It’s not going to be easy. I don’t know the loan situations with guys like Clark, O’Neil and Bourouh but we’ll have Hardaker and Singleton (just picked up two matches) suspended, at a minimum Farrell, Bateman and Hastings playing in the superbly timed made up international fixture and French, Field and Manfredi definitely injured and I guess Smithies is still a doubt and Shorrocks doubtful with concussion.

Worst case then-

Hanley
Halsall Bibby Gildart Marshall
Smith Leuluai
Bullock Powell Havard
Isa Pearce-Paul Partington

Subs
Byrne
McDonnell
?
?

Looks like rushing players back from injury, loan call backs or playing a couple of 17/18 year olds will be the only way.

I love this game

Not sure if Clark's two week minimum is up, bring back Hankinson, on the off chance we score a try at least we'll have a goal kicker on the pitch

It feels like we’d play with 16 before recalling Hankinson. I don’t know if it’s financial but if we’ve not called him back by now, I cannot see it. I hope you’re right mind. A centre and one who can kick goals would’ve been extremely handy all of this season so far.

Agreed, there must be a reason he’s not getting recalled, financially.

If he wasn’t getting recalled when we had 2 back rowers in the centres and Hanley on the wing he won’t be getting recalled.

Him, Clark and Borough would be handy this week if we are going to compete.

Another 62-0 coming.

Manfredi injured again. Correct decision to let him leave at the end of the season imo, this can’t keep happening. If its not a big devastating injury it’s one like this that keeps him out 4 weeks.

Such a shame as he’s a class player but the time has come.






Can’t wait for us to let him go and he never picks up another injury in his career.

Yeah, fully agree sadly. He looks like he runs with a constant limp now and whilst it’s horrible to think of all the issues he’s been through, We can’t keep holding on and on forever. The talk on the other board about how the club had been disgraceful in not standing by him was ludicrous IMO. We’ve been waiting for him to be fully fit now for 5 years and he’s had a new contract in that time. I don’t think the club could’ve been any fairer with him and I’d agree with the decision to part ways now. If that comes back to bite us, us knows? I really hope it does in many ways because the lad deserves some luck.

Wigan have stood by him for more than the time he’s been in the first team too. It’s an unfortunate situation but I’d say he needs to reinvent himself as a back rower with less lateral movement if he wants a longer future in the game.

We surely cannot be up to the cap this year so it must not be Financial.

The loan deal itself my prevent a recall?

Crisis talks underway apparently between the RFL and the clubs. Some clubs are refusing to release players for the All stars team. It’s just incompetence at it’s finest the fact this game was planned on the same weekend as club games but who is to blame? The clubs didn’t want to cut the number of fixtures back, so tough to throw the flak all at the RFL.

Lam was in the paper earlier in the year saying they considered recalling him but decided not to. We haven't signed anyone since then so presume the option is still there.
