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. #18thMan

I would like to see us field:
Field - French - Halsall - Bibby - Marshall - Cust - Smith
Cooper - O’Neill - Byrne - Faz - KPP - Smithies
Mago - Ellis - Shorrocks - Singleton
I think they could get the job done.

I'd take a punt and give Hill a bench spot over Shorrocks.

It looks like it is going to be too hot at Wakefield on Sunday to stand out in the sun. How will the players cope in that heat running around at top speed?
Water breaks more often than every 20 minutes? Temporary lifting of the number of subs rule?

It's the exact reason pretty much every side goes away to do warm weather training. They're professional sportsmen and should be fine to play 80 minutes in 27 degrees of Yorkshire sun

A strong team with perhaps one youngster gives the best opportunity to blood new talent. We need to get the balance right between showing the opposition respect and giving pathway to youngsters to keep them interested.

We are at the business end of the season, why would we blood youngsters now?
