No Cam Smith again........(big sigh).

I'm with you Marty, Cam Smith should be in the 17. His defence might be a little suspect but Sutcliffe isn't stellar in this area either, and I think Smith is the better player (in the back row certainly). Although to be fair Sutcliffe went OK against Warrington.

I wouldn't be surprised if Hurrell misses a game or two - it's hard with big money players because you want them out on the field, but I'm sure the club will do the right thing by him if he's not fit.

We really could do with having Crosby available.

I am worried if we sit back and give Wigan the space we gave Warrington, this one could be painful. Neither of our halves look great in defence. I think our pack has more to give; Oledzki had very little go-forward against Warrington, we need him to be making impact at the defensive line, he can't be going missing. I'd fancy my own chances of averaging 5m per carry, although I'd need a stint in hospital afterwards.

I'm hoping more Tuigamala than Carroll but we'll see! TC was great when he was fit but yes you can see the similarities.

Looks about right. Ferres and Singleton didn't really impress me much last week (nor Oledzki, but I think he can do better). Interested what Furner goes with - you'd like to think there will be a tweak or two from last week as the pack wasn't right.

Wouldn't be surprised if Furner continues with Merrin at prop but hopefully with Peteru being available it gives him the option of playing him in the back row.

Yep i think most of us are disapointed Smith is not getting a gig , we need to find out if he is good enough , we already know others are not ( Ferris , Sutty and Peteru )

Think Ferres will be in his last year this year, Sutcliffe and Peteru have this season to show they’re worth a spot.
Furner is probably deciding between Sutcliffe and Smith and going for Sutcliffe for now; not sure you’d have them both in the pack at the same time when we have lots of senior back rowers including new marquee.

Let’s be honest here, Koni isn’t playing is he?

Another tonking on the cards with young Newman getting absolutely brayed down that side.

I like the look of Smith, and i know it is only Furners 2nd game as coach, but Smith seems to keep getting overlooked. McDermott got stick for not giving him much chance but when Sinfield took over he was not a regular then either. Makes you wonder if they all think he is still not ready for 1st team.
Woody: Can I pour you a draft, Mr. Peterson?
Norm: A little early, isn't it Woody?
Woody: For a beer?
Norm: No, for stupid questions.

We need Hurrell fit for the games we have a better chance in. No point playing him injured. He’ll cause some damage when the weather improves.

He can’t be far off, but you might prefer Sutty to him given the difference in experience, if there’s only room for one of them. Sutcliffe played quite well against Wire.
