Surely the training photo's the club are posting should give some indication to who these may be, people are throwing around names like cust & mago yet both have started pre season training with the club and are in photo's. Would this be the case if they were signing elsewhere?

I will say though i am not seeing hanley in any of them so could be legs to that one even if it is just a guess.

It is also worth noting that peet said in an interview a couple of days ago that as far as the club knows bateman is only going on holiday, they expect him back and there has been no formal offers made for his signature, seems him leaving is not a done deal yet.

Mostly "paper talk" related to Moses moving early and the money juggling needed - this is a typical piece https://www.seriousaboutrl.com/club-set-to-offer-over-1-million-to-tempt-rugby-world-league-world-cup-star-in-move-possibly-impacted-by-wigan-warriors-star-63534/

Seem to have this every pre-season at wigan with one player or another, it is getting pretty tiring. I am just at a point that the clubs word is the only one that matters to me on whether a player is leaving or not. Everything else just feels like people stirring the pot.

Given no people "in the know" have mentioned any names I'm not convinced about any of these rumours...

Would like to hear your opinions on this whiffy mate instead of just the laugh reacts? Don't feel like i have said anything too controversial here.

The fact cust and mago are training with the squad and are being shown off on social media indicates they are staying. We wouldn't waste time, resources and training hours on players that are leaving. Mago in particular, rumours of him leaving and "done deals" have been around for months, the club would know if he was leaving by now surely?

Hanley does appear to be missing from training photos despite not being an international player and has had chances last season to play but has being overlooked for other options. Must be a reason for that?

Despite all the talk from over in oz of "done deals" and bateman for sure going to west tigers, the club says no offer has even being made. The club was under no obligation to say this or go into as much detail as they have, there didn't seem to be much pressure for it, in fact it seems to be dying off abit i would say, paper talk seems to be lessoning as no new "developments" seem to be happening. They could have just used a generic passing comment to avoid the question and had done with it.

Thoughts whiffy?
