    I don't like the idea of players doing this, but I must confess to having a smile and snigger at this one.

    Please let this be true, that would be the best Christmas present I could hope for.

    Please be true, i quite liked him last year, he came over with a reputation of being difficult but proved a lot of people wrong, i thought he was good last season and came across rather humble. He may have had thoughts about the culture at Wigan, how many off the field issues has there been there over the last few years. He probably wants to go back to the NRL soon and maybe doesnt want anything to negatively affect that, something the off field culture at Wigan could do.

    It would be absolutely hilarious if true and would completely derail Wigan’s season before a ball has been kicked.

    Decent player but nothing more. I sometimes watch him and wonder what all the fuss is about. That said it would still disrupt them massively

    Looking at the bigger picture don't like it if its true making Superleague more like a "feeder league" until something better comes along. It's the goons though so the mocking bird sings into the new season.

    Default Jackson Hastings

    After youíve signed a contract Iím not sure you can turn around and say you donít fancy it anymore. From a legal perspective that is.

    As much as I hope it disrupts Wigan it could set a dangerous precedent if they allow him to rip up the contract.

    Ultimately the player has all the power in this situation. If they force Hastings to fulfil his contract, they get a player who hates them and wants to leave, which is of no use to them. The best they can hope for is that this change of heart is because of a firm offer from another side, who Wigan can then extract some form of recompense from.

    I hope he does play for Wigan next season. The game needs a strong Wigan just so long as we are stronger.

    Sounds a bit like the Shaun Edwards situation.

    Not sure if you can hold a pen with six fingers.

    I rate him as a player and was made up he was staying over here . With Hastings in the squad wigan would certainly have challenged us next year. Unfortunately SL needs players like Hasting so i hope he remains in SL

    I'm not sure, their pack isn't the best, even with Burgess.. still think they're a prop light and the back rowers are either too young or too old

    It wouldn't be the first time. Wigan would get a transfer fee from whoever he went to, I'm sure. It would definitely put a massive spanner in the works for them, though.

    If he has the same solicitor as Adrian Shelford (RIP) he will not have a problem.

    To put a bit of balance on this I hope he does not play for them because they are t***s.

    To be honest I don't really care. I'm sure we would cope whether he is there or not.
