From a hudds fan he ran decently but in my opinion was very poor in defence

I'd agree, not the finished article by any means, but lots of potential

Don't know about retirement but i think he needs to have a serious think about International Rugby . Not going to make the next World Cup so whats the point . The last thing he or Wigan need is for him to extend this domestic season with 4 International games .

I honestly thought Kibula really struggled. He did have one great run though.

He came out way too fast in defence and made some poor tackle attempts resulting in high tackles. That may well be over enthusiasm on debut.
A good comparison is Kibula and Matty English. Very similar in age, but it's clear that Matty English is way ahead of Kibula currently.
The main thing for Kibula will be game time. Once he gets up to super league fitness and speed I believehe could be devastating. But he's got lots of hard work ahead of him and needs to stay patient.

Let's be honest, seeing a huge guy taking a hit up is always a great sight.

Kibula is still only 18 years of age. Two years is a lot at this stage. I actually think that Liam Byrne and Ollie Partington will be challenging Kibula for that prop spot.

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

Wigan had eight in a row

I was only able to listen to the radio commentary in spells at work and heard Kibula only took 1 drive in 15 mins. That simply isn’t enough but I won’t judge an 18 year old prop on just his debut. He’s got the talent and years of development in him and I reckon he’ll be a cracker.
