Tierney and Navarrete join Dragons

Wigan have today announced that Lewis Tierney and Romain Navarrete have joined Catalan Dragons on loan until the end of the season.

It appears that Tierney’s recent performances at fullback have confirmed to the coaching team that he is now a winger and not a fullback. As a consequence, the wing is probably the most competitive position at Wigan at the moment, with Davies, Marshall, Burgess and Manfredi all fighting out for a place on the wing during the Super 8’s. A great opportunity for Lewis and let’s hope he takes it!

It looks like Navarrete is homesick, so a move back to France seems ideal for him. A good prospect for Wigan but how much missing France will affect him in the future – we wait and see. Perhaps it’s inevitable that Romain will join Catalans on a permanent deal at the end of the season.

Good luck to both!
