One major issue for us yesterday and i can only see this being the same all season or until Noble makes the change. With Riddell off the pitch and Tommy taking over the hooking role (which i thought he did a great job of) we have no option but to play Locky at 6 and switch Tim to 7.

If this is the way we want to go this year we may as well write the year off now.

Noble talks of not rushing Sam into the side, but as far as i can see we simply have no choice!

Or McIllorum, the other Hooker in the squad, but either way Locky to 6 isn't acceptable and I see it being a continuing issue as he tries to accomodate all 5 of our back rowers, rather than dropping one.

It does seem pretty obvious Noble wants to add a quality 6 to his ranks, in fact I'd say the team need it.

The point about Sam/McIlorum is sound, and should be acted upon. Unfortunately, should a quality 6 become available, the usual mob will be out in style.

Will this be the extra signing thst IL has been talking about, i cannot think who would be available who would fit the bill.

It's such an obvious thing that it's totally baffling that it hasn't happened yet. Surely it'll happen next weekend? There can't be any excuses after yesterday.

I think a 6 needs to be added to the squad, and if it is, Sam & McIllorum will be out on loan because they won't get a look in.

Noble does not rate Sam anywhere near as highly. He has real hang ups about small players whomever they are. IL wants Sam in the team (IL in a sense does not help by making Sam 'his boy') So Sam becomes about more than the simple selection it should be and more about the power struggle between coach / owner.

I did say previously that at Leigh, Sam T could have been selected to play at 7 but had he done so and played well Noble would have been forced to select him v Wakey. By not selecting him to play many here agreed that he should at best be sub v Wakey. This is how pathetic selection politics has got at the club. Ironically, Noble talks about the players having their own agendas.

V Hull, Noble cannot not select Sam

However, if Noble had his way the Lockers to 6 ploy would be how he prefers to go. Lockers to 6 is crazy BTW and threatens to damage the good start to 2009 that Lockers had.

Our club is embroilled in a pathetic power struggle between owner / coach.

deffo need a proper 6, because smith cant play there.
is we play sam, where does that leave tommy? arguably the best player yesterday, and wasted at 9 imo.

as someones said, there are no quality 6's available, so how about trying out my theory (dont rubbish it till youve thought about it).

KARL PRYCE at 6.

his bro never played 6 at bradford, he played sinilar roles to karl, wing, centre, full back, but never (or maybe the odd one off) at 6.
bradford fans used to rubbish my suggestions that he was a 6....now look at him..........gb no 6.

so lets try the same switch with his bro, who is similar in style.
