Great victory by Hull KR ūüėĄ Tony Smith really is masterminding something good over there.

Yes indeed. He's miles ahead of Lam.. And many other coaches. 

Considering Rovers were without their first choice halves it was a fantastic effort from them. Their defence was very tight when Wigan had about 7 repeat sets on their line and they then managed to hi

I reckon this might be a belter, Rervers' free flowing brand of RL might just upset the normally resilient Wiggun defence.

Having benefitted from a somewhat fortuitous refereeing decision last week, I wonder if the reverse may happen to Rervers on Friday evening.

I'll hopefully be watching and, as usual, will give my entirely unbiased view of things.

Pies 20 Rervers 16.

Hull KR must have made some progress to go from relegation fodder to a team that worries the Pies' faithful in the build up to a home game with them.

They may scrape it or not, but if Gildart and Marshall play then at least the team will be balanced for the first time this season.  Hopefully both will keep fit and sharp.

A sharp Gildart will be  boon for England.  But will Williams play before the world cup?

I struggle to see how any Superleague club can fit him in the cap midseason.

Yes, but would Williams play for less just to get fit and available for WC?  Even on a 6 months contract?

And I may be wrong (!!) but does not his first £150k not count for the cap?

Don't set me off Dav, I firmly believe their is some 'creative accountancy' going on at some clubs and has been going on for years, how high profile players and who I imagine would be top earners can be amassed at some clubs and the total wage bill is managed and kept under a very frugal cap limit amazes me.

Yes it would but who would they be swopping him for and immediately?

I know that Widdop payment reaches 5 figures a week basic, no bonuses in that.

No the opposite if he’s classed as a marquee player the first £150k counts on the cap and anything after that doesn’t. Plus they may only count part of the £150k as he is joining mid season.

Smith is a smart guy and knows how to beat Wigan... As long as he has players who are fit enough and skilled enough to do as they are told. 

Four legs good - two legs bad

and with williams don't forget the first 75 grand doesn't count as he is a home grown player should wigan wish to sign him.

Hull KR have announced that a player has tested positive and four others are now having to self isolate. Only one has played first grade from what I can fathom.

The game against Wigan will still go ahead.

Cue more pointless vitriol from the usual suspect about poorly run teams, blah, blah, blah.

So most 1st team squad is ok?  I'm thinking that the cup finalists must be a bit worried at the minute.

I hope Marshall is fit and well now, and suffers no more bad injuries. It would be such a shame if he had the same troubles as his dad. He was really showing his worth before his collapse. Goodness knows who will play at 1, though. With French probably gone for the year, we will really miss Hardaker.
