There does seem to be an intent in making the game more and more of a mockery. Low refereeing standards; A disciplinary system that seems more like a balancing system and revenue stream and many other aspects that have already been mentioned.

It seems like Matt Peet is going to select Ratchford based on his comments. It's a big ask, but Saints are in a similar situation and might also be giving a debut to a young hooker. It's a baptism of fire to make a debut in a derby but sometimes you can overcomplicate things. If Peet is confident in his abilities then it's the obvious choice.

I don't know if Hampshire has ever played hooker before but he doesn't seem like the sort of player you'd put in the middle of the field. He just seems a bit too weak defensively for me.

The only other option with experience at hooker is Adam Keighran, and that experience is at the highest level, but that would mean Eckersley at centre and a right edge that contains Nsemba, Farrimond and Eckersley alongside each other. That's probably putting too much inexperience together and potentially causing a bigger issue.

I'd say go with Ratchford for as long as we can and then maybe have someone fill in. Given how important the role is defensively I think Farrell might be an option there too, with Walters moving to the left edge.
Yup I’d play Keighran at hooker and young eckersley at centre they won’t let anyone down not sure that Hampshire is much use at hooker tbh has he ever played there? No did go if it where me and give the kids their chance against an ageing and injury hit at Helens side
Ratchford will do for me, we need someone at 9 who can pass accurately and quickly. I am never in favour of putting a round peg in a square hole. However, in Peet I trust. Same as last week. As for the Saints, they are an ageing team but I think you will find that apart from Makinson and Walmsley they will be able to select their best starting 13.
Thought Hurrell was out for awhile though truth is they’ve got lomax with a broken hand and they are yes experienced but ageing side honestly I can’t see anything but a Wigan win even with injuries this is a very deep squad Wigan have and the kids are just the gravy as they can slot in anywhere

It sounds like Mr Peet is hinting at a debut for Tom Ratchford on Friday. I haven't seen much of him but hear he is quite a talent. It would mean two young, small lads in the middle of the park with him and Farrimond but our Academy products just seem to be able to cope when they're thrown in to these big games.

My slight reservation with Ratchford is that having looked him up on the Warriors website, according to his date of birth, he isn't due to be born until October 10th this year. I know we say if they're old enough they're good enough but a foetus ?

I'd put ellis at hooker, good hands, good tackling and can play the full game. Thompson to loose bring bryn back into the side. Job done. Your welcome matty

Hurrell could play on Friday as could Matautia, Lomax’s hand is now fully healed.

Bryn is Welsh for Hill so perhaps it is Harvie Hill? Like a 3-2-1 clue that...
I think more likely it was a typo and was meant to say Byrne!

Just been watching the HKR v CAT game, if O’Neils tackle deserves a ban why not Mikey Lewis, his tackle looked worse. Personally think O’Neils was a brilliant hard tackle but by the laws of the game I can understand it
