spot on!!! Always rated him since he broke into the side seems to love playing for wigan has plenty of passion and seems just a happy easy going bloke who loves playing the game !!

Absolutely and it's good to see that passion in the Shirt. Hastings and Hardaker are two others who have genuine pride in the shirt which, as non Wigan natives, is a particular joy to see. I really enjoyed Jackson's playing to the crowd after the tries yesterday. He's starting to build up a real rapport with the supporters already.

As to Marshy; when he first came into the team it was clear he was a natural finisher but had several deficiencies in his game, notably in defence, under the high ball and, not having natural size, wasn't as effective as others bringing the ball out of our own half. He has systematically worked through each of these weak areas to the point where I'd say one of them (bringing the ball out of defence) is arguably one of the strongest parts of his game! That's genuine application. His defence is now solid and he no longer gets caught out of position either. The improvement in his all round game is exemplary. A class professional and a credit to the Jersey.

Spot on there, I was quite critical of Marshall at times up until last year but his overall game has improved ten fold and he’s always one of the hungriest players on the pitch to see the ball, with him and Dom on the wings we won’t go far wrong because both are cracking players who give 110% everytime they’re on the pitch

As for Hastings you can tell he’s a genuine class act, he shows so much passion every game and never stops talking and directing which is something we lacked massively last season. He reminds me very much of Sam Tomkins because of his pure will to win and his excellent leadership

Good call on the comparison to Sam Tomkins. You can't teach that will to win and it's something Hastings has in abundance.

Marshall was always the better winger imo than Davies after he scored 3/4 trys against us a much better winger Davies had to work harder to justify his place as didn't have that killer finishing ability Marshall has.

Although my judgment is based on what u see on sky

Marshall always scored a couple of tries against wire in his early days. But then again, he was helped by playing opposite Matty Russell!

Id still play Burgess in front of Dom at the moment until he regains some pace, he looked like he was running in treacle, if Clubb keeps his place then everyone should be safe from the chop

How good is this kid? Now our number one winger and puts us on the front foot. His kick and chase try was incredible.

Looks to be loving his rugby. I think he’s found a couple of lads in Hardaker and Hastings who are similar characters and his influence on the whole squad looks to be growing. I noticed him today giving lads a gee up and he looks really comfortable as a first choice winger.

Absolute quality.

He’s had a year of playing on the right wing. Naturally our “good ball” always goes down the left (Hastings/Williams Farrell etc). Done a lot of the donkey work on the right for a year never getting many opportunities.

Now on the left he’ll see himself shoot up the try scoring charts. Deserves it too.
RICHARDS IS SUPERMAN!!!!

The improvement year on year of Marshall has been outstanding. He’s far superior to Burgess and Manfredi and is quite easily the best winger at the club and right up there for the best in SL. That try today was exceptional and just shouldn’t have been scored under any circumstances. He’s a special player who we must be looking to secure on a better contract, on this form it’s only a matter of time before the NRL comes calling.
