Who to support? RL or RU?

Post by Gary Austi » Wed, 08 May 1996 04:00:00


I'm off to Maine Road on Wednesday, but I'm not sure who to support.

1) The representatives of the game I love against the game I despise.

2) A team that is playing against the pies.

3) No-one, because it doesn't really matter anyway.

What about everyone else?

I'll probably enjoy seeing Wigan concede at least one try against a
team of amateurs (which they still are in RL terms!) but glad that the
rah-rahs get completely stuffed!

I'll settle for Wigan thrashing Bath with the Pies picking up a ton of
injuries which results in them handing the title to Saints.

A fair compromise ;)

Well, going back to the first World Club Challenge, Wigan v Manley, I
went  to central park wearing a hat with corks round the rim and
drinking Castlemaine, and came home with a whippet, a pint of mild and
a Pooles pie !

I think a fair compromise is to support Wigan, but cheer if Tuigamala
breaks his leg :-)

Gotta be number 1, IMHO. I'm going to Maine Road too!!

Even as a Wigan fan, so will I. In Wigan v Paris SG the biggest applause of the
night was for the Paris fullback when he went over..

It'd take a chainsaw to hack through the bone in his leg.

        If you PAID to watch it you're probably brain dead anyway, so
        it really doesn't matter much as you can't be held responsible
        for your actions.

P.S.  Shame Catt and Callard can't play with that sort of commitment for England :-(

Obviously you saw the game. How? Live, on Sky, or on Sportsnight.

Why not enjoy the fact that Union is coming to learn off league and
let's hope the two codes will come closer together

        Er, it was meant as a joke.  Do we have to put ***y emoti-poxy-
        cons every time we're trying to be sarcastic nowadays...

        Yes, I saw the game.  But I wasn't at Maine Road.  I was genuinely
        surprised to see how many turned up.  I learned my lesson about
        these things when I set my alarm clock for five o'clock one
        morning to watch Muhammed Ali "fight" a Japanese wrestler some
        time in the 70s.  It was farcical, the wrestler lay on the floor
        kicking at Ali's legs while Ali tried in vain to bash him.  I sat
        through fif*** ***y rounds of this ***which I suppose just
        proves my opinion doesn't count for much...

        This game wasn't as ludicrous but the spectacle of it was outweighed
        by the predictability.  It was never going to live up to the hype
        or prove anything which we didn't already know.  The Sevens is
        where we'll see some sort of true-ish comparison...
