Re: Where should the buck stop?

I've no issue with them bringing Lam is as coach. Most people seemed to want an assistant from the NRL to replace Wane and that's what we got. He was probably the most experienced candidate available and his links to the club made the appointment easier. I think perhaps Radlinski and Lenagan saw som...

Re: Why

We've got Smithies, Paisley and Joe Shorrocks who've played in the back row already this year and back row forwards out on loan. While Hankinson does have the advantage of good handling, he hasn't got the size and he doesn't seem to be one of these players like Bateman or Farrell who can play above ...

Re: The Truth No Excuses

Escare is quicker and harder to handle than Zak, every game hes played hes caused the defence problems, being small he also has the rob burrow effect of easy metres from high shots. With him at fullback i believe we would be quicker in attack. As to Zak over sarg thats an easy one, zak can pass, wh...

Re: New Signings Are On The Way

No surprise that Field and Forsyth are going, but I can't understand why they've made a decision that Joe Brown isn't getting a new contract but Worthington is still 'not yet determined'. Unless Brown was offered one but turned it down. Brown has the potential to be better than both Marshall and Dav...

Re: Bent refs

The refs aren't bent. I'd argue this was a case of 'over-officiating'. The correct decision was obvious. Tommy wasn't trying to strip the ball, the ball came free because of his fantastic tackle and the fact that it touched his hands is incidental. He's clearly not playing for the ball. However, the...

Re: Wigan Warriors target New Zealand prop for 2020

You do realise the above is a damning indictment of the clubs ability to recruit top players? It's just a long list of excuses. We are supposed to have this great production line of players which ought to mean players we sign from outside are a cut above. Not average joes. When we are reduced to tr...

Re: Wigan Warriors target New Zealand prop for 2020

Can't say I'm surprised that people are complaining about this. It's par for the course these days that everything has to be met with talk of how terrible things are at the home of the reigning Champions. Has anyone looked at the off contract list recently? There's barely any talent to be found in t...

Re: New Signings Are On The Way

I remember many on here saying that Sutton was no good, that we would not miss him and he wouldn’t make it in the NRL, where have they gone now? Ah, but if Sutton had played for Wigan like he currently is doing for Canberra, I would have been more impressed. I didn't think his Wigan form was NRL st...

Re: Who’d you have as next coach?

Lam deserves a bit longer to see what he can do with the current side. His job has been made so much harder by losing Bateman, Tomkins and Sutton from last years side and then dealing with the injuries we've had. Add to that a few players in the squad who probably aren't really good enough to carry ...

Re: Sam Powell

Powell defends well and has the stamina to keep making a huge number of tackles for 80 minutes. Coaches love that. If the rest of the team plays well then that's all he needs to do. His defence is his strength, his attack has always been his weakness. He's not in the same class as Roby, Clark, Hough...
