Yep agreed, New Zealand played well below there normal high standards and they are bound to raise their game for the 2nd match of the series.

Good to see Sean O'Loughlin got the man of the series and Matty Smith got man of the match, both Wigan players as well. :thumbup:

Brilliant news that the Magic Weekend will be returning to St James's Park, Newcastle at the end of May. Wigan v Leeds is the last game on the Saturday and the whole family will be going. :thumbup:

The World Club challenge this weekend. I can see St. Helens and Wigan having a chance of winning, but Leeds are likely to get hammered.

What do I know as St Helens get thumped 10-38. Hopefully Wigan will put up more of a show tomorrow evening.

Well that was embarrassing for Wigan, as Brisbane show the gulf between the Superleague and the NRL.

Wow that was some second half tonight as it goes from 4-4, to 4-38 to North Queensland. The gap between the Superleague and the NRL is massive and clubs over here have got to find a way of bridging this gap.

Gutted that I'll miss the Magic Weekend. At least Wigan won last night, but they were only playing Castleford.

Interesting to see Toronto, yes Toronto from Canada join the Division 1 of the British League, which is equivalent of Division 3 or 2 leagues below the Superleague.

Over all of Britain I'd agree, but in Yorkshire, Lancashire and Humberside, it's far from a minority sport.

Great win for Wigan tonight against resurgent Castleford. Thought the referee tonight was very brave and made some great decisions.

Sour grapes my good friend. A large percentage of our team comes through their youth development policy and I suspect more of our team comes through the youth development policy, than Castleford's.

Wigan were a big disappointment on Thursday against Widnes and then Hull get thumped by St Helens last night. This years grand final winner is going to be very hard to predict.

I haven't a clue who will win it, this must be the most open it has ever been. A lot will depend on who is injured and who isn't.
