    I’m able to watch BBC North West on Sky and saw last night’s interview with Shaun Wane. I got the impression that he wants to come back to League. If he does, I just hope he doesn’t go back to Wigan.

    I don’t know whether I should admit it on here but I’ve warmed to Wane since he left.

    I agree, I donít want to see him back there

    I think people didnít realise how good of a coach he is. His style isnít great but he got the best out of an average bunch (by Wigans standard) and he held it all together

    Iíve met him a few times and heís a nice bloke as well.

    Don't say that, it will never be forgotten on here if he goes back and is a success.

    I saw what he was supposed to do in Union but have heard nothing about him since he went to Scotland. I assume he has started? If so it is very low profile and I don't imagine it will suit him, so wouldn't be surprised nor particularly sorry to see him back in League.

    I listened to him on the 5 Live podcast, he was explaining how heís loving the extra family time heís getting and enjoying things like walking the dog etc, essentially saying that heíd worked 24/7 as Wigan coach to the detriment of other parts of his life. Iíd be surprised if he came back so soon but the temptation might get the better of him I suppose

    The timing of this is very interesting. A deliberate ploy by England RU or the Lions to specifically target League coaches to work on attacking structures?

    I just hope that is what it is. I really hope it's not a ploy by Messrs Long and Gleeson for one last hurrah in a shared house darn sarf.

    I have always said union is a players game , but a terrible spectator sport . With its never-ending scrummaging & mauling . God only knows why union play 2 wing forwards . Now the powers that be have decided to bring in league coaches to address this . I dream one day the two codes will merge & play a game called rugby , with each team having 13 men . If only dreams came true .

    Who can deny anyone the opportunity to earn some money?

    I doubt Longy or Glees earned anywhere near good money despite playing at the highest level and having successful careers.

    Longy looks like he could probably put a shirt on and turn out for Harlequins......

    Your name really suits you SADMAN.

    You really do come out with some rubbish, just consider the logistics of where the two teams play.

    Poetic licence my dear boy. A little hyperbole doesn't harm anyone, don't get upset about it.

    When you look at the nosedive after he left, he probably was working 24/7.
