    Good win for Wigan, in truth they ground Leeds down with relentless pressure and when Leeds tired offered a bit more in their attacking play, a couple of off loads made all the difference

    Leeds having a slow start to the season, a few injuries and adjusting to loosing a few players at the end of a great season, seems to be taking a bit of time to get adjusted. I fully expect them to be there or there abouts come the run in


    Not the best advert for the game but a hard result and one that helps ease the pain of last years grand final

    I thought that it was a good game to watch and thoroughly enjoyed it. There again, any game where the Whinos get beat is ALWAYS a good game to watch.

    The second half was better, when the players tired and found some more space on the park

    The first half was enjoyable in that it was a great display of pressure but some basic errors and held back the score, although Manfredi's run was exceptional and deserved the try.

    I would have thought you would have wanted Leeds to win with your username, do you follow any team or just have an interest?

    Firstly I am not originally from leeds and secondly I'm a Hunslet season ticket holder.

    Great try involving Manfredi, the interview with him at the end was hilarious.

    Unfortunately I couldn't hear his interview in the pub. A superb run from him to set up Wigan's first.

    He said 'fucking' and when he realised what he had said, said 'shit'.

    Yes - it was a very 'honest' interview! He's a young lad who's just had the snot kicked out of him for 80 minutes. I expect they get trained to interview but they do come across a bit more honest than the drivel footballers spout

    Warrington with five on the bounce. A change from last season when there performances were inconsistent to say the least.

    Good game this evening, obviously not a good result though!

    Credit to Widnes they probably just deserved the win, some good defence to go with their great offensive side. First team to beat Wigan at home in nearly 2 years, no mean feat. It's looking like an interesting season again.

    Plenty of action in the Leeds v Saints game, I'd imagine the coaches ain't too happy though.

    Good win for Wigan today in the derby, year ago today I was at the JJB with the whole family!

    Warrington top the table after an impressive win against Widness and the Hull derby saw an impressive come back from 20 points down for Hull FC to win against KR

    Wigan have confirmed that Josh Charnley & Dan Sarginson are to leave at the end of the season.

    Josh is joining Sale Sharks in a code switch and Dan is off to the NRL. It's a real shame as both players have been in form this season, whilst Sarginson could feel threatened by Sam Tomkins returning, Charnley has hit back his form of a few seasons ago and will be missed especially with young Burgess going last season. I think he'll do well in Union, in the mould of a George North type player. Just hope he doesn't get bored of never seeing the ball...

    Charnley will be a loss to League, quality player, I just hope if he does well and gains England recognition he doesn't suffer like Sam Burgess did.

    Under Eddie Jones that is rather less likely than under the previous regime.

    There's not going to be the profile associated with the move, and I doubt anyone but Sale are funding the move. I think he'll do well, his games more suited to switching codes than Burgess was and Farrel before him.

    I've just seen the score from Belle Vue and even allowing for Wigan's injuries all I can type is - WTF?!

    They were missing a load of regulars but that's still embarrassing.

    Typically, as a result of work schedules, I have missed the mighty Hunslet's first league win of the season.

    I was busy doing jobs all weekend, caught the result and nearly fell of my chair!

    Fantastic result for Wakefield, fair play to them.

    Another win (on the road as well) for Catalans. That's 6 on the bounce. A crazy start to the season.

    Just watched the last twenty minutes of Wigan v Huddersfield, looks like it's been a cracker, I knew I shouldn't have bothered with Arsenal against Albion.

    I watched the whole game and it was a belter. I've enjoyed all 3 games that have been televised this weekend.
