Could be a tricky one this. Bad weather, big pack who are riled up. Have Lam and the team learned lessons from last year's cup game v Leeds?

I suspect we will be as equally riled up.

I don’t think they are that big really and that’s positive for us. They’ll have Satae, Sao and Ma’u who all stand just over 6ft tall but are certainly not giants like Leeds threw at us, then they’ve got plenty of smaller forwards like Lane, Cator and Jack Brown who are under 6ft tall and very much in the mould of some of our young forwards like Smithies and Partington. I’d say we have the bigger pack overall with guys like Bullock, Singleton, Byrne and Havard. I could think of plenty of superleague packs that would be bigger than ours or Hulls.

If there’s any shred of truth in Clubbs defence/denial that is doing the rounds on social media (it’s probably fake mind) and the players believe it, then you could well be right.

It's been reported in the WEP anyway;

https://www.wigantoday.net/sport/rugby-league/revealed-what-tony-clubb-claims-he-really-said-to-andre-savelio-3227279

The other thread is locked, but it only seems fair to report that TC refutes what has been said.

I'll leave it there.

I’d just been told by a mate it’s his legit defence. I was thinking it was a photoshop job.

Well we know why he’s not apologising if he’s sticking to that. I guess we’ll never know the truth really, especially as the disciplinary went with him ‘probably’ saying it.

The article does say that it's taken directly from the transcript the RFL have released. Either it's dodgy, or the WEP have published something they shouldn't have.

We definitely don't have as much size about us with Taylor and Bowden missing. Satae is a big old unit, Sao, Ma'u and Savelio are pretty big too.

Lane I would compare to Farrell in terms of size and style. Not comparing them in quality, I think Liam Farrell is an outstanding player, although Lane is improving all the time. But anyway he is in that mould.

Cator is smaller and more of a work horse kind of player with a little bit of skill about him.

Jack Brown isn't tall but he's stocky and powerful with a good offload. He's not a giant but I wouldn't call him small. He can be a handful. In fact this is a great chance for Brown on a big stage. He's 20 now and has been on the edge of the 17 for a couple of years now. This is a good chance for him to really stake a claim for a regular bench spot. I like him a lot, I think he is future international material. Really strong for a kid that age.

Lane has blown me away this season tbh. With all due respect to the lad, I thought he was a pretty average player coming in to this season but Hodgson looks to have worked wonders with him. He’s been dynamite in a couple of games I’ve seen him this season.

The packs are both mobile really and it makes for an interesting contest. Neither side has a couple of those huge prop forwards you see knocking around (Bullock and Satae I guess are the biggest on each side) but the game should be really quick and a massive fitness battle. If the weather is as bad as is being made out then it’ll be the team with the better ball control that I’d imagine will win the game. Hull will have the edge in the kicking department, so we’ll need to be good in possession and with our discipline.
