3 posts in this topic

Hi all, looking forward to sundays game, last time we came lsv we got hammered lol hoping that wont happen again we have a decent team this season under stanley gene and started with a 47-28 win against oxford on sunday, this will be a very tough game for us, what kind of team are you guys likely to field? Full strength? Should be a good game and closer than last time we played you lol

I am sure it will be closer than last but most of all I hope for a good day out.

With only around 20 players in the squad then we do note have the luxury of "weakening" the team too much!

We have been playing 3 Warrington dr players ( penny, Burke and Dwyer) and I guess they will not play so as not to be cup tied. Therefore along with any injuries the team will pick itself.

That said, we only had one pre season friendly so the team need to get playing together as much as possible. 5 defeats so far this season so looking to change that on Sunday. Expect a team something like:

R hawkyard

Worthington

Nanyn

Watkins

Walker

2 halves from Fishwick/bowman/Watson

Hooker - Ackers

4 props from Menzies, cooper, Johnson, Thomas, morrison

D hawkyard

D halliwell

Loose - Barlow or brown

Suspect Watson might start on the bench so he can have a good look at the team from the sidelines.

Something around -
