Edwards over Lam for me. I don't know if Lam has changed since his time at Wigan as a player, but he was VERY much jack the lad. I know of lots of stories involving Lammy, he very much embraced the fun side of being a RL name in a small town. Was a bit of a wild man.


Still a great player mind, wish we had him now.

For sure. Actually, a younger Lam would be perfect for our current team.

I think SE can finally be counted out, I recently spoke to a close member of his family, he had a meeting with IFL around the time of the Wire cup tie, he told IFL that he would have to dig a lot deeper into his pockets to make it happen, and also go Down Under to pay big money for a top Aussie half back to allow Williams more freedom. So I think that ends that little scenario unless Wigan can find a good few quid from somewhere. :(

Who's the family member? Could this not be more BS?

Transfer fee from Bateman move to Canberra would help!
'Do you remember when we had that meeting in Orlando? We talked about how we were knocked out the previous year by Leeds. And at the end, I asked you one question. "Do you want to be a semi-final team? Or do you want to do something special?" You all said you wanted to win. But talking is easy – it needed you to believe. It needed you to work hard – harder than you had – and make sacrifices. You did all that. you worked for each other. You stuck together when it was tough. And because of your efforts, you sit here tonight as champions. I'm proud of you. Be proud of yourselves. You've done something special.'

He’s taken up the clause in his contract enabling him to leave for nothing to an NRL club in 2019. He will not be a Wigan player next season.

The clause to leave in 2019 is for a predetermined transfer fee which has been the sticking point as Canberra don’t want to pay it. If Bateman plays 2019 for Wigan I have absolutely no doubt as to his 100% commitment and he’ll leave for free in 2020 with my best wishes and utter disappointment.
