The options set out in the post above are interesting. I think Golding at fullback, Pickersgill at 6 and Lilley at 7 would be my choice unless we can get another loan player in.


Think Lilley and Pickersgill are too similar to play together in halves. I know its old fashioned but I still see halfback and standoff as being distinct roles. Halfback is the organiser/creative player and standoff takes advantage of any chances created. To my mind both Lilley and Pickersgill are both more suited for standoff role. Neither is really an organiser/creative type. Ideally we could get someone in on a season long loan, Keyes would be ideal as already played alongside Lilley so should slot straight in but not sure if he's currently injured or in Hull KR's plans. Also would he be prepared to come back after the pension issues that led to him leaving under previous ownership.

Failing that think we need to give Race/Jowett a chance against some of the lesser opposition at least. Maybe go with Lilley/Pickersgill for tougher fixtures unless one of younglads really shines. At least while Golding is here he can drop in at FB. If he goes back we'd probably have to move brown to FB and try someone else on wing. How much longer is dawson jones out for?.

Realistically I'd be surprised to see Brough again this year unless damage isnt as bad as first announced once he sees specialist.

Take it with a rather large pinch of salt but Gledhill is claiming we will be bringing someone in to cover in the halves in Brough’s absence.

Lilley is the nearest thing we have now to a halfback that can control a game so unless we bring someone in that's going to be his role. Whoever plays at 6 is going to be more of a runner.

It's pants because Lilley was thriving without having to do everything. Keyes or McClelland would be great but as loan deals it's not perfect.

Race or Jowitt might be ok to try in spells before Brough got injured but now it's going to be more difficult as they'll come into a team that isn't as settled.

Supposedly that’s true according to ITK he’s really accurate like the time he said Ta’ai was coming to bulls… yeah I think Mclelland would be the best option… might be tempted to make his stay permanent too as he would be coming in similar circumstances to Lilley


I have no idea who runs the ITK account to be honest. But in all fairness Ta’ai was pretty much a done deal wasn’t it at one point? Could be wrong. Either way Craig Harrison (on the Full Eighty podcast) has said that the trade deal between Cas and Leeds is nonsense anyway.

McLelland is still on the fringes though and could be a good option. If the choice is there I’d sooner go for Keyes though as he can kick goals pretty well too.

I think Lilley has shown he can play either the 'runner' or 'organiser' role, but for me he's better as the runner, picking up the scraps and supporting. All that said, if we don't bring somebody in then we are down to untried (at this level) kids who are going to be dropped in at the deep end. Fair enough, there are lots of examples of youngsters coming in and taking the game by storm but they're not all are Keith Mumby or Sam Burgess. The choice is either that, or even more disruption by players switching roles.

It won't happen 'cos it never does, but we can hope that the injury isn't as severe as first thought and Brough is only out for a 'few' weeks - if that's the case we can bring the lads in and/or move some players around, but otherwise we'd better hope that JK is owed the odd favour.
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

I wouldn’t mind a 28 day rolling loan for a Keyes (if he is fit) or a McLelland at Leeds who doesn’t seem near a playing shirt at Headingley (also hear George Williams needs a gig for the rest of the year, anyone up for joining bullssquadbooster.co.uk ?)

Keyes is one of 5 Hull K.R. players out on loan according to Tony Smith in the Hull Daily Mail,but I can't remember where he is or how long he is still on loan for. They have loaned out Dagger to Fev today because they're short of a fullback.

Keyes played one game for York and went back to Hull KR after his 2 week loan ended. Hasn't played for Hull KR since. They prefer Rowan Milnes.

Anyone thinking Mikey Lewis might be the player to come in.
Hull KR want him to play in halfs and weren't happy with him playing Full Back at York.

Not really the experienced organiser Kear was looking for though
