Another added: “Smart signing that bolsters our forward pack, which will make Field, French, Cust and Smith even more dangerous than they already are.

A third agreed: “Prop experience is a key addition this season, especially in the play-offs. Brilliant coup.”

Another questioned: “There must be something not right at Warrington. To be where they are in the league and to let Cooper and Charnley leave is nuts, especially at the business end of the season. This is shrewd business by Wigan.”
