7’ 9.25” Whups, not 9’ 7.25”. I have enough trouble hitting it bowt adding another couple of feet on!

Everybody in Wigan was playing off 7'6ins and happy till they spoilt things and added another 3.25ins on. I could not get into it so packed in playing after years of loving the game, it might only seem a small addition but it made a big difference, it was also the end of Evan's and reece from Wales who were brilliant off the 7'6ins mark.
