Re: Overseas players

I wouldn’t worry too much about French and Hastings fitness levels, they’re both fit as fiddles and look to be fitness fanatics. I think giving them an extended break will be good for their mental well-being and it’s a decision that probably played a part in helping us keep them. I recall French in ...

Re: Burgess

It is only indirectly relevant, but I saw an Article on the NRL site about Canterbury’s 17 for the opening week end. Which did not include Luke Thompson (though he was on a list of other squad members)... maybe just maybe there is some truth in the rumours about heading our way once we have settled...

Re: Reflections on this season

I think my reflections are very positive, even as much as the whole club is hurting at the minute. I went in to this season still very fearful of being miles away from Saints and that was with me thinking we had a top prop in George Burgess. Had I been told at that point he would play 7 games of lim...

Re: New captain for 2021 ?

Sam Powell for me as well. He’s kicked on a couple of levels as a player these past two seasons anyway but I think it would kick him on again.

There will be the leadership team around him anyway but he’d be the main man IMO.

Re: Powell wants to finish career at Wigan

I keep reading and keep hearing that his attack isn’t good enough, he isn’t dangerous enough, creative enough etc. Top try scoring hooker in Superleague-Sam Powell Top assist making hooker in Superleague-Sam Powell (joint) He’s turned in to a top player for my money. He’s tough as they come, his wor...

Re: Wells & Kilner loaned to Toronto

Does anyone think that the departure of both Greenwood and Wells suggest that we may have a mid season import lined up? Just thinking hypothetically, if Isa or Faz are injured against Huddersfield, how much strength in depth do we have to cover 11 or 12 (excluding Smithies or moving Partington or B...

Re: Stab in the dark

Listened to a couple of podcasts when he was over and it sounded like his shoulder is still absolutely wrecked. He said he’d done a light swim (think it was a swim but it wasn’t over exerting whatever it was) and the following day he was in agony. He needs a few surgeries to try and get it in a stat...

Re: Top three versus Hull FC

It’s a good sign that it’s tough to narrow it down to 3 players. I’d probably go-

French
Marshall
Hastings

Guys like Farrell, Partington and Bibby had very good games also.

Re: Jake Shorrocks

It may have been the injuries but he’s just never kicked on. He’s a decent player but usually you look at a half and think ‘he’s a running half’ or ‘an organising half’ or ideally both but with Shorrocks it’s been tough to really work it out. Maybe he’s never been given enough responsibility when it...
