he said he was better than FPN

So in effect he played to the game plan perfectly. Bullock is lazy in defence and doesnt run his weight after the first run as hes knackered. People are saying how good he is but seriously I think hes been poor.


I’m glad you’ve said that because if I said it I would be accused of being a troll. Bullock isn’t that good. He’s rubbish in defense and has one good run a game then goes missing

I wouldn’t say accused, I think it’s well proven.

I was made up when we managed to get him offloaded last year, as was pretty much everyone IIRC. Bullock doesn't have the same rep but has performed way better so far, presumably for a lot less cap space.



He also played in every single game in 2017, whilst other props were missing games left right and centre. Not saying he was a world beater in anyway in 2017 but i will he was clearly homesick but stuck it out and was crucified by sections of fans who at the same time sang BFUT’s name from the terraces after 2 off the ball tackles, 4 missed tackles and 2 carries. Bullock has performed better so far but i will remind you that the signing was ridiculed on here at the time.

I hope that we already have Bourouh and Roden tied down as they look like proper modern hookers.

Dudson weren’t a bad player, I’d have him now over Bullock. Not that Bullock is poor, he’s half decent. Think it was Dudson discipline on and off the field particularly with diet that was his down side.i heard Wane had to ban him from Kebab King in Wigan at one point.

Moral of the story is the 2013 squad was better in quality than his years, I think we are 2 stars short. We are definitely 1 short as we have a spare marquee spot.

I would suggest that most teams squad was better in 2013 than it is today.

Go further back than that and the Wigan side of 2000 is better than most of our title winning sides and they won nothing.

It's an interesting point that's open for discussion. For what it's worth I think you're right.
