Thought Sarginson had a great game, especially in defence. That first half he made some great one on one clattering tackles when the game was very much in the balance.

Great to see what competition for places did for the likes of Sarginson and Bullock. We always get effort from Sarge but he was determined, concentrated and made sure to feed his winger like Hankinson has been doing. Bullock was barnstorming and had clearly been fired up by being dropped. That’s the Joe Bullock we could have on a regular basis with some competition for his place.

It was great to see Bullock busting tackles ! Long time since a Wigan coach has encouraged our props to stay on their feet and make some breaks.

Forwards running with the ball :o how dare they not just conserve energy for tackling.

I thought Hardaker was very strong again. Now the combinations are starting to click, he looks to be getting the type of ball he needs to thrive.

And as others have said, Powell has been a revelation of late. Both he and Lam deserve a lot of credit as it’s clearly something that has been worked on. Brining Peet back also appears to have been a master stroke.

My thoughts with Wane watching the players carried the ball with legs pumping and totally opposite to what Wane wanted and go down with a quick play the ball.

I think there is a time and a place for both tactics in the season and during the course of a single match depending on how it is affecting momentum and yards.

My criticism of Wane was that he simply encouraged the drop find frontbabd quick ptb throughout his time at Wigan.

Clearly this style brought success but was one of the main reason we were fairly full to watch also.
Unofficially the most boring poster on Cherry and White.

I re-watched the game last night on Wigan TV. A few thoughts:

1. Contrary to the usual scenario, where I reluctantly admit that the ref was actually rather better than I'd thought at the game, this was a match where the reverse definitely applied. Just how many forward apsses went unpumished? And they seemed to be mostly (although not entirely) to Wigan's benefit. I think it's fair to say there were question-marks over passes in the build-up to at least three of our tries. The pass from Sarge for Marshall's first looked way forward.

2. Regardless of the recent relatively good form. HRK were really poor, let's be right. Just look at the amount of ball we handed to them, and which fortunately they almost always did nothing with. And as for that hole a mile wide they let George Williams stroll through...

3. I can only echo the praise for the much improved performances of Powell, Partington, Navarette, Bullock. The yellow card was a tad harsh, Sadly it seems he gave himself up by apologising.

4. Attack certainly much improved, but still trying to crash over from dummy-half too often, Powell and Tommy.

The decision to give us the ball after the high kick before our 2nd try was a shocker. Couple of 50/50 forward passes as well - we couldn't complain about not getting the decisions on Friday.
