Agree, and a pretty fair assessment. We were an absolute dogs dinner last Thursday and made things even worse as the game progressed. The only positive really is that despite everything they at least didn't chuck the towel in.

As you say Okunbor wasn't brilliant but nobody was but he wasn't terrible either (or get a ban) so hopefully with his first game under his belt we'll see a bit more from him.

No way should Martin be at centre.

It is the most difficult position to play defensively, as proved by Litten, and he shouldn’t be put under that pressure.


We have no centres, and martins played there a fair bit for the academy

There is nobody else, unless its a young lad with zero 1st team experiance

Who do you suggest?

I think Mcintosh has played a bit of centre for Huddersfield, maybe an option with Litten going to the wing? I think it's going to be a mish mash backline whichever way you slice it unfortunately. I'd rather that than throw an academy player into this game it would do more harm than good.

Makes the decision to let Manoa Wacokecoke leave even stranger really, as there's no real centres in the reserves until you get down to Dawson who's too young.

Also AP did state pre season that another outside back could be signed before the season, but nothing came of that either

I watch most home academy games and always follow the teams, I don't think he has ever played then. Could be my old memory letting me down.

Mcintosh would be a better bet, sure he has played there before or Walker at centre, Hoy FB.

I was critical of okunbor last week.
cator going off injured then going a man down meant he had to do more defensive work.
In saying that
the hype, expectations and fact he’s one of the biggest earners in the squad.
Early days yet but I’m expecting better from our overseas players.
My over riding concern pre season was leadership..
Hopefully plenty of improvement to come.

I think McIntosh has filled in at centre before .
Re: Warrington away Friday 23rd : Thu Feb 22, 2024 12:45 pm  
I thought he had. Might be an option?. Litten IMO needs a year on loan somewhere. Not good enough as a winger or centre. Needs bulking up as gets pushed of far to easily. F B is definitely his position. Early days yet for the kid.

Times really are bad when we're discussing McIntosh as a centre

Think we all know, things are pretty bad.

Neither Litten or Mcintosh is ideal.

That's what you get for having 4 injury prone centres.
