Has he done enough to earn a new contract yet? The reports from Swinton are excellent but in the Bradford game, which is on youtube, he still looked sluggish in defence.

Been Swinton MOM in last two matches. Looking at the two RL papers he was playing second row yesterday.

Think dropping down to championship level will do wonders for his game and getting knocked about a bit by big blokes will bring out the aggression he so rarely displays. He was coasting at U19s level, relying on his size rather than his undoubted skills.

That link hardly shows anything, about 6mins. An easy try, a tackle after a penalty made and late cover defense with Bradford scoring.

I really hope he stays at Wigan for at least another season. It would be a real shame to lose a player like him just as the reserves is coming back in place, because it’s ideal for that type of player. He looks to be going along quite nicely at the minute.

In today's League Express they name Kibula as Swinton's MOM for the Barrow game.
Surely that's got to say something about his current form?

it says league express's reporter thought he had a good gamin the grand scheme of things meaningless thought doubt he will leave the club this season if I'm honest, these loans seem to be doing some good, but he was a long way from the finished article when I was watching him in the 19's.

It would be wrong to let him go at this stage. With the reserves next year that is the ideal step up.
Loan/dr is one thing but the reserves is really what's been needed for years. Give him a shot in the reserves and also see how he goes in the first team before we start releasing him or any other young player from now on.

What appeared to be was the odd thing that he's not been considered for the first team.
Havard went from U19s to the 1st team for the Wakey game which was his debut.
So why wasn't Kibula considered? Is it because Lam and the coaching staff watch the U19s at Robin Pk are impressed with Havard and select him. However, Kibula should be further up the pecking order but he's on loan at Swinton. So who from the coaching team is watching Swinton? Anyone, no one? Do they just rely on the Swinton coach reporting back to them? Kibula has won MOM in his last three games for Swinton which suggests he's in the best form of his career given the level he's playing at.He isn't on the radar for 1st team. Seems odd to me.
