According to the NRL TV show NRL 360 on Wednesday night March 20 Australian time (Fox Sports and www.watchnrl.com), George WIlliams is in negotiations with Canberra to play there in 2020. It was claimed the only issue remaining is the size of the transfer fee that Wigan wants.

This will be a big opportunity for Williams and Canberra to achieve greatness if he can perform well there. But it will be a big hole for Wigan to fill in finding a replacement.

I must be missing something with him. For every good game I see him have, he has ten anonymous ones and a couple of stinkers.
He’s on marquee money at Wigan and isn’t worth it. They will be glad to get him off the books I suspect.

If he does go to Canberra, it would be a good fit.

How many times have you seen him play if one game in 15 is a good one. Do you go to every Wigan game? Why would you do that if you are a cas fan. That’s just weird

They are on sky nearly every week and from what I see of him he is overrated.

He’s played 140 games.
I’ve seen him play every game against Castleford.
Considering that four (and sometimes six) or the 12 teams play on TV every week, and Wigan feature more than the average, I’ve seen him enough.
Of course nobody can see EVERY player in EVERY game, but it’s possible to see enough of a player who has played 140 games to form an opinion.
I’m guessing you have an opinion on players who play for clubs other than your own. My opinion is that George Williams isn’t actually that good.

He's not the best in the world by any means but at 24 years old he has won 2 Grand Finals (played in 4), 1 WCC (played in 4) and played in a CC Final and 12 games for England (won 9/12).

How many other English halves can boast a better record than that at his age, or in their whole career?

Rated very highly by Aus pundits including Andrew Johns. Wayne Bennett is also a big fan so Williams must have skills that engender such praise.

Believed that Canberra have offered him a 3 year contract.
