With that form and attitude, we should not take hull likely.
They ran hard, fast and strong
They tackled hard
Sneyds kicking game was excellent
They spread the ball outwide excellent

Lam should pack the bench with his best forwards and leave Smith out I’m afraid.

One final thing, how over rated is Widdop? I’ve still never seen him have an amazing game.
the only problem we have with leaving smith out is if we get a half injured...... i fear we are knackered if the above did happen
It is all if's and buts though isn't it.

Wigan v Hull for a GF slot
That isn’t possible since we play Hull in the semis.
The post says "for" a GF slot, meaning they'll play each other for a slot in the GF, not they'll play in the GF
Stand corrected.

I get the risk, I just thing the benefit of 4 forwards outweighs the risk and the salford and saints game shows that.

Our semi will be a firecracker, both teams hitting form at the right time. Hull played well v Wire but to me they had the belief - dangerous opponents with a "home" GF as motivator.

Thanks, kev! Just spotted it and about to reply myself. "If all else fails, read the instructions."

I watched the Hull derby, and even allowing for Sky's bombast, Jake Connor did look very sharp. They are a good side with they get their stuff together. And their recent form has been good, although they did lose a home game to Leeds at <checks notes>, er, Headingley.
Sky’s bombcast?
Someone thinks SKY talks up the quality - that's counter to nathan's narative that they do it down.

Must admit personally, id prefer to play Hull Fc in the semi's. Makes me rather bitter when we lose to Wire :x

Although id be confident of beating either at the DW :).

Lockers would move to half back or Sam Powell.
