Any news on the new contract?

It was reported on a few weeks back that he'd yet to sign a new deal?

I don't understand how we can still be negotiating with a player for such a key position? I like Powell btw & hope he signs, but if he doesn't - we're up poop creek Surely the club should set a deadline on this kind of thing and once it passes, both parties move onto other options?

Confirmed by many reliable posters that he has signed a new contract along with Bibby and Isa.

Fair enough.

Funnily enough, I originally had the intention of doing a post about how weird it was that the club haven't officially announced Bibby, Isa and Powell's new contract + the signing of Thornley too. I can't think of another pro sporting organisation that doesn't announce new deals when they are signed?

Huddersfield have only just announces Fages signing and Saints haven't announced Hurrell yet, even though they were agreed months ago.
SAINTS THE ORIGINAL AND PERENNIAL CHEATS

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy
For 75 - 0 you get sod all.

Wigan had eight in a row
Saints have five in a row

Warrington - you just need to pop onto their forum and they are virtually all complaining about the same things as Wigan fans complain about :)

Those are new signings though (granted I spoke about Thornley). What about new deals?

I can also understand the above, Fages was in the GF so these things normally wrap up after the last game.

Sarcasm or not, I'd say that yeah I'd say we probably do.

We know all about Zak and his contract situation, but nothing about three lads who've signed new deals.

Brilliant from the club

https://wiganwarriors.com/blog/2021/10/10/bibby-positive-year/. Do a piece on how he thought the season went, but don't mention the contract extension.
