If you were a top NRL, or even RU scout, would you not be keeping an eye on the players in the Wigan academy?

It's the price we pay for the success we've had.

The NRL obviously has a Wigan based scout.

No other team gets poached like ours.

In the shop window is by way of continually including the get out clause in a players contract should an NRL club come sniffing round.

We’ve apparently offered Hastings an NRL get out clause to tempt him in to signing. What that means I’m not sure but I just hope it’s something only available at the end of a season and not mid way through. If he signs then goes home within a couple of months we’ll be stumped.

If any anything it should be a 4 season contract with the option after 3 but we have a spineless owner who is all too happy to let players toddle off to the NRL mid contract, The difference between Wigan and the other big 4 clubs

Actually, the biggest difference between Wigan and the other big 4 is the size of the trophy cabinet!

So you are happy that Lenagan has offered a player a contract that states he can leave as soon as an NRL club comes knocking?, Do Saints, Leeds or Wire do the same or do they actually manage to retain their top players, Lenagan is spineless when it comes to enforcing contracts, He let's players go when he can pocket a nice shiny fee but won't sack/release any player/coach when it's going to cost him money to do so, Sorry but the only moronic post here is yours, We are Wigan and we deserve better :!:

Better than all the trophies he's delivered us?

There is definitely an issue about our ability to sign and retain star names at present, but that doesn't nullify the 9 major trophies that IL has secured for us.

If nothing else, I'd have thought that would cause a so-called fan to moderate his language a little bit.

Some of these hate-filled, insult-riddled posts are pathetic, ridiculous and embarrassing.
