The combination they have struck up these last few games is sensational.i have not seen a fax centre (and he's a makeshift one) deliver service like that to his winger for a long time.

Plus Calahane feeding him some great passes. All three been a revelation recently. Can't believe it's taken nearly 3 years to find out Calahane has that passing ability!

Can't see Salty getting back in unless there's an injury.

Ben Heaton keeps rising to the challenge again and again, he was on the fringes when he got left out of the team at the end of the KH era, then loaned to Batley.
There has been a few contenders since then that have come and gone.
His determination and commitment is second to none, just going about his business.
One weakness and criticism when he was in the centres was that he hardly ever got a pass a way to his winger.
True or false?
Answer, play him on the wing and he doesn't have to pass just catch and he has shown he can catch and finish.

Barber has some ball handling skills, when he's in the forwards the offload sometimes goes to ground and it's certainly been better at centre as he gets an understanding with BH.

Calahane being played in the second row has been a master stroke, again a good pair of hands and the size to punch through the opposition in the second row and make them worried and the engine to put in some big minutes to keep it going.

Spot on that our weakness for some time now has been centres that don't pass the ball but what a revelation now its great to watch lets keep it going lads :thumb:
