Probably,just been into town for some food.It seemed quiet.

The Wigan people certainly haven't turned up at the DW tonight.Although the M6 and M61 seemed busier,it's a good job the out of town support have shown up.

Castleford take the lead,i hope the Worriers don't blow it tonight.

10-16 half time.

I'm still confident the Worriers can turn this around.

Getting a bit of help from the officials though.

Personally i think Cas had a try disallowed that i'd have given with the benefit of the doubt and i'd have chalked one of the Wigan tries off for obstruction.

Good job,i wasn't the ref.

Wigan were the better team in the second half and deserved to win!

A good two points considering that we were without two props, Pat Richards, injuries during the game and a Referee who decided that he had to keep up the poor standard of refereeing that is a blght on the game.

And for the record, the Castleford supporters did us the honour of providing around 100 or so in the gate of 13,000 plus.

Weren't Castleford missing eleven players?

my condolences to you Bassman
as regards the match it would appear that Mr Matterson was less than enamoured with Wigan.The match officials, and the R.L,bosses.he claims that wigan asked for this date and got it, also Cas had 11 players out, and two more injured during the match, also that the disallowed try by Ferres should have stood, so the cards were heavily stacked in wigans favour,Matterson had wanted the fixture later this month but was told that the stadium wasn't available,and then he said that the ground should always be available, the Cas ground he says is apparently not up to scratch but as he points out it is always available.and your ground should be available at all times, the R.L.bosses of course will take no notice of Mattersons complaint.as their opponents are one of the protected species.

kenny. did not watch the match but have read about it in the paper.

a controversial decision from video ref phil bentham left the warriors with enough breathing space in a dramatic clash. brett ferres appeared to have at least done enough to get the benefit of the doubt and a cas try then would have set up a grandstand finish,BUT bentham ruled it out and the warriors held on.

warriors coach maguire said : somtimes you get calls like that, it was an ugly one for us, we made a meal of the first half but we were LUCKY to get the win.

seems wigan are getting plenty of strange decisions of late,hope their luck carries on, only two hard games left now, both warrington, if they win them both should do the double.

It's like the good old days. A 50/50 decision goes in our favour and dummies are spat out left right and centre. Love it.

As for the match, we've had 2 below pat performances but grafted hard to win them. That shows great spirit. Good crowd on for a Wednesday night also

13000 plus but where were the Cas fans.Also the Leeds fans were few and far between at the weekend not like usual for them.

Some of the travelling support this year have been dreadful. A Wednesday night match against the champions isn't going to bring many from a depleted Cas though.

Two points just about earned

What ‘benefit of the doubt’? – there was NO doubt the ball was not down!

I personally believe the rule should be changed to ‘if in doubt give nowt’ but ‘the powers that be’ want points on the board

Watched the State of Origin decider after it – what a game!
Are we really ‘catching the Aussies up’?

wigvet,
In a word "NO"

I watched the origin match yesterday morning and to be perfectly honest if I was watching that every week I would be delighted!
There were some fantastic athletes in the match and Inglis must be up there as one of the finest!
I don,t think Sam Tomkins would get away with his sideways movement in that class of rugby.

The Castleford team actually was only missing six players from what would have been their regular first team selection of seventeen.

Wigan also had three players missing in Coley, Prescott and Richards

peawapp strikes again,dodgy this,dodgy that,nothing to say about the dodgy forward pass from Myler on Friday in the build up to Wires 3rd try,no, thought not,its just a {anti}Wigan thing

kenny, peawapp is a secret wigan supporter,he must be because he knows everything that goes on when wigans played.and i think he is a tad jealous of your sam tomkins.
