No Newton signed for Leeds and Wigan when hew was at Judes, Leeds took Wigan to court and won so Newton went to Leeds then Wigan signed him from there a few years later, Robinson played for Hunslt after Parkside so was a semi pro player in the lower divisions before signing for wigan, Charnley and farrell were both Academy players but went out on loan and played first team rugby for other clubs before breaking into the Wigan first team
It wasn't Wigan it was Warrington who Newton signed for as well as Leeds and Leeds took them to court to get his signature.

Here's a challenge for somebody with more patience than me, How about a list of the best Cumbrians who have played for Wigan
