Yes I bloody know transfer fees do not count on the salary cap for those illiterates that need it explaining to them because they assume everyone is as thick as they are :roll:

I don't think so meds. Not progressed as expected even with lone in championship never stood out. There's a few more to go yet too. Have to agree with IL on this needs to be more ruthless with culling if we want big signings on top pay. We cant have it both ways moaning when we let players go and moaning for not signing top stars. Well for me he has done a blinder in signings for me.
I agree 100%. You can’t have it both ways.
No disrespect meant, but we kept too many for too long that were not good enough. You can’t keep them all, and to be fair, Wigan haven’t let many go recently that have come back to haunt us.
We do seem to get it right most of the time.

Can’t keep them all... Sami is a good Leyther lad he will be a success
Rugby, Family and Strava... that’s about it for me tbh

I’ve seen Ellery Hanley, Martin Offiah and been dragged to Wigan games since memory... absolutely lucky!

Correct.

Woods at Leigh isn't going to make it so should be let go.
Mullen also is one winger too many and should be let go.

Should have let Clubb go and kept a lad full of potential in Kibula.

Pie in the sky. They would need more than Kibula moving on.They would have to let a couple of first teamers go before they could even consider a signing anyone let alone a good one. There is simply no money to play with. I think them lessons have been learnt.
True, but he may not be the only one leaving. If Woods is also let go (which in my opinion, he should be as he hasn't really impressed at Leigh and we have better options) along with maybe Escare then we should have enough cap space to bring someone decent in.

With regards to Kibula, it's a shame, I like the lad and I think this could turn out to be a big mistake. But as others have said, can't keep them all.

Barnes and Kibula to leave Wigan

Post by josie andrews » Wed Sep 11, 2019 9:03 pm

Fringe prop forwards Caine Barnes and Samy Kibula will leave Wigan Warriors at the end of the season.

Cumbrian born Caine Barnes has signed a permanent deal with Workington Town having spent two loan spells at Derwent Park over the last two seasons.

20-year old Samy Kibula will head to Warrington Wolves after the conclusion of his contract at the end of the season. He made one senior appearance during his time at the DW Stadium and is currently on-loan at Swinton Lions after a brief spell at Dewsbury Rams earlier this season.

Wigan Warriors’ Transition Coach, Darrell Goulding: “Both Caine and Samy have found opportunities hard to come by in the Wigan Warriors senior set-up since their promotion from the academy. We wish them well in the future and we thank them for their efforts.”

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.
