I didn’t think we stood a chance today… but for some reason I still stayed up into the small hours to listen to the game….

I’m glad I did

When I saw that both Fifita and Hood were missing I was even more convinced that we were in for a hiding but I can honestly say that we didn't miss them....every other player stepped up to the mark and we bossed that game for 75 minutes and I thought our pack were outstanding against one of the strongest packs in SuperLeague :CLAP: :CLAP:


Exactly this.
I was the same. Hoping for a decent performance but, unlikely to win and then, with Fifita and Hood missing, I really did fear the worst.
Every one of our forwards lifted their game and were 9/10 or 10/10, with Whitbread something like 13/10, wow.

The defensive stint in the 2nd half was superb, with a restart and penalty, plus repeat set for them but, we kept them out and then went up the other end and scored, brilliant.

Great performance from 1 -17 and a fully deserved and very welcome 2 points GET IN !!!!!

The bit about Crowther walking home - doesn't that sum up our game? Imagine staying that about a Premier League footballer! Well done on the win by the way...


Depends how far away he lives. I don't actually know. He could have been heading for Starbucks.
I get what you are saying but it was sunny and didn't seem unhappy about it.

It was a fantastic performance by a team who simply wanted it more than their opposition today.

We were playing for survival and I think despite what WP says all but assured that yesterday which is fantastic.

Wigan were off form but it was Trinity’s excellent game plan and execution of it which caused this. They totally frustrated the Wigan team which spilled over into some poor discipline from them at times.

Trinity totally neutralised the key threats and strangled their creativity.

The main game plan for Wigan seemed to be run round like headless chickens then give it to Field or French and expect them to create a bit of magic.

Arguably yesterday in my opinion was one of the best displays I’ve seen at Belle Vue in some time.

Great result for the club, it also means Wigan will be out to set the record straight vs Toulouse next up which can only be a positive too.

Finally it hopefully gives any players we are looking to recruit/retain for 2023 some confidence to sign up so we can start putting together a competitive squad moving forward.
Unofficially the most boring poster on Cherry and White.

What, like Miller and Lino getting in each other's way ?? :roll: :roll:


No! Not quite as intimate as Miller Lino. :)

More in the sense that I think the game was a bit too fast for Big Dave, and that he would have slowed it down somewhat. It was a very fast paced game for our forwards who handled the weather conditions perfectly.

Well said wrencat, sums the game up pefectly. :CLAP:
Thought that was the best performance for a long time - even better than Cas - even though we've waited light years to beat them! Given that it was so hot and the Pies who are probably the form team in SL.
TBH, we should have now beaten the top two in the league at Belle Vue, but hey-ho!
Also a big shout-out to Lee Gaskill, who has been great at centre.
Did read some(one) on here saying that he'd get taken to the cleaners in the game..... Didn't see that happen either......

I think what summed Wigan up on the day was not so much a lack of effort but a lack of control if that makes sense. I though the big forward Shorrocks?? was awesome but it was unusually French and Field who failed.

I haven't looked yet but I'm pretty certain the Murphy try came from Field doing a bit of casual show boating, and at that point Wigan were still in it. Might be wrong on that but if I'm correct it served him right.

Over all I was impressed with Wigan, more so than Saints. Mainly because Wigan are actually a fairly ordinary side minus French, Field and a few who were missing, but they still played to the end.
