Re: Mago to Wakefield/Featherstone??

Ellis and Mago have been ok signings. Ellis is ok going forward, Mago I admit needs better fitness to do more minutes but he has good offload and is quite a solid runner(just not for long). I think Harvard and Cooper should be our starting props and their alright backup. I’d give them at least anot...

Re: Mago to Wakefield/Featherstone??

One thing for sure is we’ve admitted mago was a bad signing. Ellis is in the failed section atm. Thornley can have his own section. How come saints have barely made a bad signing in the last 5 years. Who’s identifying some of these players. Ellis was poor at dragons. Thornley awful at Leigh as well...

Agree with him.

Whilst money doesn’t guarantee success, the sport needs more people like Moran.

Re: Catalans Dragons Sam Tomkins reveals regret at rejoining Wigan Warriors upon NRL exit

I listened to him on that podcast and the quote isn't very fair. He wasn't being ungrateful at all he was just saying that he had already lived that sort of life in Wigan, then moved to Oz, then felt like he had moved back in time again going back to the same place he had been before. I think the r...

Based on what?

Re: Mago to Wakefield

There are more rumours that we are interested in one of Medlockes favourite props, Martin Taupau! What I can’t get my head round is, we’ve let a young Wigan 24 year old prop leave, Partington, then it’s rumoured about Mago who is 27, 28 in December a prop in his prime leaving for a championship sid...

Not sure he would play 13 as he’s spent his Union career as Fly Half or inside centre.

He’d played 6 or 7.

Maybe with a good pre season they may turn him into a good offloading 2nd rower, pure guess btw. 🤷

Re: Bateman

Now the World Cup is over let's get the announcement made so we can all move on! No one person is bigger than the Club, make Batty's intentions clear soon as like now. It isn’t gives a constant impression that the contracts are always in the players favour and they can just move on and look elsewhe...

Re: new prop

Lucky 13, I like your positivity but I'm slightly more cynical in nature and would look at the squad like this - you counted Bateman and he's going to leave. You're also hopeful that Hanley and Silva will develop and I'm confident that they won't. If I'm correct, we'll struggle as soon as we start ...
