St Helens v Wigan Warriors - Tetley's Super League VI Round 16
Friday 22nd June 2001. Kick Off 8:00pm at Knowsley Road

Match Report

The sun was out and Wigan started like a train in the second league against the Saints. Just 9 minuets had gone and it was 12-0 to Wigan. with tries from Furner from a Matthew Johns yes Matthew Johns, American Football style forward pass. Three minutes later Farrell raced over from an Ade Lam pass, easy peasy lemon squeezy 12-0, 9 mins gone at this rate we would win 114-0.

The game then turned into a bruising encounter especially when Howard patted Cunningham on the nose with his elbow and was put on report. And Terry O'Connor plastered his nose round the other side of his face trying to nut Chris Joynt. Saints biggest cheers came when the Ref gave a decision to Saints (they did have a point)

Saints did come back and back with a vengeance with Hoppe ploughing over and Fairleigh Stretching over to make the scores level. Yours truly a bit worried we haven't beaten them for ages please don't win again I couldn't stand it.

Good old Wigan shut the Saints up just before half time 9 points in 4 minuets. First Kris Radlinski scored his usual try. Straight from the kick off Sculthorpe kicked straight into touch. Cheers Paul, Farrell scored from 50 yards. And then with seconds to go Faz scored a drop goal Joe Lydon style from 40 yards half time 21-12.

Saints did come out of the blocks in the second half and only a couple of great tackles. But is was Farrell who had the first score with a penalty for Wigan 23-12. Dare I say it we were looking comfortable. Saints were missing Long and Martyn ( wasn't he supposed to be playing). The next score was going to be vital.

It was Saints to there credit who came back with Peter Shiels going in the conversion missed 23-16, 25 mins to go can they stage one of there comebacks. Wigan were starting to show a bit of raggedness with a couple of needless penalties. Saints has a try disallowed for a forward pass. Come on lads.

Get in there!!! Chris Chester break pass to Radlinski. Try scored, Farrell Conversion 29-16. All over.

Saints again wouldn't let it lie and Fairleigh scored a good individual try Sculthorpe conversion 29-22, Can they make a game of it?

The tension mounted and the video ref gave Newlove a try Conversion made it 29-28. Let battle commence

Wigan had just gone they stopped playing, stopped tackling they though like I did the game was won. You don't think like this with these boys. The gladiators were locking horns. Nothing given, tackles flying in. What a fantastic game. Then disaster Wellens take passed to Sullivan try!!! no What a tackle from Brian Carney, we are still in front. What next ?. Next was he refereeing decision that could have changed the game and gave Saints the Match Neil Cowie on the last tackle was offside. Never in a month of Sundays. Thank God Sculthorpe missed. But it was all Saints at the end Joynt made the vital mistake was that the last chance 90 seconds to go. 45 seconds to go Saints with the ball - forward pass All over hooter goes.

I am off to have a cardiac.!!!!
