Once smith floats him those two passes I'm almost certain he's going to waltz through and he goes and does it. So silky!. His first year he didn't get enough opportunities to attack but he was totally solid and now he's getting a chance to show what he can do and it's world class.

Oh and Marshall - I assume its the painkillers for his op that stops Wane selecting him for GB? (I hope Shaun's recovering well). What a play - he's stretching just to get the ball back in the field he's that far up and out. Amazing.

And bevan... No need to be talk about bevan, because he done it all and he's doing it again

And the defence!

And the whole team! Just wow.
Agreed. Having a centre of his quality is amazing.

Good hard game. Hope O'Neil doesn't pick up a ban for that tackle that saw him sin binned. Looking at the replay the Leigh players head didn't hit the deck but you never know these days how the panel will react.

Entertaining game. Leigh are a strong side and had a dig but our defence is fantastic and we just have those extra bits of class from magic players in tight matches. Wardle is a Faberge egg of a centre and French and Marshall are top drawer.

Am sure O'Neill will get a ban as that seems to be the way the game is now but that tackle was the sort of effort that in the 1990s would have gone down in legend and won 'Hit of the Month'.

If Brad gets a ban then it really is time to pack it up.

The ref was all but certain to sit him down for 10 but that was enough same for mulhearn 10 mins just to cool it down a touch nothing more needed
