Houghton has to sit out next week too, unfortunately.


Think he is back, although not 100% yet.

We missed Houghtons defence and work rate but we looked a lot sharper at ptb with Brown and Balmforth..maybe a case of Brown at 13 when houghton back

No one can fault Lanes effort, but he isn't good enough, the first try was fully he fault, he can't tackle a 19 year old 12 stone halfback, then gets dominated on the floor, just puts his hands up, instead of being at marker, leaving a huge gap Walker to stroll through.

He is a poor defender and does make the break he use too, him being in the 17 everywhere, is one of the reasons where we are.

Next week I'd go with

Walker
Mcintosh
Carlos/Mcintosh
Sutcliffe
Martin
Smith
Brown
Houghton
Ashworth
Okunbor
Staverley
Brown/Lane

Balmforth
Sao
Lane/Severs
Gardiner


I know in a previous post I called Lane gash but I’d have him over Okunbor,who is looking a awful signing.

Disagree on Lane, misses too many tackles, gives away too many penalties and isn't strong enough to break the line...when was the last time you came away from a game thinking lane was outstanding?

I agree with what you say but with us not recruiting 2nd rowers we are a bit stuck with him and I’d have him over Okunbar tbh but Staveleys performance may force Lane out or to up his game

Now I have calmed down after the card fiasco….did Warrington really hurt us…2 late blow out try’s and 2 from dummy half we preventable but did they really threaten us….when we had our good spell,we looked more dangerous with ball.Scoreline hugely flatters them imo.

After tonight Nu Brown will be glad he’s only signed for a year. Bet he’ll be glad to get back home back to a bit of normality as far as rules go.


Think it will also make it harder to sign overseas players?

Who in their right mind would want to come and play in this competition?
