I think the World Cups squads have to be submitted today (or very soon), it'll be interesting to see if Jonny Lomax plays.
At his age it will probably be his last chance and from an England p.o.v. he is a superb player and as an England R.L supporter I hope he does.

However with that injury he may decide to miss out to be ready for next season, tough decision which I think has already been made!


I think the club will give Lomax the choice of country before club and will play if selected.
The new young dynasty of super saints is coming to a ground near you.
Welsby-Dodd-Simms-Eaves-Rizzelli, not Eastmond...the future is coming.

Or Wigan would've had to compete in a salary cap era where they weren't allowed to blow other teams out of the water with transfer fees and wages.

Saints have now faced 4 different teams in the last four finals so shows just how consistent we are to keep getting there and winning. Of course this will be disregarded and if we win tomorrow there will be some excuse given and we aren't that great etc etc. We've had playing Salford in 2019 as not a great team and then 2 Covid years accounting for 2020 and 2021 so wondering what your excuses will be if we win tomorrow?


I was in favour of the salary cap for the first 5-6 years as it did balance out the table and help stop teams from bankrupting themselves , but I have to say I was wrong and it's been a disaster , I was a Leigh fan who grew up and was in wigan schools during the reign , it was a hard time , I was only too happy to see them pegged back , but now i've grown up a lot and lost a lot of interest in RL , I can look back at the 1988-1995 wigan sides and see how good they where , they dragged the standard of UK RL up and other teams had to get to that level , although Wigan did this to other teams detriment and reduced there quality by buying stars and sticking them on the A team ( like Nigel Wright , Tony Smith and Henry Paul early on )

We now have no superstars , no well known names outside of the game , the standard of rugby is nowhere near what it was in the early 90's . Its no longer a sport that will attract many new spectators outside of the grass roots regions , we have young players quitting to follow careers like the police and other sports . Good well run teams have a spending cap so they can invest or take a gamble . The cap needs to go if the sport is ever going to grow and we are still light years behind the NRL.

Don’t get this obsession with having to proclaim teams the best ever. Happens every time a team is successful more than once. How do you even quantify it? Saints have won grand finals against bad teams, in a bad competition. IMO. There’s nothing memorable about the team. They are efficient. Wigan are the most successful team ever. Let’s not get selective about it. But what does that even mean? Not a lot, it’s just a tool by which fans can one up each other. Saints fans can jizz amongst themselves about all this but the reality is they’re champions of a crap competition no one cares about.

He/she said “best in SL right now, maybe ever”

So they are talking about SL and the stats show we are the best ever SL team.


And?

No one cares except saints fans.

Great achievement by Saints and look forward to seeing them take part in a WCC match.

I’d imagine that they were relieved to of avoided Wigan in the playoffs though.

Had a feeling this would happen when he first got the injury. Disaster for England if he does withdraw - can't think of an obvious replacement. We'd end up with Marc Sneyd.
