Match Thread: Championship Round 10, Dewsbury v Featherstone Rovers v Bradford Sunday-20th-June-2021


Recommended Posts

Eight out of eight with an excellent performance v Bradford.

Now we have to face Dewsbury.

Last time I went there it was nip and tuck and a late Dane Chisholm drop goal won an incredibly tight match.

Injury List

Unfortunately, it appears that Day and Minns both picked up injuries. What wretched luck those two lads are having, and the club in general.

From the 16 players who didn't play against Bradford, we had:

1 suspended: Blackmore

6 injured: Chisholm (foot), Bussey (ankle), Ferres (leg), Harrison (foot), Ferguson (hamstring), Welham (Covid related?).

9 Not selected: Luke Cooper. And from the younger lads, McConnell, Doyle, Spence, Beckett, Sweeting, Summer, Sheriff, Whitton.

 

So perhaps Cooper and Doyle for Minns and Day, with a little reshuffling.

Unless of course, any injured player is ready to return.......

Be good to get to Dewsbury on Sunday, always a good away day. Shame such a great win last week had to come at the expense of a few more injuries. Gutting in particular to see Brad helped off give

If Fev and Toulouse both lose the same number of games this year the “Difference Percentage” will never come into play. This is because Fev will have played more games than Toulouse and therefore our

Dewsbury stood toe to toe for the first twenty odd minutes and had two tries disallowed and maybe rightly so who knows?. The point is they made some chances and never looked like conceding 68 at that

Yes Mark, Your last sentence"unless of course, any injured player is ready to return...." is very true. It would be  helpful if the club gave us a bit of an update on the injury situation as  a lot of the speccies are getting anxious and asking when will it get better ???

Totally agree. The club has had a large turnover in staff in 2021 and it seems to have affected their communication with the fans among other things.

Some tough fixtures coming up in July before the big one against Toulouse on 1st August, I sincerely hope we have a good few back by then?

When is Blackmore's suspension up? Surely it can't be long now?

I think his suspension started some time after his injury issues, he was banned for 10 weeks and it only started on May 24 so I make it that he won't be back until the first week of August.

Mark, in his RoversTV interview with Pete, Minnsy said he'd be ready to again this weekend. We'll have to wait ands see.

Well, that would be good news.

It sounds like he's been playing with an injury all season.

You've got to be tough to play this game.

  He was down injured in the first half but seemed to run it off.

Shame such a great win last week had to come at the expense of a few more injuries. Gutting in particular to see Brad helped off given how hard he'd worked and how well he was going, it's terrible luck for the lad if he's picked up another longer term problem. Best wishes to him, and hope to see him back in action soon.

21 man squad announced this afternoon.

I assume we'll have three loanees in there. Shades of the old days, but we've a long injury list.

Will Minns be fit? Any returnees from last week's list?

With the new signing MLP I wonder if  we will  be taking the opportunity to rest Thomas M  ankle

It might be wise. The season is long.

What are you thinking? Jagger at FB, newby and Gale down the flanks with Hally and Hardcase at centre?

That might well be what happens. The other possibility is that we have already been told that Hull KR want Dagger back next week with Quinlan expected to be in the Combined nations squad, so Whiteley's loan is designed to help us with that with Hall reverting to full back.

That may be the reason PH but why this week and not next tells me were going to play him sunday if he doesn't there's going to be floods of tears at the LNER according to York fans they are crying out for a winger apparently big signing BJB not cutting the mustard😭

   Pleased  Minn's   is having a week off to recover depending on how bad it is maybe another week off as well against Newcasile home so he is fit for Widnes away game.Any news on Welham?.or is he not bothered.Moors was quiet against Bradford was he carrying an injury noticed in the second half he took up the right outside centre position and didn't do much tackling in the middle.

Yes, updates on the injury situation would be helpful, instead of this secret society attitude of the club.

Intersting point PH but for me with James being out for a few weeks  I can't see the point of naming him  in 21 if he's not going to be on the bench might as well  as named Thomas M and then left HIM out of 17

 Looking at list would have thought Luke C and three young lads all miss out

Might be dependent on captain's run tomorrow. We named Bussey in the squad for the Halifax game the week after he got his injury but he didn't play and hasn't made the squad since. Sometimes they just don't know if a player is going to be ready or not when they name the squad.

That said Webbo did say last week that Harrison might be ready for this weekend's game.
