Isn’t it.

Don’t know why you post a headline like that. From a fans point of view I would look at any promising younsters outside of the team and give them a runto see if they can step up, nothing to lose.

Actually, if we're not very careful, there is a lot to lose.

Dean played a blinder in the reserves after being called back from York. Not sure why we can’t just give him a chance. He can’t be any worse than Ratchford or Mata’utia at half, and possibly better. Nothing to lose IMO.

Matautia at 6, our top 3 try scorers from last year all now playing at other clubs. 

Powell is trying to be too smart, and we should judge on the results (and I don't just mean the actual scores).

Looking from the outside Powell’s player retention/recruitment is a bit of a car crash.

He's made the point a few times now that certain players don't like to be criticised in a certain way, obviously a dig at players he has moved on, but there is a problem when there hasn't been any marked improvement in any of the players and almost every player has gone backwards. Notable exceptions in Wrench and Thewlis, but I expect these were going to get better and better as they get more games in any case.

When wire stuffed us 32-10 in April, Thewlis, Dean and Wrench scored 24 of the 32 points between them so i expected them to keep their places after playing so well against us but it seems Wire's policy is play the big earners whatever as from what i can gather the stars have been quite poor this season but keep getting picked?.

The mark of a good coach is realising that players respond to different approaches,some need & respond to a good bollocking,others don’t & need a more subtle approach.

The moving on of players who only last year were performing at a high level seems reactionary & hints at trouble in the camp.

I post a headline like that because I’ve been a wire season ticket holder since 1991 and I’m more than a little pished off.  So I’m being sarcastic/ironic/funny - delete as applicable.

He’s at Newcastle now on a season long loan deal isn’t he ?

I’m not prejudiced, I hate everybody equally

Newcastle sorry, yes. But he’s been recalled and playing for the reserves.

I have just posted this on the game thread but it is relevant here as well.

Toulouse have Wakefield away next week and then a run of three consecutive home games against Leeds, Salford and Hull FC.  And then HKR and Warrington away.

So the next 7 games against teams no higher than 6th and 3 weeks of home games on the bounce.

Meanwhile, Wire's next 5 games see them play 4 sides in the top 5 on the table.

I don't think Toulouse are out of this race at all and it could get very interesting.

Hiring Daryl Powell wasn't seen by anybody as a bad decision. We'll see how it ultimately plays out, but in principle it is not a bad decision at all.

Lumping Hetherington in with Fitzpatrick is perhaps your most 😂 post yet.
