The big thing for me is that Powell is vastly improved going forward. He is posing a threat by sniping at the line before bringing players on. He looks like a new signing these last few games.

Great win and it’s encouraging that we are getting a few % better every week. We also look really energised and fresh which is a little surprising if anything.

We need to keep up the momentum now. A loss next week wouldn’t be a disaster but if we at least run them close it’ll just sow a seed of doubt. We all know Saints love a collapse come the end of summer.

4th should be an absolute minimum target now but really we need to focus on 3rd. That away game at Hull on 3rd August is already shaping up to be a tasty one.


Yes, and aren't we all pleased that they've got rid of that Mickey Mouse system they had last year? Now every position on the ladder is worth fighting for.

I agree that all need next week is a competitive performance, and it looks like we can produce that now. We now have a genuine threat on both flanks, and a solidifying defence, I think we have enough to cause Saints real problems, and I didn't think that a few weeks ago.

Terrific game and terrific entertainment. The sort of rugby that first got me into the sport. Tigerish defence, even when down to 12 men and a genuine threat on both sides of the pitch. There's life in this season yet!

Got to give special mention to Joe Bullock. After his initial mistake he really showed what he is capable of. I think we sometimes forget that this is his first season at this level. If he can continue the form he showed tonight we have the makings of a top drawer front rower.

An all round great team performance with moments of absolute brilliance. More of the same please!

Another win and another superb performance. We’ve steadily progressed and improved over the last 6wks or so and we look like a complete new team. Powell, Bullock and TL who have come in for a lot of criticism, look like new players. Zak Hardaker is coming into his own, Marshall is playing out of his skin. I could wax lyrical about most of the squad at present which is remarkable from what I and some others were commenting a mere 6wks ago.

The real acid test for me though is Saints. The last few weeks indicate it’s going to be closer than the Good Friday debacle but Saints are also high on confidence. I can’t say I expect a win but you certainly can’t rule it out.

Maybe an unpopular opinion but we weren’t that far off Saints on Good Friday (at least not as far as the score suggested). I watched the game back and we had a really good dig, but just leaked too many soft tries.

6 tries to 2 and 4 of theirs we gifted them on a plate. If we play like we did last night we will definitely give them a good run for their money.

Feeling much better than 2 months ago! Wigan now outright third favourites for the GF - 7/1.
22 - 19 - 4

Warrington led 16-2 in Saturday's Grand Final, but their joy was short-lived as Wigan roared back to win the Super League title and extend the Wire's 58-year wait to be champions

Greenwood may or may not be back this year but if he is, Farrell 100% keeps his place at left second row.

Fixtures looking good for us, Hull FC week after there semi. And Wire week before Wembley should they get there.
RICHARDS IS SUPERMAN!!!!

I think one key thing from the fans' perspective is that it was good to watch, and not just when we were 40-odd points ahead, the attack looked very sharp early in the game. Like others, we came off buzzing from the simple fact of being completely entertained for the first time in god knows when.

It looks like the attacking style we were promised in the off-season has finally arrived, and that's great because most of us had given up on it ever happening.

Also, kudos to the club for installing a big screen that you can actually see from the South Stand.

Great rugby in both scores and defence. The cheers were as almost as good when down to 12 they tackled out a set as when a try was scored. A massive effort not to concede when down to 12 and it was penalty, penalty, scrum all going against us.
Showed the effort and will to win.

Agree 100%.
Great after the game in the pub where we all said how much we enjoyed it.
We seemed full of energy and the players gave it all throughout the 80 minutes.
Special mentions for Bullock & Partington for me but every player played well.
