Another quite snidey , superior comment while looking like youre trying not to be . They're good at that . We weren't gonna beat Dewsbury either , gee everything's a struggle for us .

 

Oh sorry forgot to mention Town are absolutely brilliant, you've the best pack of forwards in RL and Swinton needn't bother turning up as you make DP a fortress.

There does that make you feel better now.

it says in the paper that connor is back, but dosent mention olstrum,so maybe he does have the hanf injury. it also says thacks and calderwood are back in contention. surely we will stick with paddy flynn after his tries vs deswbury, and calders is just too much of a liability. thacks in for lawton and connor in for forber from the dewsbury game. i certainly would keep the back as they were

I'd keep hold of Lawton if available , he's just starting to hit his straps for us and has some freakish skills in the box for a big fella . He has a bit of an xfactor . If Thacks is back may be tough luck on Shacks .

i thought shacks had a far better game than lawton vs dewsbury, i also think shacks has had a better last couple of games than walne as well.i think hes really coming on now hes moved to prop. plus lawton played last night for widnes so i doubt hell be available for us.

Shacks is solid but Lawton created two tries , and I'm always looking for guys who are gonna put their hand up and do something to help win the game ... Create or score or produce a great play out of nowhere .I think he has that in him . I want four guys on my bench who can all come on and turn a game or turn the screw on an already good position with quality play . Honestly I think Shacks is good cover in this league , just my opinion . But if the big lads playing for Widnes its a non argument !! I'd happily take Shacks then , its a sign of strong competition . It's in no way a negative comparing him to the guys around him .

would you drop shacks before thacks and dowes? i wouldnt. in fact i would say thacks is the one who should miss out. if all 17 are available who beat dewsbury then i would probably only swap olstrum for forber and move callum to half. but you can guarantee connor will be back in.

I'd play shacks ahead of Dowes , I'd play Connor ahead of Forber . I'll go for ability and potential to do something now n again than steady all along . I would say that none of our issues are in the pack anyway really , we're well served . If Callum is back and Olstrum is fit where do they put Connor then ?

I'd drop dowes. I have to say he is disappointment of the season so far IMO.

hes been very poor, but he probably had his best game last time out. although he was still probably the worst out the 4 props.
