Idea nicked from Rico. Since no one has initiated a thread on it, what’s everyone’s starting 13 and bench?

I need to work mine out over lunch.

I want Thewlis in there more often. Just not sure how the bench should look under Powell.

Very harsh on walker, but I've put ratchford on the bench as utility cover.

I'd take your pre lunch 15 EW and reticence about leaving Thewlis out.

However, here's the rub with Hughes the two spots could be any two from Bullock and Harrison (not to exclude Doro and Butler with another year under their belts) if we go down the prop route. Whereas a forward/utility approach will throw him up against Clark, Davis Wrench and Longstaff...

Not unhappy with your picks Moe either and highlights concerns re Hughes as captain and whilst typing CW8 with probably my selection apart from Mulhern to start with Philbin impacting.

Really impressed with what I've seen from Longstaff and seriously not looking for a straight selection from anyone based on your first 17 without Hughes. If he's in anyone's 17 I'd be interested to know why, am I genuinely missing something?

For 2022 I am hoping for much better from these we could consider shoe ins.

King (2nd half of season - 1 try)
Philbin
Currie

This is almost what I came up with, except I had Magoulias at 13. Thewlis is the future, and Ratchford was very average last year. Time to make that call. Walker will get game time at the start of 2022 with Clark being absent, and there will plenty of other opportunities.

I have possibly been harsh on Charnley but he has a lot to do to redeem himself after last season. I have offset that by putting Thewlis in, I’m not ready to consign Ratchford to the bench…yet.
I’ve put Margoulis on at loose as I assume the club have brought him over for a reason ( not totally sure why I make that assumption) but I can easily see Longstaff coming in.
I do wonder if Powell will put Hughes on at 13 though given he has named him as captain. Or maybe he will leave him in the second row, use Holmes at 13 and Margoulis from the bench. Who knows?
Just my opinions unless it's a FACT, in which case it's a fact.

Nobody found a place for J Clark yet? And what about Matt Davis? This coaching malarkey may be harder than I thought.
