Looks like we will be seeing the young lads fighting for a centre spot or are they all left sided as well?

I cannot believe all the negativity on this forum about the return of Sarginson. If he is such a bad player how did he get in the England team?


If you saw him play for Wigan often enough you would surely be asking how on earth he got either. There seems some sort of collective amnesia affecting Wigan fans regarding Sarge because you are not the first one to ask what is the problem given he managed to do these things. I can only conclude those who quote these two things and so assume he must be good have never, ever seen him play for Wigan.

i really don't get the negativity about this signing; sure enough he isn't one of the monster players who lit the WC up recently and he isn't a world class Aussie. but with the uncertainty around Gells and the fact that last year we got showed up with injuries in the back line I think this is a wise decision.
his utility value alone is worth the squad space, assuming he isn't on a crazy amount of money which I doubt he is to be fair - perhaps he is on a two year deal with a view to increase on good performance etc.
no matter his preferred position he WILL play where we need him and if he is temporary or permanent cover for Gells (if that does come about) then at least we still have our wingers on the wing and our centres in the centre unlike last year.
chin up guys.

I wouldnt worry what position he plays, we all know he will be doing the work of 4 props every game. FPN should donate 90% of his salary to Dan before the season even starts.

Can’t fault that side of his game,if he can cut the drops out of his game he would be a decent player imo. He’s still relatively young so should/could improve.
The main issue with him imo is that he is a returning player and we’ve been burnt numerous times over the last few seasons and the fans are crying out for new faces.

It’s not just the fans who want new faces, the squad needs them imo. I have nothing in principle about signing players who have left providing they are why the squad needs at the time however I do think that a new face in the team can freshen things up and give everyone a lift.
