We are losing 8 players and only recruited 2 players from overseas to replace them I know we got young players coming through but it feels like the squad and team is being gutted from the inside

Which basically, as good as he did or didnt play…. A fullback is deemed better at centre than a player who is a natural centre, added to that Hankinson is a better kicker. Just shows kicking isn't everything.
The fb you refer to is Zak (International player) who has been moved to accommodate French!! Explain that?

When Hank was playing well then lost his place to players who were favourites etc..reflects poorly on the coach who is currently ruining this once World famous club to an embarrassing shambles, whether Hankinson is good enough or not is down to opinion, he also made an impression v Hurrel at Leeds, his goal kicking 5/5 contributed to winning the game, so please don't be so disrespectful

if Hankinson had been playing in the GF he would've slotted those kicks Zak missed, kicking is everything when it matters!!

If you don't like him fair enough but stop talking bollocks kicking is essential in winning games
Kicking isnt everything when you are an average player. You could have a player that never misses a kick. But if they are not a good enough player they will not be played. Simple as that. If Hankinson played the GF we would of lost my more points. Guarantee it.

Nobody is saying he cant kick. But the fact he can kick doesn't mean he should be playing. He isnt good enough.

Your Zak moving to accommodate French point isnt very valid either. Have you seen Lams selections?

Is it Regan Grace?! St Helens have said he's resigned a 1 year extension and I'm 99% sure I heard a commentator say St Helens will miss him next year!
Commenters are divs and couldn’t tell Regan from Naiqama. Bit ignorant tbh and not a good look for them.

I'll stop this now, Yes, I have seen Lams selections, they are absolutely amazing its what has got Wigan to be playing the outstanding rugby we've been waiting for what on earth are you chatting, Lams selections have been woeful, the evidence is there for all to see

THE END!!!

Exactly, Lams selections have been woeful. So dont try and discredit Zak by saying Lam prefers French at FB. You cant say Zak was moved to accommodate French (implying zak isnt all that) and then say Lams selections are woeful 🤣🤣

Ask the fans: disappointment

Ask Lam: Attacking flamboyant Rugby

Thats the most concerning thing. Don't know how many times he can say “we’ll be ok” or “we’ll get better”

I would add to that Dan, ‘abject’ disappointment.
