Re: Canberra Eyeing Up More Wigan Talent

Not many aussies want to go to Canberra as it's a pretty dull place to live compared to the east coast.

Re: BBC sport - Edwards linked with Wigan job

When Noble's contract was coming up for renewal IL asked Shaun Edwards to report on state of the squad and style of play when we had a game in London. He obviously knows him going back a long time.

Re: Wigan coach Wane keeps opposition guessing on Tomkins’ role

Sam at full back gives us something Escare doesn't yet provide which is that link play with the winger or centre.
