I'd agree but my original post [although it was not abudantly clear] was talking about current options and particularly aimed at a Zak Hardaker vs Joe Burgess debate.

My view is that given the squad, Charnley and Hall should be the wingers. I think that Hardaker would be great on the bench to cover a variety of positions.

I didn't think Makinson was in the squad...

No he's not, but he should be.

I'd rather have a "who's the better option?" argument than "who's good enough?" But then, my glass is half full.

I agree. The better option is Makinson on the right wing and Hall on the left. That's my opinion anyway. They are all good enough.

If there was anyone to take Charnley's position it would be Joe Burgess, surely? A guy who has played wing all year and has come up big in some of Wigan's most important games...not that I particularly think Charnley needs replacing...

But surely Burgess plays on the left wing and Charnley on the right. Keep them on their respective wings. For me, on the right, it is Makinson ahead of Charnley, and on the left, Hall over Burgess. But isn't it great to have these options?

Sorry Johnh1, I must try harder and be certain to be politically and grammatically correct in any future posts I submit, but surely a misspelling does not make my comment irrelevant, or maybe it is a little over your head for you to reply to.

No Gary, it is not a misspelling, as if you have made a grammatical error. You are not alone in putting a 'p' into his name. But his name is 'Tomkins'. Is it too difficult to get his name right? As for the rest of your post, surely you are not criticising him for leaving that ball that 99 times of a hundred would have gone over the dead ball line. Or are you? Some of his tackles, particularly one on one against the big guys were superb.
