Hi all Wigan fan here in peace! i think the game was lost by the decision to take a kick from the half way line with 7 minutes left! You do not have a kicker capable in your team to kick from that distance! you should blame your manager for not kicking for the corner and try to score a try Lets hope you don't start next season by losing 10 out of your last 15 games like this season or as Phil Clarke said you will get relegated next season if you lose so many games :READING:

The error would have been to try and kick for touch. More than likely we would have turned the ball over during that set of tackles and we would all be cursing how we let an easy option to take it to golden point go away.

Anyway what happened to that debate about "we need a kicker"...

Jesus Christ, really? It was pathetically negative, no hindsight needed.

And Ratchford has developed into a great kicker. Obvious that the halfway life isn't his range.

This issue lies with Price and his negative tactics, every opportunity to take the two we go for it rather then going with the momentum of the game. I’m for going for the 2 at the right time e.g. the scores at 0-0 at the start of a game. However, given the fact we needed to WIN the game with 7 minutes to play, we should of taken ‘the bull by the horns’ and tried to notch a try.

Was it the wrong decision or just a poor kick? IMO a professional player who has kicking duties should be able to at least get the ball dead from there. That was the real mistake. I've seen Ratchford put kick offs out on the full on that pitch, so to not even reach the in goal was some error. Kick it relatively quickly to save the clock and get it dead. Thought there was some quality Dick Dastardly and Mutley going on there too with Hill trying to distract Kendall and Ratchford sniggering and trying to pinch a few metres.

It was a very poor kick, at least 10 yards short.

Very poor decision. I didn't have any faith in Ratch having the range for that one, the coach should be well aware of this too. Negative and defeatist decision
