venues, Sky, the BBC,  the game, the refs, the RFL and more. Wouldn't it be great if they could spare us all that for just two hours a year?

Four legs good - two legs bad

Congratulations to the Wire. Always great to see an underdog come up with the goods. And I had a small wager on them, the odds in a final when we know heavy favourites often struggle were just too good to ignore.

I hope Saints win the Grand Final though, it's a real challenge to bounce back from a Wembley defeat but it will prove they are a champion team and dispel the choker tag.

Feel slightly cheated as a neutral. Warrington were superb but I’m stunned by how bad Saints were today. Hideously bad.

Saints were put under pressure by Warrington's great play, Saints were very likely expecting to score a few at least n the first half but they didn't, that's what causes errors.

And now Saints coach talking about 12 points swing due to officials errors. I didn't really see the no try in slow mo from a clear angle, was it a try or not?

Wasn't too bothered about who won but after the way the Wire fans on here were so magnanimous when we beat them three years ago, I'm absolutely delighted for them today.

Commiserations to the Saints' lot,  I'm sure you'll have a big say in the end of season run in.

Until you get beat by Wigan in the GF that is...

Is Daryl Clark the finest athlete ever in any sport?   He’s just done that having put in massive defensive stint at hooker, scored a try, set up another and picked up a couple of trophies at the same time.

No, but he's one of the very elite at this moment in time.

What was the attendance, and will people moan like they did last year, and then will the RFL ask for a £500,000 bail for next year like they did for Catalans, Toronto & Toulouse to guarantee a full house

Looked a try on slo mo on the big screen I’m close to but can see why Hicks gave it no try. Looked a bit of a bounce in real time.

Looks like Harry enjoyed it.

Obvious Warrington fan.    Couldn’t stay impartial when he got the chance to meet his heroes.

12  points? That would have meant Wire 30, Saints 4, would it not? 😀

The big question now is - can Warrington use this a spur to get the bridesmaid monkey off their back.    The league isn’t gone for us yet.   If we can get some halves fit and combining well we could yet surprise a few in the playoffs.
