If Price puts him straight back into the team I'd be bitterly disappointed. Toby hasn't done anything to warrant being dropped.

At Wembley we need to pick a team to win the game. Both King and Atkins are good players and I wouldn't be worried about either.

Catalans' left edge, with Wiliame, Edwards and Yaha, is devastating and is a big part of their success. So the question must be: what is the best selection to nullify that threat, and do we have enough of a threat of our own to put Catalans under pressure down that side?

At this stage I think that a fit Atkins might just be the better option. He is an aggressive runner and defender and can take petrol out of the tank of people like Wiliame and Edwards. Edwards is also a bit of a bully/nice person, and I think Ryan has the temperament not to get wound up by him. If Atkins can drag Yaha into a tackle with the odd big charge, you can see there being the room outside for Charnley to make an impact.

Burgess, Ellis and Thaiday for strenth and being a nother prop.

If you want the whole package then Lockers is the best right now.

You can remove Atkins from your mind. It's not happening.

Aggressive defender? His defensive game along with his passing abilty is his weakness. Not sure Which atkins you watch. At Wembley we need someone who can make a break and finish, or failing that have the footballing brain and ability release the ball onto a support runner to finish off our chances. Atkins has the ability to do 2/3 of those things, Toby has the ability to do all 3.

Atkins has the size strength and pace for an impact second rower off the bench for my liking

A bench of Atkins, Murdoch-Masila, Phlibin and Patton would be my ideal for the rest of the season.

We still fade when Hill and Cooper go off and that bench wouldnt help matters I don't think. 2 prop forwards on the bench for me.

2nd row forwards dont get subbed often if at all these days, they're expected to do 80minutes. Loose Forward often gets a blow but putting Atkins in a pivitol position? nah mate.
