Maybe the away changing rooms are not up to standard or the pre-match routine requires more space? Didn't Cas used to paint the away changing room walls pink or was that someone else?


Saints at Knowsley Road the away changing room was painted nursery pink for a couple of seasons under the instructions of Ian Millward I think.
The new young dynasty of super saints is coming to a ground near you.
Percival-Lomax--Grace-Thompson-Makinson-Swift-Walmsley, not Eastmond...the future is coming.

Have you been in the changing rooms at Cas? I have, they are very cramped and dingy. I'm not saying I would refuse to get changed in them, but I can understand if they feel there isn't enough space and it impacts on their preparation. I'm sure even Cas would admit that they aren't exactly befitting a professional sports team.


Yes they are small, but again every other club seems to cope. I'm sure most of the Wigan lads will have got changed in portacabins in their amateur days.

Are they a precious bunch?

There are quite a few a few legitimate reasons to dislike Wigan, so why make one up?


Except it's not made up. Obviously I can't guarantee we're talking about the same game, but what I posted definitely happened.

Was that the year Wigan cheated the salary cap? I think it was Fielden wasn't it? No wonder Cas blame you, I thought you should have gone down that year too.


This. Plus the fact Wigan fans, players and pudding man Wane still see us as a little team and have no respect for us.

You are correct that it was under Millward but I think the colour was purple. The reason being that it made the changing room a depressing colour and it was meant to affect the away teams players.
I am not biased; I'm not bothered who beats St. Helens.

I can't speak for anyone else but I certainly don't think that. I can't remember the last time we beat Cas at your place!

Last May.
"I'm sorry, but I would hope that we would beat Cas with a 1 day turnaround."

An arrogant Wigan fan a few days before we stuffed them 18-4 at the JJB.
