After a good narrow win against Fev the next task for the Bulls is Swinton Lions.

I’d personally go with the same team as the Featherstone game except I’d have Magrin in the team barring injury and Storton in for Hallas.

Pickersgill
Hitchcox
Webster
Evans
Ryan
Lilley
Chisholm
Kirk
Wildie
Crossley
Minchella
Farrell
Wood

Flanagan
Green
Magrin
Storton

This game is important in my eyes. On paler we should win this but as we know Swinton will be a tough test.

Hopefully they don't look at Swinton's result from last week and grow complacent.
Still hoping we can get Keyes back fit asap but if not then Lilley can continue his partnership with Dane.

No need to make sweeping changes to the 19, but I'd like us to go with 4 props if possible, with Hallas making way.

I'd like to see Foggin-Johnston get a chance. Also, I'd maybe rest minchella and put in storton or garside. Same goes for Webster, bring in oakes. Magrin to feature on bench if fit

Rest Minchella? Only had one game. Could understand that later in the year. Storton in for Hallas and Magrin in for Oakes for me to shore up the pack. If Webster is carrying a knock then Oakes to centre. Need a good pack though to beat Swinton up front.

Should be a big win based on their squad and performance last week, although how much of that was from minds not being on the game 100% following their teammates nasty injury could be debated.

I'd stick with the same 19 apart from bringing back Storton. Think we missed him on Sunday. Only problem is who do you drop. I'm personally not a big fan of Hallas but Sunday he had a great game so not sure really how you drop him based on form.

If fit Magrin has to go in the 17. It worked out in the end but playing only three out and out props (Wood played as the forth) does not work for me, especially when we don't have the biggest set of back rowers to ease the load.
Don't think i'm biased...
...i'm just very narrow minded!!!!!!!

I wouldn't necessarily disagree, and certainly not about the props, though I though Hallas had a good game on Sunday.

I don't think Hallas can be dropped based on his defensive effort against Fev. I watched it last night and he was like a limpet to every drive that came at him for (I think) 65 minutes. He is a big minute tackler and really really valuable to a team to get the dirty work done in the middle. His carries weren't shabby either. If Storton comes in then it has to be for Oakes. I thought Oakes inclusion was odd, despite the fact he was needed in the end.

Any news on the Webster head injury? He looked class in defence. He rushed out to defend in the middle early in Fev's tackle count and put some monster hits in, especially in the first half. I wonder if this was a ploy to share the defensive workload. His drives from deep made lots of metres too and never ended up on his backside.

I can't see the team changing too much for Swinton - why fix something that isn't broken?

This has to be an attempted troll surely?

I've a feeling we'll be unchanged. Nobody deserves dropping really. I'm sure Kear said post match that Webster passed his head test but Oakes was playing so well he didn't need to bring him back on.
