So after seeing our first squad back in action for the first time today what are peoples thoughts on the game. Felt good to finally get a result at LSV pre season..

Gabe Hamlin.. Wow didn't he impress on debut..hard running, hard hitting and can score a try..impressed and hopefully see a lot more of him through the seaon

Romain Naverrette...Also impressed put in some big hits and made some decent yardage

Sam Tomkins...Looking great in attack, kicking goals and scored a Try himself

A few errors but can expect with them blowing the cobwebs off....Maybe all is not as bad as people are making out

A few impressive performances in poor conditions. Hamlin the stand out for me but Sam was good too. We looked far more effective when he went into the halves though and it seems Escaré still has great pace which is a relief. FNP ran properly as did TT and Flower was strong on his return.
Not reading a lot into it in those conditions but happy to win a game we often lose in preseason. Lots to be positive about.

You sense a bit more comepetition for places in the prop positions will maybe pull some better performances from the likes of FPN and Tautai. I thought FPN looked in the best shape physically that he has in his time at Wigan (maybe it was the black kit) and it was a solid performance to start with.

Good preseason game frpm both teams, our team has to gel proper though. Wigan looked good most of the game, cobwebs still need blowing off.

expected the scoreline to be what it was tbh. still, liked what i saw from Leigh, onwards and upwards for both teams.

oh, one troll on our page doesn't think much of your team today??

A good competitive pre-season game, at last, between these two teams. Team spirit looked good for Wigan, by the way they celebrated their scores. As for the result, which probably doesn't mean a lot, the better team won, by just abut the right margin.

Your troll isn't totally on the money. There've been worse, but not by much.

Wigan have got a lot to do this season to make up for last season's shame.

Difficult to judge these pre season games given the number of changes we made and the poor conditions.

Positives:
- We got the win
- It doesn't look like we picked up any lasting injuries
- Our play kicking game was much improved
- Escare, Flower and Shorrocks picked up where they left off
- Hamlin looked a real handful

Negatives:
- We shouldn't really be needing a late try to put a Championship team away
- Gildart bombing a try with poor centre play

Can’t read too much into pre season friendlies granted and Leigh were a half decent SL side last season don’t forget but I still feel we should have won by a lot more.

As per Crunchers comment, this team still has a lot to do to make up for last season. I’m not at all confident in the squad.

Glad to hear Hamlin and Navarette had a good run out
RIP Leon Walker

Would be great if these 2 could put pressure on the “starters”

4 out of Hamlin, Tautai, Flower, Clubb, Sutton, FPN, Naverette, Field standards should pick up with the competition for places.
RICHARDS IS SUPERMAN!!!!
