Sensible move for Tierney and maybe he can play his way to a contract offer from the Dragons. Hope this isn't a sign that Navarrete is finished at Wigan as, although raw, he's impressed me with his aggression and go forward whenever he's played. His defence is suspect as others have pointed out previously but as a work in progress I feel he's worth keeping at the club.
'Do you remember when we had that meeting in Orlando? We talked about how we were knocked out the previous year by Leeds. And at the end, I asked you one question. "Do you want to be a semi-final team? Or do you want to do something special?" You all said you wanted to win. But talking is easy – it needed you to believe. It needed you to work hard – harder than you had – and make sacrifices. You did all that. you worked for each other. You stuck together when it was tough. And because of your efforts, you sit here tonight as champions. I'm proud of you. Be proud of yourselves. You've done something special.'

depends if he gets his head sorted

“With regards to Romain, he has become increasingly unsettled in recent weeks and has flown home several times to be with his sister who has recently had a baby.

“Family is clearly very important to Romain and it is not fair on someone to see them so visibly down. With the return of several First Team players in recent weeks Romain’s game-time has also been limited. Consequently we have agreed a loan deal with Catalans as we believe this is the right thing to do for both the player and the Club.

Navarette was told after Leigh game wouldn't play for Wigan again, so not a suprise and the comment at the end indicates his future

“We will continue to monitor the situation going forwards and wish Romain well for the rest of the season.”

Reading between the lines, it seems both of them may be on the way out, Navarette after this season and Tierney when his contract runs out next year. No great loss really, especially Tierney, who is already 5th choice behind Burgess, Manfredi, Davies and Marshall for the wing spots, and 3rd choice behind Tomkins and Escare at fullback.

The biggest news there is the "imminent" return of Manfredi. Hopefully on the wing against Leeds next week. I wonder if we have a recall option for Lewis though should Dom pick up a strain, which I think is quite common after so long out.

Not sure we will need him even if Dom gets re-injured!

As suggested on Mikes forum . Quite possibly Manfredi was de-registered and we might need space on the Cap to bring him back .

Shame that Navarette doesn't seem to be working out, there's definitely a good player in there somewhere.

Would be nice if Lewis plays well enough for us to get a transfer fee for him, come the end of the season. There are a few clubs in SL that are short of good wingers (including one we're playing tonight) and if he can show that he could do the business when not playing in our system, I can see there being a bit of competition for his signature.

But if Dom gets a strain we will still have Marshall and Davies, both of whom are better than Tierney. The only issue is who goes to fullback if Sam pulls up injured (I hope not).
