Before I start to say this lets make it clear Sean was not to blame for our defeat last night or our dreadful start to the season.

I have always had respect for Sean, a Wigan lad, with great tradition in his family, a excellant player. But it is clear to see that the pressure of leadership is weighting heavey on his shoulders, take the burdern off him and give it to someone else and let the boy play. The only problem with this is who to give it to, Smith is a talker but depending on him till he finds his form is not right. IMO it should be Fielden or Carmont. There was one point last night I think when pryce scored Smith & Fielden where all over him geeing him up and talking to the other team players, Sean just walked past with his hands on his hips not saying anything. For his own career, reputation and personal performance I think Sean should step down and just concerntrate on playing for the team he loves.

Sean had a terrible game last night. Dropped balls under no pressure, gave away 3 or 4 stupid penalties and threw a stupid ball back and lost us 30 yards in the last set of the game. Oh and the kick out on the full.

Awful performance last night he really needs to learn how to grip the ball :x

Not a captain never has been but I'm not blaming him for all the teams performances etc etc I just don't think he is a captain.

The captain's debate aside, I don't think too many would argue that O'Loughlin was awful last night.

That is actually a school boy error he had noooo pressure on him and a huge space to kick into.

On the captain front. Who would replace him? :roll:

And there is a big problem for Wigan and the main idea in which our recruitment for 2010 should be.

The squad needs experienced players with a rugby league brain.

Anthony Minichello to replace Mathers and Matt Orford to replace Smith. Andy Lynch to come in for Andy Coley. Get shut of Phelps and Bailey with Ainscough and Mossop be drafted in.
