Got to agree with RR about some of his team selection. Why change a settled team to accommodate loanees or supposed quality signings. Hartley deserves his spot in preference to R.............. ( can't think of his name). Since R came we have lost both games. Against Doncaster 4 tries came down his wing and against Dewsbury he drooped the ball with the line begging. I don't think Hartley would have made those mistakes.

Slater has been one of the standout players this season so he's dropped in preference to Forber, it doesn't make sense.

Has Blagborough gone - I wouldn't blame him.

A settled team is what's needed and the old heads should be controlling the game.

Workington next with North Wales the week after with our play off place decider against Hunslet the week after. I feel the way things are panning out we will finish fourth and then win promotion.

I’m all for backing Oldham lads playing for this club but to suggest Slater as been a stand out performer is a bit of over an statement. 

the issue is with dual reg and in my opinion the Wilkinson and Slater combination as been fantastic this season along with ridyard and Paga and our attack due to these players has been very slick, neither of our hookers should be being dropped for a Wigan player unless it’s a Wigan regular who is obviously levels above, both 9s have been fantastic throughout the season both having potential one bad game each.

Watching the highlights back makes it more frustrating we didn’t push Dewsbury closer.

I believe we played really well in the first twenty minutes and should have scored potentially 3 or 4 try’s especially the new winger and Wilson from Wigan should have had two for me and the try we did score was great rugby linking between our key playmakers McNally ridyard and wilkinson. I believe the frustration of not taking these opportunities lead to the performance and mistakes in the rest of the game. 

hopefully everything clicks comes play off time as we can’t afford to blow that many opportunities.

With us having players suspended every game, does anyone know who will be missing next Sunday against Workington?

Baker missing 1 game ban. Wasn't sure on Paga as that was showing 4-6 on the disciplinary so didn't know when it would start from, but from previous comment looks like for this game
