My god, there was a time that we would sign literally anyone from Wigan no matter how shot they were wasn’t there...
It's not how much talent you've got, it's what you do with it that counts.

You'd be hard pushed to find who was less impressed at being transferred to Leeds, Wane or Crooks. In fact Wane pretty much replaced Crooks in the squad. Not a master stroke.

Slightly off topic but I have to say that the way Kev is focusing on the culture at the club has to be applauded.

We might need one or two mavericks to take us up a level but this side seems committed and hard working.

Looking back it’s easy to see turmoil and issues at Leeds. Craig Innes wasn’t too complimentary about his transition from RU and that was before RU was fully professional...

Oldham were a target as well, we got Ray Ashton, Hugh Waddell, Wigan got Andy Goodway, Mike Ford

Goodway was a funny one seem to remember he was coming back from a bad arm break all but ready to retire and was persuaded to not retire and sign for us and see how it went. Didn’t work out, but we did the same with Gary Connolly and that went well. Gregory was past it but we needed a 7 desperately after Goulding was sacked.

He was great for 3-4 years and probably the best prop in the world at one point but then declined rapidly.

as a Wigan fan i would say Jamie Peacock hands down, and certainly a player i would have loved at Wigan. Could certainly handle himself and play a bit :)

Kylie Leuluai is one i had a lot of respect for. Turned up week in week out and very rarely took a backwards step. Perhaps didnt get the plaudits of some of the others, and i would say one of the unsung heroes of your successful generation.

Barry Mac, dont really need say much else about him. I like good hard prop forwards, and he fits the bill :)
