Gone for the season if rumours are true.

Will be missed, puts a hell of a shift in each game! How do we move players around for these last 2-3 games?

Leuluai 9, Williams and French in the halves. We’ve been dusted by Saints each time we’ve played them so time to try something different.

Huge blow in these games. He’s perfect for play off rugby and we don’t have anybody in his mould to play at hooker. We have a number of options to think about. I noticed Shorrocks warmed up so guess he’s back in the mix. Maybe we’ll bring Sammut in or we could go with a youngster like Burrouh or Harry Smith.

Personally I’d put Williams and Sammut in the halves with Tommy at 9 and French on the bench

Huge blow losing an 80 minute hooker.

Sammut/Shorrocks are still injured I think.

French at halfback doesn't work atm as well so a tough situation.

That combo looked appalling tonight. No direction whatsoever. Personally I’d bring in either Smith/Bourouh.

I'd go Sammut in the halves. Use French on the wing where he's played really well for us

When Powell went off the organisation went to pieces. Passes to men stood still showed they needed someone to take over but it didn't seem to happen.
Great defence and a lot of hard work out there but at times we do need leadership to organise the attacking structure.
French was the fastest man on the field and we had him playing dummy half last 10 when Salford were out on their feet. What's that all about?

I think French is a quality player and we need to find room for him in the team. If that means on the wing, at least, for now, fine, Obviously, that would mean sacrificing either Marshall or Burgess, but so be it. Crazy thought: what if they'd put Marshall to dummy-half, and French to the wing?

Maybe if French and Williams are given a full weeks training it will be different,you cant expect 2 players that aren't used to playing together to suddenly become a world class partnership
