I think we showed a lot of guts and spirit tonight, especially in the first half. The last 20 was bitterly dissaponting, their first 2 tries came in the set immediately after we had bombed a very good try scoring opportunity. They were clinical and take nothing away from Wigan some of the tries they scored were quality and their kick pressure was excellent tonight. The difference in teams largely was confidence and the kicking games were also world's apart, we can't allow teams 10m every tackle it gives far too big an opportunity to cause us problems on their last play if they complete their sets.

Wigan thoroughly deserved the win, if we play like that for the rest of the season (but with an actual kicking game) we could pick up a few more vital wins. I really don't see what the coaches are doing to turn this around they aren't instilling belief or resilience that's for sure.

Interestingly enough, after reading the Facebook Warrington page, the most liked posts are the ones putting the blame on individual mistakes and not Powell. This is a change in tide. Past 2 weeks people have been more critical of Powell, but this has changed tonight. Lots of positives coming from there although obvious dissapointment over the 2nd half performance.

Most liked comments were more aligned to Uncle Ricos post, than the depressing cauldron of despair on here.

Good post. I think you'll agree that there were definite signs of improvement, but it's hard to instil confidence when we've lost so many. I think tonight's game will be a turning point. I said that after the Catalans game, but I really think tonight will give us a lift.

I don't think I've seen a more useless article on the wing since Ronnie Kettlewell.
If he does play on Thursday, I'll be watching in true 1970'Doctor Who style..... behind the settee, with my fingers over my eyes.

And to think, we've shifted Lineham and Charnley aside, to accommodate him..... Double shudders


It's not the best of signings, I agree, and a downgrade on the two you mention. Perhaps he's a cheap squad filler?

Josh charnley you say. Is that the same josh charnley who is The 2nd highest try scorer for warrington wolves in 2022 with 10 tries. The same josh charnley who is apparently a bad apple dispite scoring 10 tries for us this season before being dropped

(Sarcasm really doesn't work on a forum does it)
(That's not a dig on the posters here. I agree with them and hope they don't take the sarcastic post as something against them which is not the case.)

We're beating Toulouse next week. And we'll have another win at least by the end of the season.

Next year, with Powell in charge, we will be top 5. Mark my post if you like.

Anyone disagree.


How much does the club pay you.

Signs of improvement. Perhaps after KP or was it KF had a word with the players last week.
Perhaps be could be the new coach?
Just a joke. No personal insults please...

They pay me not to go to the games. That's my price.

All good with you Wolfhall. We disagree with a lot of things but you're a good poster imo.

If people are friendly with me, even if we disagree, I'm friendly back.

I hope you're right, next week is absolutely massive for the club. We need the same again but more resilient in defence and far more respectful of field position, I'm sick of seeing a static defensive line from us this season, I called their try (third?) once field had broken our line, the left edge retreated whilst the middle didn't in effect we broke our own line, the scramble was good to close down one side but they scored going all the way back over again anyway after Holmes failed to wrap the ball tackling French. A little too much of the offload from wigan this evening for me, some of it was top quality enterprising Wigan play and unfortunately some of it slack defending.

I thought the knock on call against Ashton after french had pulled the ball out was really harsh, should have been our ball for a French knock on IMO, then they score. These are the breaks we aren't getting at all but we also need to be better at dealing with hardship the confidence is so fragile at the minute. We badly need an organising half, I like stef and Williams but neither of them are it. Our tactical kicking game is very 1 dimensional IMO, nowhere near enterprising enough.
