Fans explode over Williams rumours, Warrington’s win “ruined” and Wigan described as broken? – How social media reacted to last night’s rugby

Last night the Super League table continued to take shape as the real challengers this year begin to reveal themselves. Warrington backed up having beaten Champions St Helens last week, league leaders Catalans underlined their credentials with victory at Castleford whilst Wigan surprisingly suffered a third consecutive defeat. That was my view anyway. How did social media see it?

Let’s start at Warrington were Sky set about addressing the ongoing George Williams transfer saga. They identified Leeds and Warrington as the two likeliest destinations for the English stand-off although when they asked the player himself things didn’t go according to plan.

Sky had Leeds fans on their toes about the possibility that Williams could be Headingley bound.

Some even took to finding the odds for Williams to make the move to Leeds after what they heard on Sky Sports.

But let’s turn to the action at Warrington rather than this speculation. Once again, despite the continued Williams links, Gareth Widdop impressed but Warrington fans were left worried when he limped off.

Wolves supporters could be proud of their team however as they defeated Leigh 44-18. The Wire named a number of youngsters in their side and still defeated the Centurions comfortably. Danny Walker was the star man and proved to be irrepressible out of dummy half.

It was a 12th defeat from 12 in the league for Leigh and some fans believe they won’t win a game this season whilst others believe a new coach is needed as soon as possible.

Elsewhere, Wigan lost a third game in a row after winning the first seven. Some turned to the style of rugby played by the five time Super League Champions claiming that Adrian Lam has taken them backwards.

Meanwhile, others suggested that the pain of last year’s Grand Final defeat is derailing the Warriors in 2021.

In last night’s other game, Catalans underlined their growing title credentials with victory at Castleford. It led some to tip the Dragons to make it to Old Trafford however they feared they may fall at the final hurdle.

Catalans will have been very pleased with the result but naturally it was a different story for Castleford. According to some the Tigers were simply terrible.
