Think we have more attacking threat whenever Minchella is on the pitch with that in mind I’d play him for full 80 but split between loose forward and standoff. Have hallas do 40 mins at loose and Milnes 40 at stand-off.

Think some people are taking Newcastle a bit too lightly. There right up there in mix for top of table and we need to treat them like we would York or Doncaster.


I agree with Newcastle being a threat. With that in mind and that Milnes maybe somewhat targeted i'd like to see Minchella at stand off.
Crude and slow Whino, your attack was no better than that of a clumsy child.

Mick Gledhill says on Twitter:

"Joe Keyes is looking at missing out the next three weeks. He has had the back scan and there is no structural damage, just musculoskeletal. He's been placed on a rehab programme to ensure that there's no further repeat of the injury."


That's correct mate.

Injury update with John Kear should be on Bulls TV later.

What's happened to Liam Johnson? Is he injured?


Not injury concerns. He just can't get in the team at the moment.

I'd stick with him. Yes he had a few nervous moments last week, but he did fine. He won't be as nervous this week as he's already had his debut. Also he set up two tries for Ethan with some nice kicks. We have to bite the bullet and give the kids a chance. I don't like the idea of him coming off the bench. This is difficult even for the most experienced half backs.

I remember Ethan Ryans debut. Dropped a simple high kick, next tackle the opposition player ran straight through him. Would have been easy to not play him rest of season, but we stuck with him and he was one of our best players towards the end of the year. Keyes could be out for a month, lets give the young HB a go and stick with him. Let Elliot do what he's been doing, play as a ball-playing 13, or wide-running SR.

Newcastle will be a much tougher prospect than Skolars but I don't think Milnes did much wrong last week so deserves to keep his place IMO.

Now is the ideal few weeks to give him a go considering the opposition.

I'd stick with the same combinations as last weekend. This will be a tougher game with a more intense atmosphere where he (Rowan) will be able to play under pressure.

Unfortunately I can't make the game so will be watching on Proper Sport. COYB!

The best scenario this season is to get promoted and blood the youngsters ready for next season where it will be much tougher. Leave him at half back from the start and see how he grows from week to week.

For me:

Pickersgill
Ryan
Smith
Gibson
Grant
Milnes
Chisholm
Crossley
Hallas
Kirk
Garside
Laithwaite
Minchella

Flanagan
Peltier
Bustin
Wood/Milton

Kirk and Crossley to hammer their middle and allow for the barnstorming Peltier and Bustin later with Flanagan tearing them apart on the back of that. Minchella at 13 so we have a ball player there to help out young Milnes, and give us another option should Milnes have a quiet game.
