New Prop

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.

Once we wanted a prop.
If we're still interested then one Liam Watts will be at the DW on Thursday.
The big rumour around Cas is that Lee Radford could well be appointed as Powell's successor as Head Coach.
As we know, Radford and Watts had a bust up at Hull FC which resulted in the prop going to Cas.
If there is any truth in the rumour then perhaps someone at the club might have a word with Mr Watts and let him know if his new coach and him don't get on and he's looking elsewhere then look no further than Wigan.
A bit fanciful on my part but I can only hope!
We should have gone for Watts at that time Ted IMO
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.

Couldn’t understand why the club didn’t move for Watts before he went to Cas very good player

as far as I'm aware the club would still like a prop, I've heard nothing to suggest otherwise. But I think it partly depends on when & how many fans can attend home games this season.

If we cannot buy a prop until we see the attendance then we are in a sad state after all the players we have moved on and sold :o :o

He was targeted last night and by the end of the game he knew it too.
In a different way we targeted Truman as well. Never saw him all night and his influence was zero.

i was listening to talksport 2 and the commentators were loving Singleton and Watts clashing with each other. Said it was proper old school hard props going at each other
