If Walsh isn't back then we'll presumably go with Hohaia and Wilkin in the halves, which might not strike too much fear into Wakefield. Amor's also going to be a big loss for us. I'm very surprised that he's been given a two game ban. I'll be watching very closely for other crusher tackles and the bans which are handed out for them this season.
Wakefield don't look bad to me. I think we'll get the points in a tough game.
Sadly it would appear that, if reports elsewhere are true, it's going to be Wello and Wilkin in the halves.
If that does turn out to be the case then Cunningham has a problem. He clearly has a problem with Hohaia as he's not playing him no matter how knackered Robes is or how much we need someone who can actually play in the halves. But aside from that if Cunningham opts for his buddy Wello instead of someone who helped us to get to a GF and top spot last season then he has a problem as a coach and we are going to have a problem with him as our coach. It's bad enough that he leaves players on the bench until the last 15 minutes and drops a player who gave a MoM performance last week for someone who was terrible agains the Souths (Turner). It's also a problem that Cunningham has said to the press that he thinks Wilkin looks like a half these days.
Too many old friends on the coaching staff methinks, and not enough experience in our head coach.
