So would i but didn't he retire from playing at Hull KR?

Having seen the two friendlies : think backs pick themselves due to injuries

Forward s

Arona
Hood
Fifita
Ashurst
Batch
Pitts

Subs
Kaye
Whitbread
Tanginoa
Battye

Think personally tanginoa, whitbread have to prop purely to try and put out our biggest front row

Perhaps crowther should start in second row purely for his defence

e


Other than getting the number 13 shirt I don’t think Pitts has featured there in any of the friendlies. He may have briefly switched into the role but it would be a strange move indeed to not play him at 13 in any pre season games then stick him at 13 round one when he’s played second row last 2 seasons for us almost exclusively.

Don’t think Crowther would have the mobility to be sliding in defence consistently and he’s used to playing as a middle.

Regarding the Tanginoa to prop. His best position in SR for me but for Hull I would be tempted to throw him in at prop in place of Arona who has probably been the least effective prop in pre season.

Agree with Batch though he’s earned at least a spot on the bench vs hull.

I do think the only thing we are lacking is another prop with some punch and size. Maybe there’s someone worth a punt in the loan market. Dan Norman from saints maybe? Think he’s in his last year of his saints contract so maybe be worth a look. Certainly has the size.

My reckoning is keep our two old work horses wrapped up until the heat goes out of the game ,fifita always does best against a tiring defence and Arona isn’t a spring chicken .Walker n kay can play most of back line between them ,so I’d be happy to see this team against hull .

I like the team but I think you can really only have one of Walker and Gaskell if Gaskell is in the pack

Nice to have team selection headaches poptart , I mean I have nothing against Ayden ,Crowther , Batch and the rest ,,their time will come sooner rather than later I suspect with the rigours of super league and always good to have players breathing down your neck to keep you on your toes .Also if this team we have buy into the poaching philosophy and what he is trying to establish with our heritage,I don't think this has ever been done at the club before ,and hopefully the team will embrace this, and will prove a real winner both off and on the field .

Gaskill is not a loose forward and Lino is injured.

Miller
Walker
Battye
Hood
Arona
Tanginoa
Pitts
Crowther

Fifita
Whitbread
Batchelor
Kay

In defence of the pack let's not forget that they played 20 minutes down to 12 men against a team wanting a scalp so I wouldn't base much on what we saw on Sunday. I also have to mention the slope, I know it's the same for both teams except it isn't. It's a positive advantage to Fev who know exactly how to take advantage. It's not the reason Fev won, I thought they were really up for it as I expected but it does affect the opposition, especially pampered SL teams who are now used to playing on bowling greens.

Finally, there are a lot of positives about POR these days and I can accept the slope as quirky but those floodlights are totally unacceptable, the corners were actually dark. Even with a full set of bulbs, they would be poor but with a fair few broken they were very poor.


I think you're right. I don't go and watch Fev unless they're playing us but I'd hazard a guess that every time they win the toss they choose to play downhill first half and try and build a lead.
We noticeably struggled to make ground in the first half while they made plenty of metres in every set. We improved once we started playing downhill but being behind on the scoreboard at that point and having spent a lot of the first half defending we weren't as effective as Fev had been.

Lino will be running out against hull I can feel it in my waters ,and I put gaskill at loose as he has a great pair of hands and vision and not too shabby kicking game ,and for me that’s a good point to start him at IMO ,plus if a half goes down he steps into the breach .

Who do you think should play at loose forward? Crowther played there against Leeds and Featherstone.
