This could be the penultimate derby for Wane, so I'm going for a Saints win.

Saints without Taia, Percival, Barba and (everyone keeps forgetting) Walmsley.

That’s some serious talent not on the pitch. Reflected in a stilted attack, I think. But the young replacements are doing a good solid job in defence thus far.

Saints missing bona fide class players and still winning. Wigan missing nobodies and using it as an excuse

An brilliant performance given we had 4 important players missing. Should definitely have scored a lot more points but defensively outstanding yet again. I got laughed at when I said Thompson should be in the England squad at the start of the season but yet again he proved why he’s the best prop in SL. If it wasn’t for Barba and Roby he’d be in MOS contention. Roby once again brilliant, best hooker in SL history.

O’Loughlin certainly not a nobody but well past his best. Players missing for Saints definitely better than those missing for Wigan.

saints had a whopping 4 players missing, 3 of which were probably rested and it's almost enhanced as a bloody injury crisis !!! Wigan with escare Burgess gildart lockers Williams Farrell missing, that's off the top of my head. That said Wigan were absolutely putrid. I think when escare returns they need to get Tomkins into the halves as he is the only sign of life they have.

Long way to go yet though, top 4 looks like it might be as it is now with maybe 2 3 4 just to shape out.

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

Not much creativity in that Wigan side they seem to rely on Tomkins all the time and Bateman to go forward and those 2 players are missing for next season. Powell is a terrible scrum half running sideways all the time and his passes have no impact at all.

As for Saints there fitness and mobility is the stalwart of there defence, wigan only managed one clean break all night, saints made loads of breaks to be dominant but couldn't finish them off with a bigger score line, thought they were worth 2 scores more.
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.
