Even the Saints posters believe Wigan will win, as they're blaming the referee with a week to go before the game.

I thought Briers’ “insights” were surprisingly basic, compared to other coaches that have been on Sky.
Just my opinions unless it's a FACT, in which case it's a fact.

He may well be a fan but I'd suggest that he's not on the programme as a high profile celebrity fan a la Johnny Vegas he's on there as a coach of a rival team

Selected as the latter, came across more as the former :wink:

Seriously though, if he's going to progress as a coach, probably time to try his luck elsewhere. I think both Warrington and Briers would probably benefit.

You could well be right I don't think that I'm alone but I'm not quite sure what Briers and the back up coaching staff contribute. Are they sidelined by Price or very much part of the problem.

I'm not suggesting for one minute that Wigan and Saints don't deserve to be in the final both very professional performances against teams that couldn't knock them out of their stride.

I just wish Briers seemed a little disappointed that we weren't involved and I didn't expect the whole sackcloth and ashes routine

Remember at the start of the season how Anthony Gelling supposedly had the option of going back to Wigan, but he turned them down to join us, and Karl Fitzpatrick expected us to do a "clean sweep" over Wigan this season. They beat us home and away and are in the Grand Final.

I suggest Mr Fitzpatrick keeps his fat gob shut, and keeps the wolf costume under lock and key, until an hour before kick off.
He's turning our club into a laughing stock

I wonder if he used to chat poop like this as a player.

"Coach, this year I expect myself to beat Radlinski/Wellens for the GB jersey, and also outplay Darren Lockyer in the internationals"

Karl Harrison: "ave you bin fooken smorkin summat or wot??"

Did he used to chat poop as a player??? He was the ultimate gob sh oite on the pitch. Really didn't like him as a player and becoming the CEO we always knew he would be. Has to go, he's atrocious.

That last Wigan v Saints game was an absolute cracker, hopefully, the GF will be likewise with Wigan again coming out on top. Can't wait for McManus, the thunderbird puppet, to go into meltdown after an ungracious diatribe in his local press.

Sad thing is on paper we should be there but games are not won on paper so it must be something else ........



On paper you are still 3rd best
