New 3 year deal and no mention of NRL release clause. I’m delighted with this one as he would have been extremely difficult to replace.

Pleased with this.
Olly’s goal should be to gain and secure an international spot. Wigan is the right place to achieve that. Here he’s settled, knows the team, the club, he coach and can focus on his game soley.
Moving to another SL club would mean having to find his feet all over and have to deal with the process of being somewhere new.

If his end goal is the NRL; which I feel it is, then going over now could be counterproductive. As an international he can command more money, have more respect and reputation to take with him.

Going over now could stunt his career if he’s not given game time; which would be a strong possibility at this stage in his career.

Goal had to be; be outstanding. Become an international centre and then discuss a NRL move. Three years is a perfect amount of time to achieve his intermediate goals.

Abd for us? We secure a quality young centre whose goal is to be outstanding. The reassess in 3 yrs.

Good news, shortage of centres available and he’s one of super leagues best and will only get better. Can’t believe he’s still 21.

If he has 3 great years at Wigan then wants to try his hand in Aus, he’ll go with my blessing.

Very good news as centres are getting harder to find these days - at least good ones and in Gildart's case he is young enough to have plenty of time to develop further.

If you don't bother to go to the game when you live in the locality then you are not really a fan and therefore your views are invalid. It's simple.

I think that he has made the right choice. He should be applauded for wanting to try himself at a higher level but he still needs to prove himself. If he gives us two blockbuster years and earns a big paycheque in Aus I would happily wave him off at the airport with best wishes.

Great news. Think we'd better brace ourselves for Bateman leaving though

It’s top news because as pointed out, not only is he a very good player but he’s one who would’ve been a nightmare to replace for anything under very good money. As much as I’d love to see Sutton and Bateman stay, they’re both easier to replace. In Batemans case in particular it’s still a tough ask to get somebody anywhere near as good but when you think we’ve already got Farrell, Lockers, Joel Tomkins and Isa, we may just decide to look to spend the money in other areas.
