Told weeks ago by a very close member of his family that he has signed a 3 year deal with Wigan. : :

Matty Smith by himself is, as described, kind of a Mr Average, but he does play a vital role in what is a pretty creative triangle of himself, Holdsworth and Pattern who create some very good rugby.
I think he'll go ok for Wigan. They're well drilled in the backs and he'll slot in ok, but they'll need to make sure whoever is coming in at #6 has the edge that a top club wants somewhere in their half backs.

I think they will retain Finch. He's not received any offers from the NRL despite advertising his availability and is now faced with retirement or Super League.

Can't see how Smith and Finch would play in the same side... I think it's likeliest that Finch would end up at Hull or similar.

Finch has already said he'll only play for Wigan in SL. So assuming he can't get a deal in the NRL and doesn't fancy retiring, I see no reason why Wigan won't welcome him back with open arms. The search for his replacement seems to have gone quiet after all.
Wigan vs Leeds finals aggregate score.

Wigan 178 - 64 Leeds

Wigan wins - 6 Leeds wins - 0

Finch's intention is to go back to Australia, Wigan offered him big money to stay and he rejected it flat out and gave them plenty of notice so they can plan for next year and as a result I can't see him deciding to join another SL club. Wigan are that keen to keep him that I'm sure they will have another go if he doesn't get fixed up soon but I can't imagine he is short of offers over there, he's a class act.

If Finch has said he'll only play for Wigan, he's a liar. I know for a fact that he's spoken to at least two other clubs over here but made it obv his first option was NRL. Wishful thinking on youre part, youre a long time retired he's no fool.

At the end of the day he is a professional Player and need to earn a living. I suspect if he cant get a gig in the NRL he will take the best offer and who could blame him.

I think he'd go well at Saints, but I'm not so sure he'd be a great partner for Smith at Wigan not that I care a great deal if they tried and it failed :

Wigan want smith now and are prepared to send a young lad to the reds on loan to compensate them.

If that's true (I haven't heard anything) then Tommy L's injury maybe worse than first thought.
