I always thought the whole purpose of a 'squad' was to cover injuries like we have at the minute. I wonder what the likes of Cook,Canterbury,Clough etc think about tonight's announcement.
I presume that Mr Bailey won't be available next week vs Workington in the Challenge Cup as Brian McDermott won't want him to be cup tied. If no one recovers from injury over the next week or so, we'll have to call on one our 'fringe' players who hasn't had any game time since the end of January to fill a spot left by the DR guys.
In my opinion next weeks game against Workington is more important than this week. If we lost to London it wouldn't be the end of the world, I'm convinced we'll still make the play offs and be around the top of the league come the end of the season but a win against Workington and a favourable draw in the next round could give the club a nice little earner.
Why not give the likes of Cook and Canterbury a game this week, giving them a chance to prove themselves as well a bit of match fitness in case they are needed the week after.
