deluded. At best we'll scrape a 4 point win against the worst side in the league, a team who wouldn't be top 3 in the championship. < That is at best. Still think we'll lose. Milner doesn't offer the same as clark at hooker, in fact, he's completely different, less effective in attack, good in defence.
Clarke and Milner are completely different - Milner will play a pattern and a plan and put on the plays the halves tell him to the majority of the time and allow there to be one chef in the kitchen.
Clarke is completely different, on the one hand you have the variety and unpredictability, but on the other hand, your halves will not get the plays they want when they want them, only when he wants - this is more of an issue with younger players that are trying to mke their own names in the game.
Different players for different scenarios and I actually happen to think as a pair, they are brilliant in the 17. For Monday it is actually a day for concentration, game management, set management and completion, not fancy gubbins. First team in front by two scores I fancy to win, that should be enough to dent the armour of the others belief. If Widnes get 12-0 inside 20 minutes, it could stink like my gym bag by half time.
