Be interesting to see how Chris Hill goes tonight...

I know his name has been mentioned on here as someone we should be looking to bring in.

Strong defence and actual leg drive in every carry for over 25 mins so far.

Already better than our props have performed all season.

Agreed, kudos to NK who mentioned Hill as someone we should be looking at, I was sceptical but he’s looked very good so far.

He’s having an excellent season. I think he’ll stay at Wire and I’ve certainly seen no links to him coming here but he’d be high on my list. We can afford to give a 33/34 year old prop a couple of years, with even the option of a third because he’d be coming in to a side that contains props at totally the over end of the spectrum and they need experience alongside them.

I think we need three personally, especially if we can shift Clark on. If the finance is there to go something like Hill for Clubb and Mason for Bullock that’s a start. I’d then look at using the space left by Hastings and Leuluai to bring in another alongside a half (in an ideal world). An impact forward would be useful because again you can balance one off against the grafters like Singleton and Partington.

They sum up perfectly what I say about accepting dire rugby if you win things. They’re dreadful with the ball Saints and he’s lucky Woolf to be working on the back of a top coach like Holbrook.

When Coote's cut out ball to Grace or Makinson doesn't work, they tend to run out of ideas. Not letting your wingers get drawn in is key against Saints.

Saints defence is top notch and it will probably get them to the GF but if they can't run over the top of you they've got nothing to offer

Chris Hill signed 2yr deal with Huddersfield, not that I was pro Hill coming here but that’s an option gone.
