The kind of try you score out of nowhere when everyone's working in sync.

What I call a scoreboard try. Only happens when you’re 4 or 5 score up.

That's Hiku banned next week the grub.

Peters has got a lot more right than wrong, but Hiku has been a terrible bit of recruitment.

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.

    Lewis has been terrific although losing easily he has never stopped trying.

his agent needs to get in touch with trent robinson before he wastes his career in hull

Played strong, done fine-Jack Gibson.

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

Hull KR have had smoke blown up their backsides all season, maybe it’s just me but they aren’t as good as people are saying. They've done a great job in rebuilding but they aren’t quite there yet.

Agreed.

In my view, Hull KR were pretty good...but that's not good enough when we're on song. With Lewis, they were always in with a chance but they came across a Wigan team determined to get to Wembley. Quicker round the play the ball , though not as quick as Hull KR, but quicker thinking and with more field vision than Hull KR. 

Hull KR not making the best use of Hall, either. In my view, they need to bring him in-field more in attack. 

One factor was to me that our discipline was better than it has been of late to though they can do better.

Nobody at Rovers thinks we are. But we’ve already beaten that Wigan side and can do again. That’s rugby league at this level: If you make 6 or 7 daft errors in the first half against one of the top 2 sides, you’re going to get punished and it’d take a miracle to win. Even harder when your opponents are gimme’d a 10 point lead by poor decisions, which having watched the start back is pretty clear. Scoreboard pressure is critical in the big games.

Rovers still lack that maturity and consistency. We’ll be a lot better next season if we keep making this sort of progress though, and the squad will be better again next year. 

I’ve watched Rovers lose more badly to a lot worse teams than this exceptionally good Wigan side. These are still the good times as far as I’m concerned. We dust ourselves off, and go again.

Kr weren't at the races today. Unlucky mate. Still got something to play for though.

Lewis wouldn’t have even had a shot at a career if it wasn’t for the Rovers’ organisation appreciating the unconventional. Hull rejected him, and people were even unconvinced when he was on loan at Thunder too. So being given an opportunity, nurtured, supported and developed isn’t a “wasted” anything. Lewis knows that. 

To be honest he isn’t an “NRL half” anyway, and I say that as his biggest advocate. If he’d come through the Australian system he’d have been a full back, so I think it’s highly unlikely an NRL club will come in for him until he has developed his game management skills significantly. He has the potential to be a great half in 3 years or so I reckon, and only if he can make that progress will he be wanted Down Under.

Wigan 71 Bradford 10, 1992 semi-final at Bolton, is the record semi-final score.

John Monie gave the team a game plan, Gregory said can we not just rip 'em apart boss, Monie, no stick to the plan.

In the tunnel on the way out Greg said to the team feck him, we'll tear them apart.

By jove this Wigan team are good!!

Rovers were never at the races, 1st half was reminiscent of our 2022 semi final agains them, we never let them get a sniff, they also had a lot of disappointed fans that day too, a lesson here is having a load of fans don't mean nothing!!!

Well done Wigan and the match officials who i thought had a super game.

And I think that’s the key. This performance from us came about because of everything that had gone before. A lot of these players know what is required, because they have done it in the past. HKR aren’t there yet - when they are on song and dictate terms they can and will beat anyone, but they haven’t yet learnt how to deal with a watertight defence and attacking threats from every angle. I have seen no reason not to be sure that, in Peters and their back office leadership, they have the people there to make that step. This was a moment in time, but the HKR trajectory is impressively upwards.

Msemba is starting to look the part really developing into a quality player. How old is he?.  

19! It’s scary his potential. Sadly I suspect it’ll be on show in the NRL in a couple of years time. He admitted before he’d even made his Wigan debut that he hopes to follow his best mate (Pearce-Paul) over there at some point.
