He isn't pulling your leg !!!!

 

I hope you are wrong although you usually seem very well informed.    If Carter is not fit then fair enough but if he is fit and not selected then it can only be  for a disciplinary reason because he is by far our best full-back and always puts his body on the line.

Im not 100% sure whether Carter is in the team but I'm fairly confident that you will see Briscoe and if Carter was to miss out it has nothing to with anything he has done that I'm 110% certain of

Well with carter not playing I would put miller full back hulme on one wing if he's available and Patrick on the over wing

If carter got injured I'd put Connor at fullback and leave miller on the wing

I'd be stunned by that . It would turn upside down everything we've said about DR . That's one position we don't need strengthening , and anyway there are others who would make way before Carter to fit someone in . I don't know , you can't comment or criticise until we know the facts and team officially ... Probably on Sunday afternoon.

That's why I said if he is fit and not playing it could only be for disciplinary reasons because I couldn't think that Charlo and Oggy would leave out Brett to play an experienced Widnes player coming back from injury and I hope that is not the case.   As you say we probably won't know until Sunday afternoon.

Well if so we'll all welcome him with open arms whatever our feelings ... But I'd still be absolutely staggered if it was for

Brett that's all !!! Shove him in for the injured Calders ok but like for like in his favoured position of full back ...errrr , no I can't buy that for any price and I just can't see it happening . Ok I may look an idiot on Sunday but I give the coaches ( disciplinary reasons apart ) more credit than that . Lets hope !

If we have dropped Brett in order to give Briscoe a game then it's absolutely scandalous and I'm disgusted with the club if its true (and Briscoe's tweet seems to confirm it). Even if they wanted to play Briscoe at FB they could have picked Brett at 6 but to leave him out completely is just totally bizarre.

Resting Carter for the haven game is the only answer I have but think that's clutching at straws and something I want to believe rather than the truth.

calm down, i very much doubt we would have dropped brett for briscoe, and even if we wanted to play briscoe then brett would play either at stand off or on the wing. remember brett never played last week either.when have we ever selected a dr over one of our own, never mind one of our best players. although wouldnt it be nice to be kept up to date, but were only the paying customer so who cares about us.

Right . We're basing this on a probable teasing tweet and putting 2 and 2 together and probably getting 5 . I still say our coaches

know the craic . We do have openings in our back line , and can fit him and Carter in !

If Briscoe is playing I would play carter on the wing with miller on the other Mossop and Morris in the centres

Carter is way to good or influential to play on the wing . Surely either Briscoe would play centre or if he was here to play custodian then Carter would play 6 ? And Connor would spend another week in the centres or wing . Patrick / Forber may be the unlucky losers in the shift around . Who knows , we'll turn up and see .No idea but looking forward to the game !

If this is the case a current SL player , a well known league figure and former international is playing at DP on Sunday .

The club and local media should fanfare it and use this this to get more fans in as this is something up here .

Should be but u just hope it isn't at carters expense because he is class and always a miss to me when not in the team

Up until now, under this stupid dual registered system, we have been able to hold the moral high ground for doing it properly, the way it was first intended, but if we are leaving one of our top players out to give an experienced SL player game time then we have just lost that.   I don't think any Town fans are going to go as far as some at other clubs saying they wont be attending but we should register our disgust, if, this is what is happening.

Certainly clarification is needed Keith , but I just find it hard to swallow . Someone out for Briscoe to improve us , but not Brett .

I give our guys more marbles than that . I'll hang fire for some facts before my wools coming off! Staggered would still be my opinion , but communication kills ignorance .

We'll wear it if we're comfy in the table come the pointy end of the season and any guys we get have had an impact.

I'm gonna hold my water until we get official word on this one. Just hope we get somebody to say something before things start spinning out of kilter.
