Wigan knew about the release, they have cap space.

Warrington will struggle to sign him now unless its on a low contract till the end of the season.

Leeds have a hell of a lot of cap space.

Its about to get interesting.

Honestly, I would say yes. He did have a 4 year contract agreed starting 2022.

Its in Wigan's best interest to get it done now.

But I could also see it being announced that he has signed from 2022 onwards (and play for Leeds for 6 months now)

I Could also see Hastings heading to tigers immediately if we secure George immediately and not starting 2022


How/when its going to happen I do not know, but 100% he had agreed to sign for us from 2022 onwards. I've not heard anything since.

Only issue is I've only heard "Agreed" not "Signed"

My only concern with the "agreed" not "Signed" statement is...

Warrington were whoring Austin around a couple of weeks ago.

Why do that half way through a season? They are clearly pushing for George but ultimately in my opinion Wigan get it done.

We don't need George this season, he just makes an unbalanced back line selection problem even worse and probably prevents the development of a long term wigan half back option. If we want him for next year, then fine, but this season he doesn't fit.

I personally think he signs for 2022 onwards and finds a short term SL contract until then.

Although he isn't required now and doesn't solve any problems at FB, Wing, Centre, if getting him now is key to securing him from 2022 onwards then we should go for it.
