Shorroks looked really lively at KR and is very unlucky not to play as tommy was, once again,non creative at seven...... TT is a big loss now that flower is out so ide start lockers at prop as nav drops the ball way to much at important times........ gonna be a tricky one with sammut as nobody seems to know if hes unfit or just dropped....... as for greenwood ( who knows)? Maybe its for the best as we need to keep all seventeen fit for once this season......, escare has to start at one and given a fair go...... add to that his goalkicking and its an easy option........ obviously rainy conditions will alter team selection but, if dry, that would be my choices

T didn’t deserve a place in the squad based on form alone but Shorrocks did in my opinion. I am finding it very difficult to understand Lam’s selection policy especially given his statement a few weeks ago when he stated that the forwards needed to perform or they would be dropped. Jobs for the boys continually springs to mind!
Who else would you suggest he bring into the squad in the pack.?
He's got Partington, Byrne and Smithies in there.
As for Shorrocks, IF !! Sammutt is fit I think he should play. Tommy and Powell to share the hooking role.
Sarge to FB, Hankinson to centre. Escare and 3 forwards on the bench.
Simples.!!
You cannot have Escare on the bench, one of Tommy/Powell and 3 forwards on the bench.

Who was included who you don't think should have been based on the above?

Who could they have been replaced with?
That is irrelevant my post is based on Lam's comment that players will be picked on form. Players should be rewarded for playing well.

For what is it worth sefc I agree with you. All these quotes spouted by Lam become meaningless soundbites if he fails to act on what he claims in newsprint. This is not some sort of misquote or off-the-record comment. He openly was interviewed and made that statement in print. His words and as such his actions are utter rubbish if he won't back them up. He looks weak and by God he will be weak
I'm a better fan than you
Because I don't "Boo"!!!

We never lose any games
We just don't win them (always the refs fault anyway)

Because that would be 5 players and not 4...

So which players do not warrant a place based on form and which players should have been brought in?
