    correct.

    The fact that they have to try and bend the rules to fit Tommy Leuleuia into their squad just shows how terrible/desperate they are.

    The point's more about how they constantly seem to get a favourable decision from the RFL - whether that's stuff like this, their flagrant flouting of the salary cap in 2006, or disciplinary panel rulings.
    I f*cking hate wi*an.

    The salary cap cheating in 2006 was one of the most blatant bits of cheating ive ever seen, something that they should have been absolutely hammered for rather than getting the slap on the wrist they did. Likewise Ben Flower should have been banned for life rather than the pitiful punishment he got. But i see this as something different to both of those, its them signing a player who is ancient and crap, its not like he, or any of the other overseas players they have signed, is any good, they arent anything to worry about, they are garbage and a long way behind us.

    Wigans new signing at prop forward Silva - description on the Wigan announcement:

    Before playing Rugby League, Silva competed in mixed martial arts including jiu-jitsu, boxing and MMA fighting.

    Sounds about right.

    I hope it is. Cust however is very, very highly rated by those that claim to have amazing NRL knowledge. I'm not sure how he's that good if he couldn't get a game over there and hasn't disgraced himself off their field. This guy is also meant to be a handful, although pretty raw.

    The current MOS process means a player is more likely to pick up consistent MOS points if he’s a decent enough player in a poor team.

    true, given that even if a team loses the judges tend to give the best player on the losing team at least 1 point. he is likely to be their best player so will pick up easy points every week.

    The way I see it Cust is essentially just a 1-for-1 replacement for Hastings. Like Hastings, he'll be one of their best players and biggest threats, doesn't mean there's any real cause for concern though, especially looking at the rest of the squad.

    In that he's like Fifita. That's how he's been described to me. Raw as they come but has the potential to cause absolute chaos.

    It always starts there. He expresses he's unhappy, gets his agent to look for 2023. Finds a club, player says 'wish it was this year', club say it can be. Player fails to report in for training and all of a sudden a 'mutual agreement' is in place for him to go early for 'family reasons', or usually with Wigan because of some unreleased vehicle/drink/drug related crime.

    He could be going straight away being reported down under that Lams son at the roosters is eyeing up a move to SL so there could be a move to the crust munchers on the cards but hes bang average at best

    He's rumoured to have signed for Leigh. That's what the Mole was tipping on Twitter as well.

    Hope he stays because he's not been very good. Wraps himself up in cotton wool for 2022 so as not to jeopardise the NRL move to be even worse.
