An alternative to the doom mongers ‘factual’ thread.

I’m in two minds as to whether another postponed match this weekend would be a good or bad thing.

Financially I’m sure it’s not great.

That aside, in pure playing terms would it help?

We are clearly still missing three crucial players, Brough and above all Arona and Fifita who both seem to transform the team. No doubt in my mind that we become a winning team when those two play. Another week might be enough for both or at least one.

Ditto they may be available for the rearranged gams, all three of them. Both home games as well.

On the down side you still have to win those games or else it’s worthless. If we get more not less injuries two games in a congested part of a season could be a disaster and both against top opposition.

To be honest both at the moment have more negatives than positives. But if I had to chose then I’d rather play those games later in the season in the hope that we get lucky with injuries and others don’t.

Not much comfort there I know and plenty of ifs and buts but sometimes clouds do have silver linings, fingers crossed. :PRAY:

I was thinking exactly the same last night.

Financially, yes we could be worse off, although could we get a better crowd, a bit later in the season when the weather will hopefully have improved.

Also, we do tend to play better in drier conditions

Agree, but I think Warrington can play a bit on dry pitches as well!
I'd go for playing it now,I think we have more of a chance of a win on a heavy pitch, despite still missing influential players. .
In any event what we don't want is fixtures piling up later in the season.

Imo We need to get some game time under our belts ASAP how else are we going to iron out our defensive/attacking structures .You can train all you want but it doesn’t make up for actually game time, these moves we have been keeping under wraps need to be executed in the heat of battle not on the training park.Get all the dropped balls, missed tackles sorted early in the season ,but I fear the elements will win again this weekend .

Strong chance that Storm Dennis will make the decision for us.

At the minute the forecast for Sunday afternoon looks a bit better, I know they change it every 5 minutes, but I think the game will go ahead.......in a bog probably! Surely we need to play, if we get a cup run, trying to fit 2 games in later in the season can't be good really.

Will we miss Brough? For me he was playing poorly at HKR, his short kicking game was terrible before he got injured. He's probably played well in about 4 or 5 games since he came back to the club. I really hope Hampshire/Miller/Jowitt/Walker can forge some kind of connection and play well as combinations, we can't be relying on someone at 37 years of age to get us out of the mire!

A cup run for Wakey is winning 1 in a row! :D

Not really the point as it’s subjective especially based on one game! Regardless you still want all your senior players fit and ready to chose from.
