As much as I love Wigan RLFC am I genuinely the only supporter who no longer enjoys watching this team?

I watch nearly all the other teams and only when they play us do I see them drawn into a dull 1 out snoozefest.

We have talent in this team but absolutely 0 direction.

Only when we look like losing do we start to play rugby.

For me we need a wholesale clear out of the coaching staff starting with Bitcon and finishing with Wane.

No team has been affected by injuries like us in 2 years and equally no team looks so lacking in any atacking ability and also defensively poor.

Time for a change for me.

Warrington dominated the arm wrestle today,our forwards got dominated,another game goes by and Williams does nothing,Tommy gets pulled up all the time but Williams has been worse the last couple of months imo,Gelling was shocking again and doesn't look the same player as last year.
We deservedly got beat tonight but it was 100% a drop out before they scored and the pen on Bateman was harsh,Hiku pushed Bateman first.
Top 4 hopes gone now and unless we sort it out the challenge cup will be gone in 2 weeks time.

Dominated in the forwards. Wigan made Simms look far harder than he is. Wire were actually pretty dire, which says a lot about Wigan really. YOu can laud them for their defense and I guess you can only play what's infront of you but Wigan hardly tested them.

Another point - 3 decisions went against Wigan - the supposed 20 metre tap, the tackle without the ball (both occurring at a time when Wigan were building pressure and lost it all) and the push to the face of Hiku (Whilst Bateman was going in to be a naughty person he was pushed first) had a pretty big impact. One of those penalties lead directly to a Wire try. I know you shouldn't blame decisions and Wigan no doubt benefitted from some poor decisions but they were important in relieving the pressure Wire were under.

On and off the field Wigan used to set standards.

We now drag teams down to our level, 1 out dull armwrestle.

We looked so slow and lacking in energy is beggered belief really. Even Bateman who still kept going until the very end and threw himself about looked leggy and missed a tackle he'd usually gobble up on Julian for their first try. I felt for Marshall who looked like he'd lost momentum and confidence from his spell out the team.

The other props should have a whip round for Tony Clubb tonight and pay for a relaxing couple of days away for him after he tried to carry them on his back! He's had a kidney removed two months back and still played with more energy and desire then any of the others. After picking up the last two weeks Nuuausala hit rock bottom tonight.

It was a poor performance without a doubt (Tony Clubb excepted whom I thought was superb).

I saw the game a little differently, I believe our problem, as it has been on many occasions was a lack of composure. Warrington, as many teams do, came with an obvious game plan of trying to unsettle us. Instead of just getting on with the game we fell for it hook, line and sinker and gave as much if not more than we got. We need to learn to just play the game, we needed to let Warrington give the penalties away and just concentrate on rugby. We didn't and it cost us.

For me, we didn't loose that game through a lack of skill or ability to attack and defend we lost that game because we weren't composed enough to win it.

Bateman was going for the pat on the head wind up, bit harsh on the resulting penalty but if you're gonna be a dick, 5h1t can happen.
TBH, I'm not sure Hiku lost the ball anyway, so its a bit of swings and roundabouts.
The game was tight, that's about it, too much time spent wrestling and rolling about on the floor for it to be entertaining, but Wigin always looked like they had the win in them, till it was too late.

Same old boring rugby yet again, when oh when are they going to invest in an attacking coach because my season ticket won't be renewed unless we do.

Looked like less than 10.000 there for the big one that used to attract 20.000 plus.

Not surprising seeing the awful rugby from both teams.
