No great loss on the face of it, looking a little short on numbers should we get a couple of injuries.

If Navarette and/or Hamlin can step up, then hopefully a big chunk of the salary cap without losing anything on the pitch.


Pretty much my thoughts. After Pettybourne and Hauraki I was hoping for a proper import with talent and aggression. He just never seemed settled and never at his best.

Good luck to the guy, no animosity. He and the club move on and we have some cap space should the need arise.

Maybe expect a ZH announcement?

Can't say he'll be missed.

All the impact of a ping-pong ball, more often than not and at 31, he's not going to get any better, I wouldn't have thought.

Just hope we can bring someone in - Preferably a specialist right centre, and absolutley NOT Hardaker for me (should be banned for 2 years).

Slim chance we’ll bring someone new in now. Suspect we’ll bank the spare cash in case we have yet another injury crisis and need to bring someone in mid-season. Just hope it’s not on the level of Larne Patrick or Andy Powell.

Whilst he may not have delivered what we all hoped for, I think he’s had more stick than he deserved. Don’t forget that when we suffered the major injury crisis last season, FPN was an ever present in a very often inexperienced side. His performances were steady if not spectacular and I wish him and his family well.

I only hope we use the cap space well and maybe offer half of it to Bateman!!

If you are a top earner and don't perform then criticism is I feel almost inevitable. He may have played on a regular basis but he never really turned up. His missus telling everyone that wanted to listen or even if they didn't that she couldn't stand Wigan only fuelled resentment amongst many fans.
I just thought that he was pretty useless and for the size of the guy a little embarrassing with ball in hand. As you say though good luck to him and his family as you wouldn't want any ill luck to fall on anyone.

Re Bateman I partly share your sentiments however, if he is determined to go then let the lad go.

May sound harsh but I'll be happy when he's gone. Ending this 'will he won't he go' boring saga.

We have depth in the props, his cap space can be used to better effect elsewhere.

Bye bye Frank you ever-present plodder.

I have to say the criticism has been OTT, I am pleased and no doubt so is he that he’s gone. I have a wife and kids and can’t imagine living on the opposite side of the world to them. There’s no doubt that would have affected his performances.

So his full wage for this season counts on the cap then?
