Just watched Wigan V Catalans. A win for Wigan. Pretty ordinary game due to very poor pitch conditions. Richards playing with Catalans this season - couple of towering kickoffs that saw Wigan have 3 line dropouts from muffed kickoff returns. Sheenius’s Salford copped a hiding - looks like they are using WT defensive plan. From the highlights though Murdoch-Masila looked very damaging in attack running out wide off Lui.
I caught the Salford v St Helens game today. Sheens, Lui, BMM and Flanagan reunited again. Salford flogged them 44-10 - their first win against St Helens at home ever. Koukash could be seen losing it on the sideline. They were on fire and there’s a real buzz around the place. Some very good attacking football on display (granted the usual paper-thin ESL defence on display).
It’ll be interesting to see if it was a one-off or if Sheens and Koukash can transform the cellar-dwellers into a formidable and winning team. Early days but I’ll be watching their games with interest this year.
PS: BMM looked great. Super League might suit him well. Couldn’t get a run in the NRL but he looked like Taumololo against weaker defence.
