Wigan showed their intent, with a fantastic comeback win at Hull last night, as they turned a 12-4 deficit, into a 12-18 win. Another massive game next Friday, with Warrington at home to Wigan.

Well Wigan have given the top 2 something to think about tonight. Coming back from 28-14 down with 20 minutes left and down to 12 men, to win 28-35. They should now clinch home field advantage for one of the semi-finals.

Unbelievable finish to the million pound game, as Hull KR snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Salford win 19-18 with a drop goal in extra time from nearly the half way line.

To take 10 minutes over making a decision is bordering on the ridiculous.

How come I'm not surprised at that prediction Rob. :D Should be a great game and I'd be happy with the same result the last time these 2 teams met in 2013, a Wigan win.

Can't see England beating Australia at the Olympic Stadium today at 2pm, hope I'm wrong of course.

It'll be interesting to see how the Toronto Wolfpack a new side get on in the Championship 2. Clubs at that level are poorly supported and the costs involved in taking a rugby team to North America at that level could be financially damaging for clubs at that level. On the other hand anything that can spread the game outside the normal areas, has to be good.

Poor advert in tonight's Superleague first game of the season, as St.Helens squeak past Leeds 6-4.

Good win for Castleford and a far better game than the evening before, but at the end of the day you were only playing Leigh. :D

Castleford's problem is that they may have a strong 13, but do they have good or decent replacements? Every team is going to get injuries to key players, how you overcome those injuries is going to have a big say if you're going to win the grand final in October. Look at Wigan last season, they had a horrendous injury list and yet they still won the grand final.

Great result for Warrington and British Rugby League as they overcome the Brisbane Bronco's. Hopefully Wigan will do the double over the NRL in a few minutes time.

I see there's now talk of the Superleague expanding to Western Australia, Papua New Guinea and Fiji. A bit of a trek for an away game.

Yeh they played really well, but it was only Warrington that they played. :D Warrington seem to be off the boil apart from their win over Brisbane last weekend. Great comeback win for Wigan at Widnes and a terrific first win for Leigh over St Helens.

As long as you don't get any injuries to key players. You have a good starting 13, but do you have suitable backups like the bigger clubs have? Somehow I doubt it, but time will tell.

Well it's half time in the Cas v Leeds game and Cas have torn the Rhinos a new one!
Being a Rhino's fan it's tough to watch but Leeds aren't good enough and have a lot of players missing but Cas (who also have players missing) are unstoppable!

The more I see them the more I'm convinced they are by far the best team in the league and great to watch too. They're in for not only a great season but a great 3 to 4 years.

Very, very impressive.
