Absolutely nothing in this whatsoever.

The entire Farrell family use Fairhurst Accountants in Wigan for all their business/investment management.

Owen has recently had a house built down South for himself & his family. He also has a contract at Saracens until at least the end of season 23/24.

Andy recently signed a contract extension with Ireland so won’t be taking over from Eddie Jones after the RWC next year.

It was only last week on an England Rugby podcast that he was speaking about League & saying how different the sports are these days from when he used to play as a kid & how difficult it is to swap codes.

Complete non-starter.

Ive heard he wants to retire at Wigan, id expect any potential move to be at least 2 years off…..

I read that the address in Wigan is the home of a wealth management company so theres nothing in it on that basis.

Owen would make a great coach when he retires from playing if he decides that's what he's like to do. I like the idea of him switching back to league for his coaching career. Unlikely but more likely than him ever playing league again.

No I disagree. He's played the game at youth level and knows the rules/tactics.

If he did come, it would be as a cameo in a couple of years. He could put "bums on seats" as it were.

The biggest issue would be if he was/could be fit enough to justify a spot.

Agreed,the game has changed so much it’d end up being a waste of time and money.
