Some fairly loose play pays off for Wigan. But there were a few moments where it could have gone the other way before the try was scored.

Think that’s game over this Saints team won’t score 18 pts.

"When I saw the Pistols and The Clash I realised it didn't seem that difficult, they didn't seem like they could play very well either, so the thing was to form a band then work it out. We didn't even know who was going to play what - we passed around all the instruments until we found what we were comfortable with. I wasn't comfortable with any of them so I became the singer."

Does Lomax ever throw a pass other than forward, 4 times so far.

Has Lomax only thrown 4 passes this half?

That was one was definitely Welsby, oh dear.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

A bit lucky that penalty for Wigan

you mean where the wigan player goes to ground to milk a penalty or some would say, he played for the penalty or cheated... for me he went down to con the ref... or he cheated in the topic of the week...

anyway I think that,s stuffed Saints.

I won't feel comfortable unless Wigan are 10 tries up at 75 minutes.

I didn't feel very comfortable when Bevan French was ten tries up v Hull FC a few weeks back.

How's that Wigan's head and feed?

I'm assuming there was a St Helens hand in there somewhere, but it wasn't immediately apparent. Anyway, it didn't lead to a score.

He’s ran the ball more than usual I don’t know if it’s a ploy or maybe Wigan have gotten to Welsby a bit and he’s taking it on more to protect him.

Not with that back line. 

Big difference between the two sides. When Batchelor broke through earlier, nobody was with him. Smith did the same and Field scored under the posts. The only person with any pace in the Saints back line is Welsby (and he’s having a stinker).

Don't watch many games, but always try and catch this fixture.

One question though - I see the clock is counting up. I'm sure I watched a game recently (might have been on BBC Super League show) and the clock was counting down. Am I mistaken or does it vary sometimes?

Worlds greatest player having a mare so far.

He’s a young player these games are going to happen it’s why most Saints fans have said he’s not ready for England.  Unfortunately Tomkins form has dropped so much this year we haven’t got much choice.

I've been one of those that thought he should be in the mix but he's quickly playing himself out of it. If Wigan can rile him and force mistakes by making him lose his composure then the Aussies would have a field day.
