Is this the turning point to better form or is it a false start?

It seems hard to argue that a win at in form Salford could not be down to anything but a good performance by Wigan.

Just back in the car and happy with that. It was a weird game because fir the first 20 mins we didn’t even look second best but then we blitzed three try’s to go 18–6 up but then fell apart either side of half time to go behind. I thought we’d collapse but that left edge was sensational in getting control back and whilst we looked a bit nervy closing it out, we did it comfortably enough.

Williams scored a hatrick and was as Williams like as Williams can be. Moments of brilliance mixed with errors a 12 year old would squirm at. I thought Gildart grew a leg having Burgess alongside him and it was pleasing to see Burgess has lost no pace (looked to have gained some of anything). We’re still desperate for a couple of props with Clubb and Navarette struggling from the off but the bench lads of Flower, Bullock and Hamlin really turned it.

Sounded a couple of great tries finished off by George, they managed to see the game out well which is a good sign when you haven’t won for a while. Onwards and upwards.

no one can argue with that. Salford are a very good team this year so fair play to the lads.

A couple of great trys second half combined with a disciplined defence won us that game today. I think we only gave one penalty away second half and that was almost on full time. In past games we've piggy backed teams up field with silly penalties , today was a vast improvement

Location: Wigan , but smart enough to support leigh
The attendance looks to be worrying , when wigan where at the bottom and having a bad time years ago , i wonder what the attendance would have been back then? I seem to remember then being a lot higher , infact when Wigan where having a bad time previously the fans became like an extra man, which was good to see from a neutrals point of view after seeing lots of bandwagon jumpers watching them win the challenge cup every year.

There’s more going on at Wigan currently which is turning the fans off then back in those days and I don’t think anybody thinks we’re quite at the level of being in serious danger just yet. I don’t think the price at £27 would’ve got too many 50/50 fans out the armchair today either.

In 2006 the crowds starting to flock in once we hit rock bottom and were looking dead and buried and we’re far from that point at the moment.
