Bateman

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.

Sam T, Sutton, Bateman, Williams, Budgie . . ????

An alternative hypothesis: Wigan's history of producing top players attracts the best and most ambitious young kids here in their mid teens. This skill and ambition are the very same qualities that draw young players in their early 20s to play in the NRL.
Very good point.

Maybe with a good pre season they may turn him into a good offloading 2nd rower, pure guess btw. 🤷

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
