Am I alone in thinking that Davies would be better the better prospect at full back...Davies makes insane meters on the return and looks strong, however, I cannot really vouch for his ball playing skills and support play.

Burgess and Manfredi on the wings. Marshall as cover? Sam up to 7 alongside George and Tommy into the starting hooker role, swapping with Powell or MM?

I was literally about to post this, however my blimming phone has logged me out and i cant remember my password :D

Totally agree

His kick returns are superb, however he can be a little fragile under a bomb (no worse than Sam used to be).

Young enough to make a transition IMO. Assuming he does not already have experience of FB (Rogues will know i presume?)
What's the rumpus, Tom?

I'd like to see Powell in the halves with Leuluai & Micky Mac sharing hooker position. Powell can last 80 mins and seems a shame to have him & Micky only on for 40 mins each. As for full back, I'd keep Sam there, think he's our best option at present, see how he goes then let him & Escare fight it out next season. FPN should be on the bench, hasn't done anything to suggest he deserves a starting spot.

Last year we got more out of our props than this year. Why, due to us having 2 extra interchanges as Powell was doing 80 mins. The props were fresher and better last year because of that. Get back to Powell doing 80 mins and use MM to interchange with Lockers. Having Sutton, FPN Lockers and MM all going off within minutes isn't working.
We are playing poorly and the squad needs improving. It is up to the coaching staff to sort it out and if they don't there's not much to look forward to this season.

Well we've got a new head physio. That's something at least?

I'd go as far as to drop Tommy or Sam. Sam would have been dropped by now if not for Escare being injured, he needs to go to 7 asap. Tommy can go for me, we don't need him.

Use Leuluais money on a half decent utility back like Stefan Ratchford.
