Our trophy chances go if we lose any of Moon, Parcell or Cuthbo for an extended period in my opinion.

Those 3 have been the absolute spine of our attack this season.

Galloway is a miss but hopefully we can cover.

Definitely agree with this. I think we'll miss Galloway in defence. I hope it doesn't end up stifling Cuthbo's creativity

Cuthbertson shouldn't be used as a straight up and down prop. He's no good at it - without his creativity he's a sub par prop. Galloway's replacement should be whoever can do the best job at doing what Galloway does.

I genuinely think there's too much pressure on Smith due to him being a star junior. Its going to take a while for him to work out what role he plays and how. If he's not handled right he'll end up vanishing without trace.

Think he will vanish without a trace full stop. just shows good juniors don't always make good pro's. still young enough to turn things around but i think he is a dud. add to a long list of players who looked the dogs playing junior and academy but cant handle playing against men.

half true, whilst i think you are dismissing his ability as an out n out prop, you are right it is not his best asset, being a running ball player is defo is strongest point, but he can do the hard stuff if required.

Whilst he's not a natural up and down prop that doesn't mean on occasions he shouldn't do that a bit more when the situation requires for example bad weather or a slender lead, sometimes a nice solid run would be nice and what's needed.

There was a reason Bennett wanted Cuthbertson out at the Knights, and it was because once he was made to stop the offloads he was basically Ben Cross Mk2, except without giving away as many penalties. I've no doubt he can 'do a job' and still does at times, his role simply has to be using his offloads - its best for him and the team.

Anyway, all I'm saying is that someone else needs to do the straight up and down job Galloway does, and it shouldn't be Cuthbertson.

I think Baldwinson & Ormondroyd have played enough games to be available for both.
