With the pace we have the kick behind is a weapon that should be used more, the chip could have been a kick deep for Burgess to chase, it is good to see players playing head up rather than follow a strict game plan.


Something that Blake Green used to do all the time! It’s a perfect play when we are 30/40 from our own line, struggling for yards and the opposition isn’t expecting it.

I can’t believe we don’t do more high kicks out wide to Burgess on the oppositions line either.

I'm struggling to see how turning over the ball about 30m from our line is relieving pressure. If they score there then we're only a score ahead and they have the momentum.

I get what you and JohnH are saying about creativity and giving players a bit of scope to try things though, and I was bloody bored under Wane. If it was a deeper kick for French to chase I'd be more understanding, Burgess isn't in the kind of form to be giving him a low percentage play to try IMO. We need to get the ball in French's hands more, in space ideally.


From memory I thought it was the 5th? But even so IMO the way Cas were flying off the line it was proving difficult just to get a kick away never mind get any depth on it (we were inside our own 20).
Whilst a brave play i think it was an ok option as turning the ball over with a scrum and a breather with a set defence may have been the better option than a rushed weak kick with the FB or wingers catching it on their 40 and possibly making it back to our 40 but with an unorganised defence.

The only thing wrong IMO is geaorge should have kicked it 10/15 yards further ahead and I'm sure Budgie would have made it and if he didn't the scrum would have been up past the 40

It wasn’t the last tackle. I remember thinking at the time Wane would kill him.

There are several players who developed at the club under Wane so of course some Wan's influence is still there. Lam has given licence to the players to express themselves in some parts of the field. The fact that Wigan's defence has improved of late and that the backs were running through brick walls again might actually be the influence of John Winder. Remember that he was retained to provide some continuity.

Lam’s biggest influence on an individual has been on Sam Powell. He’s so much better now he’s mixing his game up and isn’t predictable. I thought he was brilliant last night in his control of the game, with his defensive efforts being backed up by a lovely kicking game.

If you don't bother to go to the game when you live in the locality then you are not really a fan and therefore your views are invalid. It's simple.

The change in form coincided with Matty peet returning to the club as defense coach.

He is the future Wigan head coach
