Interestingly Castleford provide no-one for the squad on a weekend when we play each other.

We would have had a free weekend only for the bad weather when the original game should have been played. Perhaps we should do what Cas U19's academy did this weekend and postpone the match?

And annoyingly the players who play in Denver will have a short turnaround as we play Leeds at home the following Thursday!!
SAINTS THE ORIGINAL AND PERENNIAL CHEATS

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy
For 75 - 0 you get sod all.

Wigan had eight in a row
Saints have five in a row

Gale is injured, so it’s not like he’ll be playing.
McMeekan doesn’t deserve a place given his form so far this year, though he has played well for the last three weeks or so.
Shenton never gets picked.
Watts will need to get through the rest of the season without getting sent off before he can be trusted at international level. He’s been playing very well and would be unlucky to miss out if he didn’t have such a short fuse.
Oliver Holmes just isn’t well-known enough for Bennet to pick him. He has been our best backrower this season but has very much gone under the radar.
Eden could score 10 tries a game but Bennett won’t pick him because he made one or two mistakes when he played for Brisbane.

In fairness to Bennett he has an embarrassment of riches to pick from on the wings and he’s named three better players then Eden in that position (plus another couple have been left at home).

Indeed.
Though I do think some don’t realise how many metres Eden makes in kick returns with his pace. Hall and McGilvary might make a metre or two more in contact, but Eden can make ten metres more before contact with the pace he returns the ball. This idea that making an odd metre in contact is exaggerated in my opinion. I’d rather have someone who can start the tackle count ten metres further up the field than someone who makes an extra metre.
As ever, his weakness is defensive. Shenton is good at communicating with him, but he still has a tendency to find himself in no-man’s land defending the line.

On a separate note, is Leuluia still eligible for NZ? Might he be missing too?

He is and the local journalist thinks he may be selected. Hopefully not from our point of view.

Issac Luke looks to be back to his best form lately.
