What do ya think ? Will Tierney go to fullback for extra attacking threat , or will Murphys solidity and continuity keep him there ? Or will Tierney move into the centre . I think he'll be a bit wasted on the wing myself

I think tierney will go full back with Murphy on the wing as he's played more games there than Lewis. Personally Murphy has earned our fullback jersey for the remainder of the year if he's with us, but I suppose you would play them in positions which there both used to. Looks like it will be mossop and stack centres, and you would expect duerden to come it at loose with rooney starting at 2nd row.

i think we should start with olstrum at loose,he defends better in my view, phil seams to like rooney as a prop so i think he will start on bench

thought olstrum was outstanding at prop last week, he never passes the ball so he might as well be at prop.

Yeah we're not really an offload team after contact are we . That was something different Thacks brought , and half the time they weren't expecting it ! Olstrum doesn't really need a number on his back does he , he just does the Olstrum rock hard Olstrum thing . You want him in your side every week

How about Lewis at 6 o 7 with Forber (has good hands and alot of pace),  moss and Duerden centres, hasnt he played there before? Luppy at 13, Callum off the bench to spell players? Stack could also swap with Duerden if things needed twicked.

i think the half backs performed good enough last week to hold there place. For some reason duerden hasn't been given a shot at centre, but saying that dan rooney is a quality centre who plays anywhere but there. Can't argue with any selection Phil makes though, he's got it spot on lately.

I think Tierney looks a potential handy 6 as well . Either 1 or 6 he's a real weapon in a side . Callum seems to be playing a more conservative game lately , as if PV has toned down his free spirit a bit? However many players may come through the doors , PV is the best signing we'll make .

Brett Carter was a handy 6 but he never gets a crack
