    Teams Wigan are in the Grand Final!

    Cruel ending and so harsh on French, who was superb (although I don't think he could be blamed anyway, in all fairness). The shots of Hardaker trying to console him; he looked absolutely in bits after the game. The big questions afterwards were, should the penalty kick by Wigan have been...

    Teams Wigan are in the Grand Final!

    Well I thought we did OK! We stopped Hull playing, and took our chances. Yeah the ptb is a bit scruffy; I think the NRL still benefits from the effects of the old two-ref system, the players are used to being policed at the ptb. Catalans were pretty poor against Saints, lost their discipline...

    Teams Wigan are in the Grand Final!

    Saints easily turned over Catalans tonight, so it's a traditional Wigan v Saints Final. The biggest and oldest rivalry in rugby league. By a mile.

    TV The Netflix Thread

    Dazza, what did you reckon to Valhalla Murders? BBC are starting it on Saturday. I wasn't as impressed by Barbarians as you were; I thought it was a poor shadow of Vikings.

    I didn't realise that. Frankly it seems a bit like bullying to me.

    State of Origin 2020 State Of Origin.

    I've been really impressed with him all season. He must be a massive part of Penrith's success. Plenty of skill, good kicking game, solid defence, there's a lot to like.

    State of Origin 2020 State Of Origin.

    Yes, agree with all of that. I wouldn't give up on Cleary, and Wighton has as good a shout at 6 as anyone. I've never been wild about Keary. I didn't realise Luai was Origin eligible?

    Teams Wigan are in the Grand Final!

    Tonight Wigan hammered Hull FC 29-2 and booked their Grand Final spot in style. In Sean O'Loughlin's last game at the DW Stadium, sadly devoid of fans, our defence never gave Hull a chance to get going, and by the second half, they were escaping their own end only rarely. Jackson Hastings, trust...

    Good contest, deserved win for QLD, said through gritted teeth.

    Teams Wests Tigers

    The Titans have a smart coach and are on the up. They seem to be doing a hell of a lot of recruiting, how are they staying under the SC? BTW is nobody interested in Benji, then? I cherished hopes at one point he might come here, but somehow we have managed to retain both Jackson Hastings and...

    State of Origin Pick an Australian team from 40 years of State of Origin history.

    I'm enjoying reading this thread, but isn't there the danger that posters are making the same mistake as the Blues, by trying to crow-bar too many play-makers in there? :p

    Teams Cronulla Sharks 2020

    Townsend had a shaky end to the season, but he is surely the least of the Sharks' worries?
