Had a solid game. Been pleasantly surprised with his start to the season. We need to give him a contract extension as soon as possible before he gets snapped up by someone else!

Outplayed by the Pies, both teams shocking with ball in hand & the Hunch Back of Oldham did his best to only give us 6 or 7 at best instead of the 10.

Didn't see anything to suggest Wigan were World beaters or Leigh whipping boys either.

I think/know that Wigan had the edge on pace & game management, kicking game especially, 2 drop goal attempts 1st half though .... seriously.

How did Gelling stay on the pitch after deliberately kicking a ball on to stop play when Wigan were defending their 20 ? The most obvious professional foul play to stop the game & buy time for their defensive line to get set, should have been in the bin.

Having said all that, I don't think we ever looked like scoring, to much cheaply coughed up ball, especially 1st/2nd tackle on attack within Wigans 30.

We live, we learn.

Completely agree terry , while it was a 6 point game I was ' OK ' with conservative possession/field position play , once it went to 12 we should have opened up and chanced our arm

Bottom line is we are a SL team and we have to start believing it and fearing nobody , we don't know where or when our wins will come , so every game is a win if we believe we can do it , it really is that simple
