And what relevance does that have to the head to head stats?
Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

Shows a W/L record against one single team is meaningless in the grand scheme of things. Leeds were 50/50 with Warrington and Widnes in the league last year....what did that mean in the grand scheme of the year as a whole? We beat Hull 2-0 in 2016 yet we were the laughing stock in the middle 8's whilst they were thought of as the team of the year.

You beat Wigan in Rounds 16 and 30 last year. Between those games you went W5 L8.

It has no relevance except in Printers world - he's the answer to a question nobody asked.

It has plenty of relevance to normal people except Wildcats fans who think results against one certain team are what is the bee all and end all.

You can beat Wigan 2-0 in the regular season next year, you can make it 3 in the Supet 8's....but if you don't follow it up with enough wins elsewhere then it means jack all.

I agree it is meaningless the year we got relegated we put 50 on both Wakefield and castleford on there own turf didn't do us any good

There you go again with your generalisations about Trinity fans.
Like I've said to you before, I always thought you were a decent poster when you were ThePrinter, but for some reason almost every time anyone who supports Wakey posts on here & no matter how trivial you're all over them like you're looking for an argument, what's that all about because I don't see you do it with fans of other teams too much when you could. :CHILL:

He was decent when we weren't very good and he could patronise us. Just shows how fragile the egos are on this forum and he's not alone. Odd thing is his prediction don't look that ridiculous so makes you wonder what the problem is.

We've rattled a load of pre- conception in the past two yeas and they can't stand - hence the fact that at best most have us to do no better than last year.

Of course they may be right, I don't think there are many Wakey fans who think we will be champs. Hell we may even crash and burn but that's the same with all teams just look at Warrington last year.

However the season hasn't started yet and anybody can see we have made some potentially very good signings especially compared to some other clubs. That's why you have to smile at some of the teams placed above us by some. There is no logic it's just none sense and prejudice.

If your as good as your last game then Wigan shouldn't be anywhere near.

That said I'm sure Wigan will recover its in their DNA but right now they look poor. No just picking on Wigan, despite Printers propaganda Leeds looked no great shakes on Boxing Day even with a fairly strong squad.Cas got beat though it was a weak team.

You can't tell now really but if you were basing it on logic - last years results - this years sightings then Wakefield have to be top 6 though it would kill mr zucchini to admit it.

Again I'm not saying we actually will but if your being genuine with the facts at hand you'd pretty much pick similar finishing positions as last year with perhaps Salford giving way for fairly obvious reasons.

But hey shifty we are upperty Tri fans with a chip on our shoulders and no right to be ambitious or optimistic - wouldn't want to upset the cost status quo that has existed in RL for the last 20 years.

Cas tried and look what happened - back in your boxes.
