The road to Wigan Pier...

According to Wigan their new “marquee signing” Andy Powell is "exactly right for rugby league."

“Marquee signing?” A 31 year old former union international currently nowhere near the Wales team and who appears not to have been offered a new contract by a team in the lower reaches of the Premiership?

And as for being "exactly right for rugby league" I’ll refrain from any comments about Powell having a reputation for being a few leftovers short of a bubble & squeak.

Still, on a positive note, Sale to Wigan is just a short hop up the M60, M62 and M6 by golf buggy.

Sensible move though.

Andy Powell has always played like he belongs on a rogba leeague pitch. Crap tackling technique, complete lack of tactical nous and looks pretty stupid too. But a decent strong runner - can picture him now tucking the ball under his arm and trucking it up, deliberately looking for someone's shoulder to smash his face on, then driving to the ground and humping the floor for a bit.

And that bit after they're tackled and get up looking indignant and start shoving the tackler for no reason - he'll excell at that.
