Have to agree,no wonder Catalan are looking at getting rid of him.

Seems that Oli Gildart has been released and is looking for a club for 2023.
Would be a surprise signing if he was a in a Wigan shirt next year.

Would be an awful signing and a step back

Would take him and would have taken jack hughes back as well. Not against looking at Scott Taylor as well if fc don’t want him

Jack Hughes are you joking?!?
He wasn’t much of a player when he was here last time, and he looks worse now.

1) We have already sorted our centres for next year & arguably beyond if King performs.

2) Hasn't Gildart already signed with Redcliffe?

Are you saying hypothetically you would take them back and not considering our 2023 squad? Or are you saying you would take them knowing what we already have in our 2023 squad?

Centre - We already have King, Wardle, Thornley in the centres for next year with Bateman and KPP able to cover if injuries get bad.

Second Row - We have Farell, Bateman, KPP, Smithies, Isa.
Bomhead - "Lockers to prop."

I don't think Bateman will be here next year, so I definitely think there will be a signing still to be made.

Smithies is our loose forward. The driving force behind the team. Don't see him as a second rower anymore
