It's been reported on sky sports that Wigan may be getting £ 700,000 for Sam.

 

"Although the amount has not been confirmed, it is reportedly in the region of £700,000."

Best of luck to him. I don't see any reason why he can't be a big success over there.

Good luck to him.....i watch far more NRL than super league anyway so the more british stars we have over there the better.  Hope he can help the Warriors be a little more consistent next season.

 

Also with the fee and Bowan coming the other way it's a pretty decent result for wigan too.

Back to the Topic in question. This is a done deal, and will come early with huge transfer fee to allow the move to go through in 2014.

 

 

As confirmed in April!

Great bit of business for Wigan IMO although a huge gap to fill as no otehr player like him at the moment

Good luck Sam, a great talent and hopefully he'll rip up the NRL.

 

£700k transfer fee? A pity Wigan aren't able to go for a marquee player in return.


errr.........is it scaramanga?

Good luck to him - a truly great player who will do well in the NRL without a doubt. I wonder what this means for Locke, the current NZ Warriors fullback who I understand was well regarded, is he moving on?

It seems loads of people have thought the same. I think its just that they dont know the exact fee but they know it exceeds the £450k paid for Fielden

I like the idea of Ben Barba at the Brisbane Broncos. More players should choose alliterative clubs.

I think he's from Queensland and wants to be nearer to his family because of well documented off field problems.

Why can't they? I assume Tomkins is one of the highest paid players in SL.

is this the first time an Aussie club has actually paid a fee for an English player? Usually its end of contract departures.. none spring to mind anyway..

Parra agreed a fee with Wigan for Hock, which presumably Salford ended up paying?

We've loads of spare cash. We should buy South Wales Scorpions with it.

Great news that he is moving to NZ and nowhere else. Looking forward to cheering him on at the World Cup.

The NZ warriors are going to have an awesome threequater line next season with Tomkins, vatuvei, hurrell, Nielsen(not so much) and Fisiiahi, not to mention scrum half Shaun Johnson.
