I'd definitley have Craven in and allow matty and callum to spell each other at 9 as its been a tough week.

Very much doubt Danny will be available this weekend. Dannys not been training as his wife is in hospital and she's 7 month pregnant. Flynn and Hulme are up this weekend

We can carry that one , we desperately need to find some fizz in attack , so any new blood and rearrangement is worth a go . Will Rooney slot back in there , especially if Olstrums back .

Olstrom won't be in - he won't have trained all week - that's if he's back from the white isle - Jesus - some commitment at this club

He's a big miss , 50 tackles a game and 20 carries is hard to replace . We have no other natural 13 , if he's back I think an exception must be made .

There seems to have been a number of holidays during this important season
Yes I know the players have a life too? but as semi pros?? Just my opinion.

One downside of the summer season.....the wife/partner and kids are wanting to go on holiday in July/August rather than December/Jan.
Weekend Stag do's for family and best mates may have to take priority at some point. You may be invited to 3 in a year but only go to one because of the rugby. In days gone by it was a stag night rather than a week/weekend.

No we don't just to clear that up for you lol. They have to book weddings etc for after the season ends. Obviously they will get compasionate leave etc or to sort themselves out like raynor did but other than that no they don't.Unless the club says they can but it hasn't happened for a long time now.

Well and fingers crossed if we get into the playoffs it aint been bad on the scale of things, lads being injured long term, lads going on holiday or having to work and others cars breaking down, not been bad at all, definitely gonna win the league next season

i think rooney is playing as hes training this morning. i think hulme will be on the wing with rooney at centre as carter is injured so ell will be at full back. unless briscoe is back this week.

isnt he on a season long loan. whats the point in getting a loan player who can then be recalled at anytime.bit of a joke really.

Ridiculous, does that mean if we get a few injuries and are down to the bare bones Salford can still decide they want him leaving us up the creek?

Thought loan deals had to be a set period of time (min 1 month?) without recall?
If Salford can recall at any time then its no better than DR really.
