RIP, one of my favourite ever Wigan players.

Hard as nails total machine.

Craig Smith was in indifferent form till Q turned up, but his arrival transformed Smith too.

When they were on the field at the same time the intensity in the middle was as high as I’ve ever seen it.

Didn’t know he was ill. Very sad news.
Unofficially the most boring poster on Cherry and White.

If you don't bother to go to the game when you live in the locality then you are not really a fan and therefore your views are invalid. It's simple.

RIP Q.

Q still remains one of my enduring memories of rugby league in the early 2000's, thanks to "that" chip kick to Carney in the corner.

I was stood in the shed at Saints and when we saw him shape to kick, I think the entire stand held its breath.

I remember shouting "what the f*** are you d............ YEEEEEEEEEESSSSSS".

Fantastic player. Sorry to see him leave Wigan, and even more sorry to see this news.
