Looks like Zak Hardaker is on his way to Wigan to replace Sam Tomkins. At only 26 Hardaker is likely to only get better, as long as he can overcome his personal issues.

An absolute arse hole cost Tigers the Grand Final last season totally disrupting the run up a week before, not the first time he has been in trouble, had more chances than he deserves

Yes I was there to watch Wigan thump Warrington, took in the Castleford game afterwards and good to see you beat Leeds.

Great to see that Zak Hardaker joins Wigan in November and a bit strange that Sam Tomkins is going to Catalan who could be in the Championship this time next season.

Surely once he's done his punishment, then he should be free to carry on playing. I think he's had quite a few personnel issues and hopefully now he's joining Wigan, he'll get back to his former self.

Shocked to hear that Shaun Wane is leaving Wigan at the end of the season and possibly going to Catalan. Ex player Shaun Edwards is being linked with taking over when Wane leaves.

Challenge Cup quarter finals this weekend. Catalan have already won at Huddersfield last night. Hull KR play Castleford tonight as well as Leeds v Leigh and finally Warrington play Wigan tomorrow.

I can see the line up for the semi's being

Catalan
Hull KR
Leeds
Wigan

I'm sure that Rob will disagree!!

Sorry was looking at the superleague fixture by mistake. Think it'll be a tough match between Warrington and Wigan. Wigan will be motivated to perform after last weekends loss to Hull KR and Sean Wane leaving the club.

Close fought game between Wigan and Castleford, with Wigan just coming out on top, which should give them home field advantage in the semi-finals.

Great to see Catalan beat Warrington and win the Challenge Cup. Well the top 4 in the Premiership are confirmed, can you make any argument for Castleford or Warrington to upset Wigan and St Helens?

Not a big fan of the new Rugby League structure, as I think the Super 8's are working fine. The only change I would have made to the Super 8's, would be that all 8 sides start on the same number of points.

Just realised that the Superleague Grand Final is the same evening as our game at FCUnited Of Manchester. Looks like a dash to Old Trafford from FCUM for the 6pm kick-off for either me or Robsraiders, sadly can't see anyway Wigan can avoid Castlefore in the semi-finals, so one of us is going to be disappointed.

Well the semi finals are this coming weekend, hard to bet against the two homes sides getting through to the grand final. Also the million pound game for promotion to the Superleague, is between Toronto and the London Broncos, hard to see Toronto not winning that one as well.

A big shock as Warrington win at St Helens. Can there be another shock tonight, I very much doubt it, but I'm sure Rob will disagree? :D

I agree money does talk, but the majority of our team has come through a very effective youth setup, almost certainly the best in the country. Crowds could be better, but it's tough when the game is live on TV.

You still are the Man U of the RL world, and a population of 317,000 !
But if game had been at Cas it would have been a full house, we took 4,500 fans poor support I say from Wigan, even tho on TV

Sorry to see that the Toronto Wolfpack lost the million pound game, now Superleague will have to play in a tiny stadium, with tiny support.
