He'd be about the best option for us, to get us through a "transitional" year until the young guns take over.

Don't think he's about to sign for Wigan at all!
My sauces tell me he's already signed!

Surprised at Wigan signing someone so late on in their career when their own youngsters are playing well. I suppose his experience will help the young 'uns though.

One of my favourite all time players. Looks like it may only be a one year contract, which would be ideal for all parties... Wigan get an experienced fullback for their up and coming youngsters Lewis Tierney and Ryan Hampshire to learn from, whilst Bowen gets one last paid day before retirement.

from what i have seen teirney doesn't look the best option, call me a cynic but if his dad wasn't jason robinson would he be there? my grandson has played against and outplayed ellery hanleys lad but i bet hanleys lad gets picked up......my grandson has by warrington.

Tierney is a very good player. Regular try scored in the 19's comp. He is only 18 and will need time.

From what little I've seen of Lewis tierney he looks a decent prospect and a good potential squad player who may bloom into a regular player for Wigan or another super league team. Comparing him to his dad is just ridiculous and unfair as Jason Robinson in my opinion of watching RL over 25 years is easily in the top 3 best British players I've ever seen alongside Martin offiah and ellery Hanley, these types of players only come around every 10 or 15 years.

Sarginson may play as Bowen's under study.
Hampshire is a 6. And an international within 3 years.

Sarginson needs a settled position, be it fullback, centre or stand off, all this moving him about is stalling his development and career just like lee Gaskell and johny lomax(before nailing the saints fullback position). As for Hampshire his talent and potential is there for all to see as was Tomkins when he broke into the first team.

My mate Tom K's a good sauce and he reckons that rumours that Bowen has already signed should be taken with a pinch of salt.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

I can see Hull making a move for him. We're used to playing ketchup.

Bowen is poor under the high ball. Opposition teams will pepper him with bombs.

The best we could have hoped for. We just need to get him the best possible medical support to get and keep him on the field.
