I think we could do without some of the comments in the League Weekly from Shaun Wane about dual registration. Under the heading, "Bowen dual reg move "unlikely"" there is about a third of a page the first paragraph of which describes "Matty Bowen is unlikely to suffer the ignominy of being put out on dual registration despite losing his place in the Wigan team." The article then goes on to say about our partnership with Wigan and Wane is saying because of Bowen's past in the game down under he would treat him differently and not send him out on dual reg but adds "If I desperately need to give him a game (on dual registration) I will, but I'm reluctant to do that".
The article also says that Wane and Radlinski have sat down with Hampshire and Tierney and explained their position with Sam Tompkins coming back next season. They talked about changes of position and Wane says, "Rocky can play in the halves while Lewis played on the wing at Salford on Easter Monday". So we might not need to move Murphy out of FB if we get Tierney on DR.
If ever you needed proof that Wigan dictate to us you only had to hear Mark Fryer's interview on Radio Cumbria yesterday. Walsh asked him about the Farkas situation and Fryer said we had looked at that option but Wigan had been very insistent on Doran coming here instead and had pushed hard for it, and so that's what happened.
