Re: Jack Welsby : Tue Jul 05, 2022 7:40 am  
I think Welsby is a terrific player, as a Wigan fan I completely understand why Saints fans are so excited about him and I look forward to seeing him tear it up in an England shirt so that I can cheer for him. As for Sky, like all of us, I think they are painfully aware that our sport no longer has household names outside its core audience. That's why they did the hype job on Tomkins, now Welsby and why they will do the same with Will Pryce if circumstances allow. Doesn't alter the fact that Tomkins was an outstanding talent and so is Welsby (not getting into a measuring contest of who is best). Like most fans, I see much more of my own team than I do others and that probably colours my judgement a little, and the same is probably true of Jon Wilkin.

Agree completely.

Although if we were to get into a measuring contest, Sam was better!

Did I say he was a poop player?
He is a good player but he isn't the messiah like a lot of fans claim he is
