At the finale of last season's competition the club determined that they were lacking in the forwards and that some bigger players were needed. This resulted in getting George Burgess over from Australia and also recruiting Mitch Clark.
The Covid 19 pandemic required fundamental changes to the rules which meant that scrums would no longer be used. The result of this was a speeding up of the game meaning that the bigger players' advantage was nullified.
In essence Wigan geared up for a type of game that no longer existed and this has resulted in the shorter minutes and pretty ineffective involvement of the bulkier players.
