start of the play-offs, there are all sorts of issues to be decided.

:00:32.:00:35.

We'll find out how all the clubs are shaping up, and for some forward

:00:35.:00:44.

thinking we have two from the top. It has been a big weekend for the

:00:44.:00:49.

leading clubs. Here is what is coming up.

:00:49.:00:57.

The men in black top of the bill. It is first against second. Salford are

:00:57.:01:03.

already alert for the visit of champions Leeds. And when push comes

:01:03.:01:13.
:01:13.:01:14.

to shove, the fight for bragging Just one point separated the top

:01:14.:01:18.

three teams in Super League at the start of the weekend. The race for

:01:18.:01:22.

the League Leaders Shield has rarely been this tight, but was likely to

:01:22.:01:25.

loosen a little on Friday when the top two, Huddersfield and Wigan,

:01:25.:01:34.

went head to head. Dave Woods was a long way to determining who

:01:34.:01:38.

finishes top of the table in 2013. Andy Gregory with the Huddersfield

:01:38.:01:42.

Giants of today, and some of the great names in Wigan's history

:01:42.:01:45.

providing the guard of honour for the Wigan stars of today, hoping to

:01:45.:01:54.

reclaim that top spot in the Super League table. A very good crowd here

:01:54.:02:04.
:02:04.:02:12.

today as well. Wigan, without three Huddersfield. Their staying power

:02:13.:02:15.

questioned all season but close to the finishing line, they are still

:02:15.:02:25.
:02:25.:02:46.

but they are being tested, they are look. Little doubt that he prevented

:02:46.:02:56.
:02:56.:03:09.

the touchdown from there on in. It dropped on by Sam Powell. They are

:03:09.:03:13.

going to have a look again. The video referee called into action.

:03:13.:03:19.

The first question is offside, but Josh Charnley seems to be onside. If

:03:19.:03:23.

he touched it, it went backwards. It might have come off a Huddersfield

:03:23.:03:26.

hand, Powell can't believe his luck, with a solid enough touchdown, that

:03:26.:03:36.
:03:36.:04:13.

is confirmed, Wigan have the opening are going to have to wait. Offside

:04:13.:04:19.

is the question again. Murphy is quite clearly on. It is a clean

:04:19.:04:23.

enough catch and pick up, and a clean enough touchdown. It will be

:04:23.:04:33.
:04:33.:04:52.

Josh Charnley scoots away for an absolutely fabulous try! He has

:04:52.:04:56.

scored plenty this season and plenty of those have been at the end of

:04:56.:05:03.

some fantastic work on the inside. This was all down to his skills, his

:05:03.:05:06.

powers of evasion and his speed at the end for a very memorable

:05:06.:05:16.
:05:16.:05:18.

touchdown. And they love it. He would have been proud of that, Billy

:05:18.:05:28.
:05:28.:05:36.

A little bit of entanglement. It will be a penalty for Huddersfield

:05:36.:05:46.
:05:46.:06:11.

here. He has to roll away, but the might of those Wigan defenders,

:06:11.:06:21.
:06:21.:06:43.

claim it! And it is given. Sheer determination from the second row

:06:44.:06:53.
:06:54.:06:54.

forward. Robinson involved, it might have been a forward pass, you know.

:06:54.:06:59.

Have a look again at this. It is not going to alter the decision, it is a

:06:59.:07:09.
:07:09.:07:28.

forward pass, but Ferris did not in the ascendancy now. Well, he had

:07:28.:07:32.

to try something creative here. The original creative kit came to

:07:32.:07:42.
:07:42.:07:53.

naught, but he caught it and scored concede another try, you would have

:07:53.:08:03.
:08:03.:08:08.

efforts of Josh Charnley, he has got it down, and the try is scored in

:08:08.:08:18.
:08:18.:08:32.

the end. It took some determination, attracting two defenders to him.

:08:32.:08:42.
:08:42.:09:01.

and claims the score. The referee again is asking the video referee to

:09:01.:09:07.

have a look at this. Does he have control of the ball as he reaches

:09:07.:09:11.

out over the line or has it come loose? It might have come loose. And

:09:11.:09:15.

it is no try. It is the Huddersfield supporters who have their moment of

:09:15.:09:25.
:09:25.:09:46.

can see that it was. There has been some controversy, about shoulder

:09:46.:09:54.

charges. Paul Anderson says, let's go for the two. It is just a matter

:09:54.:10:03.

of eating of these extra seconds. It has been a fabulous night for the

:10:03.:10:13.
:10:13.:10:13.

Huddersfield Giants. Stand up for the league leaders!

:10:13.:10:17.

Wigan, with a lot of yards to cover, but they are already celebrating

:10:17.:10:22.

here. I think that will be the last act, I don't think they will have

:10:22.:10:26.

time. The hooter sounds, and Huddersfield Giants with a huge

:10:26.:10:36.
:10:36.:10:46.

scalp. That might be one hand on the confidence, that you can come

:10:46.:10:52.

through, against a team like Wigan? It was pretty big for us, we have

:10:52.:10:56.

been in some big games this season I am sat next to a good friend of

:10:56.:11:01.

mine. They always get a number on us, it is disappointing. We knew we

:11:01.:11:04.

had to deliver in this game and change our mentality to give

:11:04.:11:11.

ourselves a chance and fortunately for us, we stood up on Friday night.

:11:11.:11:17.

Was there some talking after the Challenge Cup defeat? We went into

:11:17.:11:22.

the game knowing that if we went into the right things, we would have

:11:22.:11:25.

a chance but when we went into it, it all went out of the window. A

:11:25.:11:32.

little bit of inexperience, we got the lead around. -- we got bullied

:11:32.:11:35.

around. That is what was disappointed, we knew we had to

:11:35.:11:39.

change our mentality to get through this game and we showed our intent

:11:39.:11:42.

from the kick-off. We knew we were going to give them a game

:11:42.:11:46.

straightaway and after half-time we could see getting closer and closer.

:11:46.:11:49.

You looked like you were enjoying yourselves out there, there were

:11:49.:11:59.
:11:59.:12:00.

some nice tries. Some fantastic players, that is the good thing.

:12:00.:12:04.

Even when Danny isn't putting in the best kicks, Scott comes up with

:12:04.:12:08.

something magical. He was my man of the match by a long stretch. And

:12:08.:12:12.

Aaron Murphy, he does well to finish this. You thought he would get

:12:12.:12:22.
:12:22.:12:28.

dragged over, but he didn't. Wigan had key names missing. They have

:12:28.:12:33.

lost a few games of late. The last years, they have been the most

:12:33.:12:39.

consistent side. I do not think there is any panic, it was a case of

:12:39.:12:45.

Huddersfield playing well on the night. He will get his superstars

:12:46.:12:52.

back soon. They will be a force to be reckoned with. Josh Charnley,

:12:52.:13:01.

30th try of the season. His ratio of tries per games is incredible. This

:13:01.:13:11.

try, not many players could have scored this. Evasion. There was a

:13:11.:13:21.
:13:21.:13:31.

nice swan dive. When you play them, you have to keep an eye on him.

:13:31.:13:36.

Looking good for the World Cup? was fantastic. The Super League

:13:36.:13:39.

season, it has been especially good with youngsters coming through with

:13:39.:13:43.

people stepping on to the mark. Putting their name forward for the

:13:43.:13:46.

World Cup. It is exciting to see. And for the rest of the regular

:13:46.:13:50.

season, focusing on each game and to get the shield. We have been going

:13:50.:13:55.

one game at a time. We have three tough games now. History will prove

:13:55.:14:00.

these are the games we would lose. People are waiting for us to taper

:14:01.:14:07.

off. We have not done it yet, we do not intend to. It is in an our

:14:07.:14:12.

hands, the League Leaders Shield. We have not achieved anything that we

:14:12.:14:16.

would have liked to have done, and we are desperate for that. Plenty of

:14:16.:14:18.

attention then on Wigan and Huddersfield, but Warrington

:14:18.:14:21.

continue to breathe right down the necks of the top two, you played

:14:21.:14:24.

Wakefield on Saturday. You played Wakefield, what was your

:14:24.:14:34.
:14:34.:14:36.

verdict? Scrappy. It showed in the performance when Garth pulled out.

:14:36.:14:44.

We were lucky to go in at half-time winning. We just did enough. We did

:14:44.:14:54.
:14:54.:14:56.

not really excel. I don't either coach was particularly happy. It was

:14:56.:15:00.

two points. We keep the pressure on Huddersfield. We would like the

:15:00.:15:03.

shield ourselves. It is great Huddersfield are there. Not just the

:15:03.:15:08.

usual suspects. We would like to overtake them, but it is great they

:15:08.:15:16.

are there. What did you make of Wakefield? They needed to win. They

:15:16.:15:24.

had a good run. Last year, they timed their runs great. This year,

:15:24.:15:28.

it looked like it would be the same with the play-offs. Being pipped by

:15:28.:15:32.

two points here and four points there. It is a tough place to go to

:15:32.:15:42.
:15:42.:15:44.

Warrington, and get a result. have got your own superstar winger.

:15:44.:15:47.

His tries ratio to games is fantastic. Two He has signed an

:15:47.:15:54.

extension. Wakefield, I think their season has gone in terms of making

:15:54.:16:04.
:16:04.:16:12.

the play-offs. A few injured. Should everybody be back soon? He had a

:16:12.:16:17.

recurrence of his knee problem. It does not look good for him, Richard.

:16:17.:16:21.

I should be back, this Thursday would be too soon, but the week

:16:21.:16:25.

after Wembley. I think Ryan Atkins is back at the same time. We are

:16:25.:16:31.

looking healthy and good at the moment.

:16:31.:16:36.

So it continues to be tight at the top, but let's find out how the rest

:16:36.:16:45.

of the Super League Clubs got on at play-off points with a Hull derby at

:16:45.:16:49.

Craven Park. It is friends reunited at Salford. Could they produce a

:16:49.:16:55.

Super League surprise? And the best of the rest. Tries and more besides

:16:55.:17:05.
:17:05.:17:05.

Back to back wins against Hull and Wakefield had pulled Bradford to

:17:05.:17:08.

within striking distance of the play-off places. The Bulls were

:17:08.:17:11.

looking for a third consecutive victory when Catalan were there on

:17:11.:17:15.

Sunday, and they got off to a flying start. They got off to a flyer. This

:17:16.:17:20.

is a strange game. You expect Bradford Bulls to come away with a

:17:20.:17:23.

victory because Catalan have been so poor recently. Playing against

:17:23.:17:32.

ourselves, they seemed at sea. They were not cohesive. They did not seem

:17:32.:17:37.

to have the passion. Bradford, 18-4 at half-time, which is ridiculous.

:17:37.:17:41.

There should be no getting back from there, but Catalans put in decent

:17:41.:17:51.
:17:51.:17:54.

performances and got tries and got confidence. Scoring lovely tries.

:17:54.:17:57.

They looked comfortable, in charge, but they seem to switch off. Right

:17:58.:18:06.

at the end of the game. Catalan came back into it. Leon Pryce showing

:18:06.:18:16.
:18:16.:18:20.

skill. Webb coming back. Bradford looked in control. It looked like

:18:20.:18:27.

they would go on to win it. It is a great result. When you look at

:18:27.:18:31.

Catalan and their form, and did you think they could come back? They are

:18:31.:18:38.

not in great form. This sport is about momentum and form and the way

:18:38.:18:42.

they came back, being beaten by the scoreline, it was a fantastic

:18:42.:18:52.
:18:52.:18:55.

achievement and it will give them hope to get back to that. It was

:18:55.:18:59.

D-day for the Hull clubs who met for the third time this season, with one

:18:59.:19:03.

win apiece from their two meetings so far. The Black and Whites are

:19:03.:19:06.

heading to Wembley of course, but could they keep up with their local

:19:06.:19:16.
:19:16.:19:23.

rivals in the play-off race? Dave going at each other's throats for

:19:23.:19:33.
:19:33.:19:49.

a punch up before this match and it is threatening to boil over here.

:19:49.:19:59.
:19:59.:20:00.

The referee has control. Just. Some self-policing going on. This is the

:20:00.:20:10.
:20:10.:20:17.

the advertising hoardings went over. It is a yellow card and Hodgson is

:20:17.:20:27.
:20:27.:20:56.

sin-binned. Both sides down to 12. wherewithal to catch it again.

:20:57.:21:06.
:21:07.:21:32.

the advantage play. Briscoe gets under way. That was a good off-load.

:21:32.:21:42.
:21:42.:21:53.

Miller reaches. He will claim the Arundel picked it up cleanly. It

:21:53.:22:03.
:22:03.:22:34.

getting their name on the decided a penalty to Hull Kingston

:22:34.:22:44.
:22:44.:22:48.

Rovers. They go for the two points. A chance for Dobson. A half-time

:22:48.:22:58.
:22:58.:23:34.

referee is looking for the potential penalty try. That went backwards. He

:23:35.:23:43.

grabbed hold. Did he stop him scoring a certain try? The referee

:23:43.:23:53.
:23:53.:23:55.

has given a penalty try. Without doubt, he tackled a man without the

:23:55.:24:05.
:24:05.:24:12.

Intercepted by Whiting. He is not blessed with the greatest speed. He

:24:12.:24:22.
:24:22.:24:28.

has found support. Shaul scores. The length of the field. The second try

:24:28.:24:33.

in six minutes. They seem to have grabbed the game by the scruff of

:24:33.:24:43.
:24:43.:25:02.

Arundel, he went on the inside between two defenders. Hull Kingston

:25:02.:25:09.

Rovers have not had their hands on the ball. Between these two scores.

:25:09.:25:12.

In the space of those minutes, surely putting themselves well in

:25:12.:25:22.
:25:22.:25:36.

Walker. Over the line. They are not giving up. There is a hint of a

:25:36.:25:46.
:25:46.:25:50.

possibility of Hull Kingston Rovers They claimed it was forward.

:25:50.:26:00.
:26:00.:26:01.

Whiting. His 200th Super League appearance today. That will not

:26:02.:26:11.
:26:12.:26:44.

please the Hull Kingston Rovers touches down. The grounding was

:26:44.:26:54.
:26:54.:26:59.

fine. He is clearly onside. And the try is given.

:26:59.:27:09.
:27:09.:27:32.

It has not been their day, Hull The last seconds of the game. But

:27:32.:27:42.
:27:42.:27:43.

Travis Burns is sin-binned. The hooter has sounded. The final

:27:43.:27:53.
:27:53.:28:02.

successful kick. That was a Hull FC lip -- leapfrog their

:28:02.:28:12.
:28:12.:28:13.

result like that? We spoke about momentum and form and it was

:28:13.:28:15.

important they put in good performances before Wembley. That

:28:15.:28:25.
:28:25.:28:27.

will have done their confidence good to beat a team of that quality.

:28:27.:28:37.
:28:37.:28:38.

the downside, it looked like a nasty injury for Tom Lynam. He has been a

:28:38.:28:44.

shining light and one of the standout players in super league. It

:28:44.:28:48.

is a shame to see him pick up a knock like that. I think that game

:28:48.:28:51.

lacked a bit of intensity. Those fights, really most intense part of

:28:51.:28:57.

them. Hull KR have picked up the odd injury, how do you see them towards

:28:57.:29:04.

the end of the season? They are very dangerous still. They are not a team

:29:04.:29:08.

with strength in depth so when you do get players injured, it they do

:29:08.:29:14.

struggle. When they get the full quota on the field fit and healthy

:29:14.:29:19.

they are a match for anyone. They beat us this year, whoever gets them

:29:19.:29:26.

will be in for a tough game. You have to go back to the 27th of

:29:26.:29:29.

April for the last time London celebrated a Super League win, that

:29:29.:29:34.

was against St Helens at the Stoop. It was the return fixture on Friday,

:29:34.:29:40.

and a different result this time. I thought after their humiliating

:29:40.:29:43.

defeat in the Challenge Cup semifinal, they showed a real

:29:43.:29:53.
:29:53.:29:54.

improved performance against Leeds now, some of the form throughout the

:29:54.:30:02.

year, this is a bit of a result for London, really. But they are

:30:02.:30:06.

struggling at the minute, struggling to compete with teams, it is not the

:30:06.:30:10.

end of the world for them but they will want to be finishing the season

:30:10.:30:16.

with a lot more pride in their jersey. Saints almost going under

:30:16.:30:23.

the radar with all the problems they had, beginning to play really well.

:30:23.:30:26.

They have won six or seven on the bounce now, people aren't talking

:30:26.:30:29.

about them but they seem to have brought the youngsters through, they

:30:29.:30:33.

have persevered with them, there are so many injuries but they have made

:30:33.:30:37.

sure they get the lads into the team nice and early, get a bit of

:30:37.:30:40.

experience and coming into the back end, they are looking pretty

:30:40.:30:50.

dangerous. They are a threat to anyone. We have a new team-mate of

:30:50.:30:53.

yours coming up in a minute, he has been a fantastic winger, Francis

:30:53.:31:01.

Meli. Fantastic winger, very strong, he will be a great asset to the

:31:01.:31:11.
:31:11.:31:14.

than a trip to Greater Manchester. Not only have the Champions made Old

:31:14.:31:17.

Trafford their second home in recent seasons, but they've not lost at

:31:17.:31:21.

Salford for 20 years. The City Reds are expecting some big changes over

:31:21.:31:25.

the winter, but with two home games to go, were hoping to go out with a

:31:25.:31:29.

bang in 2013. There have been a lot of good things happening off the

:31:29.:31:32.

field and particularly on it, we struggled last week but in the

:31:32.:31:35.

second half, some really positive signs.

:31:35.:31:38.

Our form hasn't been that bad, we snatched defeat from the jaws of

:31:38.:31:47.

victory once, but some of the pennies are starting to drop.

:31:47.:31:51.

Considering the team we were left with after the players left, we have

:31:51.:31:54.

had an average season, I think. We can't talk on next season yet

:31:54.:31:58.

because they're not letting us know until after the last game who they

:31:58.:32:04.

are signing for next year. We have announced the signing of

:32:04.:32:07.

three quality players, we have already signed four more, and I'm

:32:07.:32:13.

looking forward to signing. We are in the process of chasing three

:32:13.:32:16.

world-class players, should I get one or two of them, anything is

:32:16.:32:24.

possible. What comes in, comes in. There is no

:32:24.:32:28.

point trying to bust your salary cap, because it can't be done on two

:32:28.:32:37.

players. Experience with youth makes a good match.

:32:37.:32:45.

I think we're going in the right direction now, definitely.

:32:45.:32:49.

I think the injuries we have had, the young lads we have, we have done

:32:49.:32:53.

brilliantly. It is looking good for the future, there are good lads

:32:53.:32:58.

coming through. Make one or two signings for next year and we will

:32:58.:33:02.

finish top. The young ones are good, they are

:33:02.:33:06.

going to give the older ones are run for their money but there are still

:33:06.:33:10.

a lot of life left. We are playing a champion team

:33:10.:33:14.

tonight, they turn up at the right times of the year, they have some

:33:14.:33:17.

real quality around their best players, a slightly different

:33:17.:33:24.

challenge to the Catalan challenge. We are looking forward to it.

:33:24.:33:27.

It was a landmark evening for Kevin Sinfield, making his 400th Super

:33:27.:33:37.
:33:37.:33:50.

Leeds are through with Sutcliffe. He dummies to his left, passes to

:33:50.:33:53.

Watkins who will score on the left-hand side, right in the corner.

:33:53.:34:03.
:34:03.:34:06.

Great try for the Leeds Rhinos. Leeds upped a gear and went ahead.

on an error to give the home fans hope. However, Leeds responded with

a trademark try. Borrow with the try, half an hour.

He was at the centre of things again before half-time, giving the score a

one-sided look that didn't reflect Salford's battling performance. He

scores the first try of the second half for the Leeds Rhinos. They are

definitely going to win this one now. Salford kept going and got some

thought we completed the long periods and were threatening

puts a lopsided effect on the scoreline. We made the gap probably

:37:08.:37:13.

a bit bigger than I thought it should have been on the night.

:37:13.:37:18.

The most pleasing thing for me was our defence. We had to repel a fair

:37:18.:37:21.

amount of Salford's attack, they can score some tries, I thought some of

:37:21.:37:24.

their players were pretty good, and Gaskell at the back terrorises a

:37:24.:37:31.

bit. We had to come up with the goods defensively. When asked those

:37:31.:37:35.

questions, we had to come up with some stuff offensively. That is

:37:35.:37:39.

where we fell down a bit. Some well worked tries, some athletic tries as

:37:39.:37:43.

well, some of our athletes get given the ball in some areas of the field,

:37:43.:37:52.

they come up with special stuff. We can't rely on that. I like to think

:37:52.:37:56.

we would come up with one or two of those towards the back end of the

:37:57.:38:06.
:38:07.:38:19.

year. If we can come up with them in home for next season? No, I didn't.

:38:19.:38:23.

It has been a dream of mine to represent my hometown as a

:38:23.:38:26.

professional. I didn't think it was going to happen in my career but the

:38:26.:38:32.

timing was right, I have the opportunity next year so I'm

:38:32.:38:34.

excited. It must be exciting hearing the names that are being linked with

:38:34.:38:37.

the club. They will be very competitive next year. I still have

:38:37.:38:40.

a couple of commitments, but when I have played my final game, I am sure

:38:40.:38:44.

I will get really excited. You are one of the names I haven't heard

:38:44.:38:48.

linked? I think he has lost my number! I sure he has it locked away

:38:48.:38:52.

somewhere. Is it exciting seeing a club building? Super League could do

:38:52.:39:02.
:39:02.:39:03.

with Salford being a stronghold again. It is very similar to

:39:03.:39:06.

Warrington's turnaround, when they got the new stadium, they got

:39:06.:39:09.

increased attendances, they are a powerhouse now, so Salford could be

:39:09.:39:14.

the next Warrington, but everything is all set up. It just needs a

:39:14.:39:17.

competitive team, I am sure the spectators will come back and it

:39:17.:39:25.

could be anything. Finally this week it's Widnes

:39:25.:39:28.

against Castleford, not a huge amount to play for in this one, but

:39:28.:39:33.

plenty of tries. Not one for people who are experts in different! --

:39:33.:39:43.
:39:43.:39:47.

People falling off tackles, not the prettiest game in the world. That

:39:47.:39:51.

was disappointing, but it is good to see a few decent tries along the

:39:51.:39:54.

way. But it just seems like it is last-ditch efforts, they weren't

:39:54.:40:00.

interested in them. Not having relegations, there is not that much

:40:00.:40:04.

to fight for, and teams are a little bit too happy for my liking just to

:40:04.:40:13.

get through the games and not put too much emphasis on it. You want

:40:13.:40:17.

intense games throughout the season, to make it really interesting. You

:40:17.:40:24.

want to see teams battling for everything. Work on defence is going

:40:24.:40:31.

to be crucial, you can't lose this many tries. I don't need to be too

:40:31.:40:34.

disrespectful, because both sides haven't got much to fight for, but

:40:34.:40:44.

you would expect a little bit better from both teams. If you haven't got

:40:44.:40:47.

anything, then what is the point? Next year, if you want to achieve

:40:47.:40:51.

something, defences can't be like this.

:40:51.:40:56.

Gareth Hock is a player who is exceptional on his day. World-class

:40:56.:41:00.

player. He has had his troubles over the past few years, but when the

:41:00.:41:04.

performance is like this, you have to say he will have to be in Steve

:41:04.:41:12.

McNamara's plans. Whenever he has played he has been outstanding.

:41:12.:41:22.
:41:22.:41:23.

Widnes got themselves back in front. Dennis Best said they crumbled

:41:23.:41:27.

mentally. To score 38, you think that be enough to win any game, but

:41:27.:41:34.

it has been their problem all year. -- you think that would be enough.

:41:34.:41:37.

They can score points but they also let in a lot, same with Castleford,

:41:37.:41:40.

really. They can score points, but they have been letting into many

:41:40.:41:43.

themselves. It wasn't a classic game in terms of the defensive efforts by

:41:43.:41:47.

some great tries on show and some good skill. And Widnes have a

:41:47.:41:52.

turnaround for Thursday night as well. You would like to think this

:41:52.:41:55.

one would be a bit tighter. Warrington will be expecting to come

:41:55.:41:58.

away with a victory, you can't blame them, especially after seeing

:41:58.:42:02.

performances like this, but this is where it can be troublesome, where

:42:02.:42:06.

you think you have got a team who come up with a team who make it

:42:06.:42:14.

difficult for you. Sometimes the lower teams cause you trouble. I'm

:42:14.:42:24.
:42:24.:42:24.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 47 seconds

:42:24.:43:09.

Salford but you have been linked with going down under, are you

:43:09.:43:13.

going? Not yet, although the sunshine does sound appealing. I

:43:14.:43:21.

have a couple of years at Huddersfield. Would it appeal to

:43:21.:43:25.

you? It would appeal to any Super League player, a rugby player, these

are the things you want to do, it is about life experience and why not?
