Ratchford in halves with Ashton at fullback?

Knowing SP it'll be Akauola on the wing..... if he makes the 17

Ashton
Charnley
Wrench
King
Lineham
Austin
Ratchford
Philbin
Walker
Mulhern
Currie
Robson
Hughes

Subs
Butler
Akauola
Davis
Mamo

Won't happen of course
Daryl will be in there and Chris, but really shouldn't be necessary, and it's a long season so rest older players when you can. (Cooper not there so fair play to SP for that at least).
Wrench needs to play for his own development / get monkeys off his back, and Mamo is there to cover all the back positions

Any reason Widdop is rested? Thought Austin would be the one to get a break with his leg issue.

The problem that Price faces is that this is very early in the season and we have a 7 day turn around before the next one. What limited gains he makes by resting players is probably more than offset by not having his first choice team playing together.

Too difficult to guess what price will pick for Swinton but I would probably go with;

Thewliss
Ashton
Wrench
King
Lineham
Austin
Ratchford

Hill
Walker
Mulhern
Currie
Robson
Hughes

Philbin
Davis
Butler
Akauola

We dont have back up in the halves so putting Ratchford in there provides a bit of practice in case of future injuries. Thewliss is an out and out FB and much better in defence than Ashton. He has been hard done to over the past year with hardly any game time so I think he deserves his spot. Ashton can still act as a dangerous attacking threat from the wing.
It's a bit tough on Mamo but I think Wrench needs some encouragement and a vote of confidence so I would prefer to see him get a full game. Davis needs a run and he can interchange with Walker. Akauola..... if you must.

While I agree that Thewlis looks the part at full back and deserves his chance, I am struggling to remember Ashton’s limitations in defence apart from his failure to clear up in the Salford semi final. His link up play from full back is outstanding and his pace unmatched. Ashton to full back and Thewlis to wing instead of Charnley for me.

Thwellis is a much better fullback than ashton. Under the high ball in defence and his positional play ashton is faster than thwellis thats about it tho. Both good players but I agree thwellis deserves his chance as starting fb.

He just doesn’t have just pace though does he ? His timing and support play is a skill - remember his try against Castleford last year. No criticism of Thewlis though who will be a top player.
