No question in my mind that May was blocked in that last Hull KR kick chase. Wigan get a 7 tackle set and score at the other end. These decisions matter.

There is a lot to be impressed with in the way Wigan play but a highlight for me is how their playmakers dig into the line and square up the defence.  It is so effective at creating space.

They run the same plays as many other teams do, just their execution is far better.

Rugby Union the only game in the world were the spectators handle the ball more than the players.

Watching my 4th RL game of the day, because I chose to have a lie-in and miss Gold Coast v Newcastle. How things have changed in just a few years.

The way Wigan commit a professional foul as soon as they turn over possession, to give a way a six-again when it was already the zero tackle, is admirably smart while also taking the mick out of the silly rule.

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.

Willie Peters needs to deliver a good half-time talk. KR haven't been awful, but they don't have the irrepressible spark that they have on their good days.

Looks like Hall bounced that. Something that Bernard Sutton could learn from.

Spot on. As a result, the pitch looks really wide when Wigan are attacking and really narrow when they are defending.
