You'd think if the call was for more grunt up front, Flower and Clark would be in, and to a lesser extent Kilner, who is a big lad. So whether that's Covid related, who knows? But with no Burgess or Gildart either...
be interesting if its rainy conditions again
No rain in Leeds friday

Or Hankinson.
I'm generally curious why Hankinson keeps popping up he will not improve or reduce our performance.
Added to the fact that given he has barely played for us, what are people basing their judgement on?

Players who don't play automatically become genius hero saviours.

It seems to me that we have 3 full and two half "middles": Smithies, Partington and Bullock, with Lockers and Singleton probably able to contribute 30 minutes each. There's also Joe Shorrocks, who has been filling in in that kind of role.

It's been mostly dry here today, though the ground is damp, and showers forecast tomorrow morning and early afternoon. Conditions won't be like the semi, but it won't be a hard track.

I'd expect Wire to learn from Leeds tactics and have Clarke constantly running from dummy half. If we can stop him and control their offloading game, we're in with a decent chance, but imo we must play Faz on the left.

Interesting focus on Hankinson considering he's not in the squad??

He performance v stains was good quality considering he hasn't played all year, not sure why the negatively towards the lad he is a Wigan player!!! So use him when needed, obviously he's not a French or Gildart but I'm pretty sure he can do more than Bibby if he had the chance

Agreed he couldn't make us worse v Leeds but surely he would have given us another kicking option?

Just seen we are playing Isa at centre! I know quite a few on here don’t rate Hankinson, but he is a much better centre than Isa!

Isa and Bibby. He's going to sink or swim with this option is Lam.
