With Fairbanks injured, will JK move Brev back into the pack and give Danny a final match?

Danny is a solid defender and I'd be happy for him to be involved.

I think Doc M is simply painting a possible scenario, Phil......

JK has to put his strongest side out thats available... no room for sentiment with it been the final and no Danny hasn't let us down this season

I can`t see it. It would be a risk and I think he will go for Faal, although I wouldn`t be surprised to see him pick another forward.

 

Is Applegarth definitely out? and is Josh Johnson fit and available?

I think I read that JK would not risk playing Applegarth this season as he was not fit enough. I would go for the best defender, which to me means leave Bretherton where he is and if we are short of forwards then play Faal as a running forward. I know this seems to mean they play in each others position but I believe it is using their strengths in the most effective positions.

 

Of course I am sure Kear knows what he wants and who can do the best job.

Faal started out as a second row - I always thought it was his best position.
