  1. Let's hope he finally reaches his full potential with us as he hasn't done so with Hull.

    He's a ball playing loose forward and we've missed that this year with Grix being injured.

    Allows Harrison and Westwood to move up to props and maybe if we move Currie into the centre and Atkins into the 2nd row we'd have the following potential team next year

    1. Johnson; 2. Lineham, 3. Ratchford, 4. Currie, 5. Russell; 6. Gidley, 7. Sandow; 8. Hill, 9 Clark, 10 Sims, 11. Hughes, 12 Atkins, 13. Westerman. Subs: 14. Dwyer, 15. Dodds, 16. Westwood 17. Laithwaite


  2. I think you're both right.

     

    It was a publicity stunt, tongue in cheek, that did fall totally flat by our abject performance on the night.

     

    Shaun Wane has never struck me as an intellectual and I'm sure he used it as a motivational tool to get Wigan up for the match, and we shouldn't really be gifting them that ammunition!!


  3. I think the "Agar experiment" has been disappointing to say the least.  I undertsand he "coaches" the team rather than Smith (as did Poaching) and although we bemoan our half backs for lack of creativity, what is blindingly obvious is that the players around the half backs just don't seem to be running the correct lines to give the half backs the options they require to confuse defences.

     

    When we had Briers, Monas, Hodgson and were attacking, even the fans never knew who was going to get the ball because there were so many options for Briers to chose from - whatever happened to our attacking prowess??

     

    Hopefully, with Briers back in the 1st team coaching setup next season, we'll see a return to this free flowing rugby that we all love to see!

     

    And it would be good if Agar moved on, but not sure what the state of his contract is............................
