Looks like Bateman to centre, pretty disappointing so early in the season.

Wanted 6ft tall left hander who can run 100m on grass between 12/13 seconds.

Early days, but I think that Joel has looked alright in the games I've seen him this year.

They'll be seeing this as a great opportunity to play us so soon after Oz. 3 wins out of 3, given that 2 of those were against Hull & Wire and a 20,000 mile round trip to boot would be a real achievement.

I think Mullen to centre is too much of a risk, I may be wrong but I thought he was a full back, though he played there for part of the Souths game he’s not had a lot of time there.

I’d go Bateman to centre for this one but last year Wane preferred Isa.

Excellent squad that. Wane is taking the opportunities that a fully fit squad is giving him to make it clear to players that you need to play well to keep your place.

I’ve read one or two comments on JT not deserving his spot but I’ve been pretty happy with him so far. He deserves a spot in the 19 at least. I don’t think you can say that for Sarginson or Burgess.

I wouldn't be so confident that they are dropped. Burgess missed the Salford and Hull games injured, Sarginson came off injured in the Salford game too. Has Wane commented either way?

Agreed for once, assuming you're referring to Joel. I don't get how he has a nailed down spot every week when we have the likes of Isa and Hamlin, who will presumably both miss out. He offers little.
Correct, he seems to be untouchable, sooner he's gone the better, one of the last members of the old boys club

I’m not sure what people have seen in Joel this year to warrant the negative comments. He’s been very good so far and is clearly benefiting from a full preseason. Fully deserves to keep his place based on Salford, Hull and Souths.

Force of habit with some.
I think the only players who have been relatively poor have been Burgess and Sarge, and i don't think either of them have been as bad as has been made out.
2 games in and some are looking to end players contracts...

For me - he gives away penalties, his carries are ineffective, and near the try line he runs sideways with the ball in one hand. He is technically far more talented than Isa or Hamlin, but I'd prefer either of them because they run hard and straight at gaps, and aren't as prone to giving up penalties.

As a Warrington fan I’d normally agree with that statement on Bateman at centre. However, having seen Bryson Goodwin play three games for us now I think Wane has it spot on. Goodwin is a monster and Bateman is the safest bet lining up against him.

My big worry was was Russell coping with kicks for Marshall, but we’ve put Mitch Brown there and no one really knows how that will pan out.
