Fair play to Wigan but the ref has been worth at least 12 points to them tonight. Try/no try nonsense needs to be scrapped as well.

Man of the match in the stadium the guy who should've been banned. SMH as the kids say.

I’m ok with Wigan winning it to shut the Saints up but some bad ref calls took the gloss of it for me.

Embarassing

Wigan were absolutely superb tonight and did SL proud, like Saints did last year.

Give credit where credit's due and that includes saints last year. Wigan were superb tonight and from a Wire perspective, we're knowwhere near that level.

My hat has been taken off to Wigan tonight.

Only 2012 have our first team been close to that level, and still fell short.

Saints and Wigan have thrown no more money than us, and we’re still miles away.

It really arrows down to on thing. The investment in the academy and pre academy.
When the kids start consistently winning all their competitions, is when we the club looses the monkey.

It’s quite stark when you look at how many of our pack players are Wigan ex-academy.
Currie Wood Nicholson Powell Bullock not sure on Dwyer but certainly pre academy.

In all our 20 years at the HJ, I reckon we have more ex-Wigan academy forwards playing in 2024, than Warrington academy have produced.
Possibly only Cooper and Philbin have broken into the frame, and on best form and fitness, Philbin is still behind all the Wiganers.
The likes of Laithwaite tossed aside for more Wiganers.

Bradford must be going in at HT wondering how they've managed to end up behind on the scoreboard.

It was interesting to watch both dressing room celebrations of Warrington after beating Hull reserves and Wigan after winning the WCC. They looked about the same.

As you said we are miles off in terms of sporting pedigree, culture, will to win, on field leadership.

Bradford seem determined to gift wrap a place in the next round of the Challenge Cup to Widnes.
