  1. Thank you Eddie. I have just subscribed, having never heard of this previously, as episodes seem to cover a wide range of interesting topics.
  2. Phil Blake playing centre to a half-back partnership of Keith Holden and John Woods was just as worrying as Wire's hard as nails pack of the time. Brett Kenny for a few months in a Wigan shirt was sublime.
  3. Saracens coaching staff by any chance?
  4. As of noon on Saturday https://www.superleague.co.uk/article/1346/wigan-defeat-salford. The spirit of Maurice Lindsay prevails...
  5. Mrs Dunbar rejoice, I think. It appears to be live in a Facebook group you seemingly need to join (I haven't). https://m.facebook.com/groups/307419386583792?group_view_referrer=pages_groups_card&page_id=143253125699237
  6. Ben Flower didn't feature today in Wigan's reserve match with Hull KR. If I was after a prop, I'd enquire about a loan signing of young Ben Kilner, who is impressing in the reserves currently.
  7. Just enjoyed listening to this near-hour long interview with Ellery Hanley. Here is the link (as I'm clearly hopeless at embedding a tweet). https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p07zycbz <blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">1985 1987 1989 <br><br>Ellery Hanley remains the only rugby league player to ever win Man of Steel THREE times<br><br>In his latest &#39;At Home with...&#39; podcast, <a href="https://twitter.com/ColinMurray?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@ColinMurray</a> interviews the rugby league icon <br><br>Listen now on <a href="https://twitter.com/BBCSounds?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@BBCSounds</a> <a href="https://t.co/dzYRFJySjx">https://t.co/dzYRFJySjx</a> <a href="https://t.co/jfQVHT0aA7">pic.twitter.com/jfQVHT0aA7</a></p>&mdash; BBC 5 Live Sport (@5liveSport) <a href="https://twitter.com/5liveSport/status/1215599300899745792?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">January 10, 2020</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
  8. Add John Pendlebury to the list please. Like Pinner a loose forward who could lay a ball off. Coupled with the stand-off likes of John Woods and Tony Myler, we had elegant options back in the eighties.
  9. https://www.wigantoday.net/sport/tony-adams-i-may-not-be-from-wigan-but-i-identify-with-most-rugby-league-players-1-10195694 Found this Tony Adams-penned piece, in the Wigan Evening Post, a good read in terms of an 'outsider's' experience of RL. As he stands down, Adams seems likely to continue being an RL ambassador. Apologies if this has already appeared.
  10. I'd echo everyone's comments. Television at its best: tremendous storytelling that's both informative and uplifting. Also, a word of thanks to the community teams at Warrington, Wakefield, Leeds and others for doing the work they do. My youngest happens to have Down's syndrome and when she finishes school I dread what the future holds if people such as these aren't around.
  11. I agree, a fine signing for Catalans who was mostly good and routinely got through a lot of work. Compare this to Burgess' inconsistency of the last two years and this is the winger whose contract I wouldn't have renewed. Without having seen him enough, I wonder if Hanley is the next to breakthrough?
  12. Absolutely, fantastic try. It is brilliant watching Tonga's pace, power and skill this morning. Britain, meanwhile, aren't playing that badly but must hope the hosts need a breather.
  13. 72 Tackles! Get Smithies on the GB tour. He merits it now.
