@FlatCapperette @Linz67Yates From where I was sitting the Saints v Wigan game was an anticlimax 😉 #WeWereWellBeat— @Marillionmark 18 April 2014
Saints boss Nathan Brown said they had carried too many players with below par performances. He was disappointed with yet another knock on from the kick off and felt the poor yardage put the team's kicking game under the cosh.
Brown expects a number of changes for the Widnes game but said some off form players need to play.
Wane said losing three players with injury - Pettybourne, Thorniley and Bateman.
He added that he wanted Saints to beat Cas and they had spoken about coming here to take the unbeaten record off them.
Shaun Wane: we were not at our best but we showed a lot of desire. I was pleased with my players.
i have told Sean O'Loughlin he is an outstanding leader and player.
The skill of the players was amazing.
As a Wiganer coming here I can't tell you how good it feels to come here and do that.
Skipper Paul Wellens applauds every section of the Saints crowd before going down the tunnel. Some players will probably feel this defeat harder than others. Looks gutted and who can blame him.
Both teams doing the lap of honour now. Disappointing to lose to Wigan at a game of tiddly winks let alone on Good Friday. Hopefully no serious injuries from that will be the only consolation now.
Saints have been beaten here, 33-14. Their unbeaten record goes, but they are still top of the league.
Saints have spent the second half chasing the game and have suffered as a result.
Saints have not given up, but the bounce of the ball has not gone with them today.
You get the feeling that had Saints been playing Hunslet next week instead if Leeds there may have been a slight difference from both sides.
Even Houdini Saints won't get out of this one.
Ref just missed a blatant Wigan knock on from the restart.
Smith drop goal Wigan extend lead 33-14. 12 mins to play.
Smith missed a penalty, 18 to play 14-32.
Nothing going right now for Saints. Jones knock on.
Oloughlin placed on report for tackle on young prop Greg Richards. Richards has left the field - Iloughlin hasn't.
Sorry for technical issues, but early second half tries from Farewll and Burgess have given Wigan a 32-14 lead.
Wigan penalty after a Masoe obstruction from a Green chip after the hooter, harsh call, but Smith kicks it, 14-20 at half time.
Wello has made a big difference since he came on.
Walsh misses the goal, 14-18.
Try Turner, drive over from Hohaia short ball.
Should have been a penalty try for Saints when Turner has ball ripped going over for a try.
Lomax pass went behind Dawson and a good attacking position lost, but at least Saints have got a toe-hold back in the game.
Wigan's Pettybourne carried off by two trainers.
Walsh hits the woodwork for third time in two weeks. Saints 10-18 Wigan.
Saints try - following a penalty. Makinson over in the corner.
Saints just crying out for some time with the ball in the Wigan half.
Offside at the kick off says it all.
Another Wigan try Farrell over - green's kick caught by Burgess and tossed inside to Farrell. Smith goal.
Saints 6-18 Wigan.
Two big hitters on - Masoe for Saints, Pettybourne for Wigan.
Smith kicks the goal, Wigan lead 12-6 after 18 mins.
Sarginson try, break up the middle from O'Loughlin followed by a long ball out to the wing.
Good game so far, Lomax having an absolute blinder.
Try for Dawson disallowed by the video ref for obstruction. It was a fine passage of play too.
Walsh kicks the goal, 6-6.
Super try Tommy Makinson. Great break from Lomax, flew down wing and drew the man before putting Makinson in.
Shocking start for Saints - stemmed from losing ball from kick off. Under pressure straight away. O'Loughlin forced his way over, Matty Smith kicked the goal.
at least Walsh is fit, probably a finger injury that has been sorted.
Double blow here O'Loughlin try and Walsh getting treatment.
First mistake LMS knock on first tackle
Saints Wigan. Good Friday. This brings back memories, for sure. Not quite the same tho without Knowsley Rd and Central Park.— @TheRealMoaner 18 April 2014
Langtree Park is pretty loud - both ends. It's about to get louder with the entry of the gladiators.
