Anyone think we could be playing a massive hustle? Come big game time we have an enitriely different gameplan, which we execute perfectly?








No, me neither...

Said that’s the plan at the game today



And I don’t believe it either but you never know :lol:

Dull as dishwater. One thing that stands out for me is that Gildart isn’t fit. I get maybe he doesn’t want his Wigan career ended by an injury but it’s not good for his own mental health to be playing.


I wouldn't worry about that. I doubt he even considers himself a Wigan player any more.

I'm hoping it's the case as we can't be as bad as we are playing, it's impossible to be that tosh with the ball.

Everything in attack is just so laboured. The passing across the line is unbelievably slow. If we went wing to wing, it would be half time by the time we’d got it across there. Players get the ball and look for runners and there’s nothing. It’s just so unorganised but there’s also very little off the cuff play. Harry Smith made a few scampers today and it was crying out for a couple of runners flooding through but there was absolutely zilch. On the flip side the defence is extremely well organised and teams are struggling to break us down. Nobody will get an easy game against us in the play offs IMO but unless their effort is off, I doubt we’ll out score many.

Great defence again and pretty clueless with the ball but we’ll at least make ourselves tough to beat in the coming weeks. Hardaker played well as did Halsall, Hastings, Havard and Faz for me. It was better from Bateman as well but still more in him.


How did young Smith perform?
Difficult to assess on the radio commentary if anyone played well.
Also unsure if defence was good or if Hull were really really poor?

Glimpses of real talent as usual but he just looks in three minds most of the time. I’d love to see him on the back of a dominant pack. I do think he’s been building recently and again today, he threatened with the ball but the whole side needs to wake up and help each other by offering themselves up in support.

I didn’t think Hull were that bad outside the first 20 mins (when both teams were dire). Any side with those big forwards will test you and Connor is always a threat. We scrambled well and looked really organised in defence. We just won’t get away with that first twenty against Saints or Wire though. We look like we will be absolutely knackered if we concede first because there’s just not the points in the team to chase.

We’ll be awkward for any team in the play offs though. It won’t be pretty but we could snag a win or two.

Smith was OK we scored off two kicks we look so together defending but like strangers with the ball.
To be fair to Smith we don't leave bodies on the floor or win the ruck often enough to give him short numbers to play against. He scampered a few times today with runners as a foyle or pass option it would make things easier. They don't look like they spend anytime together.

He kicked in behind Farimo well in that second half as well. He was knackered early in that second half, so he did a good job on him.

Thanks for the feedback NK
I think Smith will pull through but at the moment with Hastings being so dominant I’m just hoping he’s still in his shell so to speak. I just wish he’d put his marker on the game and rollocks to Hastings.

I said earlier in the season every game is an arm wrestle and no team can win every arm wrestle.
