Gazmeister

Hunslet v Wigan (I mean Leigh)

54 posts in this topic

So who is optimistic about Sundays game? Silly as it sounds I fancy a cheeky little win for us this week. They won against Sheffield yes, but they have yo look interested when visiting us.

Usually when a team plays in a big game they tend to go off the boil the following week against lesser opposition.

Anyway, I feel optimistic and here is my team selection for Sunday.

Watson

Maples

Keinhorst/Foster/Normington

Well I am

Kain

McShane

Helliwell

Yates

Tebb

Davies

Oakes

Menzies

Haughey

Hood

Coyle

Forward 1

Forward 2 (not sure who is fit)

To be honest Gaz , a bonus point would be great on Sunday. I don't expect any more, as Leigh don't loose to anyone below them.Credit to them for that.

 

Just another point though, Leigh pretend not to Dual Reg , and seem to get away with it, only poor old Swinton and us get all the blame for the dual reg.

Remember Barrow had more Dual reg than us last Sunday, Leigh will more than likely have more D/R than us Sunday. 

But lets not mention that, only Huns and Swinton are to blame for the Dual Reg acording to all the other teams supporters in our league.

There is a subtle difference to DR and the old loan system.

I understand that as fans we want our team to do well.

Hunslet and Barrow have chosen to go down different routes. Hunslet decided they would go down the DR route, it's obvious that it has not ( so far) proved beneficial. It might do if the system keeps you from being relegated. Whatever its pretty clear that only the Superleague clubs win with DR. They get to cut back on their young player development but still have an "A" team to nurture young players and have somewhere for experienced players to get back to fitness. That cannot do much for the spirit in the changing room when players who partly rely on a bit of extra income see themselves dropped for an incoming "Star".

We will probably only have Spencer on dual reg which we have had most of the season very rarely had more than 2 maybe three in any one game and that was when we had loads out injured and they have been under 23's.

 

Looking forward to the game tomorrow we are going into Leeds for a few drinks before. Good luck for the rest of the season, not tomorrow though LOL.

hopefully looking forward to the lad making some contribution either off the bench or starting the game and ending his atrocious run of injuries and keeping the teams chances of avoiding relegation a faint possibility

Ian no need to explain because the ignorant folks choose not to listen, its a Yarkshire trait.

Is it a joke what I have heard about squad selection.

March at Hooker. Watson dropped. As Tebb is on bench is Hood dropped too? Clough keeps his place after last weeks performance?

Wellham on bench.

Thought we had a chance of winning this. Bit late in the day of changing everything around.

when you suggest Menzies at 2nd row not sure you can call anyone else's team selection a joke :P

why? Menzies is no doubt a good prop but mobility is not in his skill set

Kainy at fullback, March at hooker, Mapals on the wing, Grimmer and Mcshane at halfback, Yates back & Keinhorst in the centre.

 

It looks like last weeks performance wasn't taken lightly by the coach, many changes for today. Good luck to all the lads in the 17!

What a flat boring game that was today. Each team just wanting to play their sets out and to see what came of it. Then..... We did what we always do, start to be flash and concede penaltys in our own 20. Great to get the bonus point but Leigh really just went through the motions and were not that interested really. In fact they looked tired.

Thought Kain had a good first half then ballsed it up in the second half and cost us a silly try plus one we got away with.

Maples had a good game again as did Yates. Thought Normington looked stronger this week too. Mcshanes kicking was great but he went missing for 30 minutes in the second half. I thought he had gone off but he hadn't.

We missed a proper Hooking combination and we should have had Mcshane at hooker with Tebb, and brought Helliwell in.

If your dropping Watson from full back he is too good not to play on the wing. Pryce should be left out next week. Offers very little.
