in practically any other business it would be viewed as Gross misconduct and instant dismisal and so it should be at our club
Wigan is and always will be a town of Cherry & White

Trouble is the club has set precedent with Hardaker so hard to take any line but that with other players

Now we know why young players like Mullen think its acceptable,the standard set by senior players on and off the field looks to be very poor.

Well in the last year or so weve had

Zak drink driving
Mullen drink driving
Hamblin taking drugs
Tautai drink driving

theres also rumours about Escare

The culture of the club is not were it needs to be - we wonder about fitness, you cannot be fit if you drink shed loads there's an old saying you cant out train a bad diet and its true.

Also no club statement - yet again fans find out about this through the local paper

wasn't the escare rumor the one that ended up being Mullen?

the thing is the club could be doing more but won't because of where we are in the table.
when Bateman had the fight he was stopped from playing for weeks in a club imposed ban.
Joel was near enough sacked when it came to light (the cover up aside).

Tautai is the first first team player to have a issue in season and this is were the club needs to set its standard. Hamlin wasn't banned by the club. Zak was preseason, Mullen isn't first team.

regardless of how we are preforming the club need to set an example with Taitai and maintain it regardless of which players are involved. I can see due to onfield struggles he will be left out for a token week be fined and put back in.
RL's biggest issue is the constant negativity of its own fans.

If the law and potential risk of killing somebody whilst drunk won't deter the players, I am not sure a couple of game ban will.
