I saw tonight as a big game. The chance to put 5 points between us and Cas in 4th place, now it's just the 1 point.

Didn’t get going second half really but still could’ve and should’ve won. The Cas crowd absolutely gave it to the ref all night which was ironic given Leuluai was adjudged held up at 4-0 when he 100% grounded it (stood right in line 10 metres away). Spoke to a Cas fan coming away who said Tony Clubb also grounded one at their end which was given held up. The Wigan players weren’t happy about that.

To think Child needed an escort off was amusing to say the least.

Both teams had a real dig. Both teams had the momentum at different points. Both had more than one opportunity to drop a goal, but Cas got it over eventually.
Some unusual decisions both ways - Willie Isa not binned for dangerous contact but Cook was with 10 to go, when losing a man hurts the most. Couple of Wigan tries chalked off but the reaction of the fans closest suggested they were.
Game could have gone either way at the end. Cas got lucky.

Cas fans on social media claiming they were screwed over by the ref all night made me chuckle. As NK says two good tries chalked off and the obstruction call at the end was harsh to say the least.

Not a fixture we normally have a lot of luck in. A shame but 4 out of 5 to come at home in the remaining fixtures.

Fair summary. I’m not one who is one eyed and calls everything Wigan’s way but I can say with 100% certainty that Leuluai grounded that ball at 4-0. The Tony Clubb one I was told was a try by a Cas fan but it was way to far to have any opinion of

Overall I felt Cas we’re value for the win just about. We did too much damage to ourselves.

Child giving decisions favouring the vocal home crowd shock. Weak.



Fair play to cas so many missing. Thought Paisley and Hamlin did okay for us.
RICHARDS IS SUPERMAN!!!!

Good to read a balanced and sensible perspective after reading some of the nonsense on Twitter. Congrats on the win, I wouldnt say you got lucky. The Cook sinbinning was harsh as well to be fair.

I wasn’t in a position to see either grounding.
Both teams come out with credit tonight I think. The game could have be won by either team in the last five minutes.
What I would say (although I’m biased) is that Wigan’s habit of conceding multiple penalties in a short period of time is clearly a problem. Cas’ momentum was on the back of silly and repeated unnecessary penalties and it resulted in 14 unanswered points.

I always reserve judgement on these kind of tackles. It’s really difficult to see things like undue pressure from the stands.
Looking forward to the Super 8s game - hoping we are at home as it’s one of my favourite fixtures of the season at Wheldon Road.
Both teams were in with a shot of winning at the end. Cas got lucky in terms of being the ones to get the ball actually to go between the sticks!

I mean if that were the case Isa would have been sent off and Tomkins wouldn't have been allowed to sin bin Cook :CRAZY:
