Thanks.

Haha, tbh i think Warrington have put together a decent squad. Whether Powell can get them to gel as a team, and do well, remains to be seen. All in all, I'm looking forward to next season, and hope Leigh can make a better fist of it this time round. :PRAY:


Warrington and Hull are very similar. Always seem to have a decent squad on paper but they seem to be lacking the culture to move on the rung of the ladder and win the big prize. We were there before and the proper Tony Smith changed it all. I don't think Powell has a record to make him any more than someone who can get his team playing nice rugby and giving the top teams a game.

I'd like to see Leigh do well this year. Beaumont gets stick but at least he's stepping outside the usual rugby league owner persona and making the game a bit more fun.

Agreed. Good post mate, and thanks. :thumb:

Wow, another one who needs educating. He wasn't sacked, and he also won coach of the year in 2020, and just won the world cup as an assistant coach.
Anyone else want embarrassing?


Yeh I'm sure his input for Australia at the WC was critical. They had no chance without him.... :lol:

By the end at Wigan he was a completely broken man, out of his depth with no idea.
As pointed out, he clearly found his level with endless funds and unlimited OQ players, playing against part timers.

Back with the big boys now...
Best of luck!

Hang on, Wigan won the LLS in 2020, lost in the Grand Final to the most freakish try in the last play of the game, and got to the Semi final of the Challenge cup. In 2021 Wigan were without French & Field that season who have shone in 2022. You (Hull Fc) can only dream of a Grand final. So it seems you & your thumbs up likes know nowt. BTW - Nene can be replaced by a quota spot if Leigh wish to do so. Now then, is there anything else you would like to be corrected on?


Ak the Wigan fans about him, Wigan are different from Hull, they have to win something to be successful, he failed to do that at Wigan and had he been a success he would still be there. He had a established squad and the one of the best youth systems in the league and still underperformed.

Haven't you already currently got 9 overseas players (Lam off quota and releasing Neve)?

Not sure what Hull have to do with this, that irrelevant, but we have made a grand final in 2007, we lost , I don't see that as a success and I'm sure Wigan fans don't either. No one remembers final and semi loses for good reasons.

Well Deggsey hasnt been shy of splashing the cash so at least it wont be boring.
Good on him, got a mouth on him but has backed it up and backed his team.

Personally I hope they can shake it up at the bottom and do well.

I genuinely think that, even though Leeds Live have said Nene MacDonald as a done deal and club haven’t confirmed it, that the deal may have fallen through. I don’t see why Leeds wouldn’t have confirmed it by now.

I thought you said he'd had his photos done? Surely that wouldn't have happened before a deal was agreed.

...or maybe he wasn't due to start training until this week, along with other WC players? I think that's what Smith said.
