Wigan made an almost impossible comeback yesterday against Hull KR...I seem to remember Wire made a very similar comeback a few years ago at Wakefield, perhaps not so great a deficit but very close to it...Details Latch ? Everybody knows you're the Wire chief anorak.

 

Very competent display yesterday vs Huddersfield in which the Wire put on a show of the new found tactics which were on show at Wembley, namely, very quick hands across the line creating an instant overlap. Some really good quality tries and I can't help feeling if we had played Wigan yesterday they wouldn't have been 26 behind, it would have been closer to 50 from which nobody could ever come back from.

Yes ...I'm still here..

 

and might I say; on the correct forum unlike a very recent post :unsure:

 

 

 

Super League average crowds for this season were ..

 

 

Bulls 11,761

Cas 6,633

Cats 9,383

Huddersfield 7,709

Hull 11,885

Hull KR 7,786

Leeds 14,948

London 2,808

Salford 5,492

Saints 14,088

Wakefield 8,172

Warrington 11,430

Widnes 5,942

Wigan 16,043

 

 

Wire showed a 3.8% increase

 

Seven clubs posted average increases. Saints are up 79% and Wakefield 25%. Cats showed a decent increase as well as Salford and Widnes (59%). In Saints and Salford's case, the new stadiums had a bearing.

Wigan and Leeds were 1% down and London 10% down.

 

Well we can't be best at everything :?

Time to pull the plug on the London 30+ year experiment...Their attendance figures are a disgrace and wouldn't be tolerated in a *heartland* club. After free tickets are taken into account their attendance must be around 2,000.

 

 

Red Hall are in denial over the London debacle.

 

And now it would seem Tony Rae has bought them more time with his succesful efforts to improve the team.

 

But sooner or later the stuff will hit the fan and that will be London consigned to the history books along with Scarborough Pirates,Cardiff Blues,Nottingham Outlaws,Lancashire Lynx and many more to numerous to mention.

 

 

But what I find as much more urgent and alarming was this news from Hull KR

If they struggle to survive then I fear a major meltdown at several other clubs and I really don't know where it would all end.
