Well you're one sixth of the way there. Tough game for Wigan tonight & a real arm fight. Jackson Hastings was MOTM yet again & i think Hardaker won the battle of the full-backs.

Yes he clearly won that battle.
It is a shame that Connor lets his head get so full of garbage. He could easily be a MOS on merit by skill alone but what on earth goes on inside his head?
I expected a tough game, but not that tough.
Still, I have to go and give some Dull fans a lot of sarcasm. (Basically, all my family first) !!!!!

Half time. Good game from both sides.
0-6 to KR. played real football with 2 kicks from the floor after a good 6.
6-6 Good passing try from Warry just after we missed a second chance. The chance came from us throwing the ball and being intercepted.
Deflated us for a while and 12-6 with a very good passing try from Warry.
12-12. Yet another flowing move get us level.
12-14 penalty when Ratchford does ? No idea why.
12-18 yet more flowing rugby from both sides we go in again with good play.

Even if we get beaten here this side is NOT going to finish anywhere near the bottom of the table.
Only downer is an ex Warry player on coms' saying how good they are with offloads and throwing the ball about, but we are matching them with exactly the same sort of game yet ........ rather stunted praise.

Well that was deflating.
Swapped 6 at the start of the second half and at 60 minutes you could not call it but then Warry got the run you need with a couple of dropped balls from us and 2 tries run in with no defence.
Came back with another try but Warry went in again as well.
Not a 20 point game in any way really, but we move on.
And Charnley goes over after the hooter while I posted so
EDIT.
Nop.
Even the com's are now saying the score board is wrong and we don't deserve this.

Well you did say it, as you got truly hammered in the last 20 mins. How much would you have won?

Put a fiver on would have got 140 back. That said, I now want Leeds to get stuffed today so we don't drop a place.
It was not quite like that Pete, even when they went in front with about 17 to play the ex Warry player commentating said you could not put money on who would win. The way the lead went back and forwards backs that up.
What happened was we made a daft offload about 15 from their line when we should have kept the ball by taking the tackle and they went over from 85 yards to make it a 2 score lead. At that point we started throwing the ball about in a silly way to get it back instead of doing as we had been and they simply picked us off.
This was a game where the score really does not give the true picture of the game. Sad we lost, but not at all deflated or disheartened.

Good win for Huddersfield today, as they surprisingly beat Leeds who seem to be struggling at the moment.

I have never been convinced that Agar is the man to take them forward.
If Sinfield is to get it right he needs to stop the old pals act.
As I said yesterday, I am happy Udders won.
No match for 3 weeks now for KR so time to get the injured lads fit again. I am worried about Korbin Sims. 3 matches and has not finished 1 yet.
2 head knocks and now an ankle injury.
Seems we have pulled a couple of lads from Cas for next season. (Thank God Watts is not 1 of them), but 1 is an ex KR player returning home, and also Radders has raided Dull for Jamie Shaul and 2 others. If Shaul gets a shirt ahead of Evalds the rugby world has gone bonkers, but better as a Cas reserve than have him at KR.

Agar isn’t up to it.

Leeds will be ok but it’ll be only papering over the cracks.

You seem to have lost the nucleus of a pretty decent side & now your having to bring in fringe players who aren't up to it. Fortunately for Leeds, there are worse sides in the SL.

I see that the 2 QF Challenge Cup games this weekend not on the BBC are being shown on Sky Sports on Saturday.

Think Comeon is nearer the mark Pete. If you look back over the last few years, since 2016 in fact, Leeds have had 1 good season which, in light of the other season endings was something of a fluke. The best of the last Leeds great sides was the 1 that thumped us at Wembley in 15. Since then it has been a downward spiral.
I like Donno, he is a good lad, but in all honesty, when he is your "go to man" to drag you up the pitch, you have problems that run deep. He was not good enough in a side that was relegated. How can you hope he will be a top man?

Good to see that Wigan's Tony Clubb, has been banned for racist language in the game against Hull. Although surely a longer ban would have sent a stronger message, that this idiotic behavior can not be tolerated.

Reduced punishment because he has never done it before !!!!!
Strangely Wigwam defended him, yet Joel was hounded out of town when he at least had the defence he had drunk too much before having a go at a barmaid

Wow what a win tonight ! Tigers had to dig deep to overcome a plucky Salford side, its a pity Wane is in charge of England as he wont be picking McShane, the winner of the Man of Steel isnt good enough for him.
I do fancy us to beat the Wire, would love a trip to Wembley.

Fuming.
Got the other 3 winners in a 4 game accumulator.
Why on earth did they not take 1 point 1 minute from time? Game over.
Happy enough to take 1 in extra time which was to bloody late for me !!!

Poor performance by Wigan yesterday afternoon, far too many mistakes & yet we could have leveled the score near the end of the game.
