Beware Super League clubs. A quality player no question but the article shows the injury problems he's had throughout his career.
A 3 year deal then he only plays 40 games would be a nightmare for any club.
Super League clubs have, I suspect, realised that they are Rugby Clubs not Australian Offshore Pension Providers.

Not sure if this has been mentioned, but Nobby appears to be chasing Carmont...

2012. As good a player he is, it'll be too late if Thornley maintains his progress.


Do you think he is ready for the odd game in the first team next season?

I would love to see him play in the challenge cup.
Dropkick Murphy..we actually saw and heard a mass of bouncing and scarf and flag waving to Dale Cavese that drowned out anything we could muster.. It stopped us singing our own celebratory songs, it died out seconds later when we accepted we couldn't be heard over the Wigan lot
Celebrations muted from us, job done from them. Most fans who slag them off are jealous their own club's support is nowhere near that good
-
sally cinnamon..Why not discuss Wigan? It's a rugby league message board. Wigan are the most famous brand in rugby league
-
Tre Cool..Saints fans are hopeless unless it's a cup final or grand final. Wigan fans are so much more loyal and passionate
-
the flying biscuit..Wires havent been massively succesful over the years, but I've spoke to Brian Bevan And he spoke to me and i wouldnt swap that for Wigans History, ever
-
Ande..on the TV i could only hear the Wigan fans with about 10 to go
-
Saint94..Every team is in your feckin shadow, we all know

I like Thornley but have been more impressed with Marsh and Charnley this year.
SAINTS THE ORIGINAL AND PERENNIAL CHEATS

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy
For 75 - 0 you get sod all.

Wigan had eight in a row
Saints have five in a row

I agree.

Stefan Marsh has always stood out for me. I think Thornley is a good player, but has been slightly over-hyped IMO, which is obviously no fault of his.

Has Carmont been announced as signing a new deal, because the rumours from where I live are that Saints have offered more than Wigan and he has asked for a week to think it over.

Hope this is not true

I'd be very surprised if Saints offered Carmont a deal. They already have seven players over the age of 30 in their probable starting 17 next year.

From what I have heard Wigan have offered Carmont a one year deal, but he wants two which Celtic may offer.

Good luck to George if he goes he has done a great job for Wigan in his time here.

Heartily second that, whatever George decides good luck to the guy he's been great for us, but I feel a 1 year deal is the best we can offer him.
