And yet despite all this we're a dropped catch away from golden point.

That’s the frustration.

We are still a top competitive side despite our lack of quality props.

As I said earlier replace our props with nearly every other SL teams and we do the double.
Unofficially the most boring poster on Cherry and White.

How many of our props are off contract in 2022?
I genuinely don’t know but I don’t think that any are so not sure how resolve the issue without deteriorating the quality of the squad in other positions

Clubb is. Clark will leave without game time - his agent has already said he's frustrated about it.

Our prop problem is started by the fact we've no big meter makers in the backs who can bring it out of our 10-20-30 areas. Hull's props and forwards in general were going forward off quick ptb from their backs. We haven't had that all season. We've been missing Manfredi, Gildart and Marshall who make big meters and quick ptb. That's where our problems start and we need good tactics to overcome that and Lam can't provide them. When Hodgson saw the team sheet an hour before ko he must have had a smile from ear to ear.

Once again in a big game team selection was more than questionable. We knew Hull's props would come after us big time so we needed Bullock and Singleton to start. Again in a big game Zac's kicking had to be watched. It was poor from minute one. Lam should have changed kicker 5 mins before half time not 5 mins before the end.

Poor team selection, poor tactics and poor game management led to that defeat and that's down to Lam IMO.

If we want to win trophies then IL/Rads have to start looking for Lam's replacement now, if they've not already.


We have the top metre maker in Superleague and four in the top twenty.

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

I’m quite confident that Clubb has signed an extension and we can’t make Clark move without I suspect using some of the cap.
I think we’re stuck with what we have unless we sign a marquee prop

We are short of 2 or 3 decent props

Anyway Lam says Smithies goes back into the middles so we’re sorted

Yet again, typical Wigan start to turn it on with five minutes to go and a mountain to climb.

No it doesn't, but some people are going on like we lost to the 86 Kangaroos.
