Williams defense was as good as it's ever been this year. Still not great though

I can’t believe there are even thoughts in people’s heads about shifting Wighton. Him at 1 was by so, so, so far our best thing this year.
well, I guess you could say that I'm buy curious.

Bateman and Sutton are playing Warrington now if anyone's awake.

Because his strengths are his running game and passing game. His one on one defence which he rarely uses at FB.

Weaknesses; Defensive positioning for kicks. Errors under high ball.

Didn't see the game but Bateman had 2 try assists, 4 offloads and 150 metres without a linebreak. Great numbers.

Sutton only made 60 metres but had a try and 48 tackles.

They won.

I'm looking forward to JBateman arriving, acclimatising and knuckling down to what will be arguably the toughest preseason ever..

From all reports he goes alright. He will definately struggle early with the summer training.

The Bateman signing is a bigger one than Whitehead and Hodgson (in relation to their status at the time of signing).

This is exciting

Good numbers for Bateman. Did he play lock?

Where was Sutton?

Bateman was second Row.

Sutton off the bench, but must have played big minutes to have those tackle stats.

I've watched 1st half, Bateman right side backrower, real terrier good footwork and mobility.
Sutton, bench prop looks a bit unfit but good footy smarts covered inside well. nothing the toughest preseason ever couldn't fix.

Shaun Wane, the Wigan coach, always has his props big. Any spare timber Sutton is carrying is likely to be through instruction.
