    Dave , just watched the Wigan v Saints match ( it was on US tv live ) , congrats , was rooting for your lot the whole game . ( Leeds fans have to root for whoever’s playing Saints ) . Hope all is well in Roath .
    All the best
    Andy H .

  2. Hi Andy …….. nice to hear from you again. Hope all is well out there in the States. Keep forgetting to update this site!
    Yep that was a good hard slog …. a terrific entertaining match which Wigan could not afford to lose. This year relegation is back and the bottom four teams have to battle with the top four in the next league down for survival – so Wigan are now in 3rd place rather than 8th ……. so comfortable ! Have you heard the news about Kevin Sinfield changing codes next season ?.. bit of a surprise … everybody in League will miss him …….. Keep in touch … best wishes D
