Oh and Handley is turning into a very good player indeed.
Agreed.

Good win. Nice to see some of the scapegoats doing well. (Handley, L Sutcliffe, Donaldson.
Tough choice for Wembley but for me Walker has to get the nod. Wonder if we could find a bench spot for Myler as can cover few positions. Might be bit light bench with Dwyer too though.....

After a poor 20 minutes i thought we responded strongly.
The pack got into the grind & Gale got his kicking game spot on.
Handley is a quality winger imo he may have a poor game here & there but he is improving his consistency & his reading of the gane gets better & better.
Donaldson played well & his consistency & work rate are proving valuable much better than ive given him credit for previously.
L.Sutcliffe has done a good job at Centre but i still think if he wants out then he shouldnt play simple as that.
I also think Mikolaj has been quality & is living up to his potential.
A good win now get them isolated ready for Wembley.

Super League is beginning to look easier for Tommy now. Im sure the game has slowed down for him and hes getting used to the physical side of things. Thought he did a nice job again 2nite and made a good impact off the bench. Really pleased with the progress hes making. Suspect he might cop a ban though rightly or wrongly.

If he doesn’t get banned would you pick him for the final?

Another good performance after a shaky start.
The one thing we did find out last night is that Myler is not a half back.
I must be the only one who has thought Handley to be a good winger.
Yes he has the odd blip but overall far better than the Briscoes and is getting better all the time.
Same with Donaldson who puts his body on the line every time he plays and puts in a bucket load of tackles.
Mik again played well so did Gale.
For me I would still play Myler at FB with Walker missing out.
Looks like Cuthbertson will get in to the 17 at the expense of Holroyd.
The only other comment is that if Mylers pass was called for a forward pass then the one from McNammara for Savelio`s try should have been called forward.
And not sure why Last didn`t stick Connor at HB as Mc Nammara had a decent game last time at FB.

Thought their young winger stood up to getting targeted all game exceptionally well. Quite impressed with aspects of Hull actually, especially in the circumstances - but their D was too soft on several occasions once their middles tired.

Donaldson has been great really, hats off to him.

Myler give us probably less mistakes and better linking to the line, Walker gives us x-factor and a better running game. I’d take his injury into account (see how he reacts after that full game) before putting Walker back in at FB; he needs to be fully fit.

For me Cuthbo is a solid option - but with Prior, Smith potentially already in the side, how many loose forwards to we really need...? What we do need is punch and Holroyd gives us some of that. At this stage in his career Holroyd isn’t as good a player as Cuthbo, but I would pick him because of the value he brings in his role. Holroyd, Ava and Mik are an awkward combo to handle for opposition sides and we need to get on the front foot of Gale and Lui/Myler are going to control.

I thought although Scott tried well that he was the cause of at least three of Leeds tries.

I think the only selection question for the final is Walker or Myler. Cuthbo for me will only get in now if Holroyd is banned. Cuthbo would have played last night if he was going to play the final otherwise he won't have played for nearly three weeks prior to the final.

I think it would be a good experience at a very early age for a prop if Holroyd got to play in the final and could set his career up. Further, I think he currently offers the strong hard yards and is reliable whereas Cuthbo can be prone to the odd error and isn't particularly needed when Prior and Smith are around.

I hope Holroyd isn't banned as it was a nothing incident but the RFL seem keen to punish it. Would Tues night count as part of his ban? Presumably, if he gets banned then Sarginson does also.

Finally, I would have had Sam Walters in last night over Bodene Thompson. This highlights why his signing was bad as this was the perfect opportunity to throw Walters in with a strong side and see how he went. I thought Thompson was pretty poor last night too, stifled the attack on too many occasions.

If Holroyd is banned surely it will only be one game? The Warrington match will take care of that
Leeds Rhinos? 8 for you, Leeds Rhinos! You go, Leeds Rhinos.

And none for Castleford Tigers. Bye!
