Newcastle (H) : Thu May 19, 2022 2:29 pm  
[exturl] https://www.bradfordbulls.co.uk/article ... nder-clash[/exturl]So. A must win game. And we’ve got 3x Leeds players in because both ourselves and Leeds recognise this is a must win. All forwards. Which means that some of our forwards are going to miss out. Thoughts?

8 former/current Leeds players in that squad.

A big game for both teams. Hopefully Dunning's managed to make some progress with the side in training to improve our attack. I've a feeling it'll be another low scoring game where we struggle to play any rugby. Maybe we should race them in stock cars instead? Alas I shan't be there as I have a more enjoyable social engagement in the diary.

For my sins, I’ll be there and it would be nice to see some entertaining rugby (from us if at all possible!)

We do make it hard work to want to go these days. I think most of us are going out of some feeling of duty and in hope we are entertained for our money.

some of our forwards have deserved to be sat out for a while. I know we don’t have the resources to ring the changes but some of them don’t deserve a guaranteed starting place on current showings.

Holroyd, Mustapha, Baldwinson, Scurr, Crossley, Walker. At least 1, maybe 2 props are not going to be in the 17. Holroyd & Mustapha will be picked, Leeds wouldn't send them if assurances weren't made?
I'm going:

Baldwinson
Doyle
Holroyd
Walters
Wallace
Hallas
Lilley
Patton
Millar
Gill
Dawson-Jones
Foggin-Johnston
Hall

Flanagan
Scurr
Mustapha
Evans

Newcastle have been pretty average this season, looks like they are in that transition of PT to FT.

As others have said, I think a few "untouchables" should be sit in the stands this week.

I expect us to win but it will be another stumble over the finish line. Saw Widnes (who have arguably been worse than us) hammer Whitehaven last weekend. We should have done the same with a big lead but the same old habits of putting the que on the rack and letting them back in it continued.

I do think there's a half decent team in us, we just need someone to come in and change the culture IMO

Firstly, let it be accepted that Bongser is not a troll. His secondary support for The Bulls should have been noted by most regulars by now and, when he speaks of Leigh’s relative strength this season (pleased though it makes him), he is not crowing but merely making observations about teams that he has watched “in the flesh” this season.

Newcastle are in tenth but on the same points as Bradford. Bongser was quite impressed by their performance at LSV, albeit against a team that was still short on numbers. No other side has scored 18 points or more at our HQ this season. No pushover.

Not sure The Bulls are putting the cue on the rack, more likely they don’t have the energy to walk as far as the rack. It has been documented plentifully on this forum that too many players are carrying too many pounds.

Agree with your last point Bull Mania. The new guy needs to come in sooner rather than later especially if Gledders is right for once. :?

FWIW (and hopefully unsurprisingly), Bongser hopes you win. :thumb:

Chester Butler is lining up for Wakefield tonight, so I guess that means we won’t be seeing him soon.
