What are peoples thoughts of bringing in an overseas hooker?

I.Luke, Segeyaro, R.Farah all off contract this year and feel they're falling into the 'not quite good enough for NRL but would do well in SL' category.

If that’s true then that is a disgrace a squad player at best it does kind of show how badly managed the cap is at Wigan,or at least seems to be at any rate,no club will pay him that,Lam won’t pick him so I assume he will just sit out this deal?


Lam didn't rate him from day one due to he didn't know where to play him and thought he was grossly overpaid at £100k.
Lam would play Marshall at FB before Escare

I have always thought Escare has done a good job for us when required. Lam freezing him out is going to make it more difficult for us to get rid imo. I just hope someone offers him a long term contract elsewhere and he takes it but he’s never in a million years going to get 6 figures a year again.

Whoever did the Diane Abbott tribute act coming up with those figures for Escare needs to have a word with themselves. How can you justify paying a squad player that kind of money?

I read online this week that Escare managed to snag a 6 figure contract. If that’s true then Rads needs a talking to. Even at his best he has never been and will never be a 6 figure contract player.


Was that on facebook? It must be true then :roll:

Escare, Tautai (renewal), Gildart (renewal), Budgie (first contract on returning from NRL) were all very poorly managed. The renewals/resignings were all done hastily and it was one of the reasons Shaun Wane was seriously unhappy! Told there was no room for strengthening the squad but then renewals signed that took up free cap space that could of been used elsewhere.

Shouldn't be a priority IMO, even if Leuluai calls it a day we still have Powell and Shorrocks with Borough coming through. I'd be prioritising another prop.

Lam really rates Brad O'Neill, it'll be interesting if he sees him as #9 or #13.
