I agree unless there busted what's the point obviously love him or loathe him give cockayne a farewell game something that I felt Morgan should have done with Stanley Gene


Tbf, there's a bit of a difference between a play-off game, as it was in 2009, and a post-promotion celebration game.

It is a weakness of this format that we won't have our strongest possible team out and I feel a bit for Leigh and Widnes. But Leeds were already sending players for surgery when they failed to beat Hudds last year, and it is only sensible we do the same now.

Iirc, he played in our first SL play-off game at Headingley, but was dropped when we played Wigan at CP the week after.

Looking back at the results, I think third must have have still been possible at that stage. And tbf, the timings would have been a bit odd potentially. What if he'd been needed against Wigan having already done his big farewell?

Cockayne is very lucky that things have fallen as they have, rather than Gene being unlucky.

I think I'll bow to your superior knowledge :D and yes Cockayne is very lucky I still can't quite believe it myself

Unless they are injured what is the point of resting players with only two matches to play? Why did you pick Blair to start and Jewitt on the bench from the regulars over the last few matches?


Because Blair is going home, and Jewitt is the most senior front rower with Scuton going for surgery soon.

He's got another year left on his contract and has apparently stated he will be staying.

Cannot imagine Bobby wouldn't want to play for us next season.
