It's all going to plan , so far :-

 

All the information on the club ( Tickets - playing - merchandising ) is coming from the club in an even & timely manner. and not via an ill written gossip column in the local rag .

 

the club is even responding to fans feedback ( additional 10% discount for existing season pass holders, move to the east stand for the opening games )

signings sound like honest players prepared to put a shift in if required . .

 

the Head Coach is a local lad

the Associate sponsors are local

the shirt is not awful & the headline sponsor is recognisable  

 

the owner has ceded any input into rugby matters to the second most successful coach in Aus RL

and is moving to physical business of operating the club.

 

mine you it's still close season & no ones passes a ball yet so still time smash the china shop

unattached Players training with professional teams is not uncommon , it works well for player & club , The player gets into a pre-season training regime & works towards match fitness whilst also putting himself in the 'shop window ' with the training club . The clubs get  a free look at the player , see if he is worth a punt & also knows how he trains & fits into the squad without any contract issues , 

worst case scenario , He get fixed up with another club by his agent , and he's already partially match fit.

 

Best example I can remember was Jodie Broughton , Ashley Gibson , who had signed on at Salford for the 2010 season brought his ex Leeds academy Teammate Jodie to train at Salford. His Leeds deal had expired & his loan Club Hull hadn't taken him on , he impressed and bagged a two year deal

Rumoured to be Wigan Warriors U19 strip.

Never heard of an Academy team having its own strip.?
I would guess there'll be a lot of nervous Wigan fans out there now.
