Some interesting opinions, the one thing that stands out as clearly as dog’s balls though is the props situation. Dire sadly :-(

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?


I think bullock and mulhern will make a good pairing off the bench. Also Cooper will set a standard for Philbin to match. I don't think Philbin has been great last year and I certainly think this 'impact' has been questionable. He has as much to prove as Bullock IMO, I hope he gets back to the form from a couple of seasons ago.

Hughes hasn`t figured in any suggested squads yet and if Magoulias is to play at 13, then there doesn`t seem to be a backrow position for Hughes.
With Powell`s captaincy decision, surely it is his intention to play Hughes. I wonder if he intends to select Hughes to play at prop forward?

Ratchford
Minikin
King
Matautia
Ashton
Widdop
Williams
Cooper
Clark
Mulhearn
Currie
Holmes
Hughes

Walker
Magoulias
Philbin
Clark

I just have a feeling that Charnley isn’t Powell’s cup of tea. He/his team made a point of exposing Charnley last season, game 1 was a car crash in truth. Minikin has been brought in for a reason, I can’t imagine he was peanuts money either

Maybe the masterplan is to start Hughes and then allow him to play himself out of the side, then a new captain must be chosen but nobody needs to be upset about it?

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


I was close to putting Thewlis ahead of Charnley based on last season, but I thought overall Thewlis still has time on his hands and a fresh approach for Charnley under Powell might get him back to his best.

As J Clark, Davis and the others they’re not actually bad squad cover, and I think when you look at Thewlis, Wrench, Longstaff, Bullock, Butler, Harrison etc we have better depth than a lot of clubs. Especially bearing in mind that Powell seems to develop average players into good ones.

There are always things that are uncertain when new coach comes in, but I feel more upbeat about this season than I have for a while. Not sure if it’s Powell’s record of improving teams, or just the change of playing style we can expect. Or maybe it’s because the pandemic is finishing.

I put Magoulias at 13 simply because he seems like a typical Powell choice. If we’ve brought a young ball-playing 13 over for just one year, I reckon Powell has a plan. It may well be that Hughes is his initial choice and I’ve called it wrong, but I have a sneaky feeling Powell has spotted something about Magoulias he likes and feels he can develop.

Good subject to be fair and as always opinions are relative. Fir me it as follows:-

1. Ratchford
2. Charnley
3. Mateuvia
4. Wrench
5. Ashton
6. Widdop (c)
7. Williams
8. Cooper
9. Clarke
10. Mulhern
11. Holmes
12. Currie
13. Billy ??

14. Walker
15. Philbin
16. King
17. Longstaff

It’s an exciting formation but props are a concern starting and on the bench but In Powell we believe.

Yep let's hope you are right about Billy M. ... otherwise in reality we do seem to be picking him without any real evidence about how good he is. Not the best way to pick a team. Mind you we'll know a bit more with the two trial games.
