Rest as many as possible or keep going in the hope the attack might spark ?

Play everyone who hasn’t been playing. We have been battered with injuries and poor form so a rest should help with recovery but will never help the attack this season regardless.

I would rest as many as possible, we’ve not had the extra “COVID” break that other clubs had. How many times as Lam claimed the attack was ready to click? Against an under strength Hull it was more of the same.

Options are limited in some areas but I'd definitely give Hanley O'Neil Bullock and Clark a lot of game time just on the off chance they really are needed (injury/suspension) also Isa's back so he could give someone a break

I'd rest the young props, Farrell and Gildart. I'd also test out a Hastings/Field partnership although I acknowledge there's very little time left to make that work.

I’d rest the players that have put a big effort in this season. The ones that have done it consistently over 20-25 rounds plus. That would probably be Bibby. Hardaker, Smith, Hastings, Faz, Partington and Havard (just about). I’d give Gildart the night off as well.

That would leave me at-

Hanley
Halsall Isa McDonnell Marshall
Field Powell
Bullock O’Neill Clark
Bateman Pearce-Paul Shorrocks

Subs

Byrne
Smithies (if fit)
Nicholson
Bourouh

Rest as many as possible. You can bet that Catalans will be doing the same.

I don’t think it matters, we won’t win the first play off game. Personally I’d rest and put in some fringe players. It’s a dead rubber game so no need or reason to go full strength. In fact the only reason I can think is because it’s an ‘Emergency Services’ game and there should be more than usual with hopefully some new fans coming along.

I’ve been down on us for months but I do think we’ll give the play offs a fair crack. It might be blind optimism but I think we’ve built a bit of confidence these past few weeks. It’s confidence without the ball and we’re still striving to find it with the ball but play offs victories are usually based on defence.

This is a very big ‘if’ but if Lam picks the right side we can hopefully settle down and trouble teams a bit more. There is no reason to change the backline now. Hardaker is going well at fullback, Halsall and Bibby are going well on the right and the others pick themselves at the minute given Fields continuing injury struggles. We need to get Isa back in the pack and we need more of the same from the weekend from Singleton, Havard and Byrne and if that all comes together we could win the first game and whisper it quietly but we could even pinch a place at Old Trafford. I’m still not at all convinced Catalans will find that play off extra gear.

Maybe I’m dreaming.

Il think we'll sneak a win in the first one and then get stuffed in Perpignan (again).
