Completely agree. If it was Leeds up there and clear with a chance of going for all 3 trophies; a very demanding task, then using London at home a week before the cup semi would seem a great opportunity to rest key players. May not work out well for us but Saints have a very strong squad and at home will still compete well with London.






What you looking at?....Butt Head!!

Leeds were fined when Doug Laughton was in charge for resting players before CC semi.Im not sure if the rules have changed.Will you complain if Hull rest players?

We have enough opportunity to avoid relegation this year with the games remaining.

We can’t control what anyone else will do. We can make sure we don’t give up more soft losses though.

We could do with Lui and Martin really having a dig for us.

It's a funny one. They brought in the squad rules as they are as a direct result of Mr Millward's team selection for the game against Bradford. They didn't however make any rules about who needs to be named in said squad. As long as they are eligible players, we can field whoever we want. I'm sure there's some form of 'spirit of the game' clause in the rules somewhere, but difficult to actually punish us for it.

The initial plan was the rest half the squad against London and half against Halifax. But it seems they are taking Wembley seriously this year and aren't risking that.

Leeds will be fine in the grand scheme of things. London will likely still go down. The main victims of this crime? Perhaps Halifax, who'll face a full strength, fresh as a daisy Saints side.

Saints have earned the right to do what the hell they like with their squad. Theyve built a 10 point lead at the top so I dont blame them for resting players.

Cheers missed that. Still think Saints will compete well though.

We need to take care of our own business anyway, we have a kind enough fixture in Hull at home who also have focus on the Semis.

Correct it's still in our hands with enough winnable games.
