Re: Wigan squad for Hull FC (R18)

This is just one of those days. We've had them before. It doesn't make it any more bearable. I'm a little surprised Matt Peet didn't at least try to freshen things up a little bit. The likes of Thompson, Havard and Ellis have been flogged in the last few games. It's not so much with this game in min...

Re: Liam Byrne

I've said many times on here that many props don't really hit their peak until their late twenties. Some props show early promise but take a while to fulfil it. Byrne reminds me a bit of Gil Dudson. Gil had plenty of size and showed some early promise but never really kicked on until later in his ca...

Re: DISCIPLINARY

My biggest concern is the manner in which this tackle occurred. Immediately before it Keighran was involved in a coming together with Welsby. They literally get separated and he immediately rushes in and makes a reckless lifting tackle. It's really poor from someone who should have learned a lesson ...

Re: Wigan squads for Derby double-header

Anyone concerned about Harrys tip tackle? Hopefully not a ban. I’m getting concerned at the number of times he’s trying this. Watching the game back it’s becoming a regular thing and I think the coaching staff need to address his technique or he will pick up ban somewhere along the line. He was luc...

Re: Welsby

no issues whatsoever with players celebrating / winding up the opposition fans we can give them stick / abuse etc for 80 minutes, but dont expect any back, sorry but i dont blame them if they do. I've seen some just turn around and smile (usually when some over weight person is calling them a fat b...

Re: Wigan squads for Derby double-header

Hi EEP. I always look forward to reading your excellent summaries, and often learning from your observations. . . . BUT . . . I think your analysis above, whilst good on detail, misses the main point: we had 4 spine players out. Nothing Peet or the team could do could change that. Yes, as Josie has...

Re: Wigan squads for Derby double-header

I thought it was a really great effort. All the talk was going to be about how many players Saints had missing but crucially they did have a very good starting pack of forwards and they had 3 very good playmakers in Clarke, Lomax and Welsby. They were always going to pose a threat as long as their f...

Re: Wigan squads for Derby double-header

So go on whos gonna play hooker? My moneys on Keighran.Not seen the new lad yet but believe hes a loose forward.I think our forwards should murder theirs but im also betting mbaye gets the ban dropped later tonight Keighran has prior experience but I'd be very nervous about having such a young righ...

Re: Vegas here we come

So I can expect a discounted season ticket next year? If the season ticket price was frozen for next year it would work out as an extra £1.50 per game for those renewing with the most expensive season tickets (sideline view adult). It's not outrageous given how much everything seems to cost these d...

Re: Vegas here we come

I think it's worth the risk in an effort to increase the profile of the game improve sponsorship opportunities. It's only one game and I'm happy to miss one if it's to do something a little bit different. I'll still be able to watch it on TV and anyone who wants to go can have what's probably a once...
