The likelihood is we will be in the bottom 4, so what do we do now? We are losing players to injury again and are now short on wingers and centres which could be absolutely crucial in the eights.
Much as I would like to slam Warrington, I don,t think Salford will win their last two games and overtake us. So the options are(1) Play our best team against Warrington and try to make sure we don,t finish in the bottom 2(and maybe FC) and risk more potential injuries to key players at the worst possible time, or(2) Rest key players and make sure they are fit when we really need them, in the survival play offs.
My opinion(for what it,s worth) is rest key personnel. I would rest McGuire,Lunt, Masoe, Mulhearn, VaiVai,Quinlan, we also need a goalkicker, so even an argument for Tickle.
Lose two or three of these and we are in trouble, bearing in mind how many are already missing.
These eights are going to be tough and we need to be tough,focused and clinical, and must go out to beat the other three SL teams.
No more MPG(or worse) please..do what,s necessary, to hell with the rest.

We have to play our full side strength against Hull. I suspect Sheens will want to build momentum into the 8s. So resting will be unlikely imo

Not for me, we can play who we like. It seems every time we play the enemy we get injuries, even in pre-season"friendlies", which never are.
We had players out of position again because of injuries and could have lost to a team that hasn,t won for 13/14 games.
It,s cost us all season, that,s why we are where we are.
For me, although I would love to beat them,it,s not worth the risk. In the grand scheme of things, this game is almost certainly unimportant. The middle eights dictate SL survival for our club.

You play your strongest team now we’ve got momentum for the first time in about 4 years players can get injured anytime you could rest them now and they could get injured in the first game of the 8s and we still have a slim chance of eighth

Letting Moss go looks a mistake now. If Wallis and Oakes are our wings for the 8s then they will be targeted .Shaw and Carney look unlikely to play and Dagger who could cover doesn't seem in Sheens plans?Oakes in particular has done well when called on but looked shaky yesterday?A quality centre would have been a better signng than T Carney for me? Is there still time to draft anyone in?

In hindsight it would have been better to keep him but he was so far down the pecking order at the time it seemed the right decision to let him go Dagger can cover on the wing

I’d be offering Wakey money for mason Caton Brown seems out of favour and we are definitely needing a decent winger at least

Agree with that, you can,t buy pure pace. he,s got loads. So did Moss but he,s gone.

There again, if we bought him I suppose we would have bought pure pace!
