Please don't bring him back on for the 2nd half - a liability for the first 15. Needs at least 4 weeks of reserves on the back of that. Took him 5 seconds to do a 180 turn - he was getting mauled at the play the ball.

How on earth the coaching staff thought he was ready is beyond me.

Sadly i warned of G Burgess decline throughout the off season. He is nothing like the player he once was. Im not saying he wont get better (he cant not after that) but the talk of him being the best prop in the league is fantasy land.

Sky reporter mentioned a potential hip injury, IIRC he missed the Leeds preseason game with a knock? Hope we've not signed a crock.

Looks like injury to me but that raises the question on why he was picked carrying it. Poor coaching decision.

He's had chronic hip issues over a number of years so we'll have to see how it affects him over the year. For the time being though there surely needs to.be some time in the reserves. It's not as if we're lacking prop forwards.

Picked and picked to start! Crazy stuff really. If they knew he wasn’t right then maybe you’d forgive a bench spot at a push but not a starting spot. It very nearly cost us the game because sadly he was that bad.

How Bullock wasn’t selected tonight after two good performances against Leeds and Leigh is beyond me.

My thoughts exactly re Bullock, unless he had an injury in training I can think for the life of me why he wasn’t selected.

Don’t think Lams a fan, which I guess is down to training attitude. He looked in great shape in those pre season games, much fitter, slimmer and he was getting out better at marker. He was excellent at Leigh yet Lam said he was good ‘at times’, I knew then he wouldn’t be playing this week.

Looking at tonight Burgess needs some time to get right and then after that I thought Havard was excellent when he came on. Liam Byrne did well and Bullock should join those two in the side at Cas. I love Partingtons attitude but he lacks go forward and I’d probably just plump for Clubb over him.

It’s one game so trying hard to make a judgement but that was a debut to have serious cause for concern about. He’s got a target on him and he’ll get bounced around the league like a rag doll if his conditioning remains so poor.
