I think so.
He’s a young lad and will be drip fed the first team.

Maybe Bullock to drop out rather than Wood. Bull made a few mistakes in the Saints game.

Apart from the knock on with his first play the ball, I thought he went well.

Yeah I like Bullock. He had a strong game against Leeds.

You can’t reward soft discipline that gets him banned for lengthy spells.



While I suspect this is playing to the gallery, I’ll bite.

I commend the decision to make Vaughan start from the bench, but some of this is hyperbole. Vaughan has given away three penalties all year. Holroyd is our most penalised with 6.

For 119 tackles and 92 carries, 3 penalties isn’t too shabby. Yes, dangerous throw sees a suspension, but I think that in isolation we could forgive. The one against Saints last year was simply ridiculous. Nobody comes off well from that.

But if you compare Bullocks two penalties for 36 tackles and 16 carries (league stats only, not cup), Vaughan isn’t the ill disciplined rogue he’s being painted to be.

And he’s also the best prop in the league. Are there two better starting props than Harrison and Vaughan in the league?

I'm probably wide of the mark, but my guess is Burgess is simply making the point that we still have players to get the job done without Vaughan. No player is bigger than the team and all that.

Very shrewd man management on the part of Burgess.

In the absence of Vaughan, over the last two games, others have had to step up. The message is clear, you performed and therefore you keep your place. Vaughan is too good to be left out of the 17 but, if the starting 13 from last week continue to perform, then we can afford to play him from the bench (actually not a bad option tactically to start with Harrison / Philbin then rotate with Vaughan / Bullock).

Whoever misses out this week, I would expect either Wood or Holroyd (my money would be on Wood), can feel a little unlucky but I'm sure that Burgess will handle that equally as well.
