He clearly isnt match fit and he says will take at least 6 games to attain that. On the bright side he hasnt come here under a cloud, his best mate, Jason Clark, is at the club. I dont think he alone will win us the GF, but he may be a component in us challenging. I actually think our 2 English props Mulhern and Butler may be just as important.
    Looking forward to the season already.
    With him only signing on for one season (that season yet to play out) do you have any one coming through the ranks to replace him for '23 or will Wire be looking to buy in again?

    Wire fans largely anticipating his season, there is an gamble element to it, but what do we have to lose?
    If anyone ever gets the chance to speak to Inglis , could they ask him how much his club paid him not to complete the move to Bath when he agreed to sign for them . Gardening leave must have been a traumatic experience lol.

    There are a few but even at the clubs with a good record of bringing youth through there are no guarantees. All clubs bring players in, even Saints.

    No idea what happened but given what came out fro Sam Burgess on his time at Bath it was probably for the best.

    How often do you think he will play?

    Hope his experience is able to help Wire go on to wi a Grand Final?
    Why on earth would you want that?

    Of course there are no guarantees and yes Saints do bring players in, thats a given and nothing wrong with it either. It wasnt an attack on Wires youth/ transfer policies.

    I was just wondering if bringing Inglis in for a season was going to hinder the chances of any youth player coming through at Wire or if he was tasked to help develop those in the system?

    I missed the question mark due to the shock of seeing that on here.

    I won't lie, there's a part of me wants to him doing what he used to be capable of (preferably against Wigan) but I'm not sure his body is up to it. Maybe not playing last year will have done him a favour.

    They were both Inglis and Burgess going to play "outside backs" at Bath , Inglis was put on gardening leave when they found out , and big Sam was stitched up by his team mates , I did put it in the public when it happened and was shot down in flames by many BUT I had a copy of an email sent to a top member of the goon shall we say coaching staff.

    I remember him in the WCC in 2015 and he was something else. As you say, a year out, letting his body recover fully he might be a threat this year.

    But on the other hand, the game is really quick over here at the moment, he might just get found out.

    I have no insider knowledge so snippets like this always intrigue me. What came through from Burgess post retirement made it absolutely clear that he hated Mike Ford who he held responsible for messing him around to give his son a clear run at the England spot.
    In his pomp Inglis would have been a sensation at outside centre in Union I would think.

    Burgess isn't the only one count me in . On the upside I think he will have a good year and it's a good signing for your club.

    It’ll be 2 years by the time he plays, he only played a handful in 2019.


    Listening to the Golden Point podcast it seems Fitzpatrick things he’s gonna be the best thing that happened to SuperLeague. Talk on there saying if he’s at 50% he’ll be one of the best ever in Superleague?

    Give me a break. That’s a massive insult to top line SL/Ex-SL players like Roby, Longy, Scully, Sinfield, Peacock, Burrow, o’loughlin, Farrell, Harris etc etc etc


    If he’d have come over a couple of years ago, great but he could be a busted flush, and SL has been a retirement home for years.

    Taking my Saints hat off, it will be good for the game but let’s be honest, we’ve not been awash with Aussie import success stories have we? Folau, George Burgess, SBW..... Hastings and Barba both won individual awards but came up short for their teams in the end.....

    The biggest recent success has been Coote, and lots of Saints fans didn’t want him.... he wasn’t what you would describe as “High Profile”

    You just know the constant story line this season is going to be

    Can Jack Hastings win a grand final with Wigan

    Will Hastings make a 3rd grand final appearance with Wigan.

    Hastings will want to leave Wigan with a Winners ring.

    I genuinely think he loves the attention and rumours. He knows that by signing these short term deals with NRL clauses etc its going to cause speculation. Ever since he came over theres been talk about his next move straight away:

    July 2018 - Signs with Salford for rest of the year. Instant speculation about his next move.
    October 2018 - Signs again with Salford but for 2019 only. Speculation starts again.
    July 2019 - Signs for Wigan for 2 years but with a get out clause after 1 year. More rumours...
    November 2020 - Confirms he is staying at Wigan but only commits til end of 2021. Guess what? More rumours...

    Hes a media whore who craves and loves the attention. Great player too.

    Was he one of their marquee players ? Could be hard for them to find a replacement now,all the half decent players have contracts already.

    They will be saving the cap space until Luke Thompson becomes available (homesick) early April.

    I believe that Thompson wouldn’t play for Wigan, based on some of his interviews where he talked about being a Saints fan looking forward to Good Friday, ripping into them and being broken hearted in 2010....
