Interesting one this. Saints will either be really up for it after the CC semi, or they’ll have the toughest encounter of the season and shattered. Six day turnaround too for saints so any head knocks they get will be ruled out v us.

It’s expected that we have Thompson, Smith and Holroyd back for this game, with a maybe against Handley, which is where the hard work starts for Agar.

Friday we looked like we could beat anyone playing like that, do we go with the same? I’ll be honest and say I think majority stays the same, the bench is the hardest picks, with Gannon playing out of his skin.

I’d be keeping Gannon in all day long. Don’t want to over expose him but he’s in really good form. Possibly Smith coming in to the bench for Donno. Or depending on how fit he is taking the place of Mellor.

Its a case of who do you leave out rather than who is available.

Stopping Lomax will be the key, but he plays so flat and is usually so good in situations where he doesn't have much time that it will be very difficult. He's such an underrated player, and is the best English half by a mile IMO.

I think we just need to get the balance right with Gannon.
On the one hand he should not be dropped nor should Donaldson imo.
On the other hand we don`t want to over play him like we did with Ward at an early age.

Couldnt agree more. No need to over play Gannon at his age as it will take its toll eventually. Nice and gradual with him will do him good long term.

Hes a phenomenal kid though.

Doesn't necessarily work like that. Some players can just absorb constant injuries, aka Peacock. Others go down, and stay down regularly. Mainly luck I think. You could wrap someone in cotton wool, and bam, one bad head collision or knee twist, or countless other bad injuries, career over...
I don't begrudge paying any of these lads well...!
