One red card apiece (Ashworth & Singleton) for handbags, so at least the sides are still evenly matched in numbers.

It wasn't handbags, there were some full on punches thrown.

Nice to see some of our village neighbours visit the capital today, they seemed to enjoy their day out despite the score. Hope they had a nice train journey home from whichever of the 2 Wigan railway stations they travelled.

I bet they got to the ground before you did...

We were on early, nobody had scored when we sat down. 😄

Looking at the video, it's a harsh send off on Jack Ashworth.  Yes there was a bit of messing around at the ruck (as there is in every tackle) but Brad Singleton hits him twice with good shots.  I am really not sure what Ashworth is supposed to do... just keep getting hit!

Decent enough from Wigan given how poor the attack has been and considering we probably had 6 of our first choice backline out (certainly 5 in French, Manfredi, Hardaker, Gildart and Marshall. The 6th between Field who missed the game or Leuluai who lasted 15 minutes). It was great to see Harry Smith play really well and kick really well. 
 

Leigh are dreadful mind but you can only beat what’s in front of you. Singleton and Ashworth will both cop a ban. I’d guess Partington as well but Rob Buttler should get the biggest ban for hitting Singleton from behind (with punches my old nan would be ashamed of) 3 times whilst he was being held in the melee. That’s what set Partington off.

Partington needs ' setting off ' ? 😂

We played like a team that hasn't played for a month , with half a team full of changes from last time we played , despite Wigan missing their first choice back line they still had miles more pace than ours , and even though they lost Tommy L , that just meant Hastings stepped into 6 in attack , looks like we've lost Wildie and a couple of others

Just the usual for us , bring on KR to the lobby done next week , you'll all be able to watch it in glorious colour , that's if it doesn't get postponed 😂

It was a hand written invite for the mild mannered Ollie Partington😁 It was soft from Buttler though and warranted somebody going in on him. 
 

It’s been a tough old season for Leigh but with one hand tied behind your back, it was always going to be so. Maybe it’ll be a fair crack of the whip next season going off the rumours flying around. I hope so because in the current climate when we need all the income we can get, games between the two clubs will help each other out.

Most Championship sides would have beaten Leigh yesterday. They didn't look interested. 

 

That post sums it up. A few have signed elsewhere the rest haven’t been offered contracts, and don’t seem interested in winning one. We have little pace and all 3 we’re missing  plus Reynolds at 6 who can at least defend unlike Ellis. It seems we are building for next year with Stone to arrive soon, Logan here today  and McDonald? already here.

as fans when you know you won’t win the quality match up, you expect graft and that wasn’t there at all

Partington will probably cop the longest ban, and rightly so.

There will be a few sweating on the video being watched by the MRP as the 2 sent off weren’t the only ones who threw punches

i was surprised by that figure as well i guessed at 8000 and i usually get it about right, i also guessed the wakefield game at 7000 and they gave 5500 which was definately wrong.

Its usually easy to get a good estimate at Wigan if you have an idea about block sizes, its been a bit trickier recently as people are spreading out a bit more than usual.

You clearly implied it by quoting me and then stating what you did.

You made no reference to a number , I gave my opinion , it's called discussion 

So why did you quote me?

Somebody else quoted figures but you chose to quote me who made no reference to figures.
