I was just up early and saw Jimmy Maloney drop a 1 pointer in golden point time from 40 off metres out.

Imagine if we had a general like that to guide us around this year?

BTW … he did throw a shocker 15 metres out from their own line that St Helen’s couldn’t finish off.
Catalan finish top of the table.

Missed it in TV as was driving but listened on the radio. St Helens were 30-12 up with four minutes to go. Catalans got it back to a golden point game. Incredible finish.

Maybe we could persuade him to delay retirement by a season and get him to play for us with Johnson. Imagine them two playing together with the pack we have and with Walsh on the back of all that.

We can only dream. It won't happen. He is staying in France after all.

Catalans have played some great stuff at times in the last few seasons, peaking imho in the semi v St Helens when they were 27-0 up at half time. They lacked discipline before, a good chance of winning ESL this season

Born and bred Wiganer.

Dean Bell is one of my all time favourite Wigan players and ticks both boxes.

I do hate St Helens yes. Wouldn't want them to win if my life depended on it lol

A friend of mine , played at St Helen’s for a few years and even he ‘hates’ Wigan fans , despite being a NZ’er.
Is that the biggest rivalry in England RL or is it Hull vs Hull KR?

Great city Leeds btw
Yes, a great city.

I look forward to getting back to Yorkshire one day, when we can travel again . I also spent some time in North Yorkshire and have friends in Ripon. A lovely part of the world.

Stay safe mate.

Depends who you speak to as Hull fans say theirs is the only 'derby' as they're from the same city.

Obviously as a Wigan fan it's 100% Wigan/Saints for me.
