With the frequency in fixtures now increasing further, this week will be huge for Trinity if we ant to avoid finishing bottom.
Huddersfield on Thursday 19.45 ko and then KR on Sunday at 2.0.
It's safe to say that if we dont get something out of at least one of these games (especially KR), we will be getting the wooden spoon.
2 games in 4 days is a real test on player resources and for the coaching staff.
Not much time for training and working on any plans, it will be trying to recover to go again.

Finding a reason to duck out of the Thursday game would be a shrewd move :wink:

We should be getting players back but that seems to have no effect whatsoever these days.

Sad, but have almost lost interest knowing that generally we are poop for a period where we soak in 20 plus points then have to listen to the usual after match drivel.
Obviously I want two wins but........

I agree.
However, since lockdown, we have had 2 games (1 v Shudds and 1 v FC), with the rest being against top 4 contenders.
I know there aren't any easy games but, the next 2 are easier (in theory).
The real worry is that we've played (and lost) 9 games since the restart and I'm not sure if anyone, including the coach, knows who our best HB pairing are and who we should be playing at #9.
With fixtures coming thicker and faster now, team selection is even more critical.

Can we actually get a "W" ?

Fail this week and we will be unlikely to gain another point this season.

Maybe that's to our advantage??? Hull KR have the same turnaround, the difference is that they may ordinarily do some planning and work on opposition weaknesses, whereas we don't look like we do that anyway so their prep might be more affected than ours.

A bit tongue in cheek there, but I'll grasp any straw I can at present.

If at the end of our first completed set we kick the ball into touch, I think i am switching off until we get a new coach.

Johnstone and BJB both playing would be a huge boost for us, and Miller coming back in should give us a left hand side attacking option again.
