  1. Tall and quite lean looks like he’ll fill out more.
  2. Good stuff. I saw him at my gym earlier….he’s a big lad!
  3. Leilua Springer Hardcastle For what it’s worth I thought that when Locky came on towards the end of the first half and actually started tackling legs it slowed down their off loads and made a difference.
  4. Put hardcastle to his most effective position of centre and drop broadbent out of the 17.
  5. Great guy is Luke clearly loves the club. Wouldn’t be in my 17 when everyone is fit but it’s credit to him that he’s prepared to stay knowing he’s unlikely to be first choice. He could easily move on and play every week. He’s a great clubman if that phrase still exists!
  6. Interesting comments from Mac about Cuthbertson and how he sees him offering another dimension to our attack. I think we might find that he’s part of the play off 17.
  7. For me a bit light in the pack with the starting 13 but very strong bench. I think we’ll be in the arm wrestle for a while but pull away later on. Although I’m usually wrong!
  8. It was well awkward how Connor was asked about his plans live on the microphone with George saying Newcastle have announced they are going back to part time as though that was the only reason he’s staying. It may well be the reason but it didn’t give Connor much of a build up to the announcement in front of the fans!
  9. We need to mix it up in the last two league games and get as many players with game time under their belt as we can so we have as many fit players as possible to choose from in the play offs. Stating the obvious I know. Would be good to get Bussey and Pickersgill on the pitch.
  10. Jones Moors Springer special mention for Hardcastle who got through a huge amount of work for 80 mins in the second row.
  11. Agreed he was top class today. Imperious support play. Now we just need a coach who’ll give him more minutes.
  12. Agreed and I’ve said this a few times. Smith is good but not good enough to unpick Leigh’s defence. Ford and Jacks might possibly be.
  13. Most of my friends are Wake fans and he’s always the butt of their jokes. I watched a Fev centre swat him off to score in pre season. When I see him, granted only on sky he looks small and ineffectual. Only opinions of course.
  14. He’s better than Arona everyday of the week.
  15. Ford Moors Hardcastle (but playing him at centre gets us closer to having the size we need across the park to challenge Leigh. None of their big centres would get much change from Josh so wrong position for me)
  16. He’s probably had enough of 12 minute cameo appearances.
  17. Eseh Jones Springer Ford offers us another dimension especially on the short side. For me when Jacks is fit he partners Ford at half back and Smith doesn’t make the 17 unless covering at hooker.
  18. Mac was more candid in his post match interview talking about his Bradford team in his playing days who beat teams with physicality but occasionally when a team were good enough to front up they had no plan B. I think he was saying that’s the way to beat Leigh but it’s easier said than done. There were elements of us trying to do that yesterday. So if we get to the grand final I think that will be his tactic. Try to disrupt their dominance and see if they are one trick ponies. I’m not sure if I’m assured by that insight or not. Even with a fully fit squad I’m not sure we could do that.
  19. Eventful first half but there’s a predictable pattern to the game that suggests an easy Leigh win.
  20. He’s clearly tried to pick the biggest possible 17 he can. Not sure about starting two hookers. He should start with another middle. I fear it won’t matter anyway and it could be a bit of a blow out score.
  21. Big announcement coming according to one of the Ultras on Facebook.
  22. I always remember Divet charging into a gap out wide, I think at home to Wigan, waving his hands in the air screaming for the ball…it eventually came to him and he cantered over.
