With pre-season done and dusted who would you expect, or want, the starting line up to be. It should be a tough game.

I personally feel Featherstone have a much better squad that we do. And their starting 13 is far superior in my opinion.

What are the availabilities of Hallas, England and Murphy? Wouldnit be wise throwing them in against Featherstone if they are fit? Or keep them until the Sheffield game where it matters and potentially have an extra week off should we lose?

I’d go:

25. Sanderson
2. Brown
4. Oakes
22. Hamlett
5. Dawson-Jones
1. Pickersgill
6. Brough
15. Fleming
9. Doyle
10. Crossley
20. B. England
16. Gallagher
11. Rooks

14. Flanagan
17. Nzoungou
18. Scurr
0. Walker (should he be signed)

Pickersgill
Sanderson
Evans
Oakes
Dawson-Jones
Brough
Race
Fleming
Doyle
Crossley
Rookes
Murphy*
Hallas*

Flanagan
B. England
Scurr
Nzoungou

Obviously this is based on expectated returns from injury and personally I’d give race a go at half not overly impressed with Jowitt

Think we need to give Murphy and Hallas minutes if fit. Let's be fair this is a free hit. The Sheffield game is the one we need to be on it. I'd give minutes for Race as well. He won't get any other chance to play some minutes. Not sure if Kear will go a him though.

Only reason Kear hasn’t gone with him is he’s been injured he’s already been quoted as saying basically either race or jowitt

There will be lots of different opinions over the next few days about who shouldnt be in the side.

Despite differing view points, how good is it to be having these coversations again!!.

Over 12 months since we have had to worry about who will be in the side for a 'propper' game.

Welcome back Rugby league. We have all missed you !!!

I’m hoping we are taking this cup game as a final ‘preseason’ warm up match to be ready for Sheffield. Fev should have too much for us and a cup run is very low priority especially with a lack of fans in the grounds.

100% agree is great to have these things to discuss again

If we keep the score respectable that would be enough for me. Can't see us winning this at all.
