Too many injuries towards the back end for Fielden. On his day he was one of the best and most entertaining players to watch.

A shame he seemed to have lost the fire in his belly for much of his Wigan career - I think there were other things going on off the field for him at the time if I recall correctly.

If only Nobster had brought over Peacock with him

Was it an injury that ultimately retired him? I always thought we should have kept him for another few seasons. He did a job and did it well IMO


He had just recovered from an injury and then got a knee infection and called it a day IIRC.

Missed practically all of 2011 with various injuries only playing in the first game
Missed all of the 2012 season apart from 1 game at the end of 2012 due to injuries.

His contract had expired and he was 33 at that point.
Went to huddersfield and played no more than 10 games then retired.
Correct decision to let him go

Although 2007 was a bit of a damp squib for him I do think that he improved 2008/2009 & 2010 and he definitely deserved his end of season selection for GB 2010.
Whilst not hitting the heights of his Bradford career his 2006 performances and 2010 were very good IMO
And even though 2007/8/9 werent brilliant he still was very durable, steady and played 30plus games every year and his stats for carries/tackles/metres we could only dream of from some of our props of the last couple of years.

When we were under the cosh, under our own sticks he was always first to put his hand up and take a carry.
So for that I will always think of him highly.

I was elated when he got his international recall, it was so well deserved for me and I completely agree with your assessment. In all honesty I’d forgotten the circumstances of him leaving us. For me he still ranked up there as one of the best props we’ve had at Wigan. Wore his heart on his sleeve, stood up and did the tough stuff and never took a backwards step.

Stu Fielden in his Bradford pomp was as frightening as watching Shane Webke.

Best British prop of all of SL for me, based only on Bradford and first wigan season form.

Obviously his longevity not a patch on others such as peacock etc. At his best though, he was better imo
What's the rumpus, Tom?

The best super league prop in my mind was Jamie Peacock,even the Aussies were scared of him,i remember when he sorted Willie Mason out in the Great Britain test match.I was always surprised he never went to the NRL as he would have been as big a hit as Morley.Fielden was the last true 80 minute prop forward as they now seem to be programmed to do between 15-25 minutes,maybe George Burgess can do 60 minutes,here's hoping

He didn’t sort him out though did he. It’s a myth. After mason sorted fielden out with ease, peacock runs in and him and mason exchange a couple of punches until mason trips over another player
