I’m predicting a typical pre season game. A decent-ish start with a few dropped balls followed by an increased lack of cohesion as both sides make a raft of substitutions.

There’ll be a couple of players on each side that show up well and a couple that look a bit short of fitness. At least one kid/unknown will have a couple of good moments.

Not really bothered about the result so long as nobody gets injured and it helps blow the cobwebs away.

Regarding the rules, I don't agree with the reduced interchanges.

But we don't know if the New Interchange Rules apply in Pre Season Games

Been Bradford's second game I think they will put a decent team out where as for us it will be a good opportunity to give our fringe players some game time. It will be interesting to see who takes the second half back place along with White with the other obvious candidates all out injured. Im going for a Bradford win and them thinking they have set down a marker.

white not in the squad, adam brook in halves with ?
been around here long time, thought would start posting...........

Chapman-Smith is injured. No idea about White and surprised Brook is included as it looked like he was off out loan.

I’ll go for Bulls by 10. Think you may struggle with lack of experienced halves. But it gives a chance for your younger ones to get a game. Hopefully it will be a good game!

Spot on mate.our halves were awful and we got what we deserved.

Typical pre-season friendly really. Fans lose it because we lost a game, fans and players lose it because other fans have stated an opinion, Grix calls the performance "ordinary" and everyone seems to fail to pick up on it.

I thought Bradford looked ahead of us at this stage of the season but that was to be expected with them been mainly full time and it been their second game. Fitness wise I thought they had a few players blowing which may be a worry with the reduction in subs but again its still pre-season. They looked way better than us in attack.

For us we defended well at times and showed enough to say that our pack is going to be up there with the best once we get a couple more players back in. Fitness wise I thought we looked decent for where we are in pre-season. Attack was non existent, I think JWH will make a better centre than a half anyway and Brook's level is probably mid table League 1. Going in to a game without recognised half backs is always going to be a problem and there is no way to change our attacking structure in the off season if both are injured which is a worry as we can probably expect another low scoring season.
