Re: 21-man squad vs Catalans

I think Lam said that G Burgess was a couple of weeks away, rather than Flower. I can’t think of anyone who should drop out of the squad for Clubb. It is so long since he has done anything of note for us (2017?) that it seems odd even to see his name in the list.

Re: Players with covid

Looking at the squad for Friday, am guessing Gildart and Burgess are 2 of them. We don’t seem to be getting very much for our money from Gildart this year.

Re: Time for a reality check

He has been playing for decades, and only been effective as a strong hitting hooker, so to expect him to develop a kicking game is insane.

Re: 21-man squad vs Leeds

The one player that everyone seems to rate except me is Partington. He is simply too small. Leeds based their success on negating our go forward (and making yards after contact from dummy half runs). Partington is too small even to dent a line, for all his hard work, and so the halves and hooker end...

Re: Changes Needed

Even if we win against a Warrington side with Wembley on their minds, it won’t prove anything. He has been given a squad good enough to win regular non pressure league games regardless of his coaching. The Saints game will be his last chance to earn a reprieve from the axe (if he lasts that long) - ...

Re: Changes Needed

I don’t think we are that far off, as long as Lam and Lockers go. We have loads of potential but a coach with a zero % success rate in big games.

Re: 21-man squad vs Leeds

As the back line picks itself, I was wondering about the right pack for this one. I would be happy with pretty much any permutation of the forwards in the squad, but would be tempted to go with:
Bullock Powell Partington Isa Faz Lockers: Shorrocks Greenwood Flower

Re: 21-man squad vs Leeds

I wouldn’t be surprised to see Shorrocks in the side, maybe ahead of Partington. I think he has taken his chance really well, and that Smithies will regret taking a self inflicted 6 match break.

Re: Semi-final team

I would have Bullock to start, and Greenwood on the bench. I don’t rate Partington as more than a lightweight tackler, but he isn’t a massively weak link. I am beginning to think that Shorrocks is more effective, as he seems to dent the line. So one or other of Partington and Shorrocks on the bench.

Re: Adrian Lam happy to be "on edge" over Wigan Warriors future

I think we should see how things look after we have played Saints and Leeds.
