Re: Wigan Warriors utilise new man to eradicate goal-kicking woe

A couple of years ago they brought in Charlie Hodgson to teach Sam how to kick goals and it worked wonders. Whatever they paid him, they need to pay him again.

Re: Wigan’s 2022 fixtures

We've got 3 early Thursdays at home but then no more after that. Barring any last minute changes (always possible) we get out Thursday home games out the way by the end of March. Clearly they're not willing to listen and bin them off entirely but to get them out the way so early will do for me. At l...

Hummel extend

So we've got Hummel til 2028. That's a long kit contract! I know they divide opinion but I quite like the stuff they produce. Only issue for me is its on the pricey side but that seems to be across the sport rather than just our issue. Hopefully they follow up the announcement with a nice traditiona...

Re: Super League start date revealed

So the "Fans hate Thursday Nights" message still hasn't got across then..... Whats the betting we're involved in that opening game on the Thursday night? So if its a 27 round schedule, starting a week later than normal and finishing 2 weeks earlier than normal. That means that we're going ...

Re: League v Union rivalry

Scotland played Tonga last Saturday at Murrayfield with half their usual squad because the English Premiership teams are not obliged to release players outside the international window. That can be a blessing at times to bring in fresh caps or a disaster aka what happened to Wales . WRFU openly adm...

Re: League v Union rivalry

The thread prompted me to have a look into what the RU salary cap is and to my surprise they are reducing it for 2021/22 to £5m down from £6.4m. It's supposed to be temporary but they were trying to reduce pre-covid as over the 2018 to 2020 seasons (I think) the clubs collectively lost £89m !!! :o ...

Re: League v Union rivalry

Thanks Jobo. You're right that I wasn't poking fun at Union (tho I'm by no means a fan!). I guess my point is that most sports, apart from soccer, are struggling to a greater or lesser extent. Our plight may be more obvious/publicised than others, but it's not easy to establish a team in a new area...

Re: League v Union rivalry

I'm something of a rarity in that I'm a fan of both codes. I've always played Union (never fit enough to play League) but I've always enjoyed watching league. I'm a season ticket holder at Wigan, I also attend Wasps games whenever I can as well as Scotland games at at Murrayfield, (I'm there Sunday ...

Re: Bobbie Goulding reveals battle against dementia

This has been coming for a while. We've seen it in the NFL and Rugby Union, it was only a matter of time before RL saw something similar, No surprise its the same solicitor who is running the Union class action. The issue RL has is that it is light years behind RU and NFL when it comes to dealing wi...

2022 Kit

Go on then I'll start this one off. Season tickets are on sale, Despite my protestations when my wife plays her Christmas album, the countdown to Christmas is underway, which means that next seasons kit won't be far away. So what is everyone thinking? After 2 seasons of none-traditional I think its ...
