The season kicks off a week today, what do we expect? How would you line them up? I think Salford are in for a bad year with Koukash leaving and them losing Carney and Dobson, plus Lui unsettled to say the least. I'll predict 10-42 and would line up as such:

FB 20 Escare
RW 2 Davies
RC 3 Sarginson
LC 4 Gildart
LW 5 Burgess
SO 6 Williams
SH 1 S.Tomkins
P 8 Clubb
H 9 Leuluai
P 10 Flower
SR 11 J.Tomkins
SR 12 Farrell
LF 30 Hamlin

S 7 Powell
S 16 Nu'uausala
S 17 Tautai
S 19 Isa

Hamlin played his way in front of Sutton in the Leigh friendly for me

Sam will start as FB, Powell will be SH, Joel will play LF with Isa in at SR. Morgan will be on the bench with Sutton. Hamlin may not feature.

I suppose it’ll come down to Fitness. We know Lockers and Bateman won’t play and I agree Hamlin has probably earned his place. The feedback from preseason is that he’s really shone, as has Tom Davies.

Tomkins
Davies
Sarginson
Gildart
Burgess
Williams
Powell
Clubb
Leuluai
Flower
Tomkins
Farrell
Hamlin

Escare
FPN
Tautai
Sutton / Isa

I think Sutton will start at "loose forward"
Personally I would like Escare on the bench but cant remember the last time that SW had a back on the bench. I suppose if SW is planning this switch of ST to the halves etc when TL takes a breather then if he doesn't do it against Salford then when will he make this play?
A back on the bench gives us more options and gives us some cover for in game injuries.
Like a lot of people I took to Hamlin straight away and hope he also gets the nod for a bench place.
How long is SOL out for?

I understand he may be fit for the Hull game and if not, the week after against the Rabbitohs. Personally there’s no way I play him in that game regardless of his fitness with Warrington coming up the week after.

Not a good start for Salford. I’m hearing that Manu Vatuvai has sustained a serious Achilles injury today. Will need to be scanned to see the extent of the injury. I wish him well.

SOL will potentially be ready for the Warrington game (23/02) but most certainly Widnes (02/03)

Is that from inside the club Richie? I'd be disappointed if Hamlin doesn't feature but I guess that's competition for places in action.
