Really dissapointing criminally under rated.

That's a shame. But not suprised . Good luck to the lad. On positive side could be sign top centre coming in soon.

We've got to sign a centre surely? We only have thornley and halsall as "specialist" centres now

A bit gutted as I think he's been great for us - but fair play if he's had a better offer from Hudds or wants to work with Watson again. Good luck Bibby, hopefully can get some more silverware with us before he leaves :)

Was just gonna post on the french rumour that i hope we keep him…… hes never injured and has streadily improved as a centre…… i think its fair to say we need 2 centres now….. we cant rely on thornleys constant injuries

I hope Lenners bring in a spectacular centre to replace him but after the Powell kerfuffle I won't hold my breath

Not ideal given his injury record.

Availability is the best asset!

Better winger than centre imo and still has limitations there such as flying out the line and under the high ball.

He has however been improving at centre but still flys out a bit and isn’t a wingers centre.

We absolutely have to replace him with an out and our centre. Not a project and not a utility.

I’m sorry to see Jake Bobby go. He’s rarely injured and is now showing some excellent centre play.
I hope for his sake that Ian Watson isn’t NRL bound as rumoured on Love RL

It’s the better offer, he’d love to stay at Wigan he genuinely said to me. Obviously if you get a better offer it’s very hard to turn down 😟

Gutted he’s leaving if I’m honest. ☹️
