  5. Head Coach Craig Lingard has announced his 21 man squad to face the Batley Bulldogs this Sunday. The game, to be played at the Bulldogs Fox’s Biscuits Stadium, will again see Linners rotate his side as he looks to keep his squad match fit whilst giving everyone gametime ahead of the new campaign. Andy Gabriel returns to the squad after missing out against Whitehaven due to work commitments with Scott Law, Nathan Conroy and young full-back Harry Aaronson also brought back into the side. Sean Hesketh is amongst those rested this Sunday as he, along with Matthew Bailey, Nathan Kitson and Lewis Davey are not selected for the trip to Mount Pleasant. On the injury front Danny Lawton (Ribs) joins Will Milner (Shoulder), James Pickering (Hamstring) and Ben Sagar (Hamstring) on the sidelines whilst new signing Eze Harper is unavailable for selection for this Sunday’s game following his arrival from the Leigh Centurions. This Sunday also comes too soon for Fran Welsh as he continues to return to fitness following an ankle operation in pre-season. SQUAD TO FACE BATLEY BULLDOGS: 1 – Harry Aaronson 2 – Andy Gabriel 3 – Josh Casey 5 – Davey Dixon 7 – Matty Beharrell 8 – Scott Law 9 – James Feather 11 – Josh Lynam 12 – Brendon Rawlins 13 – Mike Emmett 14 – Adam Brook 15 – Neil Cherryholme 17 – Nathan Conroy 18 – Josh Tonks 21 – Emmerson Whittel 22 – Ritchie Hawkyard 24 – Liam Darville 26 – Vinny Finigan 29 – Brad Nicholson 31 – Callum Dunne 32 – Adam Ryder
  6. Phil , Matt Diskin is , I think , the only rookie coach in the championship , and he hasn't even picked his first competitive 17 yet , let's give him a chance , other sides have coaches of varying experience , including these 2 , 18 months ago Tim Sheens was in his seventh year as Australia's coach and Geoff Toovey was in his 4th season as Manly's coach, having already taken them to a Grand Final. In 2017 they will both be taking the big step up to the Kingstone Press Championship.
