I see Tom Johnstone is injured again, real shame for him. Have to wonder where he will end up next season.


I think there may be more to this than meets the eye.

Just a feeling.

I wouldn’t be shocked to see him move before the end of the year with a fee involved and he is currently being protected to ensure he doesn’t pick up an injury during the negotiation period.

I’ve absolutely nothing to base this on I may add it’s just a hunch.
Unofficially the most boring poster on Cherry and White.

Quite possible. You wonder how that sits with the buying club tho?

Like buying a car and the guy selling it says that he's not drove in in weeks as it breaks a lot and he didn't wanna scupper a sale.

Johnstone is a massive red flag imo and I wouldn't want him anywhere near Wigan.

Just read that Wayne Bennett has given up on the chase for KPP because he understands that the Knights have won his signature. Anyone else heard this?

I very much get the sense that English lads go to the NRL "to any club that'll have them". Even if it's basket-cases like the Bulldogs or the Newcastle Knights. Or Wests (see Gildart).


Hopefully they will do some research and learn from the mistakes made by the likes of Lee Mossop, Sam Tomkins and George Williams….and there are many others.

Regardless of how successful some NRL clubs may be the change of culture can be a bit of a shock for different reasons not to mention the lifestyle differences.

I just kinda assume that all professional rugby league players (and coaches) watch all the NRL games. Not unreasonable, surely?

Ever time Wayne Bennett opens his mouth, I like him a little less!

Signed for Catalans.

Possibly means Yaha on his way out which is interesting as he is only 25 and just became Catalans all time top try scorer didn't he?

Wakefield forum saying you are in for Lino. The rare times I’ve seen him he’s looked really good!
