Reeling from watching Saints win the GF again i thought a follow up to the 'best moments' thread was in order.

1998 Challenge Cup final...... say no more

The Ben Flower incident. Completely ruined a game i thought we were nailed on to win.

St Helens, Leeds and Wakefield defeats although they were completely depleted sides we fielded.

Take your pick of the last 3 years results under the Lam regime

Announcing we were leaving Central Park

Jason Robinson leaving, he was and still is my favourite all time player.


Not relating to Wigan but Ryan Hall scoring a perfectly sound try against Australia in the dying minutes and the Aussie video ref coming up with the most ridiculous reason to not allow it. That still really winds me up.

Was it not Ryan Hall?

Yes it was. Silly me. McGilvarry was getting all the plaudits from the Aussie press. Got my wires crossed. :- Edited

Thought I'd missed another one for a minute :lol:

Losing to Salford in 96. Couldn't get my head around not going to wembley.

You're right about Flower, and we should still have won it.

This whole season has been a particularly new low for me, genuinely the least enjoyable season I’ve ever had watching Wigan. Sadly it’s not only Wigan that are setting the standards low, the whole league has been boring. I used to get excited and look forward to watch Wigan games live and any and all games that were shown on tv that week, now I will sometimes even forget one is on.

Peter Norbury, Mike Nolan, Eric Hughes, Doc Murray, Paul Koloi, Shem Tatupu, Ian Sherratt, Brett Goldspink. I think this was the last era we had the last significant drop off across the entire club.

I've always wondered why on earth Eric Hughes was appointed. A baffling one.

Going way back in the past again, to 1966 when we got battered by Saints at Wembley. Our hooker Colin Clarke was suspended and this was the time of contested scrums, so Wigan literally never had the ball. That clever Mr Murphy also utilised some very negative tactics to keep Saints in possession. If I remember right it was made even worse because we’d sold our other hooker , Bill Sayer to Saints not long before. There’s been worse performances since, I’m sure, but when you’re only 9 it’s very difficult to put these things in perspective, which is perhaps why, after all these years, it still sticks in my craw.

The mid/late seventies without a shadow of doubt!

No winning of trophies, poor signings, numerous coaches, relegation and a decline in attendances to as low as 2,500

Hope the club never declines to that level again!
