Shaun Briscoe is frustrated not to be playing and wanted to go on dual to Workington.But your club did not want him.That is a surprise as he is a quality player.He must be world class your fullback.

I seem to remember Hepi playing all his rugby at centre til we switched him to loose forward and i think he did ok !   Watkins, Hardaker etc. 

 

I wouldn't have him over Miller or Carter but a player of his quality could be useful in a position which isn't our strongest.

If Connors future is in the halves , and Hulme isn't under our control , it doesn't look the most potent in attacking terms then .
We could do with an injection of real line breaking pace and threat out there . Getting its something else - Troy Savage was very tasty in that role .Rooney was in the warm up a couple of weeks ago ,
is he near a return then ?

If Calders is missing then and he is available I'd have Hulme in the centres for the foreseeable future and Mossop on the wing with
Connor shifted infield to get more involved , show his quality properly and control our kicking game .

I wonder if we have relented and taken Briscoe for this game ? Brett Carter has tweeted that he isn't playing on Sunday, says he's fit to play but hasn't been selected !

Workington Town. Then. Now. Always.

Carter has put out teasing tweets before hasn't he ?! Seems a bit (very ) fishy!!! I somehow think he may squeeze into our team.

i would take bretts tweets with a pinch of salt, if hes not playing it will because of injury, why would we not select him?

I hope you are wrong although you usually seem very well informed.    If Carter is not fit then fair enough but if he is fit and not selected then it can only be  for a disciplinary reason because he is by far our best full-back and always puts his body on the line.


I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

Im not 100% sure whether Carter is in the team but I'm fairly confident that you will see Briscoe and if Carter was to miss out it has nothing to with anything he has done that I'm 110% certain of

If carter got injured I'd put Connor at fullback and leave miller on the wing

I'd be stunned by that . It would turn upside down everything we've said about DR . That's one position we don't need strengthening , and anyway there are others who would make way before Carter to fit someone in . I don't know , you can't comment or criticise until we know the facts and team officially ... Probably on Sunday afternoon.
