Apparently if Gareth Widdop goes back to Australia (which i don't think he will) we'll make a play for Benji Marshall.
Marshall would be a good buy for 1 year but at 35 wouldn't be a long term option at all.
As i said i don't think widdops going anywhere unless anybody has heard otherwise?

Marshall has been good entertainment value this year for Wests. If buts and maybes I suppose, but would be great to watch in the P&B for a year.

Would him and Austin not just get in each other’s way? I’d prefer a “steady away” organising half back with a decent kicking game rather so that Austin can focus on more on what he does best - attacking the line.

I thought Widdop said it was rubbish about that rumour. On Sky? Said he’s happy here.

He'll say whatever they tell him to say. He's not going to come out and say "Yeah, we hate it here, we want to go back" and face abuse whenever he nips to the Spar.

I suspect the announcement of Widdop leaving will be linked to the announcement of his replacement. The rumours in Aus have you making a firm offer to Benji Marshall. Why would you do that if you weren't losing one of your halves?

It's Warrington, if a mid 30s NRL player on a big salary is available we'll be in for him, we can always move other players out of position if needs be. Widdop could play fullback.

You should prepare your lines to take to wind people on here up for if we sign him now.

I would suggest something like:
"Certainly an interesting signing and will bring great publicity for the game, but he's been a declining force in the NRL for some time now and wouldn't have found another club in the NRL so I don't blame him for seeking a big pay day at Warrington. Really interesting how Warrington have fit him under the salary cap, will we see his wife working at the club shop?"

You don't get how agents in Australia work, do you?

Simply, they use Wire as leverage to get their players a new contract - we are the biggest spending UK side and so they immediately use our name to whip up a rumour. No doubt we are always the first SL side that gets offered these bigger name NRL players for the big, final payday too.

If we had signed every NRL player linked to us during the last decade, we would never had to play a single UK born player.

And you'll rise high today,

From what I've heard Widdop is definitley off next season. Benji is one of my favourite players of all time but I'd sooner go out and splash the cash for Trueman at Cas than have Benji for one year.

Didn't we sign Daryl Clark and then leave him at Cas for a year before he came?

Could do the same with Trueman?

I agree we’ve already got Inglis on a short term deal. Would rather have a long term partner for Austin who can step up when he moves on.
