Only change (injuries and dual reg availability not withstanding) will be Mullally in for Walmsley IMO. We desperately need four props in the XVII against a huge Leigh pack. Hirst's form seems to have picked up since our run of defeats.
There's also the possibility that Kear may decide that we need an extra forward on the bench. In that case, I'd wager that he'll leave out Hemingway in favour of Fairbank.

Exactly what I would do. Only change would be Mullaly for Walmesley. You maybe right about Hemingway but I would keep him on the bench because I do think he offers something extra to Moore.

Easiest one of the season. He was awesome today.

 

The new Adrian Vowles! The resemblance is uncanny - playing wise that is.

Totally disagree about faal and so was most of 9 hole wanting him off and it just shows what we saw coz he was taken off


I doubt that JK listens to the nine oil when making his interchanges! For what it's worth I agree with the Terminator on Faal's contribution. We haven't seen the best of him yet.

Ive watched him since he was at dewsbury, and all season here except for injurys, how long does it take for a player to show us his best? Retirement age?

Again I disagree. If he plays a blinder in next weeks match, no-one will complain. Perhaps we see things a little differently. Your comment about his injuries is interesting as it has meant that he has not played as often as he might have done. If he had played every week I am sure he would have been outstanding. I would have him in my team every week.

Faal was a class above most at Dewsbury, allied with his partner, who unfortunately we couldn't keep. He was kept waiting a while to get into the team, then picked up the injury, so he never really got started. He hasn't played any worse than a couple of others who probably haven't been at their best this season,and his advantage is that if Maun does retire and with Walton leaving he's bound to be first choice next year which will do his confidence no end of good. Regarding Dr men coming in; with the rumour that Hirst and Walmsley are off, then I'd replace them and probably, sadly, leave Lindsay out as well and maybe Bretherton, which again would be a shame as I've always liked him, he's a good footballer and has a good head for a forward. They will obviously be mumblings from other teams if we do stack up with Dr's, and i must admit I'm no great fan of the system, but it's there, like it or lump it, and every other team had the same chance to take advantage or not as they chose. At least we haven't abused it like 2 other teams I might mention, and isn't it strange that in those 2 cases it didn't do them any good at all, as they were both in the relegation pot right to the end. Shame York had to go, would rather have them in the division than Warrswinton.

Whichever club Faal has turned out for, he has always run out looking like Mr Bump - so much so I'm surprised they haven't named a hospital wing after him.

That said, he is a player who would, I reckon, have been a SL regular but for his injury problems.
