Re: Why we will be worse off through Brexit (Question from other forum)

Nandy is talking nonsense. She quotes Peter Kelner who gave stats on the 2016 referendum. Which he did. So why didn't she quote his latest figures? They told us that due to the demographics with the older Leave voters dying and new young and Remain people joining the voting register the Leave majori...

Re: Jake bibby

See the Gildart thread. Maybe Bibby is seen as a replacement for Gildart, he's listed as centre/wingman on the Salford site.
There was a Salford game on tv where he played and had a blinder. Perhaps the club have been watching him for some time.

Re: Gildart

This has been around for some while that Gildart may move to the NRL. If he's that sure and with 18 months on his contract perhaps this is why we're linked with Jake Bibby at Salford. He's listed as a centre wingman. The club will have known his intentions all along. Perhaps they should tell Ollie t...

Re: Kibula

At 19 a year on loan at Dewsbury might well be what sets him on the path to progress. Next year he could well be in the reserve squad. From there it is an obvious progression to first team via sporadic appearances due to injury or suspension then into the first team squad and eventually the named 19...

Re: Adrian Lam still Ian Lenagan’s first choice for Wigan Warriors job

In the article it says IL made the comment at a fans meeting prior to the game in Barcelona. I do hope that after seeing that shambles he may reconsider. That was a lot more than just a loss that cost us two points. It was embarrassing and unacceptable. As has been said, if we lose the next four the...

Re: Young guns

We played them at Cas, Wakey and Salford. Those teams scored barge over try after barge over try. Young lads will give you a good ten minutes then when they tire fall off tackles all over the place. Hence opposition coaches played down the middle for their barge over tries. It may change next season...

Re: Why

Hankinson looks a big lad to me. We were close to the pitch at Salford and he sure looked big there. He came from the C'ship as a right centre and has been used as right 2nd row. Using him left side I'd imagine would be risking it. Hank and Bullock are first year SL and after a full season then off ...

Re: Jake bibby

Perhaps they've had a further prognosis on Dom Manfredi which isn't good.
Some thing has to give as we're not short of wingers.

Re: Toronto Bound

If he is then he'll be in SL. Like Josie I'll be sorry to see him go. Gives 100% and has pace, he also brings excitement and unpredictability. Mind you do Wigan want that? Obviously not. We want slow, boring and to be that predictable every opposition squad has us worked out before we take the field...

Re: Size

It was the management in IL & Rads that mentioned size first. That was after the Roosters WCC game five years ago. So how many 6'5" props have we recruited since? Bullock is the only one I can think of and this is his first season with us. OK Wane might not have wanted men that tall but smaller more...
