And, as for the other half, it wasn't for lack of trying. :kolobok_wink:

Yes although I’d be panicking if half our base defected to our nearest rivals 😋

When does the new PTB rule come into force?

Saturday when Catalans and Huddersfield get penalised for it

Warrington will be good to watch this season with those players 

With Widdop, Hughes and the new prop Latu to turn out it will hopefully be even better to watch.   Let’s hope we are consistently entertaining though.

Warrington unfortunate  with the Kendall decision, knockon/chargedown. Could well have scored with another set from that position.Wigan poor. Ashton  going g to carry on where he left off in the Championship  by the look of it

Some ranting goes on when a decision goes against Wigan.

Both/most teams are guilty of it these days, start dishing yellows out they'll soon stop!

I'll have to check the highlights, but both teams need to improve from the sound of it, possibly for different reasons.  16 - 10 in the circumstances not convincing for Wigan. I think there is some wishful thinking about Wigans selections.

Hope Powell is not badly hurt, but must be out for a while even with just a concussion protocol.

Not sure it's really fair to criticise Wigan for looking less fluid in attack than Warrington. Most team's attack would probably suffer from having their dummy-half stretchered off.

Enjoyable game that. Both teams will improve and be up there at the end of the season. French is an entertainment machine but there were plenty others on show from both teams.

A better game than I expected for the first game of SL 25. Would have been Warrington's game if they'd had better discipline.  Wigan clearly have work to do.  Not convinced by French at fullback and Hardacre in the centres.  Wigan need to sort their discipline around the PTB, too.


Four legs good - two legs bad

They were poor before he went off though.

Enjoyable game... lots of effort... both teams  fresh from the wrestling mats. Lots to work on, lots of controversy, lots to look forward to!

Thought Warrington looked sharp, and bodes well for Wire fans.

they could have quite easily won that.

Wigan should plenty of spirit, but little in the way of end product.

decent first game though.

That was a belter. Talking points galore! That Murdoch-Masila charge over Burgess was brilliant!

Wire might have lost but there was a lot to like. They held out well in defence and Ashton looked exciting in attack and defence. It was their ill discipline that cost them.

Wigan did what they needed to, harder to judge them as they had the man advantage but got the win that they should have.

Thought Kendall handled a tricky game well. Tackled nonsense at the play the ball, didn't bottle the yellow and red cards, good call on the J Burgess held up call and correct to say Burgess charged the ball down and not awarding a knock on.

Yippee, I got one right, think I will step down from predictions while I'm in front!

First game up and all that but nothing on show there to give Saints sleepless nights. Injuries apart complacency might be their biggest opponent in the forthcoming season, is SL going to mirror football in Scotland again where the most interest is at the bottom of the division🤔

15,040.

Wigan Today report said Burgess had not figured in the pre season... !!!   So if so please... why was he selected?  Not convinced by either the selection process or pre season work (irrespective of any self serving articles from WT).

I'd suggest the same.  Saints will continue to try to blow teams away in the first 20 minutes.
