Would you be?   A real fluke, but thats what happens when a ball bounces... off a poor drop goal.  And millimetres on/off side and millimetres to dead in goal !

I’m not saying it as a criticism.

I know it’s hard to take but to keep going on about it being a lucky win sounds like sour grapes tbh.

Brilliant game, poor result from my point of view, but we get another go at it next year when I think Wigan will be better.

One disappointing aspect is the habitual reaction of the likes of Snapski and Just Browny. When is TRL going to open a nursery sub-forum for these children?

Well done to Saints, you rode your luck, and got the prize.

It is no more of a fluke than a reliable kicker like Don Fox missing an easy conversion. This is what sport comes down to sometimes. If it was predictable, who'd bother watching?

Hes a machine, plays like a young Bateman.

Can't wait 'til 2021, when he gets to play the ur-Bateman. Could be tasty.

Well done St Helens. I was wishing for a different result, but I won't forget this final soon. Incredible.

Hang on a sec, hear me out.

Was it actually a drop goal anyway? I think it bounces and then goes over the crossbar before Welsby puts it down.

Just checked the wording. It doesn't say specifically for a drop goal, but for a 'goal' it says... "A goal is scored if the whole of the ball at any time how scored during its flight passes on the full over the opponents’ cross bar towards the dead ball line after being kicked by a player"

So 'during its flight' suggests no goal if it bounces.

That's the main reason I think Wigan will be better next season. He will bring a much needed energy to Wigan's attack when he returns.

If Wigan can keep that strong defence, and up the attacking threat a bit, I think we could be much better next year.

I could be wrong however, it will probably be Warrington's year.

Oh dear, all it took was a pat on the shoulder from LMS to pass on the potty-mouth virus to Walmsley.

Plus those young Wigan forwards will be starting the season with a year's more experience than they had at the start of 2020. I think there's a lot more to come from those kids too.

Nice to see LMS's influence on Alex Walmsley making him drop the f bomb for a change.

England RU Coach Eddie Jones : "I spent a bit of time up at Hull and I like the full back there Connor, he's a tough, skilful player"

Jake Connor : "I've never played Union, it doesn't look that hard, you never say never but it looks too boring for me"

I am outraged that Sky haven’t apologised yet
