Can only see a Hooker on my bench to interchange with Hood? Dave March is the captain.

pleased people are going for Ansell at scrum half. For me Watson at full back, and must be Pryce o the wing.-- Hood and Haigh as the hookers.

Pryce has not done anything yet to prove he should get preference and I believe is in his late 30's. Mapals can score tries if given the ball

On the evidence ive seen so far this season Lee Mapels would be one of the 1st names id pick and thats coming from someone who thought he was a bit of a liability last season.Always gains ground scores tries and id back him to go round most full backs if put in the clear.

Sunley for me. Great game yesterday

To be honest, no matter how good the Leeds players are, I wish we could have got some big forwards instead of duplicating positions that look ok already. I hope we play OUR players first with possibly Hood coming in. We have three full backs and three wingers before Watson and Sunley so they probably wont get much game time. Also, hasn't one club, dual registered the entire squad from one super league club? Shouldn't we do that if it's allowed and Swinton I believe have 5 D.R.'s.

In an ideal world im sure Baz would have got 3 props a top class scrum half, but this isn't the case. Leeds either dont have these players or feel they will be involved in their 17 more often than not and would not have chance to play for us.

I totally disagree with clubs dual registering ALL players at a club, in my opinion it makes a mockery of the set up and sends out the wrong message, We had a lot of negative comments from our supporters over the Leeds link up, which we always said would be 4 players on season long dual reg. and that's what we have done, our fans know all the detals, we have 4 players and any of them 4 players could potential play for us on any given weekend in 2013. We are all totally clear about where we are, who the players are and where we stand.

Now lets take Dewsbury who have dual reg ALL the Bulls squad, now there fans are totally in the dark of who may be in their team one Sunday to the next it could be anyone, it could be 5 players it could be 1 or 3, the following week it could be a different set of 5 players, it could be a star player coming back from injury, that is ridiculous in my opinion and can only be bad for them. I thought this set up is exactly what our supporters DIDN'T WANT?

There will be an important announcement tomorrow regarding the 4 dual reg players.

It said in the yorkshire post it wasnt the case that Sunley was duel registered with the Hawks Gaz but i too think its a shame either Moore or atchurch couldnt be dual reg at some time we seem short of size in the forwards.

In deed it did ,and we will be making an official statement on that tomorrow Colin.

Whos to say that might not be an option as the season progresses, it all depends on the circumstances, a lots of ifs and buts in this process. But we have 30 players and 4 dual reg as it stands is so lets get behind which ever 17 Baz chooses to start on Sunday, back the club and the lads in our famous shirt.

Does anyone know if the Leeds Prop Jordan Baldwinson is any relation to Hunslet's Billy Baldwinson in the sixties?

He is also a Hunslet Warriors product.

Looks ok going forward, not too sure yet about his defence, especially high balls and balls kicked low towards him. Having said that he has improved a lot since he first joined hunset. He has only scored in one match against hunslet allstars, but hopefully he can improve with time and become a danger to other defences.
