Definitely.

You lot are ungracious in defeat and ungracious in victory. The most detestable fans in the world of rugby.

Are we though? I think the internet/social media impression isn't going to be favourable because as your thread suggests the Saints/Wire banter/hatred is a big thing currently. As I posted in there it's because both sets of fans are scared to death of the other being successful. You certainly wouldn't hate a club that you don't see as a threat. You might have spats like with Catalans, but they are quickly forgotten. But if you actually meet Saints fans, most are exactly the same as Wire fans, good knowledgeable fans who respect the other teams and have a good time at games. If you're taking AS106 or whatever his name was as being Saints fans in general it's wrong. Same with Wire, we know you're not all like the Duck. The McManus spray at the referee wasn't classy I'll admit but bar that, what have you got to hate us for really?

The ungracious bit is ironic given how the Wire players reacted to winning the Cup final. They spent the day singing about Saints. I think both clubs are just remarkably similar. We had our run of success slightly earlier, but in 10-15 years when you've won 5 or 6 Super Leagues you'll be Saints in a blue kit. Once you do that your fans will get that sense of entitlement that will come across as unbearable to other supporters. But we're all the same and I think a lot of you need a walk through history to realise who the real enemy is.

i wont be CHEERING for wigan, as i could never bring myself to do that... even if they were playing the mother-in-law.

But i hope they win it over saints, who's fans this season have been abhorrent.

Saints v Cas in the final and Cas to win it with a try in the last minute from an American football like forward pass.


No you confused it’s Saints that do that.

Anyone but Wigan. I have to work with pie-eaters! Snide bunch of tossers, until they lose.
