Acid test against a team with everything to play for, win and we finish second, lose and in all probability we'll end up fourth and playing them again in the knock out match.
Should be the game of the season so far down here.

Massive game. They will be coming to win, we are the form team in the competition at the moment.

There's a real feel good factor at the moment and we should be quietly confident about getting a good result and securing 2nd spot.

If ever there was a match for long time stay away supporters to come and give your team a shout then this is it. The club deserves 16k on next Friday, with Cas bringing a decent following too.

Is the game on SKY?

A pain after the run we've had that we'll likely finish fourth if we lose this. We probably need to win it to have a chance of winning the comp.

Cas are coming into form at the right time and so are we. Feels like a play off a week early.

Should be a cracking game and a good test ahead of the play offs. Team wise you’d have to think Burgess is vulnerable if Marshall is fit to return. We can’t put French back on the subs bench after that and Marshall has earned his spot also. There’s talk that Lockers and Flower will be back and if so I’d go-

Hardaker
French Sarginson Gildart Marshall
Williams Leuluai
Clubb Powell Partington
Isa Farrell Smithies

Flower Navarrete Greenwood Lockers

Not sure they’ve announced yet. You’d think so though on Friday and double up on Sunday with the Salford/KR and Wakefield/London games.

Going back to the original topic though; I agree that this is a huge game and IMO another marker post for our progress.

I’ve drummed and beat us down this season, hand held high. Have I been proved wrong? Absolutely. And I’m bloody well happy I have too. I’d be fine with us not making the GF TBH, disappointed yes but not too upset. The stark improvement from April to now is astounding. Onwards and upwards.

I agree with you if Marshall is back to fitness. Him and French SHOULD give us massive options on both sides of the field.

I thought Burgess did pretty well in the second half but he's just not firing on all cylinders yet. The other two are chomping at the bit and scoring for fun.

Really need to keep Trueman quiet. He played out his skin against FC with his kicking game. Another worry is their forwards rolling over us in the middle.

It was tigerish but we can all admit Cas’ pack is much better than Catalans’. It’ll be a much sterner test

I spoke to Flower tonight. Barring a mishap in training he’s back next week.
