It would make sense to push QLT to 6 and White at 7 and drop Murrell (never going to happen). At least at first receiver there will be a little more zip. Chapman- Smith to fullback. As for woodburn- hall, I really don't know what his best position is. Not big enough for centre but has decent hands. I think he has the makings of a good 6 put I don't think RM's he's ever played there. I don't want to objectify Murrell for our failings this year but I am getting increasingly frustrated that he gets away with being out of shape when he would be a yard quicker if she dropped a stone. Grix could play 6 also but I think he's so banged up.

I think White has to be given a chance.


Dropping Murrell in favour of White would be a disaster. I know he has only played a few games but he does not look up to this standard by some distance. Its no coincidence that when murrell plays well we play well but playing behind a beaten pack and without a good half back partner its no wonder he comes under so much flack when we are not doing well.

Woodburn Hall would make a good centre in a good attacking team but the problem is we are not a good attacking team and his defensive frailties get shown up no matter what position he plays in.

The problem Marshall faces is that he has no problem dropping younger squad members when they do not perform well( Chapman-Smith been a good example who was nowhere near our worst performer at York) yet dare not drop more senior players when they do not perform week in week out.

Hunslet must be worth a punt this week as it really would be no surprise if they beat us and the same goes for Rochdale.

Aye, I remember it well, really looking forward to the game and then bump.
We were due to play Batley at home and the RFL only picked up on the matter after reading a post on the forum questioning if Ostwicks inclusion against Swinton as he had also played for Lezignan in an earlier round.
The game was postponed just a few hours before kick off and Fax were subsequently found guilty and got the boot.
I believe Ostwick was recruited as were several others at the time on the recommendation of Martin Hall?

There’s speed of pace, speed of thought and speed around the ruck and we look slow in all of them.

The only way Muzza would get a yard quicker by dropping a stone would be to tie it round his ankles and throw him off Wainhouse Tower.

Trouble is only good for 1 play.

It's 2019 FFS not Runcorn 1989,we hve to compete with full time clubs at this level.Plodding on field unfit is totally unacceptable and again Marshall should take the blame.Get yourself fit for season,which started in Feb !!! or #### off and play at a lower level.
