Inevitable that some of Wiganís rising RL stars of the future would have to make way for the Melbourne connection.

Shame that Wigan could not hang on to him if he was as good as what they made out. Wigan seem to be able to churn out plenty of good forwards but backline talent is limited.

Always a loss to the sport, sad to see kids leaving, there is no chance of the talent filtering down through the Super League ranks when better money is on offer elsewhere. If the rumours are to be believed he was offered very very good money to go to Sale.

Good luck to the lad, just like any other business when you invest money in an apprentice there is always a danger he may move on for more money if its available.

Charnley and Marsh have left him far behind, after he looked lad most likely a couple fo years ago.
When we look across at the local back line talent produced by the Wire, we can only marvel at him.

That would be a loss.
He is too punchy for the rah rahs though.

It was only a finishing line in an article about Thornley, so hopefully nothing in it.

Charnley and Marsh will make outstanding Rugby League players in time. Iain Thornley i am told has not progressed as much as Wigan had hoped he would.

What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss
It's only two humans being.

Eh?

If the lad decides to go to another sport for more dosh, what's that got to do with the Melbourne signing?

I may have missed something here. If so, sorry about that. I read that our under 20s lost to what sounded like an unusual try. Is the try scorer playing this week end for the Wire first team?

EW you quote:- Charnley and Marsh have left him far behind, after he looked lad most likely a couple fo years ago.

.

So i thought i'd remind you, a back liner scored for the wires.

Evans is a future "Superstar" you may laugh / comment or what ever, but this lad is the future..... Wires haven't been this excited about a player since scully or harris...... and this time WE dont have to sell.

I have seen him play a few times and he is looking a class act, if he was at Wigan he'd have played first grade already................ Wires are not very good at getting the kids in, seems reluctant to do so (can understand it at the moment with all to play, plus lack of injuries this season hasn't created a chance) but i would give a chance against wakey or hull (at home)


EW, i no you think i talk 5h1te sometimes, but book mark this page, sometime soon you'll remember this.
