Two general pieces of information:

Match Officials for Batley.

Ref: G Stokes

Touch J: G Evans

Touch J: M Kidd

Reserve: R Dolan

M Com: T Randerson

Last season Keith T posted the RFL Town Home and Away strip requirements for each round. I thought it would be useful to continue the tradition especially when the Batley match requires Town to wear their home strip rather than the normal away colours.

Their alternative strip ( their away strip ) will only be worn at the following 8 league matches.

Round

4 BARROW V WORKINGTON

8 WHITEHAVEN V WORKINGTON

10 ROCHDALE V WORKINGTON

11 FEATHERSTONE V WORKINGTON

15 HALIFAX RLFC V WORKINGTON

17 SWINTON V WORKINGTON

19 KEIGHLEY V WORKINGTON

23 DONCASTER RLFC V WORKINGTON

Miller out with knee injury - hopefully just a knock as it was an impact injury . Fingers crossed for a bit of luck with that one . It's always the most important players isn't it !

Ideally Mossop but don't know if he's right yet? I don't like having our most potent players on the wing , not in our team , if it's not their set spot like Eliot . We need Brett and Tierney and the like in the game . We're not blessed with game breakers, we need them getting the ball . We could be getting near shifting Lupton to 13 , moving Brett to 6 , Tierney to 1 and having Olstrum covering Matty and Lupton on the bench . He'd still play long minutes and can batter tiring defences . Dunno. That gives you four playmakers including Tierney and maybe more creativity ? You're right though , I don't think we'll do much out of the box like that . We tend not to .

They won't have Mullally on Sunday as he's just signed for Bradford on a months loan

Super League loaning to Super League ... Should not be allowed . What an indictment on the league . Not very super really.

I wonder what the plan is with Rooney in the medium term ? He seemed to be playing as sort of an auxiliary prop on Sunday , doing hard yards and defending in the middle . I think it'll be a shame if we turn him into a battering ram ( with and without the ball !) so early in his career . We saw literally a few weeks of him out wide before his injury .. Surely he's got a shelflife as an edge player still ?

Why? Premier league clubs loan to each other.

I just don't think it's right or is a good look for the game . They all get resources and time to build a squad . But you end up with some feeding off scraps from the stronger sides . Just my opinion . No real indepth reasoning . If they're built on such shaky ground there's something wrong somewhere .

Our best wing options are Miller and Tierney but on sunday I think we need experience and defensive solidity to stay in the contest and hope Batley get jittery thats why I would go with Jason over Haney

Was funny on Sunday when big Red stuck one arm out on his own line to try and intercept , and I said , shame he would have gone 100 and scored if he'd taken it ... And a wag replied ' nah he'd have got cramp on halfway !'

It will be very interesting to see what team is selected this week and how they play.    I presume the team will be picked by Luppy and Butch so there could be a few surprises, maybe?    Batley are very well off in the forwards but not so well off in the backs and it was in the backs where Leigh ran riot against them last week, apparently.    We have the element of surprise this week as they will not know how we will line up or play either.   It is a game that not many would have us down for a win, even though we won there in the league last year, so I would go for it and play an expansive sort of game.

Reporter Andy Hunt is retweeted on the Batley Twitter page as stating:

"Craig Barker & Peter Lupton take charge v @BatleyRLFC on Sunday."

Common sense says, that is the probable short-term solution, however, does anyone know if that has been officially announced?
