I don't think we can predict a team until we know who Wigan are releasing to is. Got a feeling we might get a big name on sunday

Keighley paid Wath Brow a tremendous compliment last Saturday by fielding their strongest available team. Paul March was suspended and will be next weekend against Town. They are a very useful unit and Town will need to be at their best to take the points. Another must win match.

My guess at the probable team to face Town is:

(1)1.James Craven (Dewsbury)
(2) 2.Richie Barnett
(3) 19.Danny Lawton (or 3 Elliott Cosgrove)
(4) 22.Daley Williams ( or 3 Elliott Cosgrove)
(5) 5.Paul White,
(6) 6.Danny Jones
(7) 7.Paul Handforth (Halifax)
(8) 8.Andy Shickell
(9) ? Luke Haigh (Hunslet), (in for injured Feather)
(10) 10.Sean Hesketh
(11) 11.Josh Lynam
(12) 12.Brendan Rawlins
(13) 13.Ash Lindsay (Batley)

Interchanges:
Prop - 16.Jode Sheriffe
Prop - 18.Neil Cherryholme
Hooker - 27.Jack Lee (Featherstone)
25.Lewis Graham (Huddersfield), (or 32. Ross Peltier)

These games are mega - huge this year . Must win games . I'll take all the help Wigan can offer if they're standout players at this level who improve us . Hopkins and Tierney to start with please . I don't think Wigan really know their 17 from one week to the next , he's really mixing it up , so I guess we'll see late in the week

Not too late David, Wigan play on Thursday night this week so their squad will be known late on Tuesday.

Some good recruits in key spots , good experience and a strong looking unit . At least if Feather isn't playing he can't scoot over from dummy half for the ten millionth time

Hopefully get that prop back. Last 2 wins should boost the confidence and more time with the new coach.

Is Brett C as well?   He's talking on Twitter about being in a hospital ward!!!!!


I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

Just a thought, if both Brett and Lewis are injured/unavailable this weekend, I'm sure the very talented Ryan Hampshire would benefit from Championship match experience (turned out for the U 19 Wigan team last Sunday).

Hampshire is a better fullback than Lewis, and if possible he would be my 1st choice to get up here, and possible move Lewis to the wing. Can't see carter playing with his hand.

IF, Carter, Tierney and Miller are out injured and we can't get Hampshire, who will play full-back?    Young Murphy is shown as a full-back on his Wigan profile!!!!
