Powell is deceptivly tough as teak and is (IMO) a classy operator from 9

Danny houghton gets all the pludits for having a very similar game / style to Powell, yet Powell just gets detractors from a lot of Wigan fans.

im a left scratching my head.
What's the rumpus, Tom?

Agreed. His kicking game is ten times that of Tommy's.

Smith surely will start against Salford. TL's kicking was dreadful today and after he was taken off Smith showed us all what a proper kicking game looks like.
The whole of the backs play better when Smith is at 7 with Hastings at 6.

Harry Smith has to start at 7 for the foreseeable future, his kicking game passing game and leadership/direction is miles better than Tommy. Tommy would be a decent option for backup hooker but at 7 he’s dreadful, his kicking game is the worst I’ve ever seen from a halfback

What I’d love to know is who is saying Tommy can be our main kicker at the end of sets? When he’s on he’s probably doing 80% of the kicking. Is it him demanding it? Lam asking that he does the job? Or just by default because nobody else wants it?

It’s been absolutely dire so far this season but I’d love to know how he’s getting the job before criticising Leuluai himself.

The lad looks like he could potentially be an immense talent, and I'm all for giving him more game time and the odd 80 minutes.

I'd want to see him play and shine (in attack and defence) in some high-stakes games before entertaining the idea of having him as our starting 7 in front of Tommy. TL has played in (and won) more semi-finals and finals than Smith has had hot dinners, and despite his limitations is still supremely fit.

If we end up in a final later this year against Saints, I'd be much more comfortable with Tommy playing from the start.
