We have replaced irreplacable players before. Bateman would be a loss but not the end of the world. There are plenty of second rowers out there who graft and score a lot more tries....... SOL on the other hand....


Both at the same time on the other hand......

He didn't. He signed a contract to finish his playing career at Wigan with no end date. Could hang his boots up after next season.

The policy of writing into contracts that players can move to the NRL, although well intentioned, needs reviewing.

That would be an excellent incentive for him to have moved to one of our competitors in the meantime. Being a stepping stone to the NRL is a good reason for top UK players to sign for Wigan.

Williams, Tomkins, Gildart, Davies, Burgess etc
How much do you think they would cost if you had to buy them from a rival club?
SAINTS THE ORIGINAL AND PERENNIAL CHEATS

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy
For 75 - 0 you get sod all.

Wigan had eight in a row
Saints have five in a row

Theirin lies the problem, we believe that we have superstars when they clearly are not. Good players they are yes but don’t get good mixed up with superstar.
1998,2010,2013 & 2016.....I was there

At SL level they are superstars, who would you swap them for from Superleague?
