I'm guessing there is going to be a bit of rotation over the next few games so it anyone's guess what the team will be really. Could quite easily add Shacks, Carter, Calders and Rooney to that squad.

Maybe bring them in for the Sheffield game to rest a few for fev home

The way it's gaan at the moment we should target the Batley game , then rest / rotate for Sheffield , then aim for a big game v Fev . Your on a hiding to nowt in a midweek game at a top side three days after playing another one. I see Thacks n Carter in our top 17 and would take them to Batley if available , form or no form you want your xfactor players . Take DR to Sheffield if we have weary bodies .

callum
dowes
matty
coward

phillips
olstrum

walne

Looks good . I think we've seen by now that big Red ain't no strike centre . His hands and potency out wide are pretty poor really . He should be knocking trees over and bulldozing over the line but he isn't . He's got cover second row written on him if we retain him . I'm disappointed in him for his size and physique .

What's the chances of Town getting Lawton this weekend?  I'd guess slim after his hat-rick for Widnes at the weekend.

the difficult choice will be when rooney is back and fully fit, because for me he has to start over the other centres, and yesterday connor had about his best game for us and his goal kicking alone will win us matches

I'm hoping Rooney is the man because let's be honest , we don't have a strike centre at all . Connor and Rooney is looking the best when he's fit . Connors kicking gets him a spot , gee he belts a ball , and I still say he must be able to run with muscles on muscles . One day we will see him run in space. ! ( not run in space , you know what I mean )

i actually think donny are a harder team to play at the minute than batley. they have hit a great bit of form and on form are probably a top 6 side. but hope you csn pull it off and good luck.

We've more chance at Batley ... I don't think we'd win at Donny if we went every day !!! Listening to Kear and their fans , there's no doubt they're in a vulnerable place . Huge ask with our away form , but if you get a fast start and show intent from the off against a side that's a bit brittle mentally you never know . Doubts resurface , crowd gets on their back . Start is vital . Tough job but better now than a few weeks back ?

Recre your predictions lately regarding town haven't been so good ... We didn't lose 28-16 to dewsbury and Swinton wasn't a very tough game which could go either way , so hope your record keeps going .
