Inglis may go to Brisbane. Cam Smith, Cooper Cronk and Billy Slater will stay in Melbourne for sure.

But Wigan have snared Jeff Lima, Ryan Hoffman, and Brett Finch.

I would now appear that Wigan have their 2011 Grand Final appearance chalked in, with a victory almost certain.

Jeff Lima had a shocker today against the Warriors, that's all I've seen of him.

`Ryan Tandy ($150,000) `

Amazing Salary for a Championship plodder with Whitehaven.

NZ Warriors are now on a rampage. Don't judge Jeff Lima on one away game against the likes of NZ Warriors.

What don't judge him against a good performance that requires him to step up?

Wow, Wigan really will be lucky to have him when it comes to crunch time won't they!

Not been that good all season

I think they've got better than them 3 already, waste of money for me.




A lot of Yorkshiremen believe that when God created the world, he made it with perfect balance.
He balanced the hot areas with the cold areas. the dry areas with the wet areas.
And, in creating Yorkshire, he created the most glorious place on earth - full of majestic beauty and sporting giants.........and for balance he created....... Lancashire.

Thought he had a shocker today, well didn't most of the Storm players in the Cake Tin rain.

Five on the bounce for the Warriors, up to twenty points and looking good for the play-offs if they keep up this form.

I must say that the Penrith v Parramatta game was ######ing awesome from the early 22-0 lead to the 30 point fightback.

This is why Rugby League is the greatest game.

I couldnt be bothered with the link but if you've "snared" these 3 then you really need to have a good luck at your scouting operation biggrin.gif

Individuals are neither here nor there, a lot of people forget its a team game. You put together a team not 13 players. biggrin.gif

And on that point it certainly helps that Wigan have signed three players from the same top flight team.

Don't need any of them.

I would be delighted if none of those named are at Wigan next year.

Jesus Christ. Good luck to Wigan and all that, but I wish this ##### would bore off.

He is the worst poster on this board by a country mile, yet thinks that his opinion actually counts, the tool.

Edit: And I also expect he is from closer to Warrington than France.

Thats a silly statement, Lima is a journeyman who struggled in the French League, got himself fit and had two good years at the Storm in 2007-08. Several average players look great at the Storm due to the structure down there and it helps a bit playing alongside three players who will go down as legends of the game.

I think he will have a similiar impact on SL as former Storm teammate Dallas Johnson is having.

Hoffman on the other hand is a damaging runner wide of the rucks, i hope he overcomes his recent injuries.

Got to agree about Lima, Adam Blair is the main prize in the Storm pack but it looks like he is staying put. Hoffman, through injury, does not seem to be the player he was 18 months ago but would be a good signing for any club especially if he can get fit.

What complete tosh. How many times have we heard this. A good team sign a few players and thats it all before them will be swept aside.

Good job we actually play the games to find out how good teams are.
