I know it’s a long shot, but if Gildart does end up leaving Wigan, this would certainly soften the blow...

They’re both wingers aren’t they? And I have to say are a shadow of their former selves. We’ve much better in our squad and I’d be astonished if we signed one of or both.
Can see them at Catalans/Salford/Hull KR

Josh plays centre and Brett usually on the wing but handy enough to play centre and fullback.

I agree they’re a bit older but they’re still very good players in a much better league. Only a pipe dream but I’d be happy to have Josh if Gildart is to leave.

Thought they were both wingers.

I don’t really see the point in signing either of them to be honest. We’d get a season or two at best and form would be questionable. Then you’ve got to factor in wages and I just don’t see signing one of them as being viable financially or physically. We’d be much better placed promoting from within or looking around SL/Championship for a quality/potentially quality centre than one of two has beens.

The Morris Twins are firmly in the “Avoid” column for me.

Josh Morris definitely plays centre. He can and has played wing, but for Australia and New South Wales he has played centre, sometimes with Brett Morris as his winger.

100% Warrior- your writing a player off as a has been yet you don’t even know his position!!so I will take your judgement with a pinch of salt.

I do apologise I don’t watch much NRL these days :roll:

Two 31yr old Centres/Wingers who can’t get a gig in the NRL plying for a move to the SL doesn’t strike me as anything other than over the hill has beens.

Take it with a pinch of salt as much as you desire but the signing of one of/both of these two would be ludicrous and shouldn't for one second be considered.

Fair play - many thanks for the info

With respect I don’t understand how you can have such a conclusive opinion when you don’t even know what position they are and admit you don’t watch much NRL. And it’s not that they can’t get a gig, just that Super League is an option.

Lockers is 35, just think about that...

There is no comparison whatsoever between Lockers and the Morris twins and to suggest so is utterly ludicrous. Lockers isn’t struggling for a game and could quite comfortably slot into an NRL side IMHO.

The Morris twins are a waste of time, money and cap space. You don’t need to watch much NRL to realise that.
