Well done to Wigan RLFC for last night !
With only 20 minutes to go, Wigan were 30 - 6 down, and looking down and out. The match was at Bradfords Odsal stadium. The game was a end of season play-off and a total knockout game.
Wigan won by the narrowest of margins 31 - 30.
Why some watch Rugby Union I have no idea.

Regardless of this franchise rubbish, Rugby League is the only sport worth following. I'd pay money to not see a game of football. Well done, Wigan (through gritted teeth!)

They dont call it the great game for nothing (TGG).

Rugby League is the best kept secret of us Northerners.

I hear that Chris Jackson was a fairly good amateur Rugby League player himself, having played for his home town club, Todmorden, many times in the past..

Just in passing, Rugby League needs a strong Humberside presence.

Hull is a stronghold of the great game.

Wigan BNP also had a decent result on Thursday in the Wigan west area.

Well done to all those at Wigan BNP.

By the way, I had just converted John Tyndall before his unexpected demise, to Rugby League.

He preferred Rugby to football without a doubt.

I sent him some video tapes of Wigan Rugby League matches. He was delighted in them. I also never got them back !

It was an honour to do that for JT.

Rugby League is a a part of northern culture.

The main BNP heartlands are in Rugby League areas.

Just around the M62.

Agreed, but let's call it East Yorkshire. After all, Wigan against Saints is a Lancashire derby, not a Greater Manchester-Merseyside match.

Rugby League or Rugby Union? Which is better?
Personally I think Rugby League out classes union by far, though being a Wakefield Wildcats fan makes me a little biased! However I do admit that internationally Rugby League needs some work so Rugby Union has that on its side but what about the game itself?
It seems that Rugby Union is just a collection of dog piles most of the time followed by short lived runs which either involve running straight into the other teams players or scoring the odd try, WHY!?
In Rugby League I can see the point in running straight into your opponent as you have to make some ground only having six tackles to do it but in Union, it’s just a way of losing the ball! Fools!
I mean I like doing a little Rugby League Betting every other week but when it comes to Rugby Union, its just boring! KICK! THERE INFRONT! KICK! THERE BEHIND!! KICK THERE INFRONT AGAIN!!! OH NO WAIT!! THERE BEHIND AGAIN! RUN THE DAMN BALL!!!!
Anyway I’ll stop my rant here and give someone else say what they think!
