Re: 3 return for cas

18 year olds can only step up for a while before fatigue hits them, so bringing back Powell and Lockers makes us stronger. Just look at Powell’s stats, and the ease with which we were run over on the line in their absence. Both of those know how to defend. Given we have shown we can score tries agai...

Re: Good News ?

This is only the most recent batch of bad news of course. Before all those, we had already lost over and over again, including against London, had the salary cap problem, no World Cup games, Williams on his way, Lockers and Leuluai likely to retire with, err, no signs of any incoming players. While ...

Re: Challenge Cup draw

We can concentrate on that. We could even go into full on Great Escape mode!

Re: Wigan should sign Israel Folau

I don’t think we should, as inclusivity and acceptance of differences is very important. Now, if he had mentioned the seventh circle of Hades for Saints fans and left it at that, I would give him both marquee spots.

Re: Challenge Cup draw

I don’t wish to be gloomy, but our season could be over by 11th May. With Friday being a likely rout (and we need to keep our eye on points difference even when we are losing heavily, as that is the only thing keeping us above London), and the available squad unlikely to be strong enough to win any ...

Re: How do we avoid relegation?

To go back to the original question, the first thing we need to do is accept that we are in a relegation fight. We need the real sense of jeopardy to focus minds. The second is to realise that we have to beat the Broncos at home at the start of May. That really is must win for us. We will get a terr...

Re: The Club's Philophosy

I am really happy with how the club has gone in the IL era. As the accounts show, he puts his hand in the pocket to pay up to the cap and employ many other hard working professionals who contribute to the club and the town. It seems to me that the squad has become unbalanced but that we can fix it. ...

Re: Wigan Launch Dacia Magic Shirt

I would rather the back office spent their time and effort on recruitment, managing the players’ behaviour and sorting out a new coach than designing a new top. This may of course constitute the highlight of the season for the club at this rate.

Re: Shaun Edwards says he "hasn't made mind up" whether to return to Wigan Warriors or stay in rugby union

It has only dragged on because the club wants to announce the next coach at the same time as he turns his back on us.

Re: 19-man squad vs Catalans

I don’t think it is unfair or even mean to point out that more people post when we lose than when we win. It is a combination of human nature and, I suspect, some genuine trolls. I think it is hard to dismiss Powell out of hand in his absence, as he has spilt blood for the cause and was central to s...
