If you've enjoyed your Sunday lunch then hopefully you've

:00:37.:00:39.

still got room to digest the highlights from the biggest

:00:40.:00:42.

It's the time of the year when local rivals get together

:00:43.:00:46.

# In a neighbourhood like this, you know it's hard to survive

:00:47.:01:17.

# So you better come prepared as they won't take us alive

:01:18.:01:23.

# In my beautiful neighbourhood # My neighbourhood

:01:32.:01:36.

neighbours in the studio this week. Brian Noble is alongside

:01:37.:01:39.

Robbie Hunter-Paul, both multiple Wigan and St Helens have been

:01:40.:01:41.

the best of enemies since 1895. They've met more than 300 times,

:01:42.:01:48.

and watching their latest encounter Always a real intensity to this

:01:49.:02:06.

fixture, isn't there Wigan boosted by the return of their captain.

:02:07.:02:14.

Jamahl Lolesi in temporary charge of St Helens after the sacking of

:02:15.:02:17.

Keiron Cunningham. And a huge crowd of well over 20,000. That's the

:02:18.:02:25.

kick. Marshall underneath it and safely caught. A high connection

:02:26.:02:32.

there from Kyle a more. Didn't look good at all. You look at that angle

:02:33.:02:40.

and he seems to start around the chest. It's a red card! 11 minutes

:02:41.:02:47.

played, just over, and Kyle Amor is sent off.

:02:48.:02:55.

St Helens in prime position now. Wigan's defence good. The referee

:02:56.:03:18.

has given a penalty here for the tackle of the ball. Mark Percival

:03:19.:03:27.

looking to give us the first points of the Good Friday derby game. The

:03:28.:03:35.

80 minute pence -- the 18 minute penalty gives Saints the lead.

:03:36.:03:49.

A pile-up in pursuit of the lovely grubber kick. Burges reclaims it.

:03:50.:03:59.

What does the referee think? Going to the video replay. He thinks it is

:04:00.:04:08.

a try. Burges was in there. I think he just about got there first. Wigan

:04:09.:04:16.

in the lead for the first time. A big draw for McIlorum when he came

:04:17.:04:34.

onto the field from the bench after that long absence. A penalty. They

:04:35.:04:43.

turned down one opportunity to go for two points with a penalty

:04:44.:04:47.

directly under the sticks. This time they go for goal. Lolesi in

:04:48.:04:54.

conversation with Sean Long, as Wigan take a 6-point lead.

:04:55.:05:04.

A wonderful little step by Reagan Grace. -- Regan Grace. The youngster

:05:05.:05:15.

is having a marvellous game, Regan Grace, in this, his debut. He has

:05:16.:05:21.

helped set a wonderful position for St Helens.

:05:22.:05:46.

He's got the try. St Helens are right back in this now. What a start

:05:47.:05:50.

to the second half. Just flailing hand slap at Lee

:05:51.:06:24.

Marshall. In for the try. A quick response by Wigan. They have the

:06:25.:06:26.

lead again. Escare goes for the one point here.

:06:27.:06:54.

Not a bad thing to do. A 7-point lead now.

:06:55.:07:13.

The youngster strikes! In the fabulous fashion. Regan Grace. He is

:07:14.:07:24.

having a debut to remember. The Saints fans are loving his input

:07:25.:07:32.

into this game. That's a terrific finish. His name is being taunted by

:07:33.:07:38.

the St Helens fans. What a way to start. But there's a moment he will

:07:39.:07:44.

want to forget. He might have scored a try at one end, but his mistake

:07:45.:07:51.

here has given Wigan possession back close to the Saints line.

:07:52.:08:08.

Wigan are a little loose, a little untidy. But they had numbers, and

:08:09.:08:17.

Farrell used that fact to dummy his way across. Liam Farrell and Wigan

:08:18.:08:21.

establishing authority again. Marshall for the corner,

:08:22.:08:38.

acrobatically! There has to be a second look at that, because it was

:08:39.:08:44.

too tight for the human eye. Has Liam Marshall scored his second of

:08:45.:08:49.

the game? He thinks he might have done. Oh, my word. The feet are on

:08:50.:08:58.

the ground, are they? Did the left foot go down or did the ball touched

:08:59.:09:03.

down first? So close, but I think the ball wins it. The try is given.

:09:04.:09:08.

What a remarkable finish from Liam Marshall.

:09:09.:09:24.

A little grubber by Williams. What a catch by Joe Burgess to finish.

:09:25.:09:43.

Another eye-catching moment in this thrilling derby. They've not given

:09:44.:09:52.

up. Only about eight minutes left to play, and they have to score three

:09:53.:09:57.

times. But there's been a very different attitude from St Helens

:09:58.:10:02.

tonight, certainly from the performance against Huddersfield

:10:03.:10:05.

last week. Trying to create something here, and they have done.

:10:06.:10:12.

Makinson's over. Is that too little, too late? In to the count down.

:10:13.:10:26.

Wigan looking to finish with a flourish there. But it will be

:10:27.:10:38.

Wigan's Good Friday Victor Ruiz. They stopped the rot of that recent

:10:39.:10:40.

run of defeats. An eventful week for St Helens with

:10:41.:10:52.

Keiron Cunningham going. Did you see a different team out there? Jamaal

:10:53.:10:59.

Lolesi is an attacking player and a mindset, and there's no better Super

:11:00.:11:05.

League fan to epitomise attacking than Sean Long, so having those two

:11:06.:11:10.

guys at the helm, trying to breathe life into the team, especially in a

:11:11.:11:17.

home derby. Did you see them regaining their identity? I don't

:11:18.:11:21.

think they've lost their identity, they just haven't been playing well.

:11:22.:11:29.

It gave them a little bit of freedom when it was difficult early in the

:11:30.:11:32.

game for them. They had nothing to lose. I'm not too sure... They have

:11:33.:11:40.

been trying to play that way all week, but that loosening of the

:11:41.:11:45.

strings, a fresh start to difficult circumstances, has had an effect.

:11:46.:11:50.

The red card Abe big talking point of the game. When we saw it at full

:11:51.:11:56.

speed, you both winced a bit. Is it one of those ones where when you see

:11:57.:12:00.

it at full speed, it looks bad, but in slow motion it is different? At

:12:01.:12:07.

full speed it looks bad. That camera shop there clearly sees he tries to

:12:08.:12:14.

hit the ball. Open palm. It comes over the head. Thankfully, Escare

:12:15.:12:18.

isn't injured. It is just one of those situations where the fourth

:12:19.:12:24.

official could have helped him. Would you have liked him to have

:12:25.:12:33.

seen him do that? There's been a lot of pressure on referees lately, with

:12:34.:12:38.

the westward insolent, and Ben Thaler was involved in another

:12:39.:12:44.

incident. At full speed, he could have said, I'm thinking of him, of

:12:45.:12:52.

sending him off, what do you think, and he could have come back and said

:12:53.:12:56.

something else. Nine minutes into the game, all of that atmosphere and

:12:57.:13:00.

energy, there is an argument that could be said that end sailor gets

:13:01.:13:05.

caught up in that emotion. -- Ben Thaler. I would have liked to see it

:13:06.:13:16.

go upstairs, but unless you have been in that situation... It was

:13:17.:13:23.

Liam Marshall carrying the ball, not Escare. Marshall did bounce back up,

:13:24.:13:34.

thankfully. Both him and Regan Grace on his debut were highlights. After

:13:35.:13:38.

taking a shot like that, Marshall went and scored two tries. It is the

:13:39.:13:43.

best rule change we have ever considered. Every week we have

:13:44.:13:53.

something on social media about it. He has worked, he has speed, and he

:13:54.:14:00.

has gone. He took its opportunity. Left foot, right foot... He finishes

:14:01.:14:07.

his try really well. A little error early on, on debut with those

:14:08.:14:12.

nerves. But he could not have wished for a better debut. Wigan didn't

:14:13.:14:19.

know what he could do. They were lazy. They will have to make sure

:14:20.:14:24.

that they will need to treat him like Justin Carney. Get the mindset,

:14:25.:14:30.

and take him to zero. Wigan will be pleased to get the win as they have

:14:31.:14:39.

been on a difficult run. 14 months, did you say. It was great to see

:14:40.:14:46.

McIlorum back out there. Great to see a player who has had injury and

:14:47.:14:51.

strife, and to cope with that for over 12 months... Great to see him

:14:52.:14:53.

back out. The team they're all trying to catch

:14:54.:14:58.

at the moment are Castleford Tigers. They were two points clear

:14:59.:15:01.

at the top of the table heading into Easter,

:15:02.:15:04.

and on Good Friday The commentator for this

:15:05.:15:06.

one is Stuart Pyke. Wakefield in good form,

:15:07.:15:10.

winning five of their last six. They have won their last

:15:11.:15:14.

five against Wakefield. They know how important this game

:15:15.:15:18.

is, even early on in the The former Castleford

:15:19.:15:27.

star, Joe Arundel. The golden rule, never

:15:28.:15:32.

let the ball bounce. Castleford did and

:15:33.:15:46.

they paid the price. Every time they have the ball

:15:47.:15:58.

they were dangerous. The ball goes to

:15:59.:16:01.

the right-hand side. You heard there, possible

:16:02.:16:08.

obstruction on Fifita. Roberts will get

:16:09.:16:34.

Castleford's first try. Another promising position

:16:35.:16:54.

this for the leaders. Roberts scored the first,

:16:55.:17:11.

he has made the second. Very difficult to stop

:17:12.:17:24.

on the goal line. After taking the lead,

:17:25.:17:45.

Wakefield have spent Ball inside from Gale

:17:46.:18:37.

and a second for Millington. Total control against

:18:38.:19:15.

their big rivals. They have managed to hold

:19:16.:19:19.

firm so far in this One of the best wins

:19:20.:19:49.

in their Super League They get the opening

:19:50.:20:06.

try of the second half. In the second half,

:20:07.:20:14.

that is the big surprise. They have restricted Fifita

:20:15.:20:23.

and might get another try. Wonderful athleticism and it is

:20:24.:20:54.

surely a try for Jones-Bishop. Top of the pile, eight

:20:55.:21:11.

wins out of nine. Another incredible tried to end it.

:21:12.:21:33.

They are just fantastic. You often criticise the administrators, but

:21:34.:21:40.

they were awesome. They were indeed. Castleford not at their best, but

:21:41.:21:47.

they won it 42-24 even so. You look at this picture behind us, and there

:21:48.:21:51.

was a lot of joy on their faces. There's something good going on at

:21:52.:21:56.

Castleford at this point in time. It's better to turn up and play

:21:57.:22:00.

badly and win than play well and lose. They are in that sort of form

:22:01.:22:06.

now. I will not say they played completely badly. They still know

:22:07.:22:10.

how to get over the try-line. They had a purple patch in the first half

:22:11.:22:15.

that won them the game. Is that the key? When that purple patch hits,

:22:16.:22:19.

close them down? You've got to be ready for that. They are extremely

:22:20.:22:27.

strong. It's going to take a champion team... The team that can

:22:28.:22:32.

go there and beat them down there is the team that may have the say

:22:33.:22:36.

towards the end of the season. They play an attractive brand. They know

:22:37.:22:40.

what they are doing. When they are on a roll, you may be needed to slow

:22:41.:22:46.

the game down. And playing that ground particularly, you need to

:22:47.:22:53.

hold your nerve. Andy Lynch is now in his second... His 450th

:22:54.:23:06.

appearance. As he's grown longer in the tooth, he has added more to his

:23:07.:23:11.

game. A much smarter player now, great energy, can pass the ball and

:23:12.:23:16.

take the pressure on himself. He would do all right in a number six

:23:17.:23:20.

jumper, although prefers being up front. I think he would book a bit.

:23:21.:23:26.

A frustrating afternoon for Wakefield. It is frustrating as they

:23:27.:23:33.

have been going pretty well. I can only reinforce the local derby

:23:34.:23:38.

aspect. You have to be on your game and prepared for 80 minutes of

:23:39.:23:42.

challenge from this Castleford team. They are on fire.

:23:43.:23:45.

The only team who can match Castleford's form

:23:46.:23:47.

They were at home to Leigh on Friday.

:23:48.:23:51.

Not may points on offer here, Robbie.

:23:52.:23:52.

What's it like playing in a game with so few tries?

:23:53.:23:54.

It was an intense game, as can be expected from a local derby. A very

:23:55.:24:05.

physical game. Leigh turned up. Both teams had key personnel out. Gareth

:24:06.:24:12.

Hock was missing with a one match ban for the Leigh Centurions. Both

:24:13.:24:18.

without key players, but they muscled out. It was a really

:24:19.:24:23.

physical game. The supporters turned out in massive numbers and really

:24:24.:24:27.

enjoyed themselves. Attacking football, but some big hits were

:24:28.:24:32.

going on as well. They will be feeling it come this Monday. And a

:24:33.:24:39.

big improvement for Leigh? It is getting used to that week in, week

:24:40.:24:46.

out Super League competition. In 11 league, some of the team may have

:24:47.:24:52.

had a rest. This top level means you are on the game constantly

:24:53.:24:55.

throughout the season. If you haven't got your best players out

:24:56.:25:02.

there, it becomes a hard game. The type of game that Salford might have

:25:03.:25:06.

lost last year. Is that the difference? They have a culture

:25:07.:25:10.

within the squad where they really enjoy being in each other's company.

:25:11.:25:15.

That translates onto the field. You can see them around the club itself.

:25:16.:25:21.

There is a lot of camaraderie going on. That has been translated into

:25:22.:25:28.

how they play on and the pitch. They play an attractive, advanced Rugby

:25:29.:25:29.

League. You have got over Brian at fullback

:25:30.:25:49.

also. These three guys are pivotal to making the strike happen all over

:25:50.:25:53.

the pitch. You have one when you have Justin Carney there, big

:25:54.:26:00.

strikers on the edges and muscle in the middle of the park.

:26:01.:26:04.

One thing missing from the Easter programme this

:26:05.:26:06.

Fear not though, because we've had a dip into the BBC archives

:26:07.:26:10.

and found one in the 1981 Premiership Final.

:26:11.:26:12.

Eddie Waring was behind the microphone for the final time.

:26:13.:26:22.

They have been playing for 13 minutes.

:26:23.:26:25.

He's stretching the defence. He scores in the corner. A magnificent

:26:26.:27:00.

try. It is a tremendous game and a

:27:01.:27:13.

tremendous crowd. You can see the supporters, still behind the lads. A

:27:14.:27:25.

bit of a push. The referee needs to be in there very quickly. The sixth

:27:26.:27:29.

tackle coming up. He goes on his own. Off he goes, and

:27:30.:27:53.

scores the try. Yes, yes. All the ingredients required. A good try. Is

:27:54.:27:59.

it going to be one of those finishes? Hull are really going into

:28:00.:28:12.

this... Hull Kingston Rovers take the trophy. Some brilliant Rugby

:28:13.:28:16.

League, and what a great advert for Rugby League. Well, there it is. A

:28:17.:28:30.

great moment. Isn't this wonderful! This is fantastic. Gorgeous. Well,

:28:31.:28:35.

isn't that wonderful? Bryan, are you missing the Hull

:28:36.:28:48.

derby? I never played in one, but I get what you are saying. We miss any

:28:49.:28:55.

big occasion in rugby League. You could see the crowd there.

:28:56.:28:57.

Absolutely banging. You do miss it. The modern day Hull FC

:28:58.:29:02.

were at home to Leeds on Friday, with both sides looking to bounce

:29:03.:29:05.

back from defeats in Round Eight. Just six minutes for the deadlock

:29:06.:29:11.

to be broken by the visitors. Dives over and opened

:29:12.:29:20.

the scoring for The The home side responded

:29:21.:29:25.

with a score of their own. Kelly's kick out wide

:29:26.:29:30.

collected by Michaels. Impressive leap and finish

:29:31.:29:33.

levelling the scores. Just five metres,

:29:34.:29:40.

a long ball to Ryan. He shows to the left

:29:41.:29:45.

and then goes himself. He is running, dancing,

:29:46.:29:55.

weaving and stretches out. Developing a stronghold

:29:56.:30:13.

in the game, Gareth Ellis' arrival helped

:30:14.:30:24.

the But the visitors

:30:25.:30:27.

continued to dominate. The visitors gained further ground

:30:28.:30:41.

but Hull responded in The fullback tearing

:30:42.:30:53.

through the defence to score A second penalty from Sutcliffe kept

:30:54.:30:56.

Leeds more than an arm length After a neat passing spell, a dive

:30:57.:31:04.

gave Hull hope but not for long. It is picked up and The Rhinos

:31:05.:31:14.

have scored another try. For the second week running,

:31:15.:31:28.

Hull staring another They will have a point

:31:29.:31:30.

to prove when they Leeds, though, have

:31:31.:31:34.

a boost for Widnes. Talking about a lack of confidence,

:31:35.:32:02.

going into their shell. As simple as missing a couple of players? Halton

:32:03.:32:07.

is a keeper? Yes. Pivotal to success. -- Houghton. What they are

:32:08.:32:19.

physical and they are flat without that. They are not quite ready need

:32:20.:32:26.

to be in the last two on three games. They need to pay attention to

:32:27.:32:33.

their results. Having won the Challenge Cup, we were expecting

:32:34.:32:37.

them to move forward. Is there a weight of expectation on Hull?

:32:38.:32:43.

Always when you have a successful year before. We need to mention that

:32:44.:32:53.

Leeds are in very good form. Every team will have peaks and troughs.

:32:54.:33:02.

Hull are in a trough. Leeds are on a peek. They are enjoying themselves.

:33:03.:33:13.

Moons playing well. Stand-off for Salford. And back in New Zealand.

:33:14.:33:22.

Hull will have to figure a way out of it. Houghton a key member of the

:33:23.:33:31.

group. When you have a smart hooker, half-backs will call for the ball.

:33:32.:33:37.

He knows which one to go with. The Cassini space. I think he plays as

:33:38.:33:47.

an 80 minute player. Key to have McGuire alongside him? The criticism

:33:48.:33:54.

last year, they did not have a settled half-backs combination, not

:33:55.:34:00.

fluent. The two people look on their game. Danny playing regularly is

:34:01.:34:04.

massively important. Now Huddersfield against Catalan

:34:05.:34:07.

doesn't quite fit into the theme of derby matches,

:34:08.:34:09.

but they were quite close Just a point between them,

:34:10.:34:11.

how are Huddersfield playing They snatched defeat from the jaws

:34:12.:34:24.

of victory. They were comfortable in the first half. Murphy, the big boy,

:34:25.:34:36.

he scores. This Catalan team, they are not going to go away. They had

:34:37.:34:46.

their fullback back. A game of tennis in the first half. A lack of

:34:47.:34:50.

ball control from the home team. Look at his enthusiasm. He is just

:34:51.:35:08.

about that try. -- pleased about that try. Every time you thought the

:35:09.:35:15.

Catalans had gone away, they got two and three scores. Mentioning

:35:16.:35:26.

Castleford going in to try spurts. They did it, too. The game was won

:35:27.:35:31.

in the end in the second half. The finishing. Needs to have a word with

:35:32.:35:43.

the referee. I'm not sure it is the first time for him. He is a

:35:44.:35:52.

confidence, competitive man. When things are not going your way, you

:35:53.:35:59.

do display that. He has been upset by something he has said, the

:36:00.:36:09.

referee. When it comes to Danny, it is a unique situation. It is like

:36:10.:36:17.

losing two men. He is pivotal. He marshals them. He is a goal kicker.

:36:18.:36:26.

If he goes off the field for ten minutes, it is like losing two men.

:36:27.:36:37.

And this man can play multiple positions. He can even play

:36:38.:36:43.

background. Good ball-handling skills for a guy of his size. He can

:36:44.:36:53.

see is based. -- see space. But who can he work with to create a good

:36:54.:36:55.

partnership? Our final match today is the meeting

:36:56.:36:57.

of Widnes and Warrington. They were the top two

:36:58.:37:00.

Highlights from the biggest round of matches on the Super League calendar as Wigan take on St Helens, Widnes play Warrington and Castleford face Wakefield. The Easter matches are traditionally played in front of sell-out crowds as local rivals go head to head in some intense atmospheres. The rivalry between Wigan and St Helens stretches back to 1895, making it one of the oldest derby matches in world sport. The teams have met over 300 times, and their latest contest will be one of the highlights of the season. Wakefield make the short journey to take on their high-flying neighbours, the Castleford Tigers. Castleford averaged over 40 points a game in the first seven weeks of the season, but Wakefield have been in impressive form themselves, having already won away to Catalans and St Helens so far this year. Widnes and Warrington go into the Easter weekend in the bottom four and both the need the victory, and the two points on offer, to help them a climb away from the foot of the table. Salford play Leigh, and Huddersfield are at home to Catalans.
