Tell you what, there ain't half some talent coming to the club over the next few weeks. Radley there today, JWH in a few weeks too. Wish we had a 50 year old, silver tongued Maurice buttering them up.

I did have a small heart attack when I saw the twitter post about JWH and Bromwich until I saw what it was about

Wane letting his Wigan mates stay at home whilst everyone else travels. Typical.


This is clearly the reason Hardaker didn't make the squad, the commute was just too much for him.

Hardaker was out when he heard they didn’t fly Concorde to Newcastle anymore. The 96 hour sleeper train from Ponte to Newcastle was deemed excessive.

You aren't the only one.

He'd spend a lot of time in the stands, but my god I'd love to see JWH at Wigan. Good Friday, watching him belt Walmsley around would be worth the 6 weeks ban.

Undoubtedly.

Also undoubtedly better than any of our current options too.

I'll admit that, I'm not optimistic about our chances should we not sign another centre. It's a glaring weakness, but one we seem to keep repeating. Remember when we signed Hastings and French, but ignored the prop situation. The time we needed a HB and signed Sammut etc.

Time will tell, but after a quick count I can probably name 5 or 6 olayers available who'd have improved us.


We have 1 more centre than we finished last season with and we were not far off, even without another centre I will be very confident we will be in the mix again.

Not sure, just saw the post online from one of the journos. You’d imagine they might be there all week given the facilities.
