Re: Barnes and Kibula to leave Wigan

Of the two, and im not a betting man but I think Barnes is the better longer term bet at another shot at super league, we shall see though in the fullness of time. Barnes always impressed me in the U19's and he was playing regularly in the Championship with Swinton at age 18 which is quite impressi...

Re: Sean O'Loughlin and Ben Flower set to give Wigan Warriors a boost

If the choice is Flower or Byrne in a play off game I would still choose Flower, just. I'd choose Flower every time. Byrne is hit and miss in terms of effectiveness in attack and is a bit weak in defence for Super League. Not that there's anything concerning about that because he's still ahead of m...

Re: Samy Kibula

He is an enigma wrapped ina puzzle,by now most players have started to show that they’re progressing or not as the case maybe but Samy seems to have stood still. Huge lad which hasn’t helped him in terms of not be able to hide away and develop at his own pace,he’s big ergo he must be good seemed to...

Re: Bevan French

The team cries out for a quality "spine" and some handy forwards and everyone's wetting themselves because we appear to be signing another winger. I would love to know how exactly this bloke is supposed to finish any chances off with this side????? I think most of us who are ‘wetting themselves’ as...

Re: U19s hold off Huddersfield

Jack Wells also didn't feature for Swinton today. I think there's a good chance both of them will be in the 19 for Thursday.

Re: Bevan French

Can't understand why we'd be after French. If it's for this season then maybe the injuries to our wingers would make it worthwhile but it's forwards we need and signing a big money winger before getting a forward in won't make a shred of difference. If it's for next season it makes even less sense. ...

Re: Skints v WIGAN

I can see that line of reasoning, and will be interested to see how we go against Hull and Wire. You touch on some of the points, but by no means all of them. Take a look, say, at the Catalans game in Barcelona, where we had a strong side out. Did we 1) show toughness, 2) show that we had a game pl...

Re: Skints v WIGAN

I am as far as I can tell the only person who criticises Lam, and I don’t cite this game as the sole reason, it merely reinforces a pattern - if you have the time, take a look at any of our games against Wire, Cas, Catalans, Hull, Saints and the Roosters and see whether you can see anything that su...

Re: Reality check

Agreed. We're in the position where our experienced middles may provide good things but are frequently injured and it's leaving us relying far too much on our youngsters right now. No team can really rely on such young forwards to play such a big role week in week out and there's a chance that the m...

Re: Skints v WIGAN

The fact that lam thought shorrocks was worthy of a bench spot for a game like that is a bit worrying. Sammut should have been on the bench just to give experience cannot get my head around some of Lam's team selection ? I think Shorrocks was there because he's covered hooker this season and leaves...
