Really good listen, especially the last 10 mins as JB talks about what he wants to achieve now he's back...

Just listening to it now actually - very interesting so far.

Loved the bit about him ringing George Williams and the fella who he put him on to not being able to understand a word George had said, for 10 mins :lol:

Great listen, I liked the bit when the interviewer was trying to urge John to say it training was a lot harder and stricter when he got to Australia.

He could have just gone along with it but made a point of saying how professional and “up there” Wigan is compared to the NRL.

Also glad he’s no interest of going back, just wants to captain Wigan and win 5 GFs
RICHARDS IS SUPERMAN!!!!

The last few minutes in particular were of real interest. We certainly don’t need to fear him going back there for at least 4 or 5 years by the sounds of things. He wants to get his GF winning tally up to 5, so 3 more to go and he wants to captain the club. I wonder if that is a nod to him taking over next year? Or possibly the year after once Tommy retires. He wants to be known as the best player in superleague and to go down as a Wigan legend. It was all very refreshing and honest stuff. Great to hear a player sound like winning things in this country matter to them as much as in the NRL. None of this ‘the NRL is my dream’ guff, just an honest admission that Superleague titles were always the dream as a kid.

Friday night is still sore but we’re on the right track and it won’t be long before we’re back in the major trophies.

I thought the indications were very positive from our point of view. It sounded more a case of never say never but an unlikely option for at least the next 4 or 5 years.

I’d be happy for Rads to make a deal with him that if he wins those 3 he wants in the next 3 seasons, he can go back with our blessing :D

Really looking forward to listening to this. Bateman could well be our next captain but there’s several other worthy contenders too. It’s a testament to him as a person his dedication to his club and family
