Re: Brian Carney: Should Super League salary cap be cut to £1m?

Brian seems to forget that he was a player once. I wonder how much less he'd have accepted for putting in all that effort into training etc. When union players like George Ford are looking at £600 000 per year for their next contract I don't see how Super league could compete with an even smaller ca...

Re: Sammut leaves...

Letting Jarrod go does suggests to me that Lammy is expecting French to play at 6. I think a really successful season (i.e. reaching a final or winning a trophy) is dependent on Bevan fitting in at 6 because, even with Hastings, if we're relying on Tommy at halfback again we just won't have the comb...

Re: Coach 2021?

I'm sure that Sean isn't being considered as a first team coach just yet but it would be reassuring to think that he's being considered and trained up for the role eventually. If so then why not organise some stints with NRL teams (Wests sand Souths spring to mind) to pick up as wide a range of expe...

Re: O'Loughlin signs for final season

Brett Kenny was one of the best players of all time but I can't consider him a Wigan legend when he only played 25 games for us. Didn't Gene Miles win more trophies in fewer games? It's just a matter of opinion of course, but in my book, a club legend has to have played for 4-5 seasons. An interesti...

Re: Wigan Warriors 2020 Home & away shirt first look

They've probably just realised that they'd not made a shirt big enough for George!

Re: Wigan winger Davies linked with Catalans

I'll be sad to see Tom go, he always gave 100% and has not reached his peak yet. I understand that we have plenty of wingers (when fit) but hope that we're trying to free up some cap space for another signing otherwise why weaken the squad before we know who's made it through pre-season in one piece?

Great news, all the best Dom, you deserve a long injury-free run.

Re: George Burgess

It will be a fresh start and a new challenge for George and I think he'll be very motivated. He'll never be able to play effectively for forty minutes per half but I'm hoping for decent stints either side of half time. Playing in a different competition on the other side of the world from his two te...

Re: Poor attendance

We have to be careful here when we start to argue about fan loyalty. Some will argue that we should be loyal no matter what whilst others will argue that a club earns fan loyalty over many years. Don't forget, not all of us come from Wigan and we don't have that 'loyalty' that comes from supporting ...

Re: Harry Smith

I'm starting to think that the plan is not to replace Sammut and to promote Harry next season. I'd love to think he's capable of making the jump to regular first team player next season because we need an alternative to Tommy playing at 6 or 7. It would be good if Tommy and Sam P shared the hooking ...
