i dont think you can pick off performances and include dowes, hes done very little in a town shirt, and the likes of walne and leuluai looked really good last week. this all depends on actons return.

We were told resting Acton was just precautionary so I would hope to see him play this Sunday, we've done well without him, but he could make all the difference. I would be very confident of winning if he plays.

Yes your right, he has shown he is that important . He turns games . Be good to see him maintaining a flying start rather than having to though !!!

I'm the eternal optimist! At the moment Walne is a perfect partner for Stack (in the absence of Phillips) and we don't know if Leuluai is available yet. I am certain that after a week off we will start to see the real Dowes.

I'd be hoping to extend Walnes loan if possible . Even with Brett back he has the physique and strength to cover middle and flank forward , and he has that rare edge of the seat explosive running style .

It also means we can take Brett and stack off for a breather and replace them with a guy who will give us as much impact as they do be worth keeping until the end of the season

Can't argue with that team, probably what I would go for. Only talking point there would be no Forber, he's probably done enough to be in there again.

I agree but think he will be again be a victim of the need to play Lupton and Connor somewhere in the 17

Just can,t see how we can leave FORBER OR SHACKLEY out , to me CONNOR as done nothing for him to go in front of FORBER on present form,and to bring in a DR man to take SHACK,S place to me no??

On Sundays evidence leuleui offers far more to the team than Shackley the dual reg things irrelevant we need the best team possible on the field do agree on Connor but Ill be shocked if he isn't picked in all fairness given that he's been in the team since his arrival

So what you are saying GILLMEITER that it five first team come available from WIDNES we should drop our lads and play the dual reg to make our team stronger??? IF players are injured by all means but lets not start to drop our lads to put in dual reg that his just my opinion.

thats not what hes saying at all, but leuluai has been made available for quite a few weeks now so you would imagine he will be available for a good couple of games in the future as well and he had a stormer on sunday. its not like he would be getting replaced for a one off week. what your saying though abu is that if your a local lad you should be untouchable and never dropped for someone in better form which is crazy. we dont have enough lads fit to swap and change with our own so bringing in the likes of mcgraff is our only way of keeping the town players on there toes.

Exactly if guys like Leuleui are available on an extended basis then we should be making the most of it we don't need the disharmony of dropping players for guys playing one off games for the benefit of the superleague team ala briers at Swinton but if we have a quality player available who can give us a regular run of games why not we will need them at some point anyway as injuries etc kick in

Likes of magraff may even end up a Workington player in the future!!

And you know that i am not saying a local lad should not be dropped for some one in better form,if as you say a dr player is available for some weeks good,but i think the way it works we don,t know from week to week what players are free,If as you say he as bean available for a few weeks lets have him on loan.

The Doncaster Free Press today says: Coach Tony Miller is hoping that familiarity does not breed contempt when his Doncaster Dons side travel to Workington this weekend. The Dons beat Workington 26-4 in their last meeting back in February, and also faced the Cumbrian-based side three times in 2012 in Championship One competition. Miller admits that both sides will know what to expect from each other, and told this newspaper: “The side which makes the least errors on the day will probably come away with the three points. It's as simple as that."

Nice to see that the Barrow Forum have faith in Town. In their "Tipping Competition Round 18", so far the predictions all favour a win for Town against Doncaster. Early days, but they predict: 30-18, 32-20, 28-12, 32-18 and 26-20.

It would be nice if we could reciprocate but unfortunately I can't see past a Haven win by about 10.

The Forum is being realistic and most agree with you Keith, predicting a defeat for Barrow ranging from 10 to 16 points.

If we play to our potential then the Barrow fans could be right, we need an 80 minute performance out of the boys. I would like to see Forber getting another game after last weeks great performance, his goal kicking could be vital if its close. I would start with connor on the bench. Any news on Jamie Acton ?

It is not a certainty that Leuluai will be available for us this Sunday or in the future unless a special arrangement (other than just DR) is made between the clubs. He is a regular member of the Widnes 19 man squad having been named in 12 squads this season out of 16.

Leuleui's defence was weak - shacks gave 100% has akways

Any examples of this weak defence I can't remember him being at fault for any tries the Hawks scored?
