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.

Blood and sand the guy has a good debut for wire and we turn on our players.

Yep. Because one thing I do know intelligent players play the 13 role and you think smithies is that one?!?
Can you define intelligent please in this context?

Just because Lockers was a ball playing 13 does not mean every single player to follow has to be. Not many forwards in the league have this ability so it isn’t fair to point the finger at smithies for it.

It goes down to tactics and what you want from a 13.
- ball playing forward
- hard working second rower
- extra prop

Smithies is a tackling machine, he’s cut down on the penalties and started making a lot more yards this season.

Well when you look at our last 2 loose forwards have been lockers and Farrell who were intelligent players, I guess you could say I thought Wigan would carry on with that trend with the kind of player they’d have a loose as that’s what they’ve done for so long

Locking this thread.

1) Nicholson doesn’t play for us anymore so the rumour has been proved correct.

2) Thread has totally gone off the original topic!
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage. #18thMan
