I'm counting overall contribution to Wire.

If its "who is the best RL player who played at some point for Wire" then Johns.

If its "who played at the highest level in a Wire jersey" then Davies.


Bobby Fulton was head and shoulders above Andrew Johns and Jonathon Davies, as good as they were. The closest in style I have seen to Fulton was Chris Sandow, but Fulton carried that standard throughout his career.

He was a Stockton Heath lad as well.

Yeah I think the caveat of Sally was "in their lifetime". Fulton is a great shout with 16 games for the wire in 1969/70.

Fair to say he's reinvented himself .
He last pulled a Wire jersey on, nearly a decade ago.
We move him to a coaching capacity, and he goes through the motions, for the best part of that decade.
He moves on, and helps transform Wigan from dull as ####, to easy on the eye. And now he's headhunted to Australia.

Maybe our last two coaches held him back?


Maybe our toxic atmosphere and the bad apples held him back?

Or he learnt so much here that just a year top up at Wigan has now seen him get an NRL gig...

A lot of conjecture on here. I’m not sure a year at Wigan has changed his reputation massively, although would have benefited by getting a sample of a new environment.

I do believe this move was meant to happen in 2020 though, but Covid put it on hold.

There will be only a handful of posters still alive who saw Brian Bevan in his pomp.

My late father was a big fan of "Bev" and would always be recalling games that Bevan played in with stories to me, when I was a kid.

Same - my late father and grandfather told me stories. They never mentioned his kick return stats, high bomb % or if he could get a quick play the ball. They did mention how elusive, exciting, and prolific he was though.
