Yes according to the team sheet posted on twitter. Has he played 3 games ?


Only 2 i think, wonder if he was gonna play a 3rd bit pulled out due to injury, there's something in a the rules about that counting aint there? Assuming appropriate medical evidence is provided. But after whats happened the last 2 seasons anyone can do what they want cant they?

Not sure how James wage would count on the salary cap as he's part of the coaching set up at Wigan.

We might not be stupid but hopefully the person at RFL who we probably checked with isn't either.   Donny checked with someone at RFL and the info they gave was wrong!!!!


I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

16-6 another leigh try, this was after ball steal then spilled leigh kick though.  

 

While the previous try was on back of a penalty. Just keep it simple in the

second half, cut out errors and penalties.

16-6 at Half time, need to score first in second half if we are going to get anything from this game. Doesn't sound like we've been outclassed, just individual errors in our own 20 have cost us.

Workington Town. Then. Now. Always.
