Sounds like we were just an employer, no special memories.....

Not even close Shiny pal.
You don’t think the Briers to Brisbane move is due to Wigan do you?
It’s got SJM written all over it…and even has Wire rent money of his home helping him along.
A lad who gives near 25 years to one club, will have friendships and respect that go way-way beyond a move to Wigan made it look.

This Brisbane move has been put in place to get Lee more feathers in his cap. Where better to learn how to be a coach than in Aus?
So many of those ex Aussie assistants that come to the SL, do so only to add the thing that is missing from their CV.

Lee will learn what the likes of Madge McGuire and recent Saints coaches have done as assistants…(that went pear shaped for Price).
They headed to SL so then can get return with a head coach gig in the NRL.

Lee will return from Aus ready to be a head coach…and you can bet, top of his list will be to coach Wire one day.
SJM will have in his mind to get Lee back at Warrington when his 100% ready.

SJM will make sure they’d be no tarnishing to a club legend as Lee, unlike at our WA noisy neighbours. :SHOOT: Sacking Cunningham was a huge own goal, how uncomfortable it must be to see a statue of a guy that give so much of his life to one club, to be embarrassingly dumped?

I'm an old fart who is old enough to have seen Brian Bevan play the game. As a boy I used to wait for the great man at the back of the main stand at Wilderspool every home game to ask him to sign my programme. He seemed to be a very shy man who gave me the impression he didn't really want to sign, but he did, in very small, neat handwriting BBevan. Over time he came to recognise me and I didn't have to ask. He was my hero truly an all time great.To look at him in his civvies, long gaberdine raincoat, his boots in a neat paper parcel under his arm you'd never guess he was a RL all time great His World try scoring record probably won't ever be broken. I fell in love with the game and was a season ticket holder for many years. BUT around five years ago I walked out of the HJ and haven't been back since. The game was overcoached, formulated and any flair and spontoneity was long gone. I could close my eyes for a couple of minutes open them again and I knew where the ball was within about 10 yards. I still follow the game via TV but rarely last more than 20 minutes. I've better things to do like picking the fluff from my deeply sunken navel

I always love reading your posts.
I love the nostalgia.
I’m saddened to know you don’t watch Wire anymore.

Your view is very similar view to radio presenter Wire, Alan Beswick.
He stopped watching Wire under Price too, highlighting something along the lines of the grace of the ball doing the work by players of craft as opposed to the robotic structures of modern RL. He no longer says he’s a Warrington fan like he used to on almost every show.

I hope the appointment of DP will rejuvenate your hunger to watch Wire once more under better circumstances in 2023, with his, and the clubs effort, to bring football back to the HJ again.

I am now officially an old fart, I have a mobility scooter.My legs are strong enough but due to a labyrinthectomy my balance has deteriorated. I can still take steps UP two at a time but coming down I become "frozen" if there is no handrail. Next season looks promising with a practically new team and if the coach can get them playing Castleford type football I may start watching again. I haven't made enquiries about letting me in with my scooter(it's a big one) but in these non-discriminatory days I hope there isn't a problem. Seeing as you enjoy my anecdotes here's another. In my working life I was a truck driver and was sent to Greenalls Brewery to pick up a pallet of beer. Having never been in there before I was at a loss as to where to go and I must have been looking puzzled. A large chap in a white coat jumped from the loading bay and asked me where I was going. He put his arm round my shoulder and showed me where to go.It was none other than the late Laurie Gilfedder. I told him I thought he was brilliant in his Wilderspool days, the highlight being at Wembley in the Cup Final vsHunslet when he scored a brilliant individual try bursting through from halfway to score in the corner. I even told him that I forgave him for signing for Wigan. I must have sounded to him like a 12 yearold girl talking to Gary Barlow

I know we have gone slightly 'off topic' a bit here but were you the Wolfie with the Chicken? Always made me smile and your reactions to the failed attempts were great ..... if it was you that is
