Somebody watch Bullocks attempted “tackle” for Hull second try in the cup loss and tell me they’d be upset he’s leaving. But no the odd good 15m carry in his 12min spell and the Facebook fans really rate him.

I’d stated before and I’ll state again it’s not the young lads letting us down, it’s the senior props (bullock, Singleton, Clark, Clubb).

We should be losing 3 of them at the end of the year, hopefully Singleton can find last years form and we sign 2/3 good props.


If he gets a catchy tune like Tony Clubb he'll be a club legend.

Yeah I wouldn't be too bothered about Bullock leaving as we can't seem to get his (consistent) best out of him at all.

I would be bothered if his "replacement" is Joe Shorrocks or Liam Byrne though.

Exactly. I'd also take Chris Hill for a year.
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

Well, quite. Let's replace Bullock before we start worrying about replacing Shorrocks or Byrne. :P

Article in Wigan Today has a George Burgess interview in who says he’s spoken to IL about coming back to Wigan. I think he could well be a shrewd signing albeit in a much reduced contract, possibly even pay as you play.

With the surgeon he had who resolved a SARU players hip injury which was exactly the same as his there’s no reason why he can’t come back as fit as he was a few years ago.

Very valid point. The chances are though, that we’ll replace Bullock with Mason who doesn’t look much different to Bullock.

Interesting to hear him say that, if a move to SL was on the cards, Wigan is the place he'd
definitely go to.

Whisper it quietly, but that sounds like a player actually repaying & appreciating the effort/time/money a club has put into them. :THINK:

You’re bang on there I think. There’s obviously some real good will exchanged between both sides which may well work out to our benefit.

If he can get fit and we can get him for a decent price I personally believe he could be an answer to our propping problem
