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.

Personally, I think Thornley is very solid centre & im happy he’s coming back, his size is a really threat. No weaknesses defensively.
True supporters will follow this club through thick and thin.
Where has anyone said they will stop being a Wigan fan?

What do you mean he retained French and Hastings? They were contracted for this year. GW is not a done deal but even if it is, what has that got to do with recruiting Thornley?

The fact they are even looking at him just shows a lazy approach to recruitment. It’s just easy to approach him rather than scout out something better. As soon as someone put his name on the table that should have been the signal to go and start scouting. I don’t think the club is a patch on how it used to be when we had people spotting talent like young players of the calibre of Betts and Jason Robinson.
