I would take him as player-coach right now and get rid of Wane asap, Lockers has more rugby brains in his little finger than Caesar has ever had.

That's the one drawback.

How long can we keep relying on a guy in his mid-30s?

I think we would be wise to our style when he retires (maybe an opportunity for a new coach to make the side his own). When you look around the league, there aren't really many ball playing loose forwards around anymore. Where Saints and Leeds had Sculthorpe and Sinfield, they now have LMS and Cuthbertson. A big loose forward would help make up for our lightweight second row, and it wouldn't wreck our game plan when a reserve comes in, as the job would be simpler. Of course to do this, we would need far more creativity from 7 and 9 than we currently get.

Wigan and England captain signs new deal but you wouldn't know it unless you saw the back end of tweet from the club about the awards dinner. Nothing at all on the club website and therefore not being picked up by major media outlets yet.
