So Lewis Tierney is back in the Wigan juniors ? I've found that aspect of things very strange this season . Players seemingly available but not ending up here . Players like him are way above age grade rugby . You'd think we would be below the Wigan first team in the pecking order for players , but often seemingly we're not . I'm a fan of DR , when it works as it was sold to us , but that's been to rare this season . Been a few issues , in availability and numbers especially , that have been hard to fathom .

I agree David M wholeheartedly. This is where DR does not work whatsoever.

There is no reason why Tierney needs to go and play under 19's other than to bolster the team if they have an important game or have injuries. Tierney has played a few games for us at a much higher level than under 19's - Halifax and Fev recently being examples.

Slight benefit that we have Burke - hope he puts a shift in

Wigans priorities seem to be to have teams strong enough to win there superleague and under 20s games and then look at DR rather than player development.

Doran could have done with town game time last night was a massive leap for him. Is this the last game of mcavoys ban?

Notice Gareth O'Brien is in Warringtons squad on sunday that's a big boost as he has been the catalyst for Swintons revival

Seems that way . Wane has injuries yet always finds young kids to come in and play top SL level!!

I will never understand why there's a shortage of players available in a rugby factory like that . They're there , but don't make it here . Priorities must be the key as you say .

Should be the last game of the ban for Liam on Sun. It was 3 games and he should have taken the early guilty plea route and he'd then have been playing on Sunday.

Bit of a slip-up on that one

Replying to gillmeister.......a centre,a half back and 2 forwards.....? In what type of timescale ? Where do you get your info from ? There's no whispers of names in the press or on here , plus did you say full quota this week of dr well we are 2 short there already so you getting poor information by the looks of it.

I said that we had four Wigan players available as of early in the week and we've got three not sure why thats changed maybe Vievers was happy with three. I believe the outside back is a few weeks away the back row forward who has been named will be available as of Batley and the names of the other two players are not known to me nor timescale. I won't name the source of info on here though.

Fair shout ref source, Positive that there's incoming players though.the best thing about the fev game bar the Olstrum situation is that PVs squad grew by 2 as although they've had a fair bit of bench action he knows now he can rely on Lucock and Duerden as genuine first teamers and when Mcavoys back he can replace Shackley in front row and the incoming Stoscak I presume can release Stack into centres for the short term until PV can sort that out. Such a shame about Olstrum ,named as the best loose forward in the league last year now if he's included there's a danger he will disrupt a fantastic spirit that's developed without any real input from him.

I think Olstrums troubles have been away from the club and I don't think there has been any suggestions of him causing disharmony amongst the team, so let's get off the lads back and give him some support when he pulls on that Town shirt. Come on you Town.

How many chances is he allowed?

I'm sure his team mates aint overjoyed when he fails to turn up time after time. Good player, but he is extracting the urine  don't you think?

We'll at the moment - numbers wise beggars can't be choosers ! If it's as bad as last week numbers wise mcavoy might have to play with a head guard on - fake tash drawn on ha

Leave KARL alone - sometimes there's things more to life than rugby league, had the BOD recruited a squad rather than a football team his absence would be in noticed
