Not a good look. Chris Chester referrred to "naughty stuff" in his press conference ,
suggesting it was not an isolated incident.

I think this Maguire legacy has no place in the game, it can end careers.

Don't expect any different from Wigan though do we. If they can't win games they will try and either cheat salary cap or play dirty.

Completely agree yet it happened numerous times throughout the game??? Is this drilled into the Wigan players? The Reece Lyne one was a joke. Sort it out.

Oh lovely. Were being treated to sanctimony yet again after a Wigan loss...

So I suppose that's why St Helens, Hull, London, Huddersfield, Warrington and Cas all suffered through injuries during the game because it's the Wigan way to "cheat" when they're losing? Oh wait, no, they didnt. Guess you'll have to dribble some other poop because it doesn't back up.

If that's the example of a Cannonball tackle; tackling the knees at the right and angle from about half a metre away, then you might as well put up shop because that stuff happens every game. Saw it at least 5 times during the Saints Warrington game. The only difference is Digital stayed down. Good spot for a penalty kick I thought...

Good spot for a penalty kick? Have a word. You were at it all night regardless of field position. Joke of a comment.

Don’t get me wrong I’m honest enough to admit I’ll jump all over any Wigan indiscretions, but I can’t see anything wrong with that particular tackle. Am I missing something?

I can’t comment on the injuries as I didn’t go to the game but I don’t see a lot wrong with that one as it was behind the knees, think Fifita is making something out of nothing on that one.

Managed to play 80 minutes despite the tackle that could have ended his career. I am absolutely suggesting he was making it up because of the field position. Again, what's wrong which tacking at the knee in the direction it bends? You see it week in week out, or is it because it's Wigan that you have a problem?

Cas fans have some temerity too after having a player banned for elbowing a player and having someone sin binned last night for headbutting...

It's like a pantomime with you lot. The banter page tried drumming up some anti Wigan stuff with it and the majority of responses were that there was nothing in it.

Glad I’m not the only one who saw little wrong with that. “Could have ended his career” but plays the full game? I have to agree with a previous poster that it’s in a rather convenient location for a penalty and no other player, nor the referee, even picked up on it.

Attacks the knee where it bends and I saw that literally happen multiple times last night during the Warrington/Saints game, some from the side.

Some people really ought to get over themselves.

I don’t have a problem with Wigan, I have problem when any team continually attack the knees with the third man in. If this was an isolated incident I’d agree with you but it went on all game. The Lyne one was a shocker. If you seriously think Fifita was acting that out to get a penalty you need a head test.
