Tigers are also top 17 in attack and top 17 in competition pointsWould have to pay overs to get Wighton. Team still needs a FB, and more importantly, a general.

He seems to have social issues, but from a game perspective, Hastings was a HB who organised and created tries with an inferior forward pack.

Williams a better get for mine. He's an organiser which the club crucially needs.
