Batch definitely has to go back to right SR and keep tanginoa on the bench ready for the last 30 minutes for some impact and give batch a rest.


I agree, JC at loose for the extra defensive strength in that first 20 so we don't rack up points early on. Kelepi off the bench for fresh legs especially in this weather. Will be a tough one in the current climate. Need to be on it with our discipline so we don't tire ourselves out constantly defending.

Hope they have been watching our defensive reads (or lack of them) in training and are working on strengthening them.

Need to slap the factor 50 on my swede and drink a gallon of water to survive the 80 tomorrow, never mind the players. I'm struggling to function normally never mind play Rugby League :lol:

This is our 23rd game this season and we still haven’t sorted out our defence on a consistent basis. We have had problems with opposition wingers running in hat tricks for three seasons so if we don’t know by now I think it might be a little too late.
The one thing that is currently working in our favour is the on field discipline of the Toulouse players who have managed to blow winning positions in the last two games.

I agree opposition wingers always seem to have an overlap yet its still happening with the new coaching team,this is why fans are pulling their hair out. Are the coaching team to blame or is it the players?

I used to pull my hair out but, not so much (hair) these days :D
Hard work and commitment has to be the starting point.

We can do it, as we did v Saints and Cas. We have to go all in, nothing else will be good enough and we may still come second.
We could do with the Wigan Team coach getting stuck on the M62 and have no air con and half of them come down with a mystery virus.

It mentions that Hood is sick (probably of losing) but nothing about Fifita unless I missed it.

Not sure he is. Bored is at a funny stage. Looks great at reserve level but yet to spark at first team.

Also whenever Walker has played hooker he’s looked ok tbh. But Hood is a loss.

Funny but in all our time in SL hooker is the one position we’ve done ok in. But since Woody left it’s not been great.

Who’s the Academy hooker, is it Camplin??

Normally I’d say great but didn’t make much difference v Saints or Catalan. All season we e had the opportunity to play weakened opposition and failed
