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

I wouldn't leave Havard out, he's be there before Greenwood IMO.

I would guess with the squad and the way they rotate during games that Flower will get the nod, maybe starting and either Partington or more likely, Byrne may miss out. The basic team picks itself these days.
Partington won’t miss out he plays big minutes. The last two games he played 69 & 65!
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

The weather forecast for tomorrow is for heavy rain and strong winds. The kicking game will be vitally important, we really have to close Gale down and not give cheap possession and/or field position away. No needless penalties please!!
I expect a very tough game and we need to be at our best. I agree with you Brian but I would also add that our defensive line needs to be fast, just as it was against Hull.

Exactly. And replace who, Smith ? As usual, there'll be 3 forwards on the bench (especially with the weather that's forecast), so that won't and shouldn't happen, Smith has become an important interchange, with his distribution, support and kicking game. Plus he's shown he can be a match winner at his young age. Hankinsons not at that level.
