Wigan have had pretty much every 50 50 call this game. Finding it quite difficult to cheer on the cherry and white!

Well, congratulations to Wigan, the better team, but the ref was pretty hopeless. Good for Super League anyway, makes a nice change, 2 wins from 2. Yesterday was the better game.

Lower down the quality scale, London managed some how to snatch a win against Oldham, very, very fortunate reading reports.

Credit to the Super League teams. I thought Cronulla would do the business after what happened last night to the Broncos.

Hull take on Catalans tonight on sky, quite like the build up with Brian Carney now.


Oh, and for anyone interested in the Wolfpack experiment, their 3rd round Challenge Cup game against Siddal is being streamed on the BBC website, with no region restrictions. Starts 1pm.

Scrappy, stop start game so far, loads of penalties, ref poor. In short, crap.

This ref has been dreadful. Game not much better.

Edit: Good win for Catalans though.

Toronto had a baptism of fire (well mud and rain) in the cup today, Siddal doubled their usual crowd today for it, and made a real game of of it apparently Wolfpack still won in the end. Good start but it'll be interesting to see how many turn up for the Wolfpack's first home game in Canada.

As somewhat of a casual fan of league, could someone who's a bit more of a hardcore fan please explain to me the whole onfield decision malarkey surrounding tries that are sent to the TMO. What is the point of a ref giving an onfield decision of try or no try when the TMO is about to look at it and could immediately over-rule that onfield decision?

In case of doubt, or the video evidene being inconclusive the onfield decision is kept. The video has to, in theory, show without doubt the onfield decision was wrong before reversing it.

There are still really poor decisions made with video ref anyway in both hemispheres.

Always liked Luke Gale when he was at London Broncos (Harlequins RL), and Danny Orr who's on the Tigers coaching staff.
