Here's what I reckon...
2) Catalans have gone down a different route from us - with Dureau, Henderson and the sublime Carney they have wonderful players capable of shaping any game and playing any conditions. If I was in 4th or 5th I would be looking over my shoulder in a concerned manner;
3) for us, it is right to stick with young. British players. So Williams and Powell were taught a lesson by Carney? It's a price worth paying if they develop into great players. They may not, but rather than run off to the NRL I will accept the odd off day;
5)!how can Stevereed retain that level of rage - it's not as if any Wiganer gives Hull KR a moment's thought. Thank god they're playing a derby next week so he can turn his fury on OF;
7) as for Wane, he has done so much for the development of young English players as to deserve far more than the contempt heaped upon him. He is a decent man wihp loves our game. If he does keep his job, next year he' have Sam back to add inspiration to the structure
2. as you are in 3rd I would start looking over your shoulder...bit complacent are you not?
3. its not as if Wigan havent pulled in NRL players over the years,often after English teams have brought them over.
5. Dead easy. Doubt any Wigganer gives any thought to us junior sides,thats how arrogant they are. Not a Derby the Derby!
7. Not convinced WANE has done a lot for youth development but the contempt he receives has a lot to do with his comments to the press.
