Oh behave. I bet you was bricking it behind your TV screen when French went down after knocking on, lose him and its curtains for Wigans season.


They said that about Field. But we've been without him for weeks now, and yet last night we were still able to score at will against your lot, who were playing out of their skins, and still didn't win.

Coming off the back of a defeat against Warrington in SL and missing two massive players in Coote & Abdul. Hardly played out of our skins.

Wigan are arguably better with just French playing, I think sometimes the two of Field and French playing together doesn’t work. French has gone to a different level this season and there’s no shame on saying that he makes the world of difference to that team. Saying that, in 165 mins of us playing Wigan this season, French has only made one break but how frustrating being a fan of Rovers that it was the one break that lost us the match.

Oh, so you can claim your missing players as having an effect on your teams performance but we can't? We have to accept that having one of our star (and likely marquee) players out makes us a better team overall? Baring in mind we are missing the majority of our starting pack also.

Ye that seems like a fair and balanced view. About as balances as all the shouts of "forward" were last night.

It’s actually a big compliment to French, but read how you like.

And yes, we’re a far better team with Coote & Abdul, in fact, we beat you last time out with those two and Field playing.

You will look better as a team with Coote and Abdull, obviously i agree with that. Any team players of that calibre missing will look better with them playing. So would we with all the players we have missing.

I do disagree with your opinion of us playing better with just French though, i think having just one of the two on the field at any one time paints a larger taget on that players back, and when we have played a team in recent weeks that has aimed for that target and nullified the threat of French we have struggled. Having both (in attacking roles, not hiding French away on the wing where he was rarely seeing the ball) gives us many more options and when one is getting pinned down the other will typically get more freedom. I believe the Leigh game was a window into what we could see with both fit.

I think you are putting too much into your win against us. I admit you were the better team by far on that day and fully deserved the win, but it needs more context than that. It was literally the first game of the season, where teams are still not match fit and are still trying and feeling out new combo's / tactics / structures so the games are often more of a toss up. Not to mention we had quite a rocky start to the season. But you got the 2 points and that is all that matters at the end of the day.

If i am honest, you were probably the better team overall last night also, but that doesn't put points on the league table.

Not sure how it ‘doesn’t work at times’ when Field and French both play. It was some highlights reel last season. This season they played 60 mins of one game at 1 and 6 and it looked mouthwatering in all honesty and we’ll see how it goes. The bleating some fans do about missing players is staggering. Wigan have a good few out (not bothered counting) but we just crack on with things.

As a different debate - it seemed to me last night that Peat made a couple of tactical switches - Farrell looked to be running out wider than recently, even without the ball his lead runs were aimed more towards the sideline that back into the centre. Also in the second half Shorrocks was going more into second receiver (stand-off) than Hampshire who was pushed out wider - this seemed to happen more as the game went on - I wonder if this ws a deliberate switch as Hapmshire is more of a runner and being out wider might give him a bit more space.

That’s what happens when you have no pack. One game plan, give it to French or Field and hope for the best.

A long time ago I used to coach an under 12s union team. I had a player who was so much quicker than everyone else. He was rapid. I just told the players to get the ball to him. We walloped everyone until eventually I came up against a team that had a decent manager and then we lost. Peet is me back then. No clue at all


I'm glad you no longer coach with a mentality like that, what are the other kids going to learn or even improve on if that is your overall plan, at junior level it is about developing players and not a win at all costs

I actually had no problems with the first Hall try, he had the ball gripped in his hand, as he was going over the side lines he put the ball down with his hand gripped on the side of the ball, there didnt appear to be any kind of bobble or bounce that I could see, the second one he clearly dropped it as you could see from the angle from the opposite side of the field, he had to use his other hand to put the ball down, plus shaking your head when putting it down just says all that needs to be said

Farrell pass for Miski’s try in the last minute was sublime.
