Re: Bateman back

Great signing by IL & KR.
I'd imagine he will be fitted into the club's salary bill and cap without too much of a problem given the players rumoured to be leaving as well as those who have been conformed as left.

Re: Wigan Athletic football club goes into administration

Now there's Rick Parry quoted suggesting "a bet in the Philippines" may have something to do with it all.
Sounds like something not quite right somewhere.

Re: NZ Warriors and Canterbury in for Hastings

Then there was the rumour that Wigan had expressed an interest in Benji Marshall. As soon as that was mentioned it seemed to me that Hastings had indicated he was a bit undecided but might leave as he'd had good offers from NRL clubs. He has the release clause so there's nothing untoward about him l...

Re: Benji Marshall

I'd have thought that the club would only be interested in Benji Marshall if Hastings has already indicated he wants to take up one of the offers from the NRL. Marshall could come on a two year deal from 2021. Harry Smith will be brought in this year and given more game time alongside Hastings, he w...

Re: Who stays? Who goes? Wigan Warriors' situation with off-contract stars

With the numbers confirmed and rumoured to leave there will be a considerable reduction in the club's salary bill. If all those do leave then the squad will be short of quality and I could see a couple of signings arriving.

Re: Message from IL

Yeah, we've always been told that. Just that Oxford Uni and AZ say they have been trialing and now producing in bulk. It's interesting that the USA and ordered the vaccine and paid over$1bn up front. Last week four European countries ordered and paid up front. This is unknown but who knows where we ...

Re: Message from IL

A good letter from IL outlining the club's financial situation. As for how IL and the club proceed will depend on how and when the season starts also if and when supporters will be allowed to see a game. Only walk up fans will be paying at the turnstile and providing revenue. There will be retail, m...

Re: Ben Currie linked with Leeds and one other club

The way rumours are going Leeds could end up with a pack back three of Currie, Greenwood & Ward.

Re: Who stays? Who goes? Wigan Warriors' situation with off-contract stars

With the present health and financial crisis it will be the departing players effect on the balance sheet for than the salary cap that will be the most crucial.

As for names, I do think most ooc will depart, otherwise I wouldn't want too many or else we'll end up with a squad of strangers.
