Some tough decisions for Daryl in this game and a couple of players are going to be disappointed.
Assuming a team of:
Hardman
Ropati
Smeaton
Worthington
Saxton
Kain
Finn
England
Kaye
Dickens
Spears
Dale
Hepworth or Briggs

that leaves Hepworth or Briggs on the bench plus 3 of Maloney, Lockwood, Grayshon, Chappell, and Bostock.
Nice problem to have, but not an easy decision.

I felt we, Leigh, had no chance until the ref/TJ's appointments. A little bird tells me the ptb will be heavily policed, the tactical shoves will be penalised and then binned for. This has given us a glimmer of light if true.

Briggs on bench swapping for Kain is my guess.

Heppy starting at Loose, or I hope, our attack is 10X better with him in the team.

If I was DP (which I'm not), I'd be tempted to try something a little different, just to give Leigh a bit of a knock just before the game. My team would be:

Hardman
Ropati
Smeaton
Worthington
Saxton
Briggs
Finn
England
Kaye
Dickens
Spears
Dale
Hepworth

Kain
Maloney
Bostock
Lockwood

With Kain on the bench he can be used as an impact player either at 6 or 9, giving several different options. Yes I know he has been a stand out performer all season - just sometimes a change like that in the team sheet can knock the opposition.

We have a cracking squad and it is really hard to pick a 17 and leaving out real quality players.

Which bar? Certain ones get knowledgable fans in (yes there's a couple of them about!) but others just get the pish head know all carpet carrying bunch in!

That lot can be quite bitter and derogatory at times ;)

Not far from my house, could be there in 5 mins.

Remember, they know all, are very blinkered and only their opinion matters.


Thats why they have just avoided the wooden spoon and their club has had to ask for a cash advance aka Bradfud from the RFL. Just smile and laugh inwardly as the proof of the pudding is as they say, in the eating. Time will show who is the best club.

Would fancy us to get to the final if we play 'Fax but Sheffield are a bit of a bogey team for us and obviously have a habit of hitting form at this time of year.

Henderson is a disgrace, cheap shot. Then mouth off when Crashley and Stokes are separating him from a good kicking.

Noble saying ‘he only went for the ball‘ has persuaded me that Premier Sports isnt worth renewing.

Theres a reason Kevin is the forgotten brother.

Cummins Out.
