I still put Sam Tomkins (first spell with us) down as the 2nd most exciting/attacking British born player ever to play for Wigan (1st being Hanley).


That’s a great debate. Who’s the most exciting/attacking player...
Robinson and Offiah always got people off their seats.
In more recent years Barrett was a joy to watch.

But Hanley is the best I’ve ever seen. One of the only players who could have (throughout the course of this career) played any position, and played it well.

If you’re a podcast listener I’d recommend the Matty Johns podcast. Previous week he was discussing how good Hanley was in the NRL and what it was like playing against him, even when Hanley was at the back end of his career.

I'm sorry to see George go.
He's a real talent and will probably go well at Canberra. He'd have also gone well at Wigan playing alongside Hastings.
Those two playing at 6 & 7 could have been something special. Unfortunately, from my pov, it's not going to happen.


Obviously it’s not going to happen. Lol!

Did you never see Barry Williams or Andre Stoop.... where have you been :wink:


Not British born but David 'The Doc' Murray was the most exciting fullback ive ever seen at Wigan..... for all the wrong reasons.

He had all of Central Parks hearts in their mouths every time the ball went near him.

Still not as bad as Paul Koloi though. They promised us Kevin Iro MKII and we got somebody that was scared of going near the ball and would drop it if he was about to get tackled.

I remember “the doc” very well but as you say, for all the wrong reasons.
Paul Koloi was to Kevin Iro as Gary Henley Smith was to Martin Offiah

If the poor lad had been round nowadays he’d have been fine as Sky would’ve done him a favour.

Close, couldn't play at night due to being a sun worshipper. Played one trial game for the u21s, was rubbish, never seen again!

Most idiotic post ever goes to Grimmy..... The way to restart should be an arm wrestle between a designated player from each side.
