    Fair point, but when it comes to English lads they have to do extra to get praise over there as we know they look down on our comp and so on.

    I bet him and the family canít wait to get rid of Sydney for a day round penny flash 😆

    Seems odd to me, surely he had other offers, if your family and life has been over there why go to Wigan?

    Money, to win things? Struggling to get this

    No it isnít. Hastings is good business and no one has said otherwise. That fat muppet isnít and I hope heís costing them a fortune. In any case they need another 10 forwards.

    Neither. Just out of interest, is there a reason that you reply to my post that simply agrees with someone and not the original poster.
    Typical of some posters on here really. Act like kids when someone has a different opinion.

    Be a poor move by Cas. He's very ordinary these days. All that coke and booze catching up with the scumbag?

    Doubt Cas would have him back. If they do and he screws up again then they deserve it.

    I would guess cas would be the only club on his mind if he's asked if Wigan will release him
    Powell would have him back in a shot the fans would be more unsure I think

    It would be rather ironic if they had to pay a fee for him.

    GB is clearly a very good signing for Wigan.

    He and Hastings will be big improvements in problem areas. No idea on the other winger, but if they move on ZH they wonít be losing much.

    I think Burgess is an upgrade on what Wigan have and definitely addresses a 'need' in their squad. However I don't think he's a 'great' signing. He's been poor for over 2 years and I was surprised when he was still being named in the England team. Lets put it this way, if Saints signed an Aussie who had once been good but since has been poor for over 24 months would many on here be saying its 'great' business? Souths know what they are doing and its a sensible move on their part. I don't think he'll be bad at Wigan, he'll be a solid player but doesn't strike fear into me either.

    The Hardaker back to cas is a rumour that Just won’t go away and apparently nearly happened even when he’d signed for Wigan before he’d pulled on the shirt.

    Cas will be a threat again within 2 years if they get him and the other targets, mark my words (sorry for OT)
