Looks like Hardaker will be playing at centre like a lot of the posters on here have been asking for seems Bennet knows more than Lam
1 - who would play FB at Wigan instead of Zak? Please don’t say Escare as he hasn’t been deemed good enough by two coaches now.

2 - Or maybe it’s to do with us not having a plethora of options at Centre due to the Squad Bennett has picked and the overall options available.
1 - B.French, possibly.
French, but on Escare - when tomkins was out injured nearly every fan on here was demanding that escare does not get bumped out the team because of how well he was playing

im not saying there isnt another issue with him possibly attitude but when he has played FB for us has hasnt let us down
Always be yourself - unless you can be Dan Bilzerian then ALWAYS be Dan Bilzerian!

Honestly I don't think French will be any better than Escare at fullback, similar build, leave him on the wing for my money, Hardaker has been as solid as a rock all season at FB,as for the GB match Bennett often plays players out of position so nothing new there.

French is an upgrade on Escare, whether that be wing, fullback or in the halves. Sometimes playing each individual in their strongest position isn't the best for the team. Hardaker is a better all round full back than French. However, having Hardaker in the centre instead of *Bibby, with French at fullback makes the team stronger overall.
*or any other current option.
** IMO
