I'd be very surprised if Saints offered Carmont a deal. They already have seven players over the age of 30 in their probable starting 17 next year.

From what I have heard Wigan have offered Carmont a one year deal, but he wants two which Celtic may offer.

Good luck to Gearge if he goes he has done a great job for Wigan in his time here.


I agree.

I think that people may need to steel themselves for the possiblity of George leaving.

It's very much the NRL (and the Melbourne) way that 'name' players leave in order to make way for exciting understudies. This may be a future pattern at Wigan from now on. It worked for us in the old days, when the likes of Hanley's and Andy Greg's departures allowed us to re-seed the bed, despite the worry and uncertainty among fans at the time.

George has a been a great buy for us, and a very loyal and effective servant, but he's a veteran. At 32, I see no sense in Wigan offering him a two-year deal. I'd also be surprised if Saints have done that, unless the stories about them having severe financial problems are absolutely true.

Carmont to Saints lol what ever next?

Not unless they'd want to start playing Soliola in the 2nd row and i can't see why they'd want to do that with such a talented young player? He’s their centre for the next 5+ years imo and he’s going to be a big player for them.

So is Carmont going to replace Gidley? Or is Carmont going to be a back up for either centre? If so what will happen to Wheeler?

This rumour is a none starter for far to many reasons.

Celtic looks the favourite as it would be good for both the player and Celtic. He gets his security and a good wage and the club gets a model pro and a dam good player.

I just hope Goulding or Pryce can step up the mark.

Not that I believe the Saints rumour but a lot of people consider Soliola's best position to be the second row.

That could very well be true in the NRL as the centres there are expected to have a bit more ball handling ability than what he’s got but as far as SL centres go he’d be up there with the best of them.

There must have been better 2nd row options out there if they were looking for a 2nd row which is one of the reasons I think he was brought in as a centre as it’s a position they need.

The limited number of times I've seen the reserves I've been most impressed by either Marsh or Charnley, particularly with the one who has the mullet.

In the long run though I see Thornley to have the most potential. Marsh IMO would be a great ouside back, he has been highly tipped since he was 12 years old and I was playing against him when he played for Pats.

Charnley is also a good player, I really hope we can hold on to them all and in a years time make sure they have all had a bit more of a taste of first team action.
Dropkick Murphy..we actually saw and heard a mass of bouncing and scarf and flag waving to Dale Cavese that drowned out anything we could muster.. It stopped us singing our own celebratory songs, it died out seconds later when we accepted we couldn't be heard over the Wigan lot
Celebrations muted from us, job done from them. Most fans who slag them off are jealous their own club's support is nowhere near that good

sally cinnamon..Why not discuss Wigan? It's a rugby league message board. Wigan are the most famous brand in rugby league

Tre Cool..Saints fans are hopeless unless it's a cup final or grand final. Wigan fans are so much more loyal and passionate

the flying biscuit..Wires havent been massively succesful over the years, but I've spoke to Brian Bevan And he spoke to me and i wouldnt swap that for Wigans History, ever

Ande..on the TV i could only hear the Wigan fans with about 10 to go

If George is allowed to leave it will be the worse decision since Furner was shown the door, George is by far one of our top 3 of our players, give him 2 years and in his second don't play him when we are playing the lower end of the table, bring a youngster in instead

I agree, as soon as Carmont were to get any sort of injury no matter how small he should be withdrawn until 100% while a youngster gets a chance to play first team in his place.

I would expect George to go with Noble, if Celtic come up with the 2 year deal.

I think Noble has enough contacts in the game to give Celtic a competitive squad.

You may be right but that would be a bad idea not to offer him 2 years if he wants it.
