Wigan Warriors !!!

Started by: GOLDEN BEAR (4716) 

I see that Zac Hardaker is spouting a load of crap about being all alone in Wigan and his young family were a zillion miles away in **HUDDERSFIELD not exactly other side of the planet is it??? Then has the cheek to say " He's done nothing wrong """Also he wanted away 12 months ago , his comments in the past did not say that ,good riddance if that's how he feel's about Wigan after what they did for him !!!

ON another front i notice we slipped up badly at that place above 32-22 not a good place to be in mentally for the re-match in a fortnight's time is it ??? All i have to say is that i am disappointed we could have gone top over the saints ,chance sore missed

What was the reason for turning out such a weakened side? Not fair on the speccies that travel away.

Have to agree completely it is a disgrace and that's only the first of 6 yes six away games ,no fixture for the DW ??????????? GB
Similar with United they expect fans to pay thro the nose for petrol increase yet turn in crap displays like these .......NO ON ! ........GB

It’s been done many times…we were very poor in defence down the left side…was disappointed with Willy Isa’s discipline considering he was captain of so many youngsters …to me he brings nothing to the team

TBF the kids did ok, and as Whups says it did nearly work
ISA was anonimous for most of the game.

So are they going to rest them all again next week for the trip to Hull? I agree they did OK but is it not fairer to introduce the young ones one at a time into an established team? For example would it not be an easier introduction for an 18 year old half back if Farrell, Bateman and Smithies were in front of him? Remember Murphy and Karalius?

What did on Thursday night and what St Helens did a week or so back in playing weaken teams is unfair on supporters as they pay money to see a good team turned out, especially those who go to away games.

Wigan even played two young players who were not in the pre match 21 team selection which I understood was not allowed to be changed after being announced to the media.

As for Hardacre, his behaviour and his going to Leeds stinks of Gary Hethington putting a word or two in his ear!

When I watch Wigan, I expect the club to played the strongest team barring injuries and suspensions.

If they do rest a few next week there will be some going into a final not having played for three weeks. That cannot make sense. If players get injured so be it. That is why they have a squad.

Doesn't this all come about with having a league set up were you only have to be the best team in it for the last 3 or 4 games of the season, the rest you can cruise through picking and choosing when to take a game seriously?

Rugby League is not the only game where we have the same clubs at the top each season as football now has a Premiership where now, every season, we see the same handful of the richer clubs are at the top and the rest just making up the fixtures with clubs like Fulham, Norwich City, West Bromwich etc are relegated and promoted on a regular basis.

Perhaps the time has now come for the FA to follow the example of Scottish football, where they have lower the number of clubs in their Premiership which has made games more competitive in spite of Celtic and Rangers being the top two clubs every season, just like Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City have been in the English Premiership of recent seasons.

A Premiership division of only ten clubs playing each other twice at home and away would be far more competitive than the present Premiership.

I feel sure supporters would welcome anything where they are getting better value for money than many of the one sided games that take place in the Premiership now.
