Pat Richards?

He wasn't a hidden gem. He came to Wigan after a very good season with the Tigers. Was instrumental in that team winning the premiership.


True although I never expected for him to have the impact that he did at Wigan, especially during the 2006 season.

Giving him the kicking duties seemed to change everything, wasn’t he also played at centre initially too? I think most players would have struggled in Millwards Wigan team.

Let’s hope we find some hidden gems in the prop forward department soon.

Yeah fantastic player.

Still think his the best player I've seen kicking the ball from his own in goal area as well as from centre field.

He could win you the ball back with those kicks.

I agree with this but I also think there may be 3rd reason. The unfair abuse and criticism he got from an awful lot of our fans in his last season before going to Canberra was embarrassing at times. The lad is a cracking player and never gave us less than 100%. If he read half the comments that were written about him I’m not surprised he didn’t want to come back.


I considered that. I’d hope he’d have the sense to realise virtually any professional sports person will be subject to that irrespective of which club they play for.

I suspect being economical with the truth, he hadn’t signed for anyone...for this season.

He can only say he has signed for some one when he has been registered with the RFL if Warrington cant offload any players then as Rubber Duckie says it could be next season when he plays.

I thought Williams stated he wanted to play in the World Cup this year, so surely he would have to play for a club this season, SW already left him out of the friendly due to not playing for a while, so doubt he would be picked having not played any games for the rest of this year.
