These things are usually about money aren't they?
Sam Tomkins is a very exceptional player but spending around a sixth (is that right?
) of your salary cap on one player is clearly going to make the rest of the squad a tad restless.
Obviously, Hock is a gifted player also and, as a senior? England international, probably would be one of the first to produce mutterings of discontent.
I suppose all Lenigan had to point out was Hock's disciplinary record and the hackles would be raised.
I hope that is how it went and we don't find unsavoury stuff coming to the surface somewhere down the line.
I just find it unusual that Wigan haven't looked to get rid completely as there are one or two people involved in certain SL clubs with a few bob that would have been only too happy to offload players to make way for Hock, paying a substantial fee as well, IMO.
