I'm still very worried about those French fellas. Every time I see them they look so much better than any Toulouse team I've seen before.

Not saying we can't do 'em, mind.

Don’t get me wrong here since I think Toulouse are a very good side (based on the limited amount that I have seen of them). However at this point in time they have not played any team that has put them under pressure. The only top 6 side they have played is Fax and at that time Fax were just not as good as they have been since, even then in the second half Fax gave them a game.

I just feel that once they are under pressure that they may be found out. Roll on Yorkshire day I can’t wait.

Yes absolutely thats the question mark about them. Put them in front of a full house at Post Office Road and let's see what they're made of.

Ok.

So I want DC7 at fullback at Widnes, Daggsy on the wing, Hall & Hardcase at centre.

Then, at Wembley, DC7 at fullback again, Hall to the wing, Hlaton at centre.

Job's a good 'un.

Agree MLP with Tom H in the halves the  the outside backs pick themselves on sunday 

picking a team for  WEMBERLEY !!!!!!  be interesting to see who's available for webbo's squad🤣

So the usual 19-man squad conundrum is up on the RFL website. https://www.rugby-league.com/match-centre/match-preview/20161 with the customary two men missing.

If the usual alphabetical order rule holds, it means that Lockwood and Halton are both still out, which is a concern, especially Lockwood, who has already missed three games in a row.

If the alphabetical order rule holds true the two missing names are going to come after Parata in the alphabet. You'd think Spence will be one of the names, but I'm struggling for the other - my guess is Sweeting may have been recalled from York (he doesn't appear to be in their squad).

My tentative guess at the 17 would be:
Chisholm
Gale
Hardcastle
Hall
Dagger
Holmes
Brown
Kopczak
Jones
Harrison
Ferres
Moors
Ferguson
subs:
Parata
Cooper
Davies
Field

Widnes look to have a couple of injured players returning to their squad so we will need to play well.

Joe Summers is the name I was missing, think this is his first appearance in a 21-man squad list.

PH  no Frankie H or James L again but the inclusion of Dale F and Joe S who's injury made him a figment of our imagination for the last four months our lord lucan gives us another interesting squad

No mention of injury to Frankie so reading between the lines looks like  he's being rested to impersonate Tom M at WEMBERLEY

Apparently he's injured, although it was reported that he was in the stand at Dewsbury.

Missing Lockwood and Halton is a spanner in the works. I'd like to see both players  at Wembley for different reasons. 

Perhaps there's a spot for Fergie at Widnes?

Uh oh. Halton just said on his Twitter that he's going to miss Wembley, it's clearly Covid-related as he talks about having done his 10 days tomorrow but still has to miss the Wembley game.

A big blow to our chances for sure, but also there's a much bigger picture there, are any of the 4 teams involved going to struggle even to raise a team?

Can't get my head round your post PH all we hear is if you have symptoms  have contact or  you get track and trace  need to SELF ISOLATE and after 10 days isolation  you can go back to work  but Frankie can't definitely an intriguing turn of events

Yeah, seen that. Damn shame for the lad. 

With Dagger also cup-tied, our Wembley backline looks one short now. Call up for Doyle? Can't really see any other second rower at centre tbh

Not really. There is a 7 day back-to-play protocol which starts when self isolation finishes. Hence........

If not we may have to play Conner at centre which would be a real waste.

I'm sure I'll think of something funny to say soon.

Presumably, given he's named in the squad.

  We have had cripples named in the squad recently.But whats the use of having younger players in the squad if you don't give them a game.It's going to be tough this afternoon and i would settle for a 1 point win.
