I want to see a length-of-the-field chase between French and Ashton, and I don't care which one is carrying the ball.

A played got badly injured, that took uip quite some time. 

Aye, I’m including that but a fair bit of that time was also taken with video replay time. So the actual additional for it wasn’t too much.

Don't worry; your eyesight's probably worse than a full-time professional Rugby League referee, but as long as one eye is working, you'll please 50% of the fans.

Yeh I think French would shave it on pace but Ashton is fearless in defence so we can’t complain.

Ashton does look rapid. I reckon he might win that one.

Warrington been the better attack since going down to 12, Wigan look very disjointed.

Surprised Wigan couldn’t take advantage more of the extra man in the second 20.

Guess Warrington will tire in the last 15 or so?

Ashton is a real find.   Hope he gives Price a headache all season.

After 30 minutes?

Maybe let's see how he does for the rest of the season before the smoke blowing begins?

They were also the better attack before going down to 12.

The update is that modern RL is rubbish because because because.

In other news, Warrington certainly looked sharper, but it was one try each before Hill swung an arm and Powell was rendered unconscious. The tackle didn't look deliberate, but the result did look worrying.

A swinging arm can be deemed "not deliberate"?  Hmmm....

Yep, that's true. Ratchford has been excellent with ball in hand, Wigan look terrified of him.

Never a red.

Otherwise every mistimed tackle is going to be a red. Might as well just pack up and go home 

The doors over there..and it's open! 😀

It can be a panic or desperate reaction, like Shaun Edwards on Bradley Clyde. You see an opposition player going through a gap, and you try and glom onto him any way you can.

It amazes me the friendly fire Ratchford has taken over the years. He's so versatile, alert and resilient, you'd think he'd be valued by more Wire fans.

I'm not watching game but Wigan always start the season slow.  I do not know about other teams but for me despite the hype, Wigan always start underdone and not enough pre season.

I'm not convinced Wigans starting line-up is it's best or or it's best positions.

Wigan seem to push the rules too much for me... some of their tackling techniques seem to be to intentionally injure, and the constant whinging!!!

Warrington seem unable to stand square at the ptb and are now pushing the refs leniency too. 
the game needs to be strongly refereed but if the referee picked everything up there would be a penalty every minute... perhaps even every tackle 

I still don’t know how Wigan got away with a leading (non ball carrying) elbow to the throat of the tackler... that was at least a penalty and on report! 
 

there’s  a decent game of RL waiting to break out here
