Yes we did do OK with Escaré at full-back, but the team as a whole were playing a lot better then. Displacing Hardaker to throw him in at full-back in the current farrago seems quite another matter to me, and quite unwise.
Agree, do you think he would have stopped Murdoch-Masila on Saturday? However I do think he should have played on the wing in place of Hankinson who twice got caught in the first half when he had god running chances.
As for some of the other comments, who do the posters think is telling Lam not to play Escare?
My own opinion of the Lam/Escare affair is he just doesn’t rate him,he’s a jack of all trades type of player..play on the wing,at prop,he’s a hooker you’ve see the posts.
I never,other than he must have come cheaply,why he was signed after all of I recall rightly young Lewis was still at Wigan when he arrived at least to begin with,it really made no s3nse whatsoever in him signing as he’s a similar stature as Tierney and build too,and it didn’t solve the issues that Lewis had,being barged out of play etc,Escare does seem to have the same sort of issues..least it seems that way to me.
He’s fast,he can scoot (whatever that means) but so could Lewis..as I say you sign a player to bring something different because all Wigan did was bring the exact same player that they already had at the time,that Tierney has gone to Catalan and looks a far better player than when he was at Wigan is a credit to him,I’m sure too that if Escare moves he will do a fine job at the club he lands at.
On Saturday I thought Lam got it right with Hankinson he tried to tie off Lineham which mr Hanky pretty well for a while,plus Wigan seem to use the wingers as battering rams going from side to side so is his stature against him being used on the wing now?
