The fact the article links him with Saints makes me take this rumour with a pinch of salt. I just can’t see why they’d be in for him or how they could fit him under the cap, so I think they’ve just thrown a couple of random well known club names in the article and hoped for a few clicks.

If we were in for him and it was to come in for French, I could accept it but It would make far more sense to target a fullback or centre from down under.

Agreed. To make an example it all seems very Man Utd esq i.e no real plan, or long term vision. Good player X is available so sign him, regardless of what we already have in that position Vs what's actually needed.

Good teams don't operate like that imo.

You would have to find a club willing to take Bevan French, who might not be available to play due to his family circumstances. I would imagine he isn't going anyhwere for less than the contract he's currently sitting on, so Wigan would have to chip something in towards that. Then you would have to negotiate with is current club how much they would be willing to pay towards his deal. He is reportedly on $500k for next season.

You are correct - a piece of urine.

Sure I read once that it’s about a 6 or 7 hour drive from where French was brought up to Sydney. That’s clearly better than being over here but it’s not a quick twenty minutes up the road either.

Zak Hardaker and Scott Taylor would faint at the thought of that drive.

Sounds like Jai Field may start the season at full back from his interview today.

For me that is his natural position.
