How do you explain that win today v Huddersfield Giants? Abysmal for 65, superb for 15. Possibly one of the best comebacks in super league history.

Huge game this weekend coming v st Helens, I’d like to think that our game was a better test for the restart.

Dependent on which way it goes, the first 65 you’d be making a number of changes like Briscoe for Briscoe, Smith to start and prior to bench. Mclelland in for Lui.
However at the end of the game, what do we do? We polished the biggest turd ever.

I'd bring in Holroyd in for donaldson, and I agree on McLelland getting a shot, thought Lui looked uninterested today and was totally out of it. We need to meet Saints up front and then allow our backs to move the ball, they will try to punish us with the 6 again rule so need to clean up the ruck massively

Changing your halves after 1 game and after a 4 month break is more likely to do more harm than good

You are only as good as your last game. We were woeful, comeback or not, and one of those main influencers in that was the stand off. He was terrible.

There is a big difference in what you say in the middle of a normal season, and what we have now. It is not like one off game in the middle of good ones. He is clearly overweight and unfit, and you don’t fix that in just one week. He should be nowhere near the side.

I’d have Leeming starting. I’d also prefer a Myler / Gale HB combo. Though he’s standing in admirably at FB, Myler’s getting physically battered a lot. When’s Walker back?

Personally, I would like Lui rested for a few weeks and forced to get fit first albeit, I doubt it will happen.

Holroyd for Donaldson. Hurrell needs to lose some weight too, very unfit.

I probably wouldn't go with Myler at full back again either. Possibly bring Briscoe back into the back 3 or alternatively, give McLelland a shot at full back with Myler in the halves. I suspect in the backs we will likely go same again unless Tom Briscoe comes in for Luke.

Id give Lui another shot. I thinks Saints is too big a game for Mclelland to get thrown into. Im sure Lui will improve on yesterday. He has started the season well before lockdown. Let’s not over react

Will Hurrell be fit for next Sunday?
He seemed to be limping in the second half.
The only change I would make is Holroyd/Walters for Donaldson.
Maybe play McLelland in the Cup game.

Really looking forward to the game - should be a good contest.

No idea how you won that game last night (that Hudds winger should be shot for the tackle in the air, hat-trick or no hat-trick) but if you turn up and move the ball like the last 20 it should be a heck of a game!
