He refused to come home (at first) because Wigan would not release him from his contract to sign for Wests, Wests are now trying to sign him (transfer fee), Wigan are not happy with Hastings/His Agent and the way they are going about everything. I've been told there is a good chance this is why he isn't in the squad for tomorrow. some news should come out today, although I doubt its directly from the club. I would assume it leaks in Aus first from the players agent.

Great player I agree, but too much of a distraction to the group with the constant speculation. hard to replace if he leaves.

I wonder if those who where praising and excusing him a couple of weeks back will be doing the same in a few weeks time IF this FLIMSY rumour becomes true :?:

Jackson Hastings wanted by NRL club immediately

Wests Tigers have launched a fresh bid to prise Jackson Hastings away from Wigan.

Officials from the NRL club met with Hastings' Australian management team yesterday to try and thrash out a deal.

The Sydney Morning Herald is reporting the Tigers may pay a transfer fee to sign Hastings, who only returned to training with Wigan last week and is not in the squad for their opener against Leigh tomorrow night.

Wests - coached by former Wigan boss Michael Maguire - showed interest in the former Man of Steel in the off-season.

But a winless start has forced them to move urgently to try and snare him now.

Legend Garry Jack tweeted: "Jackson Hastings would be an excellent signing for Wests. I would personally love to see him there."

Hastings, 25, is entering his second season with Wigan. He was given an extended break in the off-season to spend more time with his family, including his ill granddad.

The former Sydney Roosters and Manly playmaker has made no secret of his intention to return to the NRL at some stage.

If he departed, it would be a blow to Wigan, given his quality. But they do have other options at halfback, with Thomas Leuluai, Harry Smith and Hastings' friend - and new signing - Jai Field at the club.

Hastings' agent, Sam Ayoub, also manages Adrian Lam.

Not a rumour mate they want him now, Wigan are aware of it, weather they get him is a different story. If he stays at Wigan it doesn't mean this was just a rumour, it means it just didn't come to fruition. the bloke will never be settled in England and for that reason alone id get rid of him. may as well get some money for him instead of having a year of disruption then him leave for nothing anyway.
