Wigan look to be coming into form at the right time.

Steady on.

In my defense I'm rough with Covid and everything is hurting. Including my brain.

Look after yourself chief , speedy recovery

He doesn't but he can be a cunning stunt.

Well played Wigan. Actually appeared to be playing as a unit, especially defensively. As a footnote how will those Wigan fans entering the pitch to celebrate Hastings opening try, affect Cas and their suspended £15,000 fine.

It won't don't worry.

I dont want to sound grumpy or disrespectful of their efforts but Wigan v Saints GF just fills me with tedium. Perhaps it shouldn't but ....

TESTICULI AD  BREXITAM.

This Wigan performance wasn’t great but was much better than of late so credit where credit is due. Wigan took what few chances they had and their defence was excellent. It’s a pity that the Sky crew seemed to place more emphasis on a poor Castleford display rather than an improved one by Wigan.

Yes the sky commentators did. Now you mention it, they said Castleford beat themselves, without any mention that Wigan's defence had forced this.

that game wasn't as bad as the pundits and carney made out they seem to have a massive chip on their shoulders about wigan and can't seem to find anything good to say.

wigan played really well thats why cas couldn't score a little credit where its due please mr carney.

A highly satisfying win.  In my view, our defence was excellent. Our place kicks lamentable.  Our discipline still needs to improve. Our attack lacked structure, pattern, movement. Too often the ball was passed along a flat line of attack with each recipient running from a stand still.  Yes we won handsomely but Cas made many errors, forced and unforced.

I'm interested in that drive, that rush to judgment, that is so prevalent in our society. We all know that pleasurable rush that comes from condemning, and in the short term it's quite a satisfying thing to do, isn't it?

Harry Smith, it seems.😃

It's the only thing he's done so far. Bang average scrum half championship player at best.

The Turner who has played stand off throughout his career?

That's a bit of a stretch tbh, he was nearly always named at centre with very occasional run outs at off half.

And you can discount any performances for Hull FC at off half because we're not very good and would try anyone there.

 

Sky Sports Jenna Brooks to Jake Connor regarding England selection : "Shaun Wane has said that he's spoken to you about why you were left out, he's also said he's told you what you needed to do more of, I'm interested, what do you need to do more of and did you do it tonight?"

Jake Connor : "I don't know, to be honest I haven't spoken to him."

Please accept my apologies for laughing at your prediction i certainly didn't see that result coming.

I was watching a lot of fans, even Wigan fans slaughter their own team. 

I don't for one second think the young Wigan pack is out of its depth as Paul Sculthorpe suggested the other week. 

In fact Byrne and Shorrocks are the type of real hard working grafters that every team needs. 

The average age of thap pack the other week would have been about 21 had it not been for the fact that Farrell was in the line up 

 

I'm willing to be that no other team in NRL or super league history could boast a pack with an average age of 21
