It is a massive boost and it is a big relief. We played Wakefield

:21:12.:21:16.

last week and they put 30 points past us, even though they did not

:21:16.:21:20.

win, they got a lot of confidence and it was only a matter of time

:21:20.:21:24.

before they posted a big win and Catalan is a big scalp to take.

:21:24.:21:30.

have got a Catalan comeback, not surprising, we are used to that

:21:30.:21:35.

this season. It was pretty much an off day for them. It is never easy

:21:35.:21:40.

having to travel every second week like they do. If you get a team in

:21:40.:21:44.

the mood like Wakefield at the time, at the start of this game, it's

:21:44.:21:48.

going to be a difficult afternoon. Weak field will be desperate to

:21:48.:21:55.

sink their teeth in and then pushed down, keep them in there --

:21:55.:22:03.

Wakefield. He has announced this will be his last year? He has been

:22:03.:22:08.

one of the most consistent players in Super League for Catalan. That

:22:08.:22:13.

will be a big loss for them. Friday night was Derby night on the west

:22:13.:22:16.

side of the Pennines, in what is traditionally one of the biggest

:22:16.:22:20.

fixtures of the seasonthe season against Warrington at the DW

:22:20.:22:25.

Stadium. I'm not sure it was named Stadium. I'm not sure it was named

:22:25.:22:28.

in honour of Dave Wood, our commentator, but he was there any

:22:28.:22:33.

way. A fantastic atmosphere inside the DW Stadium tonight. 20,000

:22:33.:22:38.

packed in here, too early to define either side's season, but a

:22:38.:22:43.

psychological blow could be struck one way or another tonight. The

:22:43.:22:50.

referee, Richard Silverwood, doing his bit for Sport Relief as well.

:22:51.:22:58.

Here's Leuluai, picking it up from the base of the scrum. He was

:22:58.:23:02.

caught, the referee has decided, that has given Wigan the penalty

:23:02.:23:10.

for the high tackle. A swish by Morley and a spot by a Westwood. A

:23:10.:23:16.

moment of potential history here, if Pat Richards puts this over, it

:23:16.:23:21.

takes him past 2000 points in a Wigan jersey and a bit goes, 2-0 on

:23:21.:23:29.

the night, 2000 plus one in Pat Richards' week in Korea. Here's

:23:29.:23:39.
:23:39.:23:40.

Rich at dummy-half. Westwood. Here's Briers, now they have some

:23:41.:23:49.

options. Atkins for the line! Ryan Atkins claiming the try, the

:23:49.:23:54.

referee wants somebody to have a second look here. Steve Ganson has

:23:54.:23:59.

been asked about the grounding. Real strength from that position,

:23:59.:24:04.

but that looks OK. What is the verdict, Steve Ganson? Warrington

:24:04.:24:09.

have the lead. A quick response. The carried England football

:24:09.:24:13.

manager, Stuart Pearce, just getting a bit of advice. Tony Smith

:24:13.:24:22.

offering him a few words. Here's Richards, only inches away, my

:24:22.:24:32.
:24:32.:24:34.

word! Warrington's defence hangs on. Hop! Hoc scores. A second opinion

:24:34.:24:44.
:24:44.:25:04.

will be sought, but it looks like has found a bit of a gap and

:25:04.:25:14.

Farrell is off. Just put down, but he has... Laurent Blanc has scored!

:25:14.:25:19.

The referee's happy. One or two questions here as to whether Liam

:25:19.:25:26.

Farrell actually play the ball. Very quick to his feet, the referee

:25:26.:25:29.

says play on. Michael Laura Bechtolsheimer masking no further

:25:29.:25:39.

questions. Here comes Morley. So five tackles from here. Warrington

:25:39.:25:47.

looking to make a big impression if they can. Briers hurling it wide.

:25:47.:25:56.

Here's Monahan. Terrific, absolutely terrific! Confirmation

:25:56.:26:00.

is being looked at again here but look at this for a finish.

:26:00.:26:09.

Wonderful dive, no doubts about the grounding. Some moments deserve to

:26:09.:26:12.

be legitimate for their sheer brilliance and that was one of them.

:26:12.:26:19.

Nothing wrong with that. Jol Monahan the eye-catching scorer.

:26:19.:26:24.

Ryan gigs and Michael Carrick, the two Manchester United players a

:26:24.:26:30.

month to the watching crowd tonight. 21,267 is the official attendance.

:26:30.:26:38.

The referee has given a penalty to Warrington. Timely for their point

:26:38.:26:44.

of view, the hooter has sounded. Not square at the marker. Hotson

:26:44.:26:49.

with a chance to level things up as they go into the break -- Hodgson.

:26:49.:26:59.
:26:59.:27:10.

with real brilliance. Over the halfway line. Here goes Tomkins.

:27:10.:27:16.

Watson is beaten, Tomkins still going. -- Hodgson is beating.

:27:16.:27:20.

Tomkins can't get it away. There were players in attendance and if

:27:20.:27:26.

he passed it, surely Wigan would have scored, but he held on and

:27:26.:27:36.
:27:36.:27:36.

Warrington hang on. Still a decent position, though. This is A flower.

:27:36.:27:46.
:27:46.:27:46.

Some solid defending on that Warrington line -- this is Flour.

:27:46.:27:53.

Carmont, Richard! Try! That position set up by Sam Tomkins. Pat

:27:53.:28:00.

Richards with a simple finish. Some super centre play by Carmont, by

:28:00.:28:05.

the way. But this is where it all began. Tomkins from behind the line

:28:05.:28:11.

making mincemeat of that Warrington defence. He had so many auctions to

:28:11.:28:16.

pass here. He thought he could do the job himself -- so many auctions.

:28:16.:28:20.

Stopped in the end but it was all academic because right at the last,

:28:20.:28:26.

Carmont with a wonderful pass here and Richards with the score.

:28:26.:28:32.

Tomkins steps out of the way. The ball is back on the inside. Grasped

:28:32.:28:37.

by Finch out of thin air. Flower. Morley holds him down. A penalty

:28:37.:28:44.

has been given! Too much interference from Adrian Morley. He

:28:44.:28:49.

hung on when he should have been dropping off. So Wigan have made

:28:49.:28:59.
:28:59.:29:12.

the decision to go for two here. half. -- Lima. It has been

:29:12.:29:17.

intercepted, Lee Briers, ever the magician. It is a saunter to the

:29:17.:29:24.

try-line for Lee Briers. Leuluai trying to get back, but he really

:29:24.:29:30.

committed himself here, Briers. He read the situation perfectly. The

:29:30.:29:38.

veteran Welshman snaps it up and runs away. Warrington right back in

:29:38.:29:48.
:29:48.:29:57.

possession and a penalty has been given, a rather obvious penalty as

:29:57.:30:03.

well. Clearly more than one man in the tackle and he simply got over

:30:03.:30:11.

Looking for his second success of the night to give Wigan the lead

:30:11.:30:21.
:30:21.:30:32.

once more. Finding his form with the penalty has been given. It was

:30:32.:30:42.
:30:42.:31:03.

the tackle had been completed. He came in and arrested the man in

:31:03.:31:13.
:31:13.:31:33.

The match was described as absolutely enthralling, but a

:31:33.:31:38.

complete match. Was that fair? would agree with that. It was

:31:38.:31:42.

compelling to watch. Everybody loved watching it, but you have to

:31:42.:31:45.

say the ball-handling from both sides was not great. There were a

:31:45.:31:49.

lot of penalties and drop balls. Even though both sides were not

:31:49.:31:54.

great, it was a reasonable game to watch. In the end it was penalties

:31:54.:32:04.
:32:04.:32:04.

That was his first game back and what a kicker he is. He is free

:32:04.:32:10.

call under pressure. That was the difference, the goal-kicking.

:32:10.:32:15.

want to defend him on the one that is coming up. There are a few fists

:32:15.:32:19.

flying in and they were busy on the reports this week. What do you

:32:19.:32:25.

reckon? It looks terrible on TV, but when you have two players in a

:32:26.:32:31.

tackle like that, you find that it is the guy on the other end the

:32:31.:32:35.

swings around. The only thing you can really do... It would have

:32:35.:32:39.

looked worse if he had followed through with it. You can see that

:32:39.:32:45.

he let go. There is also their ability -- responsibility of the

:32:45.:32:47.

defender to make sure that no-one is put into that sort of dangerous

:32:47.:32:57.
:32:57.:32:59.

Fair to say you guys are doing it up at the moment. We are. We are

:32:59.:33:03.

not playing great to be fair. We set ourselves some very high

:33:03.:33:07.

standards last year. We are dropping too much ball. It is

:33:07.:33:12.

something we had spoken about and addressed. We are hoping we tied in

:33:12.:33:22.
:33:22.:33:23.

a few things up. There's a lot more As big games are coming thick and

:33:23.:33:28.

fast. Wigan last weekend and then we have St Helens this weekend. It

:33:28.:33:33.

will be interesting to see how we go. What you make about Wigan? They

:33:33.:33:41.

have already lost three this year. What the coach pulled over to begin

:33:41.:33:47.

was a new system to the lead. It was very direct and in-your-face.

:33:47.:33:50.

The defence has had a couple of years to look at what they do and

:33:50.:33:56.

how they deliver it. Look at a key individuals and target them. Sam

:33:56.:34:02.

Tomkins is a big indicator as to where the ball is going. They are

:34:02.:34:08.

able to deal with it a little bit better this time. All teams are

:34:08.:34:14.

having the control in the ruck. should give backbenchers -- Pat

:34:14.:34:21.

Richards a mention. He passed 2000 points. Sensational for a winner. I

:34:21.:34:24.

like to call the muscly linesman because you have these guys in the

:34:24.:34:27.

middle of the bark that a doing all this work India the pretty boys out

on the edge. I thought you were the pretty boys in the middle? Pack

:34:51.:34:54.

work, but his great with the boot if it had been eight football match,

:34:54.:34:59.

it would have been called a six- pointer. A huge win. A classic case

:34:59.:35:09.

They have been working really hard. They go the win a couple of weeks

:35:09.:35:14.

ago against Wigan. This proves they are not just a one-game team. They

in get a couple of wins on the board. A very this can be the

springboard for them to get the confidence to win a few more.

:35:27.:35:33.

reports. He played a couple of games for us last year and that a

:35:34.:35:40.

bad be injury, but now he is fit and ready to go. The club thought

:35:40.:35:44.

it would be good for him to go elsewhere and get game time. He has

:35:44.:35:48.

been absolutely sensational. The club rate him very highly. This

:35:48.:35:52.

would do in the world of good, getting a bit of experience in the

:35:52.:36:01.

Super League. What you make of London though it? They played

:36:01.:36:06.

bravely against Wigan. By the looks of it, one of the things they need

:36:06.:36:09.

to do is they do not seem to have a problem scoring tries, it is the

:36:09.:36:19.
:36:19.:36:23.

defending they have a problem with. You can see it happen where markers

forward and nowhere has the Sunday shining brighter than at the

are in wake filed as the Wildcats phase one of the biggest challenges

:37:37.:37:42.

of the season so far. The aim of the game is to complete a

Hang on, I think we have found out Well, what a time of. Unbelievable.

:38:35.:38:43.

No penalties. Fantastic from the Wakefield wild cards. 41.93 seconds.

:38:43.:38:49.

As Good As It gets. They are on top of the leaderboard. Have you seen

:38:49.:38:53.

anything like that before? Surely no-one can be thrown them after

:38:53.:39:03.
:39:03.:39:07.

Anything you buy to add to that? do not think I can. I think re-

:39:07.:39:12.

enacting Baywatch is clearly the way to win the next week. It is all

:39:12.:39:19.

about consistency. That is what we were looking for from them. They

:39:19.:39:24.

were back with a win this week. final game to complete the

:39:24.:39:32.

weekend's highlights, breadth and - - Bradford welcome Salford. I think

:39:32.:39:38.

we got will drop last week so there was a bit of soul-searching during

:39:38.:39:45.

the week. Probably disappointing for Bradford at who were winning

:39:45.:39:52.

early on. I was with them on Friday evening. He was talking about what

:39:53.:39:56.

he was trying to get out of the players. I think he will be really

:39:56.:40:00.

disappointed with that. Bradford are doing it really hard. They have

:40:00.:40:06.

13 players out with injuries. After their performance last week against

:40:06.:40:10.

St Helens and how they had been performing over the recent past, I

:40:10.:40:13.

think we would have been looking for a lot more consistency than

:40:13.:40:18.

what was on offer. Talking about players being back. This one is

:40:18.:40:26.

back. He looks good. It was unfortunate he got the injury, but

:40:26.:40:33.

looking at this game there is a couple of tries. They are

:40:33.:40:40.

entertaining. He looks like a terrific signing. They are in the

:40:40.:40:44.

right half of the table, they just need to stay there. You live in the

:40:44.:40:49.

area, how important is it too had suffered doing well? I always keep

:40:49.:40:53.

a lookout for them to do well. I went to check out the new stadium

:40:53.:40:58.

last weekend. It is absolute the fantastic. If they can get a

:40:58.:41:03.

successful team, the crowds will flock there and it will be a

:41:03.:41:09.

vibrant rugby league city. Robbie, what you make of the performance

:41:09.:41:13.

though? Just in terms of their defence. They seemed to lose it

:41:13.:41:19.

again. They seem to be falling away. It was interesting to see that they

:41:19.:41:23.

are creating a very basic sort of system. The coach has had to do

:41:23.:41:28.

that because the players are dropping left, right and centre.

:41:28.:41:33.

They are having to glue a very simple game plan together with each

:41:33.:41:43.

A big win for Salford, let's see where the city Reds and everyone

:41:43.:41:52.

Changes at the top and the bottom this weekend. Warrington had moved

:41:52.:41:57.

back to the summer after their win against Wigan. Hulme of up to third

of at the weekend because the Super League action is all on Friday and

:42:10.:42:15.

Saturday. Leeds meet Huddersfield. Wigan make the short trip to

:42:15.:42:23.

Salford. And the newly revived St Helens are away to Warrington.

:42:23.:42:30.

Saints for you next weekend. Paddy prepare for a game like that?

:42:30.:42:33.

are the games that you don't need much preparation for. They take

:42:33.:42:38.

care of themselves. We will do everything that we normally do. The

:42:38.:42:42.

fact that it is one of the biggest games on the calendar will be

:42:42.:42:48.

pretty exciting. You could not scripted any better. They had been

:42:48.:42:52.

up and down. They are up at the moment and we are top of the table

:42:52.:42:58.

so it should be a classic. We are all looking forward to it. That's
