Got a hot rumour from a source inside the club, or just something you heard down the pub? Then what are you waiting for, post it on The Rumour Mill.

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.

Think Ben has been very consistent for many a season! If he has no future at the club, lets hope he doesn't go down the 'Escare' route and he finds a new club to secure his future (whether it be Toronto or whoever).

Certainly still SL standard IMO!

Never really hit the heights I thought he was capable of. Probably due to the big injuries he seems to always get.

Too injury prone to be relied upon as a starting prop in my eyes.

Do we have any stats that show how many games he’s played in last 3 seasons? Can’t be much more than half in each year.

In 7 full seasons to date with Wigan, Flower has played 175 times, therefore averaging 25 games a season. I don’t think that is bad at all, for a prop forward. He has been injured more over the last 2 season but has been one of our consistent performers in the period he has been with us. We still need experience up front, considering the youth already and the players off contract at the end of the year IMO ... also wouldn’t think he is on big money, so who do you replace him with? NRL players likely to want more money
