Thought he looked average in a very good Salford side. Gave away two stupid penalties.
I think when his stats come out for last nights game Callum, this statement will look even more ridiculous. If you are the future of rugby league journalism god help us. My view last night was that Wigan’s main attack threats are down the left edge. Griffin defended that threat impeccably all night on Salford’s right. I’m not just saying it because we have signed him but I’ve watched him closely the last two weeks and he’s been a machine.

Was better two weeks ago. Solid again.

I imagine he will play front row for us. Doing the tough stuff. Doesn't have the strike we should aim for in the back row.

Not at all disappointed he's signed
Griffin front row?

Play him in the 2nd row. Let Holmes,Foster and McMeeken fight it out for the other spot.

Looks like a good player and will definitely be better than what we have in the back up positions.... Does give a few penalties away though

Looks perfect for loose forward how it's played in the modern game. Not quick enough for 2nd row but tackles all day and has quick PTBs

57 tackles in a grand final not too shabby.

Ok as a squad member or on the subs bench, but the back 3 for me will be JSL, McMeeken & Foster with Watts, McShane & Hepi the front three.

Hepi will have to boost is engine up as he as only been coming of the subs bench if he is going to be a starting prop, Griffin looks a tad light for a prop but were ever he plays he will not let us down very happy with his signing

Respect you’re opinion stuey but I cannot see Hepi being a starting prop in SL when he wasn’t a starting prop in the Championship. As for Alex Foster, he’s got a way to go to get back into the starting 13.

Personally, if everyone was fit fit the start of the 2020 season, my front 6 would be:

Watts
McShane
Smith
JSL
Mcmeeken
Griffin

Millington
Moors
Cook
Milner

Massey
Hepi
Holmes
Foster
O Neill
Peachey

I'd imagine Griffin will defiantly be in the run on side first game of next season even with a question mark over moors there will be more competition for places than there was season Just gone

I think Holmes will start at second row. He may not be electric but he's solid, can do 80mins and is a leader.

I'll go with:

Watts
McShane
Massey
Holmes
McMeekan
Griffin

Smith
Millo
Milner
JSL

Pecking order after:
Cook
Moors
Foster
O'Neill
Hepi
Peachey

Fight for places is until round 2 when half are injured.

From what I’ve seen of Griffin I can’t see him being in the 17 if everyone is fully fit.but as that never seams to happen these days I think he is filling the Chris clarkson role of filling in wherever needed

I'd agree with this. Cant really see where Hepi will fit. He's not a prop that's for sure and he doesn't start many games for Toulouse. I like Foster, but the lad has had an awful long time out and so starts behind a few others. Holmes I would imagine will fight for a place in the 13.
Moors, like Foster, has had a terrible injury and it's unlikely he'll be back to his best early in the season. Peachy and O'Neill will look for places on the bench next season to aid their development, so that leaves Millington, Cook, Milner n Massey fighting for places in the 17.
For me, that says we definitely need another prop....and not just a filler-in project. We need someone to come in that will be in the 17 from the start.
