Hastings Replacement.....

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.

George has told Wigan he wants to come back. Don't listen to any links/rumours with other SL clubs.

(As of now id say 80% sure he is in cherry and white again next season) I did not think it would happen when I first found out Wigan want him back.

Also on the George Burgess front. There is a growing confidence that he may play again.
Good news & great news regarding Burgess 😊
Isn't he off cap and our salary now though?

At the moment yes he is, Hastings & Bateman are the Marquee players. but with Hastings leaving, we have plenty of room to pay Burgess and Williams, There has been conversations around the contract Burgess would theoretically be on and its obviously not marquee Level. Im also hearing there is a good chance Mitch Clark leaves the club this month. Clubs in a good place financially and they are being strategic in recruitment. I think the fact we didn't sign a replacement prop came off the back of a whisper Williams would be interested in a return & the club didnt want to price themselves out of the equation by not having the cap space.

Dan up to now you've been pretty consistent with your insights so hope this is spot on regarding both George's

Would George come back to us if he can play again, or just be on the open market?

Be a massive gamble to sign burgess again regardless of what contract he’s on.

I think the Club and GB will already have had a conversation about the possibility of him returning.

They may have done, but if he can get more elsewhere when he returns I imagine he'd do that? Unless we still hold his reg or something.
