Never really rated him to be honest, maybe Saints fans have a different view.

I've never been able to reconcile his articulate and savvy media appearances, with the grubby on-field antics; but fair play to him for his longevity and success in the game.

Retiring, or off to Toronto?

Not big enough for international RL. Had gone into a state of torpor under fatty, but rejuvenated under Holbrook. My favourite memory is Senior decking him at Headingley.

Fine as a pundit but one of the worst losers of recent memory. It became standard for every Saints GF loss to be followed by a Wilkin whine and complaint.

Decent enough player in his earlier days but as his career has passed he has become more and more niggly and a bit of a cheap shot merchant IMO

Grub. His longevity at Saints is almost as baffling as Paul Cloughs 10 years there.
