I think it's good business.
Pies had a shat season last year. Some new blood is/was needed.

Like us getting shut of Gleeson for his reasons opened a few eyes...it was great business imo.

MM is little different to us with Mick Higham...is it better to let a player go a season too early or a possible season too late?

What new blood are they getting? they're not, thats the point, and it seems to be a bone of contention that they keep releasing players, nrl/union and then they come back on bigger money, older, in worse condition and form.

I am going to say that losing McIlorum means more than just losing a bit of bite in midfield. He had a mongrel/steel in him that used to intimidate most prop forwards. He had the heart of a Lion and did not worry about his own welfare. When the chips were down, he never died wondering. Having Tommy L at 9 and Tomkins at 7 will not replace this. He will be a big loss for the pies.


He also added a kicking game to his play in the last few years and IMO is a belting Hooker.

A huge loss for Wigan that.

I thought wigan would have struggled with the injury to McLlorum last year more than they actually did. So i think they can cope without him but i think Catalan will benefit more from this move. If he plays with the same intensity it might improve their resilliance.
With regard to the Gelling move i dont think this will be a problem for them as they have an abundance of quality outside backs with Burgess, Sargeson, Gildart as well as Bateman and at a push Joel Tomkins that can all play centre.

I reckon they have more depth than us at centre and also arguably at hooker as well.
Injuries to key leaders will be crucial to how their season goes.
