Surprised Bibby got #2, thought he would get #4. Field all the way down to #23 is pretty telling.

Hard to know how much to read into them to be honest. I've heard it said before that they're more a reflection of what happened last season than what's planned for the following season.

Very little to read in to them really. I’m not sure if it means Bibby will start as a right winger, maybe but I think they’ll see how pre season goes.

I don’t think Field was ever going to get a first 13 squad number after not playing last year and Harry Smith playing in most games. It seems only right that Smith is above him but Cust has clearly been brought in to play 6.

I think its a good squad on paper. Hopefully we can hit the ground running and pick up some early wins to boost the fans confidence in the new coaching set up.

Interesting what the numbers tell you about the assessment of Miski....that hes not really good enough to be the starting winger (as we expected would be the case), given Bibby's got the number 2!

Bibby has progressed significantly since joining wigan, and become a good established player, but he's never a winger in the memory of man....far too slow and his best position is easily centre. You could see that in the 2020 grand final when we missed two chances a quick wingman would have took.

Would have much rather seen Bibby at 4 with thornley as back up, which is what I was really expecting.

My concern, when you look at the team on paper is it still, despite the new signings, looks like a very average and weak wigan team. The starting 1-13 line up is what you would expect to see a team like wakefield or Huddersfield put out. Some good players here and there but generally pretty average and weak.

Let's just hope they gel and the sum becomes bigger than the parts.....if there was one thing wane could do it was that, so lets hope he helps us there.

Squad numbers now mean nothing.

Hastings was number 31 for both Salford and Wigan while Sam Tomkins has been 29 with Catalan.

Perhaps, a reason why the Aussies have abandoned the idea!.

The only reason they do it is commercial. Some fans, especially the younger ones like to have a players name name AND number on their shirt. It's a copy from football really, but as you say squad numbers don't mean anything as far as team selection goes.

It looks like a well balanced group but obviously a few unknowns within the team.

If Mago & Ellis go well then we could be in for a very good year and certainly a significant improvement on what we saw last season.

One area I would of liked to see us strengthen would have been the inclusion of a top goal kicker but I’m hopeful that Briers may be able to improve us.

Like others have said I don’t think it’s worth analysing squad numbers, I’m confident that Peet will just choose the players he thinks are able to win the game.

Quietly confident of significant progress.
