offloading the ball didnt stop cas from stuffing you 3 times this season, combined score of 119 - 34?


Cas have been the best team in the competition by a country mile - until the games that matter.

That's an issue for Cas, whether they like to admit it or not.

I remember the Zimbabwean batsman Graeme Hick who regularly flayed bowlers to all parts until he played test cricket, when it got too tough for him. It was because of him that the term 'flat track bully' came into usage.

Cas are the 'flat track bullies' of Rugby League!

The Salford team of around 67 - 74 was similar. Great individual talents in Watkins, Fielden, Richards, Nash they were record points scorers, a joy to watch and were Champions a couple of times in the first past the post system. Sadly they always came unstuck in the big cup games (ironically to Cas amongst others on several occasions).

Hahahaha aaah funny. I prefer the statistic of championship trophies lifted in 2017:

Wigan 1 (World)
Cas 0
21 - 19 - 4

Warrington led 16-2 in Saturday's Grand Final, but their joy was short-lived as Wigan roared back to win the Super League title and extend the Wire's 58-year wait to be champions

Zero Red Cards

Seven Yellow Cards (lower end of the league)

Eighth in the list of penalties conceded (below Cas)

Zero members of our squad at the start of 2017 caught taking drugs (2 from Cas)

1 major trophy (Cas won a new tray for the tea lady to bring out the brews on)

but 75% more than cas

5% less penalties, well done for not getting caught!

Zero members of our squad at the start of 2017 caught taking drugs (2 from Cas)

0 from Cas at the start of 2017 and only 1 during the season Chase was with Widnes

1 major trophy (Cas won a new tray for the tea lady to bring out the brews on)

1 trophy won by beating 1 team as compared to 1 'tea tray' won by winning 25 of 30 superleague games


lets @cherry pick' a few more statistics

29% more tries than the 'mighty' wigan
67%more goals
38% more try assists
31% more tackle busts
32% more clean breaks
points difference of 429 compared to your massive 23
