I'd go for Gregson before Isa as he is a more natural replacement for SOL as it is certain he won't play 80 minutes.
TT from the bench and about time that Frank earned his corn from the ko.
Wouldn't be surprised if Powell plays at half for part of the game to give TL a bit of a breather.


I thought Tautai continued his good form on Monday from the start andin turn Nuuausala put in a season best performance from the bench so I'd probably just stick as we were in that regard.

Isa comfortably over Gregson for me. I'm a big fan of Isa around the middle and whilst he's a different type of player to Lockers, I think he can be very effective. I also thought Gregson was well off the pace on Monday tbh. He's young and is coming back from a really bad injury so it will take time. I'd love to see him given some chances in a really strong Wigan side because in his career so far he's only ever seemed to play in teams decimated by injury.

I know I will be in the minority with Gregson (probably of one) but I was thinking like you stated he rarely seems to get the chance to play his natural game in a decent squad.
I want Frank to start to hopefully kick start his season. He should be our main prop but personally I feel he is just another South Sea Islander with grunt but little if any substance which is disappointing after a promising start last season. He doesn't seem fit so let's get him fit playing decent minutes.
Looking forward hopefully to seeing Narvette getting stuck in good and proper

I really like the looks of Gregson but he's still developing and I think they just need to be careful with him. I'd love to see him start a game at loose forward one day but with Farrell and Bateman in the back row with him and a firing and fully fit 1-7 to make his job easier.

I agree on Navarette. He really does look to have some potential. They need to get him really fit and keep working on his decisions of when to run and when to pass but he's got all the tools by the looks of him.

Hello again.Of the original 1-17 in the squads you are missing 8 and we are missing 6. The trouble ,from our point of view is a,that 2 players-I won't say whom-are carrying injuries b your strength in depth is phenomemal and ours is very average.See you there.
