Where do u get the Sam will play scrum half from? I just can't see it!
I'd say Tierney would be the one to move on if we need to make cap space but he'd have every right to feel badly done to.
I sort of think he will play in the halves a bit. Escare left Catalans because he couldnt get a game ahead of Gigot. I doubt he would sign a 3 year deal at Wigan unless he was under the impression that he would be playing regularly.
Does anyone know hoe long Marshalls contract is? I know he played reserves last year but I wasnt sure how long he had signed for. He's been great so far, particularly under the high ball, and evading the oncoming defenders when catching the high balls.
Marshall is the better than Davies imo but both look good, short term wise the back line should look like this imo
Escare Marshall Burgess Gelling Tierney
Davies is a good player and will get plenty of opportunities but Tierney offers better go foward imo, he also does a lot of scooting from dummy half which helps.
Against Catalan I'd go
Escare Marshall Burgess Forsyth Tierney
The difference is Davies hasn't dropped a single high kick that I can remember whereas Tierney doesn't fill me with confidence when the bomb goes up. He's improved an awful lot from when he first came in though.
Davies has made great meters forward since he came in and had defended very well. I think I'd pick him ahead of Tierney if he keeps his form.
Marshall and Davies are playing well enough to keep their place in the team. They should stay there until there is an injury or drop in form. Dom won't be back for quite while anyway and Burgess will stay in the centre whilst Gildart is out.
