Pyeyta I thought is was exclusive to one or two MANCHESTER TEAMS But I blame the idiots who take the bait and reply to a certain poster. They don't need to put him on ignore just ignore what he posts or don't even look at the posts . Once he realises no one is bothered then he will give up wasting his time posting.It is the same on GENERAL

Exactly, but surely it is time that Admin did something about it as this is supposed to be a sports section of a Wigan website about our own local clubs and general sporting matters around the Wigan area and should not be dominated about things relating to the two football clubs in Manchester and elsewhere which have nothing to do with Wigan.

Even this topic is supposed to be about Wigan Warriors!

2 players banned again…Sam Walters included…Matt Peet must be gutted as he would have wanted Sam to have more game time before Wembley…is it just bad luck or what…should be an interesting line up for Wigan and Warrington when they meet a week before the final

That elbow on the ground by Hiku was worse than anything that went on during the match and he got away with it Roy

With respect to my old friend Roylew , I appreciate i have not been posting of late ,but i do feel after viewing the Wigan v Hielull KR plenty and i mean planty re-runs " I feel that the judiciary "have an almighty AXE to grind against WIGAN , I also realise people on here on reading this will say "i am biased" Well i am Definitely NOT!!! i have come to a conclusion which is this that Wigan Warriors is either !" a dirty thug team " Or as one which i totally believe in ,which is they are an honest team.. But the Hierarchy are biased against my club Wigan .W. There were instances last saturday where the man in the middle gave penalties one minute for an offence ,then for a similar offence later did not give a penalty ,as far as i am concerned this is happening far,far too often since the "new " ruling's came into being , But then again people will argue the toss which is after all great one way or tuther !!!HAVE A NICE DAY!! g.b.

Hi GB…there does seem to be some bias against Wigan..must admit HKR played right into our hands playing “down the spine” continuously especially in those conditions.ideal for open rugby…a proper thread this

Absolute joke and embarressment for the game that the only two suspensions were Wigan players when the worse offence in the game was that committed by Hiku.

But the inconsistant rulings of MRP are happening every week and the RFL are doing nothing about it!

At least Marty Peet has took it on the chin and says we have to address our tackling methods to stay clear of these people at the RFL…good on him…

Providing we stay clear from a glut of injuries, the first team squad, backed up by the players in the Reserve team and the best players of the Academy team is now up to enough strength to handle anything dished out by the MRP.

This weekend we will be missing Byrne, Ellis and Walters because of suspensions and the injured Isa, but the players replacing them like Cooper, Chan, Eshe jnr, Hill would be just as good.

Great game of rugby…thought Leigh played well but our defence and class told in the end….Wardle is as close to Eric Ashton as a centre,drops his shoulder and wham….where’s Gideonfel to back me up

Miski could do with a centre like Wardle,, He hardly got a decent pass from Keighran all night.

Replied: 6th Jul 2024 at 05:48

Must admit we don’t seem to create overlaps down the right side as much as the left….a lot of Miski’s tries have come from cut out passes from Field or little dinky kicks from French,but Keighran is a good centre who’s a little short on confidence with the ball at the moment…he’ll be fine

When Wardle is the best British centre in the game and Marshall is playing as good, if not better then Johnstone. Questions need to be asked why the pair together with N'Semba were not selected by Wane for his recent England squad for the game against France.

From what I saw of his squad, it appears that like when he was Wigan Head Coach, he has his favourite players irrespective of what currant form they are showing.

Never thought Wane was an “intelligent “ coach

Only surprised that he did not select Sam Powell as he was one of his favorites when at Wigan.

p.s. Anyone know what has happen to Joe Maplin?

Keighran gets another 1 match ban….how many matches has he missed now…. I like him as a player but he must get his tackling in order….Matt Peet fuming I bet

Replied: 15th Jul 2024 at 17:33

There were worse offences than that of Keighton and if Peet is fuming, it may be more to do Wigan players apearing to singled out out for special attention which if true, comes as no surprise when rumour has it that the chairman of the MRP is a certain Paul Cullen who was no angel himself where foul offences were concerned.

Did youself or anyone see any offence commiited by Havard other than a accidental head clash?

The present disciplinary system is not fit for purpose and it is time the RFL listened to the discontenment by the supporters.

I agree OC,Peet continues to juggle his backs through suspensions and injuries…yeah Cullen was always biased in his previous job analysing for TV…didn’t know he was head of the Disiplinary team

He is according to fan's websites, but apparentlly the RFL will not confirm if he is or indeed the names any other members of the panel when been asked by supporters.

Accoding to the RFL website, Keighton has sucessfully challenged the one match ban!

Did anyone watch the third match in THE STATE OF ORIGIN SERIES ?????
What a an absolute blinder of a rugby match ,hard tackling as for supposedly "head high " tackles the ref one ashley cline (remember him) well he controlled the match ok execpt for one instance a mass brawl but overall the ferociousness of the tackling and the speed of the game was great . So i wish the English R.L. would cease in thier feeble attempts of interferring with the game here . Obviously i am against the "owd stiff arm tackle" but i think the vast majority of players are clean . One last item whenever the next matches Great Britain v Australia are planned i do feel for the brits for those Aussie bloke look like the HULK !!HAHA .
