Re: Wigan vs roosters

IIRC when George was promoted to the first team Ryan Hampshire was out injured. Matty Smith was our 7 so George was given the number 6 shirt. As has been mentioned George always played 7. When Ryan recovered he was asked to play fullback. It was pretty obvious watching him in the reserves it was co...

where does it come from that morgans defense is weak ? everytime i watch him ,, he seems pretty sound
Since fullbacks rarely defend in the defensive line you will be referring to his 1 on 1 defence which is a lot different to defending in the line for consecutive tackles against forwards.

Re: Wigan Warriors confirm appeal against points deduction - but when will a decision be made?

In hindsight it does appear that 2 points is harsh for the amount we were over and the explanation that has been given, especially considering it was from the 17 season and we are now in the 19. Perhaps a tiered system based on the amount you are over as well as aiming to get the punishment served i...

Re: Wigan Warriors confirm appeal against points deduction - but when will a decision be made?

Rules are there for a reason and we have broken them, albeit for a small insignificant amount. The line has to be drawn somewhere.

If it were Wire, Saints or Leeds we wouldn't be saying they shouldn't get a points reduction.

Re: morgan escare

I’d like to see Zak at right centre with Gildart/sarge on the left with Morgan at FB. It won’t happen though. If we go off form Gildart would be dropped to accommodate that but still we are 3 games in a lot will happen One bad game doesn't mean Gildart should be dropped. Gildart hasn’t looked his a...

Another club that seemingly know how to get round the salary cap!! 🤨
Seems like a very straight forward rule to me and no different to utilizing the Marquee player.

Turn him into a scooting Hooker
His defense is not good enough to play hooker.

Furthermore, Wigan have a history of moving players out of position and it rarely works. We should stop.

Re: Farrell out for 4 months

Too injury prone to be depended upon. What is his injury record over the last 3 seasons? From memory he has had a number of 3-5 month injuries. He hasn't been the same for 2-3 years now. I remember a time where he was one of the first names on the team sheet, had devastating pace, handling, hitting ...

Re: Leuluai

Despite us winning many with him as our 7, I have always been skeptical of his ability as a 7. Especially when creativity, management and kicking falls on his shoulders.

Re: morgan escare

Marshall apart surely Escare is one of the fastest in the squad. So often we look slow and predictable and Morgan is exactly the player who can add pace and unpredictability. Time to make room and fit him in. Hull are slow in the middle of the park and Escare can provide that pace to break their de...
