Next up on Monday and it looks like they are hitting a bit of form. Makes you wonder what type of side we can muster and how we bounce back from that shocking first half against Cas.
I have a feeling a win will be extremely hard and I would have thought the bookies will have them as favourites.

Doing some good things in attack but still look shaky in defence. 30-0 at HT turned into 32-18 today. If we concede one, it usually turns into 3 in a few minutes. With fatigue from the short turnaround I can see this being a high scoring contest.

Hurrell went off with a slight hamstring injury so doubt he’ll be risked with the short turnaround. I know Vastman will be devastated as he’s been looking forward to seeing him at Belle Vue all year ;)

It's hard to see a win coming. Our strength in depth is really at its limit, but we have to grind on and hope some in our side have a belter and some in the opposition having a stinker. We can hope.

I've been looking forward to seeing Hurrell but if he needs the rest then it'll be a shame to miss watching him play.






Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

Well I’m just assuming at the moment he’ll miss out, not confirmed yet but hamstrings aren’t ones you risk otherwise those 1 or 2 games you miss resting it could turn into 10-12 games if you play him and it goes completely.

I think I'd go with

Max
MCB
Croft
Lyne
BJB
Hampshire
Reynolds
Fifita
Wood
Hirst
Horo
Kirmond
Arona

Crowther
Kopi
PP
King

Don't really know Croft so if Kershaw better option then MCB in centre but I'm OK giving him a chance.

Dont think that you're too far way there, unless we get a late surprise from Chester.
I'd move MCB to centre and put the newbie on the wing though.

A great game to make a debut though and good luck to either Kershaw or Croft when they get the nod.

If Jack Croft is a Centre and MCB is a winger, why would you swap em.
I am bemused at this fannying about playing people out of position.
Ok, he's a young un with no SL experience but I don't see any value in playing him as a winger.
Course, if he goes and has a nightmare I fully expect this post to be erased from existence....:)


I ought to add, I wouldn't be surprised if those 80's Big D has been doing lately are starting to catch up with him.
If he plays, he's gonna need managing for his own good.

MCB has played centre before and to throw a young kid in at centre would be a huge ask.
Having said that, I havent seen much of Croft but, Kershaw looked ok and he can certainly do a job on the wing.

I guess we have to wait and see which 17 we go with.

At least it's only Watkins running that channel :D and whoever plays left centre should have the beating of him when we have the ball. :D

I think it will be Horo in the centre personally
