I read somewhere he said someone like Powell or Faz should be captain, as both wigan lads and Faz a legend !!

They should wait until after pre-season so they can see who steps up and starts to fill the void of Lockers. And then combine that with how they conduct themselves on the field.

We can probably guess its between Powell, Farrell, Bateman.
What about Tommy?
Leaving in 1 year and dependent on how Jai Field and Harry Smith do may not play every game.
Same as Lockers then.

Harry Smith has gone to Halifax on loan
That’s an interesting one Josie. Obviously, Lam doesn’t think he will get much game time at Wigan this season. It may be make or break for both lads.

It’s with there not being the Reserve games so he needs to have game time so I suppose it’s just until Tommy finally hangs his boots up. (I could see him going round again!)
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

Will there be a season for Halifax without fans though?

Don’t know, but if the championship clubs do get a season going it will be a good move for him to get game time with the Reserves cancelled 😊

Thought it was Amir Bourouh who has gone on loan to Halifax.

If Smith has gone on loan to 'fax I do hope that it's a normal loan with the recall clause and not a season long loan.

Makes no sense at all.
Smith should be starting in some games and bench in others to get him up to speed for next season when TL has retired from playing. I was looking forward to seeing quite a bit of Smith this year as he offers a great deal and is an exciting player.

Do they do loan deals for head coaches?
