Re: Squad numbers

A passing comment. I preferred players numbered 1 to 17. If a player was substituted in my mind it was easier to see how a positional change affected the game.
Today it doesn’t matter as players continually swap positions eg scrum half to loose forward.

Re: Bateman

Bateman still has that necessary aggression. He will scrap for any advantage….. ball possession, making a tackle.
However for whatever reason he isn’t making the breaks he used to make. I m not talking about metres gained but defence splitting breaks.

Re: Floodlights cost

I can’t ever imagine Ian Lenagan, Kris Radlinski ever using such inflammatory language in public. Where’s the supposed harmony between the 2 clubs. ? It needs to be realised how much the rugby club means to the town of Wigan

Re: Coverage!

I think having the women’s and wheelchair teams involved has proved a media masterstroke. I can’t remember as much publicity. It’s had main stream news coverage and on one channel came before Union.

Re: Green Vigo

Sullivan’s Way off Greenhough St……that’s for real. Wasn’t there a stand somewhere to be named after Billy Boston for ever ?

Re: Green Vigo

I seem to remember Green making his debut in the Wigan Sevens along with John Gray who was an England RU hooker. A goal kicker who went to Australia.
The Wigan Sevens were always an exciting time for me. Played in the sun as the new season was about to begin.

Re: Jake Wardle joins Wigan

Wardle arriving will prove a good acquisition. However sorry to see Bibby and Halsall go. I thought Bibby was beginning to play really well up until the moment that Watson suggested he would come to Huddersfield shortly before the cup final. His form has never been quite the same since. Nothing inte...

League Winners

I hope Saints lose tonight. If they do their season in the record books will be seen by many as a failure. However they have won the league which needs longer term consistency. The emphasis on this title seems to have gone because of SKY’s wishes. A lot more should be made of this title by the RL as...
