Even with the marque spots

Blake Austin and Gareth Widdop, that is going to be taking a massive chunk of the cap. i can only hope this will weaken them in other areas as i believe they will have the best half backs in SL next year.

they may actually a grand final at last.

Still baffles me how they can afford all these players even though their marquee signings. I know there youngsters might not be on as much ours but I can imagine charnley, ratchford and Atkins being on a decent wedge.

You forget Cas were a mid table side until they started spending to the cap and when they did, they got to a grand final which was until they did it, a fixture dominated by the big spenders. They were undone by Hardaker of course but if you look at who’s been in the GF you won’t find many appearances by cheapskate sides.

You can’t get away from that and up to now Wigan have spent as much if not more than anyone being the first to sign two marquee players. If we can no longer keep up and so lose out on players like Austin and Widdop, we will just have to hope it’s only Wire with deeper pockets if the move to three marquee players comes off.

There is no evidence for Wigan under spending. In fact, anyone can simply check the accounts.
The key advantage we will always have over Warrington is that we produce the Smithies and Smiths of the game, through our junior investment which matters far more than gambles on imported players.
The teams we need to worry about regularly are those, principally Leeds, though Saints as well to an extent (and Bradford back in the day), who grow their own and spend up to the cap.
