As has been mentioned, maybe Danson is to buy Wigan RL, Latics and the stadium. He shouldn't stir up the animosity from 'tics fans that IL did when he first mooted bidding for the soccer club.

If it's true that Mike Danson is worth £1.1bn then that's a staggering amount of money.


Great idea.

If I was Danson and I owned both clubs, then not only would I be looking to keep IL around for this RL knowledge, I'd be wanting his footy knowledge too. We tend to forget he's got a pedigree in football that's up there with his one in rugby.

My main concern is that the article says Danson is a football fan and his interest in Wigan RL shares may be linked to strengthening his bid for the Latics.

Agree 100% that if the rumours are true then hopefully IL remains at the club in an influential role.
If he doesn’t want this then he leaves with my best wishes and thanks. I dread to think where we would be if hadn’t bought the club.

I didn’t think that Danson was the front runner to buy the Latics but I suppose in these strange days anything is possible

This is massive for me. Just a quick look at Warrington shows that massive financial resources don’t mean success.

The core of the team being young local talent is what sets Wigan, Saints and Leeds apart.

IL and Wane made it happen.
RICHARDS IS SUPERMAN!!!!

Would be nice as the article suggests if IL stayed on as director. He has done nothing but improve the club and would be sad to see him move on entirely.

Danson IS NOT interested in buying Latics apparently. His takeover could well be the catalyst behind this ‘major’ prop signing.

Always felt really lucky that we've had IL as an owner. Hope he stays involved in some capacity if this is true.

Agreed. This ethos must be allowed to continue, I'm sure it will. We still have Rads (assuming he's staying) and he bleeds Wigan RL and everything it's been built on.
