There is a video of Jake’s early career playing for Huddersfield & England but what I can’t understand is why the Giants let him go! 🤔🤔 First to Wire then to us! Is Watson a coach who has favourites??
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.

that takes a lot of courage. #18thMan

No, he is just not very good.

always remember an item on the long forgotten rugby am show about Salford,Watson was in charge and one of the questions was does the coach have favourites and the answer was of course he does, indeed Lee Mossop was a name the players interviewed mentioned so yes I think he does have his favoured players.

Is he any good well that's becoming clear that with Huddersfield he isn't

Rumour was they clashed over his form/position. Watson wanted him to play right edge, Wardle blamed his performances on being normally left sided. Think both thought the other was being awkward and sure I read they had words and that was the end for Wardle as Watson needed to make a dressing room statement re his authority.
I think Wigan had wanted him for a while and the link was formed when Matty Peet was assisting Lee Briers at England academy or knights. Pretty sure IL more or less told everyone at a corporate event at the start of the season before he signed that we had signed him. I always thought he would be good but I didn't realise how good, his tries and assists at the start this season are very good and he seems to be influencing games more and more.

Yes, he is all that & more.
