How much did Wigan pay for John Bateman?

Around £70K was the quoted figure.

Presumably he’s gone now because Wigan just don’t see the point in having him around. They’ll have to work out when he plays for Newcastle, when he plays for the reserves etc etc and sort the logistics of that. It saves that headache and makes it clear that if a player doesn’t want to be at the club, they know where the door is. There’s simply no point in Wigan spending the next few months developing him for another side.

Agreed,if a player finds a deal move him on why on earth keep hold of him doing his new club a favour?

The real figure was actually less than that due to him getting absolutely mullered by Curtis Scott in a fight. Scott got sacked but Bateman used it as leverage to come back home and Wigan for him for absolute peanuts

He has the same agent as Smithies (Craig Harrison). Guessing Harrison’s wants to have both the long term Wigan 13 and wire 13 on his books.

Correction he left Harrison and has signed up with Ayoub.

They have Hastings, Gildart, Hardaker and a host of top NRL players.

I’m don’t think they have any clients who exclusively have said in SL (I know Zak only did a short Loan spell) .

I’m guessing appointment Ayoub (ultra management) he has his sights set on the NRL.

The £70K was the fee Wigan paid to Bradford.

Any news on Gildart?

Never see much mention of him at Wests.
