Decent win. French is a real attacking threat from full-back. He is one of those players, like S Johnson, who can at times just dance straight thought a defence, and it's always good to have a guy like that on your books. Leeds had a better side out than last week when they were trounced by Saints, with Konrad Hurrell and few others returning. But we handled him OK.

Furthermore, Briscoe's try should never have been given. He put it down in the corner, the ref blew for a try straightaway, but the big screen replay clearly showed he had put his foot on the sideline. If it had gone to the VR, it would certainly have been disallowed. They kicked the touchline conversion too, so that's six points they shouldn't have had.


[edit] Re-watching, that's not right. Leeds did not kick the conversion.

If you get to see the game, or highlights of it, TFR, I'm sure you'll see some scores you will enjoy!
Yes, thanks moto748 moto748, I am starting to keep more of an eye out.

Kayo Sports have 'minis', which allows me to see the highlights of certain games. They are handy, although I watched the Warriors vs. Castleford game in full the other week. Unfortunately, I think St Helens has gone to the top of the ESL table once again. We cannot allow this!

Wigan Warriors head coach Adrian Lam has signed a new one-year contract to remain with the Super League club for the 2021 season.

Lam initially joined Wigan for the 2019 campaign but stayed for a second season after Shaun Edwards changed his mind about taking over at the DW Stadium.

The 50-year-old led the club to a first League Leaders' Shield since 2012 and the Super League Grand Final - which they lost to Saints.

DAVE BOLTON: A rugby league star who was one of the first British players to enjoy success in Australia has died at the age of 83.

Dave Bolton, who made his Wigan Warriors debut in 1954, scored 127 tries in 300 games for his hometown club before joining Balmain Tigers in 1965.

The Rugby Football League (RFL) said his "career records speak for themselves".

Wigan Warriors said Bolton was a "Wigan and Great Britain legend".

Wigan Warriors forward George Burgess has left the club on medical grounds.

The 28-year-old joined the Warriors from Australian side South Sydney Rabbitohs for the 2020 season on a three-year deal.

However, a persistent hip injury restricted the England international to just eight appearances.
