Im going to print this and frame it


You can add it to the one alongside my comment when we replaced Noble :D

While you are at it, you might like frame this:

I have always wanted Edwards to coach Wigan but never thought it would happen as with him being involved with RU, Wigan would never have the cash available to tempt him away. So the fact IL has secured his services is a credit to IL. I have no idea how much he is being paid, if he's come taking a pay cut out of the simple desire to do it or whatever. It does not matter, IL has got his man. Well done IL.

(PS, normal service will be resumed tomorrow)

Impressive that IL has managed to capture Edwards. Surely he could have commanded a lot more money in RU. Maybe he genuinely wants the challenge!

Does anyone know if the press conference will be broadcast on Wigan TV or radio?

Edwards now has the opportunity to be the first person in history to win the league/major trophy in both League and Union as a head coach. Major opportunity for our Shaun to make history again.

It's a major major incentive and one which I reckon would eclipse any salary. That incentive will surely transfer down to the players as well, the chance to work with not just Lam but also Shaun Edwards would be a major draw.

I hope J & S Tomkins are looking back with regret.

Very interesting press conference. Edwards was brilliant. "And how much do you earn luv" was his reply when asked if he was taking a wage cut to come back to Rugby League.
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

Worth watching just for that. Both showed that they are ‘up for this’.
