How can losing in a final be worse than losing in a semi final?
A semi final defeat is just sickening...a final day out is that win or lose.


Because you're that much closer to glory. And I hate losing, and seeing another team win.

If I had the hypothetical hindsight choice of losing in a semi or a final, I'd choose the semi every time. Less heartbreak.

There is more money in it for the club when we reach finals. Our directors are as keen - or possibly keener, since they've put so much of their own money in - than us average fans to see the Wire win, but the extra prize money from reaching the final isn't half useful.

I honestly cannot fathom that reasoning.
Imagine being a Salford or Wakefield fan without a visit to follow your team to Wembley in generations.

In 2009 I didn't care what the result was...singing 'Abide With Me'...wow.
It was one of the best moments of my life....as it was a generation before in 1990.

I honestly can't fathom yours.

I want Warrington to be winning trophies. I haven't enjoyed a trip to Wembley or Old Trafford in 7 years . . .

It's not the taking part that counts. It's winning.

And you've got to make the final to win the bloody thing!! You'd rather loose in a semi final because you don't think we'd win? What an utterly ridiculous comment.

What reasoning can you not fathom? Posters were saying they'd rather lose in semi-finals. I'm merely adding ANOTHER reason ( on top of wanting to win trophies ) for wanting to reach finals. Don't you think that the money is important?

For me f we lose the semi against Hull, it won't be as bad as losing to Saints in the final.


Losing to Hull in the semi would be almost as bad as Saints losing to Halifax. Hull are a joke, a shambles of a side.

I said in hindsight. As in, if you lost the final and could go back in time.

I'm obviously not saying I'd want to lose semi-finals.

I'm desperate for Warrington to win every game.

Speaking of prize money ,what can Saints look forward to this year for finishing top ? Hasn't it been increased ?
