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.

I really am getting confused. Wigan are struggling for props and now one who has been playing better than some regular players ( he didn’t play in the French debacle) is going on loan, another prop has signed elsewhere for next season, we are struggling for centres and have two on loan, our hooker is taking a pasting from people on here and we have two on loan. Lam will have no players to pick from to drop any players under performing because of them all being on loan. Maybe it is a great master plan that will blindside everyone but if nothing changes there will be more results like the last one. Lam may not rate the players he is allowing to go on loan but they are part of the squad he has to pick from and the only players he can pick to try and change things. He must have a lot of faith in Gildart and Marshall making a huge difference when they return soon, personally l have my reservations about anything changing. There was a lot of positivity and hope at the start of the season with the backs we have but it turns out we have no forwards. Just what role who had where and who signed and let go who, we will never know, but Lam must have been happy with the squad pre-season so why let players go on loan when you need to change things. They may not be good enough but can anybody say the team at Catalan was? Now we know nothing will change because there will be no players left at Robin Park that aren’t in Lams current underperforming first team squad.

It has taken so long to get Clark out on loan and then when we finally do its only for 2 weeks?

Rads said he was one of the best props in super league, we hardly seen enough of him to see if thats true and now he's on his way to Gateshead for a fortnight.

He'll only miss 1 game, and its one he should have had a chance in.

Not sure what is worse. That comment towards a player the majority of us hadn't heard of or re-signing Tony Clubb to a 2 year contract.

By the looks of it the Captain is steering the ship onto the rocks I mentioned a few weeks back i was genuinely worried about the club I can only assume we are selling off players before a new owner is coming into the hot seat.
Not long ago IL denied a new director at the club with a big share was taking over then after the denial we see the club selling players right left and centre , is our chairman re cooping his losses before he goes mmmmm :roll: :roll:
