    This is a masterclass in how to play wet weather knock out rugby. Greasy conditions if not raining, which it usually does at Old Trafford. Massive drives up the middle, players running in with real intent, simple last tackle options and no shovelling shit. It seems so simple but it’s destroying Wigan.
    Forwards win games. The backs decide by how much.

    Absolutely fantastic performance Saints, well done! Hats off in every department.

    Kicking game was on point, forwards absolutely smashed their lot up front. Thommo was absolutely huge, and Coote was as cool as a cucumber.

    Forwards were immense but Coote hitting top form also means Lomax on top form, as he cant be the sole target for defences. An all round superb performance.

    I don't think I've seen a team play as good as we did in the first half absolute first class

    That was one hell of a performance , WOW , so strong so professional I am absoloutly gobsmacked , they certainly have learned from an earlier game , and deserve every amount of praise , that was the way to win a "semi final" , cant say enough , I once doubted them but the SAINTS TEAM , have answered all the questions = "bottle" ?? theyv'e got a wagon full.

    What a performance, one win away from possibly our most satisfying Grand Final win after the sh*t we’ve had to listen to from rival fans (mainly Warrington).

    Obviously Thommo now back to his best attacking the middle but there 2 players who were pretty outstanding in defence Knowles doing a pretty good job on Williams and Peyroux snuffing out Gildart. Makinson is running like a backrower now sucking the energy out of the Goon pack.

    Think we made 1 error and 1 penalty in the first 44 minutes then we had 4 sloppy play the balls completely different to the 17 errors in the wire game.

    Luke Thompson looked unstoppable. He looked like he'd swallowed The Hulk and his strut off the field was iconic. If you've not watched it back yet, looked when Thomo is taken off, it's like something off a movie.

    That's better.

    Thought Coote, Lomax & Fages all amazingly good tonight. Makinson, Percival, Thompson, Knowles, LMS also brilliant. The rest were merely superb. Not one poor performance.

    Ref was very lenient with the piescum flopping and slowing the PTB, whilst his ignoring of their offside was farcical. He also bottled the Clubb incident - late, high and looked like a shoulder (didn't see the replay as I was too busy being halfway down the steps calling him a fat, dirty b*stard). No doubt the bent disciplinary will shrug their shoulders, but that should be season over for the useless yard dog.

    Surely we've learned enough lessons now not to bottle another final.
    I f*cking hate wi*an.

    Knowles was epic tonight. Absolutely outstanding.

    Brilliant display and brilliant night, up there with the best at the new stadium. A perfect example of how to play a semi final - intensity, control and passion, personified by Thommo and Knowles who turned in world class performances. When the chips were down, they led and everyone else followed. Men v boys. Well played all

    Outstanding performance, especially that first half, is it me our should we of had at least 50? I just hope and pray we can repeat that again at Old Trafford. One more game to go, let's not lose site of the prize, let's have more of the same lads.

    What a game!! Ran away with it in first half.

    Thompson put a Herculean effot in.

    Smith played brilliant in 2nd half as hooker. Guided us brilliantly.

    Lomax , Coote, Knowles and Roby where top class.

    Walmsley, Amor and LMS smashed the Wigan forwards.

    They didnt want anything to do with us.

    Justin Holbrook - Thank you.

    For me yes.

    I thought we were outstanding from start to finish. The opening 20 minutes was flawless and we drained Wigan of alot of energy. The points followed that. Everyone of our forwards dominated Wigan and they just couldn't live with the size and speed of our game. It's very rare you come out of a game where practically every player could've got the MOM vote but it happened last night. We were absolutely ruthless and the week off did us good as we looked fresh as daisies.

    If we play like that at Old Trafford in two weeks, the trophy is ours. It's as simple as that. Please God Saints deliver another performance like that.

    Agreed that first half was as near faultless as I've seen the club play in a big game. 1 handling error and one bite in on the left edge. The sheer pace, power and agility of us with the ball in slippy conditions was insane, wigan tried to fly at us and we still bust through them. Quite incredible performance from the pack and Tommy Makinson in exit ball.

    Probably the best I've seen Coote kick too bar a couple of short kicks that ran a touch too far. Theo Fages was also outstanding. We just need one more 80 like that

    Excellent performance!... Another one needed now at OT.

    No complacency, no over-confidence, no excuses - just a full on, professional and passionate performance to the right game plan like last night.

    Excellent performance! Perfectly executed.

    The Clubb incident was virtually identical to the one when England played the USA in the Union World Cup on Thursday where the Yank forward got sent off for putting a shoulder into Owen Farrell's face. Union got it right, League bottled it. Clubb and Flower are dross and have no right to be spoken of in the same breath as Thompson, Walmesley and Knowles or the rest of our pack for that matter. Immense last night.

    As an aside it was a surprising move to see Smith named on the bench last night. I think most of us thought it would be Bentley. It’ll be interesting to see how he goes for the final, I suspect he won’t want to change anything
