Bit scruffy at times,was to be expected after the highs of last weekend. Marshall mom but for me couldn’t choose between Kade Ellis and Luke Thompson.
Looking really good in the forwards,Dupree worth a mention too.
All this and only a fiver to get on

Considering that eight of what is considered to be the best team were missing, it was a good work out for the squad players that stepped in.

Oh. and I don't think we need worry where the goal kicking is concerned with Adam, Ryan and Jack backing up!

But, I do wish they would play in the famous Cherry and White hoops when there is no colour clash!

I wish the Wigan drummer would shove it up his arse. Spoiled the game yesterday.

For Wigan to get 60 points with eight of the best team missing only says to me that there should be no play off competitions in the Championship and Division One and the two teams that have finished top should be the ones promoted, especially if on the top with a excess of points.

From what I saw of the Featherstone v Wakefield game played yesterday in appalling winter rugby conditions, both teams would be making a better contribution to this season's Super League than London who appeared to be worse than the Wakefield team of last season.

Saints away to Leeds 2 weeks on the bounce…shame…if Leeds play 100% and Saints play 100% Saints should sneak both games….interesting though

Not good enough by the BBC for this tie of the round between Leeds and St Helens not to be showned on normal channels and only showned on iplayer etc.

How long will it take for the Super League games to be treated in the same way?

In my opinion, the coverage of the non Sky Super League games should have remain with Channel Four whose presention headed by Adam Hills and Helen Skelton was better than the first effort of the BBC at the Castlelford v Wigan game.

p.s. Anyone know the reason why the home games of the Women's, Reserve and Academy games are not being played at the Robin Park Arena?

Many supporters are not happy that the BBC is not showing live coverage any of the Challenge Cup games this weekends cup ties on live television which now involve the twelve Super League clubs, not even the Leeds v St Helens tie.

The treatment of Rugby League game by the BBC which includes scrapping the weekly highlighlights on The Super League Show on BBC Two and now just showing highlights on iPlayer is another example of how they are treating the game and the RFL are not doing anything about it.

Even ITV show hightlights of Rugby Union Premiership games on the live channel of ITV Three.

We Rugby League supporters also pay for a television licence!
