So what’s everyone’s thoughts on this game? Leeds no doubt will be hurting after being played off the park by Warrington tonight. What do we need to change after the Saints game and what will it take to beat Leeds?

Go with Escare at 7 and Tommy at 9 with Powell on the bench

Could well be a bad result for us that Leeds one tonight as they’ll be hurting. We need to start much quicker then we did at Saints for starters. We looked sluggish compared to their quick players around the middle but that totally changed when Hamlin and Bullock came on. I’d look to split them two up. I’d also go back to the Salford friendly tactic of Greenwood on the bench for 20 mins with Faz moving in to the middle to spell Lockers when he needs a rest.

Hardaker
Davies Gildart Sarginson Marshall
Williams Leuluai
Flower Powell Bullock
Isa Farrell Lockers

Clubb Hamlin Greenwood Escare

Escare isn’t a 7. Until Sammut is available I’d say leave it as it is. Powell at 9 and Leuluai at 7 took us through the super 8s unbeaten and won us a grand final. One game doesn’t mean we need to hit the panic button.

I’d agree with one bad performance is just that bad day at the office

I tend to agree, it’s in the forwards were we need changes. Put Farrell back to the left , Greenwood to sub. He can go to the left and Farrell to loose when we spell lockers.
I never thought I’d say this but we need Tautai back at the expense of either Navarette / ISA and start with a front row of Flower & Bullock as props.
As a tweak in the backs I’d bring in Hankinson for Sarge as we could do with a bigger and better defensive centre against Hurrell.

In both the Saints game and the Wire/Leeds match the intensity was set by the opening props of Saints and Wire. We need to emulate that which means replacing Navarette at the start. I'd go with Clubb and Flower with Bullock, Hamlin and Tautai/Kibula on the bench. Move Farrell left and Greenwood right.
I think Lam will still go with Powell 9, TL 7 & George 6.
Hardaker has to be 1. The backs same as at Saints.

We need a better start against Leeds starting props as Bullock and Hamlin were better than Saints interchange front rowers and will probably be better than Leeds two interchanges.

I do hope they practice the end of sets this week as we need an improvement there if we are to get a win.

Some good suggestions here and I'd add we need to lose the inside ball to Farrell as it was entirely predicable and easy to defend. That said, I like the Farrell left, Greenwood bench, switch with Lockers rotation which would solve said problem anyway as Farrell's natural running lines are much better from the left.

We need to move the ball earlier too. It was noticeable that both Saints and Wire moved the ball out wide much quicker than we did. In a limited interchange game I think this tactic is a must.

Games like this where we miss not having a running 9, Wire rolled Leeds down the middle and Clark took full advantage.
I think Leeds were lucky not to be on a team warning the way they kept getting pinged at the play the ball.
If they'd gone down to 12 men that score could've been anything.
