Just heard the tragic news about Graham.
He died in his Lloret hotel having supported Wigan at the Camp ou the previous day.
Full mark's to the club for their financial assistance in repatriation his body.
My condolences to his family and what a wonderful gesture by Wigan.
I am a Wakey fan but respect such gestures which show what a wonderful family the RL community really is.
Well done to everyone concerned with this decision.

Well done to the club for that nice gesture.

Rest in Peace to Graham, it’s a shame.

There are times when sport is put into perspective and this is one of them. The club have been outstanding in this matter and their handling of it has been very classy. They haven’t gone to press, social media or their website with it, they just worked with the family. Form as they say is temporary but class is permanent. This club has class by the bucketful!

A nice touch by the club and for all the right reasons too. As beleaguered as they are this could have been seen as an opportunity to enhance their reputation. Ironically, by keeping quiet that is exactly what they have done in my eyes.
