We have no obligation surely to promise him a coaching role. Surely he or anyone gets jobs like that on merit. He
May have to start at Hunslet via Pia and West Wales before any thought of a Wigan role.

Best man for the job it should be not old boys. If he has the skills then good, if he hasn’t we shouldn’t keep him.
Rugby, Family and Strava... that’s about it for me to be honest!

I was at a sportsmans dinner in 2017 and Shaun Wane was the guest speaker. Someone in the audience asked if Wane thought that Sean O'Loughlin would make a good coach.

His answer was " Technically no problem, he is one of the smartest players I have ever coached BUT coaching is only about 30% of the head coaches job. The other 70% is about dealing with all the other sh!t that goes with it.

I'm sure that Sean isn't being considered as a first team coach just yet but it would be reassuring to think that he's being considered and trained up for the role eventually.
Why is it reassuring? It's just the opposite for me because I don't see why his succession to the role would be preordained.

Mind you it's an easy option. The club doesn't have to go and find and persuade a top coach to come here then.
