Also on BBC red button

Just in case anyone is unaware, you can record off the red button as it's listed as a channel on Sky (somewhere around 990, I think.  if you have the TV guide in 101 BBC1 and go up, you'll find it).

The club has said that the squad for the final will be announced at tonight's live broadcast of "Up Next" at the club this evening, so I doubt we'll see anything before then.

There's a chance presumably that we won't be massively wiser about the 17 from tonight's announcement as it sounds like there might be 1 or 2 late fitness tests and with the players out on loan we don't have many more to name compared with last week's 21-man squad. Although obviously some news on who's fit might be forthcoming this evening.

"Fev Rhinos" ad nauseum... particularly from fax fans who then entered into a DR arrangement themselves..... but of course their DR arrangement was justified and honourable....whereas ours was heinous and corrupt... blah blah blah

Squad announced, nor really telling us anything as all of our squad , without Connor and Loans listed. We will just have to wait till Tottenham. 

 Tickets bought , train fixed just the result which is not set in stone

I think it's easier to name the Leigh 17 than ours at the moment. My guess for Leigh is

Aekins
Ferguson
Chamberlain
McDonald
Inu
Reynolds
Mellor
Sidlow
Smith
Amone
Wardle
Stone
Asiata
subs
Ipape
Ioane
O'Donnell
Nakubuwai

Don't think there are any surprise omissions. Gaz Gale is included but then I don't think we had any other candidates for the 21st spot.

 

I would have thought with no games other than scholars and oldham tonight being played all players on short term loans would be made available to be named by their parent club

Probably, but as long as Mac is confident he's got at least 18 of his current squad fit and ready to play, there's not much advantage bringing back, say, Tom Holmes to be the 21st name in the squad instead of Gaz Gale. The team will have been told the 17-man line-up plus the 18th and 19th man earlier this week, the other 2 names are really just for the RFL's benefit.

  It would be less disruption to the line up if Wildie is fit enough to play.I suppose if his ribs were badly bruised he could play with pain killer injections(Which i don't like players to do}.Would like Smith and Jacks to start as half backs with Ford on the bench.Smith could go to 9 for Ford to come on at some stage.As Horseman said in an earlier post Bussey would have to play 9 if Wildie can't play.He will be fine there but i do prefer him in the back row.Got my subs down if all fit as Ford,Davies,Cuthbertson,Cooper.with Ferres ,Hepi,and Pickersgill missing out.My team Kheirallah-Briscoe- Leilua -Hellewell-Hall.  Smith-Jacks-    Kopczac-Wildie-Lockwood-Jesse-Moors-Bussey. I have given Hellewll a bit of stick but he has played well enough in the centre to keep his place while Josh is injured.Impressed against Haven when he charged down that kick and instead of kicking the ball trying to score dived on it to give us good field position.Those small margins possession wise will be needed against Leigh.

That's exactly what my guess would be for the lineup, the one thing that Jones' absence does mean for Mac is that he can start with Ford on the bench and have either Smith or Bussey as the back-up option at hooker if Wildie needs spelling/replacing.

The one slight difference is I think he'll play Bussey at edge back row and Moors in the middle/loose forward, partly because that's what he has been doing lately, but also because it would be tough on Bussey asking him to switch to 9 if he'd already been playing in the middle and doing lots of tackling.
