Faal at centre for me, big lad. No room for Mullaley or Johnson? It's not a question of just picking a team, it's picking a team to win the particular match you're heading into, and I think we need our biggest and most experienced team out at Leigh to get off to a good start. As we know a) they've recruited enormously and B) expect us to be a roll-over according to their site, so we have to show that we can match them without spending all that money and that we won't roll over. JK will know all this and have it all taken into consideration when he puts his team out. Never yet have we rolled over, not even against SL teams in cupties, so no reason to think we will on Sunday. So, we haven't won at Leigh since the very first Premier Sports match, no reason for cockiness on their part, they'll know they've had a game.

Mull hasn't played for us pre season but i can see young aspinall or mason been called up both big lads like gledhill and brennan i'm glad i'm not coach because jk has got the toughest job picking 17 players to go do the job on them..

Nicholson is a must. All players want to play their old team. Look at leatherbarrow v cougars.

Look at tigers blistering performance against us sunday. Erm

I'd go with the biggest/hardest pack I could.

 

If the weather is like today, it will be a forward battle up the middle, with very little guile and subtlety so best to try and wear them down.

 

01. Greenwood

02. Blackmore

03. Bretherton

04. Aspinall

05. Campbell

06. Connor 

07. Leatherbarrow

08. Smith

09. Leak

10. Rowe

11. Davies

12. Scott

13. Applegarth

 

14. Brennan

15. Gledhill

16. Johnson

17. Nicholson if fit or Blake if not

I understood that Giants DR's were to be with us for the season? Anyone who has read my previous rantings about DR will know that I was totally against it at the beginning, always quoting the way Swinton and Hunslet especially had really bastardised the system. However, now the restructuring mess has hit the fan, I feel that it's of the greatest importance that we turn out the strongest team possible each week to maximise our chances of hitting the required target. If that means having to play the allowed 5 Dr's every week then we should do it,like it or not, - let's face it, they're DR's because they're a cut above the rest of the squad we can afford to assemble, if they weren't then they wouldn't be signed with The Giants in the first place, they'd be fighting to ply their trade with either ourselves or fellow championship clubs. I know this could jeopardise the positions of those of our own registered players, who, like Potter and Scott last term, might ask to move on, but I feel it's a chance JK has to take. Players like Mullaley, Fairbank (who also had a first team run at Broncos?) and Johnson have put in impressive performances at Giants in SL so no reason why an extended run in our team shouldn't pay well. In the Boxing Day game, those who played in the backs also showed great promise.

Larne patrick is out after wigan game last week. The giants forward twisted his knee. Probably a dislocation and tear so thats one young forward moving up the pecking order.
