SPECULATION Scott Taylor could be on the move from Wigan Warriors has resurfaced.

The prop has fallen out of favour at Wigan – and Super League rivals have taken note.

Taylor was linked with a move to Hull FC earlier this season, and is thought to still be on their radar.

Given Taylor’s stock, it is no surprise other clubs are keeping tabs on the situation.

The 23-year-old – who enjoyed Challenge Cup and Grand Final success last season – has not figured for the Warriors in nearly two months.

Having been a starting front-rower earlier in the campaign, he was relegated to the bench at the end of June – before being dropped altogether after the loss at Widnes at the end of August.

And given the strong form of Dom Crosby, Ben Flower, Eddy Pettybourne and Tony Clubb since, his chances of figuring in the Grand Final charge would appear limited.

The Warriors took out an option on his contract for 2015, meaning they would be entitled to a transfer fee for the ex-Hull KR man if another club wanted to prise him away.

Wane has plenty of strength in the front-row department.

As well as the four players who have figured in their three straight wins during September, Gil Dudson and Ryan Sutton are waiting in the wings – and James Greenwood has returned from a loan spell at London.

Wigan have also signed Wakefield’s Taulima Tautai for next season.
