early team news, george burgess out with a 4 match ban, also tomkins missing with a fracture and clarke with the injury sustained in the second test. richie myler to partner george williams in the halves (connor can step in if needed during the game i suspect). joe greenwood mooted to make his debut.

ticket sales looking pretty good also with only east stand upper not open for business yet, and the rest looking pretty full
The referee's indecision is final

I just hope we play Johnstone. I don't think I could put up with reading and hearing Wakey fans constantly cry arseing over his exclusion for the rest of the close season.

There wasn't many left when I got mine the other day, should be a great crowd and hopefully game.

George Burgess is suspended, Sean O’Loughlin, Sam Tomkins and Daryl Clark are all injured. We could be forced to play Tom Johnstone at this rate.

Looks like it’ll be

Lomax
McGillvary
Gildart
Connor
Makinson
Williams
Myler
Graham
Hodgson
T.Burgess
Whitehead
Bateman
Thompson

Milner
Hill
Greenwood
Ratchford

Bench looks a bit light. Could start Milner at loose and use Thompson as a straight swap at prop off the bench (or start with T.Burgess on the bench)

Yes of course we could.

Much as he's a fine athelete and an excellent RL player, he wont be filling in at Prop, Hooker, Loose Forward or Scrum Half and with Makinson in such fine form, he'll be watching from the stands.

As one sage put it on the london forum recently, they finished just outside the top 4......or as us cockneys call it 5th :D
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:
