A work collegue, who comes from over the other side of billinge hill. Asked me recently were Wigan got all their brasso from, When I enquired what for he told me that with all the silver - ware now at St.Helens the would need to take all the brasso they can, (including the stuff Wigan dont need). My reply was that if St.Helens were involved in the brinksmat bullion raid they still would'nt have enough silver to match that of Wigan. I don't know if that upset him or not but he went back into his shell for a while. WHAT do you all think

I think that they are both good rugby teams, always have been. They are the top two Lancashire teams and should be prized as such. I have connections on both sides, even though I don't have any interest in rugby, and I can assure you that when Wigan was doing well, and ended up at Wembley, there were coaches went from St.Helens to watch the match. You don't hear the same sort of childish remarks coming from the St.Helens rugby fans, they just seem to enjoy the game. Then again, I speak as a neutral because I have no interest.

I don't think you follow the game very closely Diva, and you won't get any bets on now since they got their hands on it at about 4.45 this afternoon.

Marken,im so dizzy. I have had it on the television today has well. I dont follow rugby like i used too(not this season anyway.)I feel a right plonker now. To be honest i thought that it was a match to get to the final. I have not been listening have i?It was at Twickenham has well, i knew that, so why did it not click with me?
Thats what Geoff meant when he said"Congratulations to the Saints"
