Re: Challenge Cup record wins

Changing the way the record books are written when for decades the war time finals are excluded is definitely rather pathetic especially if the one promoting the change is at a club that comes out better. It’s a bit childish as well. That said I’d rather not rely on discounting a couple of war time ...

We certainly didn’t do that. They had 34 offloads we had 4.

In fact I think we were only top in one statistic, the one that matters ,the final score! :)

Re: Wigan Athletic sold to a Spanish group

So, on to the import questions. Who owns the DW and is Wigan RL's tenure secure?

Re: Forward Play / Speed

It is so simple: - Hit the ball at speed - Hit the ball on the gain line - Hooker to step out slightly to draw the first marker - Use footwork to hit the gap rather than directly into a player - Run in pairs as it holds off defenders as they anticipate the tip on The same also applies when shipping...

Re: Changes Needed

You need to be ruthless in sport, even in our halcyon days we pushed great players through the door when the time was right e.g. Hanley, Gregory. IFL and Rads have to adopt the same mentality. I have been saying this for a while but they show no desire to do it. Clubb would never have got a new dea...

Re: Changes Needed

There are few players that need to go clubb is ok in 10 minute spurts but for me don't think he is the answer and time to say farewell, bullock doesn't seem to offer much and Burgess although he has been injured a lot isn't the type of dynamic player who will make a ton of metres. We need explosive...

George Williams

Looks a much better player than when at Wigan. As does Sutton. You could say it’s because they are in a better team but then the Wigan “rejects” at Salford look better than they did at Wigan. It’s not a good look that in order to improve players need to leave the club!

Re: Changes Needed

I'd be amazed if IL sacked him before the end of the season and equally amazed if he did then whatever happens. Lam is a cheap option I am sure and Covid and the weird season we are having as a result will be the excuse to lumber us with him for another season.

Re: Changes Needed

What does everyone think the biggest changes that are needed at the club? for me Radlinksi needs to go - absolutely vital he is taken away from managing the club this jobs for the boys has left us with a poor coach, poor fitness and poor recruitment New Coach New Hooker (additional or in place of P...

Re: ISA

Isa is a typical middle of the road player who looks consistent against the poorer sides but never rarely a great game against a to side. In fact last season I thought be he was pretty woeful when it mattered. Plenty of players like him can make a living in RL in this country. The best back row we h...
