Just read an article on the Souths website and we're basically playing their second team on Saturday by the sounds of it. They're holding players back for their charity shield game the following week.

I've mixed feelings on that news tbh. I was thinking the game was a little pointless anyway but that was when I thought we were playing their first team. It now seems even more of a non event in a way but at least now we can probably go with a younger team and an extended bench (which is what they've said they're doing) without the fear of a heavy beating (hopefully).

I certainly wouldn't be taking any risks now and would probably go something like-

Escare
Davies Sarginson Burgess Marshall
Tomkins Shorrocks
Nuuausala Powell Sutton
Isa Farrell Bateman

subs
Tautai Navarette Hamlin Paisley Ganson Mullen

Gildarts leg looks like it could do with the rest and I certainy wouldn't be risking the older lads like Lockers, Leuluai, Flower and Clubb. I'd go with one of Tomkins or Williams and with Williams having been involved in the World Cup Id probably leave him out.

Not sure how many of our young bucks have travelled but for me all of the players who have travelled and didn't play on Saturday should be down for playing ideally in the starting 13. A good chance to benchmark themselves against guys in similar positions with regards to experience and presumably age.

Oh right, didn't realise it's an extended bench.

I thought this "pure" friendly was general knowledge, I heard about it last week, messaged some mates who have travelled over and they were all aware that it wasn't a competitive match and were disappointed with that.

Personally, I think it's extremely poor for the travelling contingent, but suits me with Warrington the following week.

Looking at the team photos there’s been no sign of Forsyth or Jack Wells and I think the plan was to take 25 players (but from what I have seen I think it’s 26). I wonder if it’s a warning that they want more from the pair if them or if they’re carrying knocks?!

Mullen, Shorrocks, Ganson, Field and Paisley look to be the youngsters who’ve travelled with Navarette, Nuuausala, Hamlin and Bateman others who’ve not played.

Anybody know if Wells has travelled? I’ve not seen him on any photos at all. I really like the lad but he seems to be very much on the edge of the squad.


I believe Wells has recently had a small op on a foot injury

Some great players,always makes me think what could have been when I see Amos Roberts,he was absolutely brilliant in 2010 and looked nailed on for man of steel had he played the full season,such a shame injury cut his career short.

I thought that he had broken a bone in his foot against Leigh.

In a weird way that’s good to hear about Wells. I’m a huge fan and would love to see him kick on this year. I was wondering if there had been some issues behind the scenes. Wane does seem to have hinted during pre season that he wants more from a few of the younger lads.
