Got something to discuss about RL in general? Then this is the place to post it.
I dunno. The difference between 6 & 7 is moot these days, at most clubs anyway, including Canberra. George plays mostly on the right, with Wighton on the left. And as far as kicking game is concerned, he has always been a much better short kicker than long, and still is. He lacks the big boot of a Mitchell Moses or a Shaun Johnson, and in fact Wighton has a much bigger boot than he has. And I sometimes wonder how he's go on his preferred left side, as he did at Wigan, but I guess they wouldn't move Wighton from his preferred position. All that said, if you want to divide halves into 'running halves' and 'organisers', I guess George does fall more into the latter role, and Wighton the former. Anyway it's working for the Raiders at the moment.
Looks a much better player than when at Wigan. As does Sutton. You could say it’s because they are in a better team but then the Wigan “rejects” at Salford look better than they did at Wigan. It’s not a good look that in order to improve players need to leave the club!
That scenario has been going on for years, way back exciting player Eddie Cunningham struggled to get a first team position, and, stand off Chris Hesketh who couldn't keep a regular spot, moved on to Salford and became the Great Britain Tour Captain. You couldn't make it up!

Very true, and if you look around for the ex Wigan players still playing at other clubs, there's a team right there who could have beaten this current Wigan side. They all left for several reasons, money, contracts, fell out of favour with Rads or Wane etc. Look at this selection.
Or play Escare at fullback and Sam T half back. Hampshire on the bench with Navarette, Dudson, Greg Burke and Dom Crosby (if he's still playing)
That just highlights the players we have off-loaded.
