Who's going to get the chop?

They've got Cronk, Widdop and Finch now, surely they can't afford, or accomodate them all, Widdop can't move to 1, maybe into the centres?

Finch back up, Widdop to start 6 and cover 1.

Wigan stand-off, Brett Finch has confirmed his destination for the 2013 season will be former club Melbourne.



The 31 year-old linked up with former assistaint, Michael Maguire in 2011 after the Storm found themselves over the salary cap, but always wanted to end his career in the NRL.

Strange signing, I'd have thought they would be using the cap space on forwards.

NRL expansion? Sometime soon, maybe......

Cronk who signed a four year deal, about six months ago. Can't see Widdop being let go, either.

I think Finch has been brought in for cover, nothing more.
Didn't William Webb Ellis pick up the ball and run, someone should really tell Rugby Union.

This is basically semi-retirement for Finch I think, I mean he seemed fine with not playing at all so being cover for injury/origin isn't much more. Presumably he will take over from Kostjasyn?

Widdop is Melbourne's future full back when Billy retires in 2-3 years.
Cronk will be a one club player
Finch is back up as stated, if Slater is injured or rested Widdop will go to fullback and Finch to 6. He may play some time at 9 or 13 as well.

Really? I stand corrected then, I didn't think Finch would move to a club where he wouldn't be the starting 7 is all.
