Quite a lot to choose from - and I know many will choose the 38-6 thrashing of the (now Champions) Leeds,
but mine was actually this;

Wakefield 24 - Salford 22

12 - 22 Down with 10 minutes on the clock we looked out of it, but 2 late tries saw us pinch the points.
Sam Williams superb touchline kick and Reece Lynes late tackle on Murdoch-Masila made it an 'interesting' end to the game.

I remember leaving the game feeling really optimistic about the rest of the season - the lads 'never say die' attitude
really impressed me.

I'd go with that one as well. Went from the depths of despair to the dizzy heights in the space of 80 minutes. I'd always hoped we'd do well this year but this game confirmed with the spirit and attitude the lads showed that we would do well.

Top three for me would be:

Salford away in the league,
the battering of the now champions at home as it was such a dominant display, and
nilling Wigan again for the second time in two seasons.

Salford away pips the others as for me Batch sliding over to seal the win was the moment of the season.

Having not attended away at Wigan, and it must have been fantastic to be there , will go with Leeds home.
That's the win in the 8's

Salford at home for the finish.

Leeds at home in the 8s

Enjoyed stuffing Widnes as Magic as well, Chase setting us up nicely for the final try

There can't be many teams who've nilled Wigan on consecutive seasons can there?

Performance wise, beating Leeds 38-6 in the Super 8s. Atmosphere wise, the Thursday night 24-25 game against Cas.
Even Custer couldn't muster a stampede like this.

Favourite game we won : Huddersfield - a very good game which either team could have won with BJB scoring in the final minutes to draw the game and Williams converting for the win

Favourite game we lost: Opening game vs Hull FC - a close, wet, and muddy game which reminded me of proper winter rugby

Most comprehensive victory: either Leeds or Wigan in the Super 8s, these were both full 80min performances where we totally stopped the opposition from playing. The forwards were dominant and the backs were on fire in both games

Special mention: away at Wigan for coming back from a large deficit to hammer them by the end
Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.
