Ignoring Hughes as a pure first choice second rower (and Currie through injury), our prop/sr/loose/interchange forwards looks like:

Cooper
Hill
Westwood
Livett
BMM
Philbin
Sita
Crosby
G King

I would probably place King at the bottom of the pecking order. He's a steady player, and doesn't do much wrong. He's more useful to have than not have, but we're now blessed with our best depth of quality pack for a long time. I wouldn't necessarily want to see him leave, but for his own growth and guaranteed game time, a move away might be best for him.

REally dropped out of the rotation hasn't he, mind Philbin (who i thought was too short) is playing well about his size lately.

Is saying both Jack Johnson and Tyler Prell will be going elsewhere and George King looks to be heading to Wakefield.

We might need a couple more to join them to keep this squad together for next season and beyond with the odd addition.
Love us to have another go at netting Tompkins myself.

Which greats are these? Knott, Riley, Mathers and England?


Harrison & Penny? Wakefield was the end of the line for most Warrington rejects.

As a slight aside, has anyone else been heavily miffed by the tone of the reporting of the Toronto game?

It's almost been portrayed that we were culpable in the game descending into farce and a non-event, that all of our quality was a direct result of the numeric disadvantage as opposed to any show of skill and that we dodged a bullet thanks to their indiscipline.

Really unfair in my view, you can only play what's in front of you after all.

Yes MIAW the response has baffled and annoyed me. Despite obviously being wire biased ive no idea what we did wrong in that game. It seems we'd have had to have won by 100 and not celebrate any of our tries.....some real anti-wire feeling out there at the minute which means we must be doing something right.

We wernt supposed to beat them, they had a chance to show the rugby league world how they have progressed to SL contenders and blew it big time. We heard the usual classless response from Rowley how they are the victim's, this performance doesn't help them build a support base over in Canada. Everything about them on Sunday was poor.

They put all of their eggs in one basket for the game. It was disrupt as much as possible, close down as soon as they could when we had the ball and then slow the game down as much as possible to recuperate.

It worked for 30 odd minutes. It then turned into a penaltyathon and when they were completely knackered they shipped in points. Being down to 11 men at times was completely down to them and nothing to do with the referee. Thaler had no choice but to punish their constant flagrance of the rules. I am sure even with 13 against 13, the second half would still have been one sided.

As has been mentioned before, we do not come out of the game with to much credit from the Beebs pundits and other supporters. Guess what, not bothered. They can say what they want. Lets just worry about what we are doing as a club, keep the Ws coming in the win/loss column and let everyone else worry about us.
