Brian Noble gave an interview to BBC Radio Merseyside in which he advocated the bringing of Union players into League.
As there in a risk in that they've never played our code he suggested that only a small proportion of their salary be counted against the cap.
It is a remarkable co-incidence that only a couple of weeks ago this interview was played and now we are linked with a Union coach. If anyone knows quality, international standard Union players worldwide, Eddie Jones does.

There is also a report being done for the RFL by consultants as to the reasons for the disastrous England performance in the World Cup. Maybe they know already that it will be suggested in the report that we are missing quality Union players and the RFL/SL have never come to terms with Union professionalism from 1995. So possibly Brian Noble and Ian Lenagan know some of the changes that are to be made which will bring about the improvement in British Rugby League both at club and International level.

Maybe of course a case of 2+2=5 but that's what happens when two such remakable co-incidences occur!


Carry on.......

Christ, the Wiganers make a good point in some cases when they say we're the worst fans in SL.

It'd be worth getting Jones just to get Owen back.

OK I'll continue......
The other more likely outcome if Jones does arrive at Wigan is that he'll be the Performance Director following Joe Lydon's departure.
That's of course if he does arrive here!

Farrell as sh!thouse prop, Shane Williams as fullback, Dan Carter as the replacement 6, and Luke McCallister at centre please.

With the current wage structure mate, I don't think that would break the cap, but it may run it close.

Obviously that would be the entire squad listed above, but hey!!!!!

I'd take McCallister in a flash though - weren't we linked with him a few years ago when he was breaking through?
Don't worry - It only seems kinky the first tiime you try it!

According to the Guardian, this may not be something that Brian Noble will welcome, and I may be interpreting this wrongly, but my first read of this was Eddie Jones going to be a direct replacement for Brian. Either way, this will cause disruption to the Wigan camp. I hope they put these rumours to bed quickly!

But it will come as a shock to Brian Noble, Farrell's former Great Britain coach who is in the last year of his contract with the club having saved them from relegation in 2006 and guided them to within one game of the Super League grand final in each of the last two seasons.

Ian Lenagan, the Wigan chairman with whom Noble has never enjoyed an easy relationship, refused to comment on the Jones rumours when they first surfaced on Christmas Eve and he was equally noncommittal today. But the rumours have re-emerged with a report in the Australian newspaper. It claims that an announcement on Jones's future "could come as early as next week"."

I would surmise NO. He would cost too much.

Owen Farrel would be our best signing from Saracens anyhow.
