We started this season with 3 straight wins! Although luckily for us, Holmes was banned for 2 of then.

After Wigan probed our right hand side defence with kicks & realised how frail it was they must have thought Christmas had come early. For all he may be good at returning kicks ,is Thewlis actually tall enough or a good enough jumper to compete for incoming bombs ?

We won because the players continued playing the way they were playing the season before.
And then...

Looking at the Wigan game in isolation, Holmes was much more involved 63 tackles playing at 13. I’m not sure what our back rowers are providing in terms of the structure Powell is playing, regardless of who plays there, they just don’t seem involved in the game.

Long term I would love to see what he could do at stand-off.

If toulouse beat wire and saints beat Wigan, I think toulouse have 3 winnable games. Catalan are tredding water and being a Derby toulouse owe them one. Hull FC have been very poor recently. Saints are not unknown for giving their players a rest.
We can be bold enough to make a stand and do battle for our views and beliefs. But we must strive to be mature enough not to resort to unnecessary personal attacks upon people with opposing views.

Long term I think a really good fullback could become an excellent one.!

Part of my frustration with Dufty signing is that, of all positions, we are well stocked at fullback. Ratchford, Thewlis and Ashton are all full backs by trade, then Matautia could back up. It’s a quick fix

I agree with this and if the forwards go well next year, oh for a proper half

Our back three v Wigan looked very frail. Oh those golden days ... when we had Ratchford, Lineham & Charnley!
Our lads currently look lovely in space but the game is rarely like that. It is pretty obvious what Tolouse will do.

The stats from the game don’t make good reading for the forward pack, Walker had the most metres! That is very worrying. Clark made 2 metres, he must have stumbled!!
