Only downside seems he's another lefty, if he can play right centre that would be a big plus for us.

Doesnt really look any better than Sarginson or Hankinson from what ive seen. Just being honest. Maybe im right, maybe im wrong, time will tell.

He played well in the play offs and GF but I’d still prefer Sarginson personally.

I’ve been hugely impressed with him at the back end of this season. He looks a natural centre and it’s good for us that he already has that link with Hastings on the left hand side. I thought Gildart did equally as well over on the right side at the back end of last year as he’s done on the left this year, so at least we have that comfort that he can play there if needs be.

Without a shadow of a doubt. Sarginson is massive loss for us next season imo.

I’d like to see Hardaker and Gildart in the centres and Bibby as backup with French at fullback but doubt it’ll happen

Really don’t see the point in the Bibby signing what so ever. Gildart should not move from the left for me, looked a different player on the right side (same as Farrell) so Bibby is either going to be a back up for Gildart or play on the right centre which is a step backwards from sarge.

Also very much agree that losing Sarginson is a bigger loss than some people think as he ran his blood to water every week and did so much donkey work.

I have to say when we first signed him my initial thought was, “Who?”.

I’ve taken a much closer interest in him since then and gone out of my way to watch him whenever I can and I have to say I’m excited to see him in a Wigan shirt.

He is a very intelligent player. He runs some of the best lines I’ve seen as a centre and as has been mentioned above he seems to have an at times telepathic relationship with Hastings.

Whilst Sarg is all work and effort I think this lad is all class, I see a little bit of Gleeson in him. Very intelligent player and I think he will be a cracking asset if he is given a bit of time to establish himself at the club.
