New Winger

Post by Dan2266 »

Wigan in the past few days have begun exploring the possibility of bringing in a new winger for next season & beyond.

Not sure who they're looking at.

Should be looking for a couple of centres and a 9 before anything else

Agree, that's all I've been told, not sure how high on the list of priorities it is.

It'll be another project player no doubt. Probably Ritson from Barrow

Is he not going to Saints? Sure I've seen that somewhere

Haven't heard anything Dan, I'm a Wigan fan living in a Rugby Union town so no gossip in my neck. I rely on you guys 👍

Can't understand why we'd be looking at a winger when we already have one (Miski) that we're hardly using. Are we intending to move Miski on to free up a quota place or does our search for another winger imply that we know Bevan is leaving? As an earlier poster noted, the priority must be another centre surely?

I notice Jacob Smillie scored for our reserves this week. Is he the same Jacob Smillie who was the very quick winger who used to play for Halifax? Perhaps we've signed/ are trialing him

Looks like him on pics I've just looked at, Is he any good?
