In fairness, King has had a good start to the year but overall since his arrival has been disappointing. I'd suggest that six good games doesn't compensate for number of extremely poor ones.
He may go on to win MOS this year and prove to be the best around, but don't get ahead of yourself so early in the season.

Carmont is better :lol:


For the last two seasons, he has been. :lol:
Dropkick Murphy..we actually saw and heard a mass of bouncing and scarf and flag waving to Dale Cavese that drowned out anything we could muster.. It stopped us singing our own celebratory songs, it died out seconds later when we accepted we couldn't be heard over the Wigan lot
Celebrations muted from us, job done from them. Most fans who slag them off are jealous their own club's support is nowhere near that good
-
sally cinnamon..Why not discuss Wigan? It's a rugby league message board. Wigan are the most famous brand in rugby league
-
Tre Cool..Saints fans are hopeless unless it's a cup final or grand final. Wigan fans are so much more loyal and passionate
-
the flying biscuit..Wires havent been massively succesful over the years, but I've spoke to Brian Bevan And he spoke to me and i wouldnt swap that for Wigans History, ever

Ande..on the TV i could only hear the Wigan fans with about 10 to go

For the last two years Carmont has been a good player at his best.

For the last two years ( save final 3 months of 2009 season ) King has been a world-class player well below his best. Now we are finally seeing him close to his best.

Still not earning his £300k per season salary.
Didn't William Webb Ellis pick up the ball and run, someone should really tell Rugby Union.

What's your source for that figure?

He can't be on that when you think about it?

Salary cap is 1.6 mil.

1.3 million (without king) to cover a squad with the likes of: Morley, Carvell, Atkins, Bridge, Myler, Briers Solomona etc in wouldn't be possible.

Overall King is now in a positive balance in terms of being worth it as a signing:

2008 - slow start, decent mid season, average end
2009 - slow start, very good mid season, decent end
2010 - very good start

While Cullen and Lowes were coach, he was generally ordinary apart from a good run in mid 2008, and not worth the money Warrington shelled out. However since Smith has been coach he has been one of the best strike centres in the league, his try scoring record is good and he's done damage more in line with what he did in Australia.

Also King does look to me like a good overseas pro, he's committed and hard working and didn't sulk when he was getting a lot of criticism early on, he manned up, admitted he was crap to the press, and knuckled down and now he's doing the business.
