Lot of assumptions here guys. Let's assume Lockers, Greenwood, Flower and Tommy are all fit and Zak is back, also Powell suspended, I would make all these inclusions. With Saints big threat being down our right, I have real problems with Sarges defence, discipline and errors, so reluctantly I would switch Zak to right centre to account for this and leave Morgan at full back.
My last change would be to include Harry Smith on the bench to bring on when Tommy goes off and Shorrocks goes to hooker.
I truly believe that if we can turn up in the pack, we can do them enough damage on our left to make it close.
I would go with Escare, Davies, Zak, Oli, Budgie, George, Shorrocks, Flower, Tommy, Navarette, Greenwood, Isa, Lockers. Subs, Bullock, TT, Paisley, Smith.

It was Joe Shorrocks on Fifita.

There’s no way I’d move Hardaker from FB. None at all. Sarginson has his faults but he’s not been in bad form really.

Davies
Sarginson

Leuluai (reluctantly)

Best case

Hardaker
Davies
Sarginson
Gildart
Burgess
Williams
Shorrocks
Flower
Leuluai
Partington
Isa
Greenwood
Lockers

Subs
Bullock
Navarette
Smithies
Powell

Doubt we’ll see Leuluai or Greenwood at the very least though. I’d start Partington as he’s aggressive and will set a tone in defence.

At the risk of sounding defeatist, if some of the injured can only play one game over the weekend I'd probably prefer it to be the more winnable game against Salford.

Also please let's not rush players back for the sake of the derby. It might be a painful Good Friday but we've had plenty of good ones through the years. The important task is getting players back 100% fit to help our chances of staying in the division.

Sadly I agree. It won't sit well with most people, but I'd be targeting that Salford game. Anyone with a knock can have a few extra days rest and have a crack at them whilst they're hopefully fatigued from their Friday game.

With Powell banned and Leuluai doubtful, Friday could be a very long day indeed. We may have no choice but to risk Escare at 9.

Sod it, give Bourouh a shot, can't be any worse than playing someone out of position.
