Re: Wigan - home : Sat Mar 09, 2024 8:23 pm  
Butterworth looked good. Was first interchange to come on halfway through the first half (part of a double interchange). May be wrong, but I think he remained on the pitch for the rest of the match. Shame he's only here for two weeks. Perhaps after the Hull KR match in early April we can have him back for longer?

I was totally oblivious that Butler got a yellow for the penalty that put Wigan 8 ahead after 47 minutes. Appears we leaked 14 points whilst down to twelve.

Yup me too Smithers. Missed it completely.

Btw with larger crowds have come a much livelier fan zone and better food options. Had my pie very good.

Davis did come on again for Butterworth. I have to say B was the livelier of the two so I hope that will drive performance and competition. If I’m honest though it’s the Campo Meadows axis that needs to transition to the SL standard ASAP or we need to recruit.

Davis indded came back on midway through the second half, but replaced a Prop I believe. Butterworth started the move for Kershaw's second try. If I have my terminology correct, he was first receiver at dummy half (?) to start that move.

Not sure how specific the forward positions are in Rugby League without proper scrums, but I suspect Davis was playing loose forward and Stock was at Prop at that particular juncture of the match.

Unfortunately didn't see any of the game but Cakeman doesn't seem very impressed with the Ref. Was that fair comment?

No. The only quibble is that where it’s a bit of a mismatch ensuring the far better side stays onside most of the time is really important and I think there were times when he could have pinged them. But it’s swings and roundabouts.

Cheers BT, I think off side is a recurring issue in both codes of rugby that the officials constantly struggle with & and dare, I say, often guess at.

On side off side we were pretty good on sat, looks like it's something they have put a lot of effort into, it was wigan who were off the line too quick a few times. Disappointingly we are still getting caught not square at marker a fair bit but thats also a lot yo do with speed opposition are regaining there feet, incorrect PTB is unforgivable though, we have been caught in all our games doing that. It's not hard, if in doubt touch it with the foot
