I think everyone knows now that we need a creative half back to play alongside Forber so we have 2 options to find one out selfs or use widnes what do we do

we only need a temporary one, because when matty is fit we should be moving callum to 7. we have to be asking widnes.

But what if Callum gets injured I not saying we shouldn't play him it's just we haven't had much luck with injures

I just don't see Forber being a creative or line breaking threat in this league sorry . I don't mind Lupton at 6 if he maintains his fitness , but we need a Phillips or Gore who can scoot and inject direction longside him if we can't get a Widnes lad . At the moment it's to lateral and devoid of zip .

Well Lupton said he wants to play 13 so put him there Forber 6 and Callum or gore or another player 7 coyle isn't fit and doesn't look like he could bring anything to our side

My eyes I would replace forber I do not rate him at all only good thing u can say about him is his a good goal kicker on a good day


The best ive ever seen him play when he played for blackpool and ripped us apart when we played blackpool away

How long have a we lacked a creative 6/7?
Liam Campbell and Manihera,ould be class in this team. Manihera minus 10year!! :lol:
why do we struggle to get players from Aus/NZ?? Surely Peter Walsh or Paul Charlton would help out.

Visa regs have changed so they need a European passport or play for their country.

His kicking game is shocking! All he can do is kick for goal which is no good if we can't score trys!

I think they need direct European heritage e.g a European Mother or Father to do that. Not 100% on all the legislation but that's my take on it .

holty is the only really good half back weve had since campbell left. the likes of duffy,poisel could go down as some of the worst players ever to play for the club.

You can get away with it in the leagues we've been in but not now , your attack is totally exposed as blunt if the key positions aren't up to it now . And especially when chances are at a premium against strong defences . Packs will even each other out now , the difference is in the strike and creativity . We're learning that fast .its good to hear Charlo saying the same as the rest of us , it's in his hands to fix it and I'm sure he'll tinker things .
